Delhi capitals clinch victory despite sanju samson’s heroics.

Despite Sanju Samson’s valiant 86 runs, Rajasthan Royals fell short against Delhi Capitals, losing by 20 runs in Tuesday’s IPL match. Delhi posted a formidable total of 221-8, propelled by Jake Fraser-McGurk’s rapid 50 and Abishek Porel’s attacking 65.

Rajasthan appeared strong in their chase until Samson’s dismissal turned the tide in Delhi’s favor. Despite late efforts, Rajasthan could only manage 201-8, with spinner Kuldeep Yadav and fast bowlers Khaleel Ahmed and Mukesh Kumar making key contributions.

Tristan Stubbs’ late charge and Gulbadin Naib’s efforts added crucial runs, but Delhi held firm to secure their sixth win in 12 matches. Despite the loss, Rajasthan remains a strong contender for the playoffs, holding second place behind Kolkata Knight Riders.

Meanwhile, in a historic moment, Yuzvendra Chahal became the first Indian to claim 350 T20 wickets, underscoring his mastery in the format. Despite this feat, Delhi emerged victorious, showcasing their dominance in the IPL.
