FRIDAY, APRIL 16

Rajasthan Royals won a thriller by three wickets against Delhi Capitals. Rishabh Pant made a fifty but DC were able to score just 147/8, with Jaydev Unadkat picking up three wickets and Mustafizur Rahman two. RR were 42 for 5 in reply but David Miller's half-century kept them in the game. Chris Morris batted at No. 8 and stayed unbeaten on 36 off 18 to help the side over the line with two deliveries to spare.

A homecoming. On the night, Jaydev Unadkat did little wrong. Three wickets in the powerplay set the game up and then he collaborated with Morris to see the side home. It was also good comeback for David Miller, who struck a crucial half-century to star in RR's win against DC.

A mistake on our behalf. Delhi Capitals coach admitted that not bowling out R Ashwin was a mistake. "He had bowled beautifully. Three overs, none for 14. I thought he bowled beautifully tonight. Probably a mistake on our behalf, and something we will be talking about later on."

The Riyan Parag interview. He's just 19. He's got the talent and Rajasthan Royals know it. Parag has been given the responsibility of finishing matches in IPL. Here's how chats with Virat Kohli, Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes shaping Parag's cricket. [VIDEO INTERVIEW]

DC name replacements. Shams Mulani named short-term Covid-19 replacement for Axar Patel. The franchise has also signed Aniruddha Joshi to replace injured Shreyas Iyer.

Battle of 'keepers. MS Dhoni is in desperate need to inspire CSK. KL Rahul led them to a sensational opening win over RR. Will Punjab Kings make it two in two?
