    "Any team that loses the quality of Ben Stokes is obviously gonna be a big loss, it's very unfortunate that happened, but at times you gotta put your body on the line and unfortunately did some damage. I have got a role in that team that I've got to perform and my role is to bat lower down the order and finish games and when the opportunity comes I gotta take with both hands, but like I said, If I'm not batting it means we are winning. Think two weeks after the auction there was quite a lot of added pressure and I was trying to figure out how to handle it, but at the end of the day once you cross that line no matter what your price tag is you gotta perform to the best of your ability and try to win the game for your team,"

    IPL 2021, RR vs DC Live Updates

    Hello and welcome to the live blog of IPL 2021 Match No. 7 – Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals in Mumbai. The contest will pit two young keeper captains against each other at Wankhede. Just like the WC 2011 final, isn’t it? But the situation is a bit different. Rishabh Pant’s DC will enter the ring on the back of a terrific win against CSK. The adrenaline rush will surely be high as they look to consolidate their position with another win. RR, on the other hand, have a big task to complete. They lost the last game with one of the smallest margins and will be desperate to bounce back in the tourney.
