IPL 2022 Highlights, DC vs RR: Buttler ton helps Rajasthan Royals bag dramatic 15-run win at Wankhede
IPL 2022 Highlights, Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals: Sanju Samson's side won by 15 runs at the Wankhede Stadium against Delhi Capitals to reach the top of the points table
IPL 2022 DC vs RR Highlights: When the chase began, 223 seemed improbable. David Warner and Prithvi Shaw got them off to a steady start before two quick wickets pegged them back. Rishabh Pant and Shaw looked to rebuild, but failed. The game kept slipping away from Delhi despite two bad overs from Rajasthan but Lalit Yadav kept the chase alive before Rovman Powell sent Wankhede into Euphoria. With 36 left in the final over, he smashed three straight sixes before a non-ball fiasco got Obed McCoy to settle his nerves and eventually Rajasthan Royals won by 15 runs. Earlier, Rajasthan started slow with Delhi Capitals keeping things tight before Jos Buttler and Devdutt Padikkal broke free and stitched a record 155-run stand. Padikkal scored his maiden fifty for Rajasthan, but departed shortly after. Buttler's carnage continued as he reached his third century this season and fourth in IPL career, fifth in T20s before captain Sanju Samson's fiery cameo knock in the end propelled the Royals to 222 for 2 in 20 overs, which is now the highest score this season, breaking past their own record.

Rishabh Pant in the no-ball incident
“I think they were bowling well throughout the game but in the end Powell gave us a chance, I thought that no-ball could have been precious for us but it is not in my control. Yes, disappointed but can't do much about it. Everyone was frustrated (in the dugout) that it was not even close, everyone in the ground saw that, I think the third umpire should have interfered and said it was a no-ball. Obviously it wasn't right (sending Amre onto the field) but what happened with us is also not right, it happened in the heat of the moment. It was the fault from both sides and it is disappointing as we have seen some good umpiring in the tournament. It is disappointing to go so close especially when the other team has scored 200+. I think we could have bowled much better. I can tell the guys to keep their chin up and prepare for the next one.”

“Wankhede is always one of those wickets, as a batsmen if you are set you can go after the bowling. Initially Jos was going well and I was just trying to give him strike as much as possible, once we got into that rhythm we were just feeding off each other. We both knew the bowlers and areas we can target, we were looking to do that and waited for the opportunities. It's a treat to watch him (Jos Buttler) bat and I hope he continues to score a lot of runs for us. I felt 180-190 is par and with the kind of bowling line-up we have, we should be able to defend that. I can't compete with him right now (six hitting off Buttler) , he is just too good at the moment.”
