Boult adds another to his kitty by cleaning up Yadav

Rajasthan Royals would be delighted with the win over Delhi Capitals. They hardly broke much sweat in clinching victory at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati. These are early days in the tournament but they will be happy with the consistency that they have shown so far. Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, will be sweating now. They look listless and clueless. David Warner, their skipper, has gotten two fifties but hasn’t looked at his fluent best. The spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel also haven’t been able to exert any kind of pressure. Nortje has been expensive and the list keeps going on and on.

Trent Boult made the most of the new ball to push Delhi Capitals on the backfoot in a steep chase of 200. The required run rate has already ballooned to 11 with Capitals trying to recover from 36 for 3. Earlier, Jos Buttler bashed 79, Yashasvi Jaiswal scored a sprightly 60 and Shimron Hetmyer produced a cameo of 39* off 21 deliveries.
