IPL 2022 LIVE: The Delhi Capitals beat the Rajasthan Royals by eight wickets in a must-win game at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai on Wednesday, keeping their IPL 2022 playoff hopes alive.
Chetan Sakariya made an immediate impact with his return to the side. He ended with figures of 2/23 including a vital wicket of the tournament’s top scorer Buttler.
He said, “It felt really good to contribute to the team’s victory.” I was pleased to dismiss Jos Buttler, who has been in excellent form and taking his wicket was a significant achievement for me. I followed through on my plans and am pleased with my overall performance.”
Chetan Sakariya bowled a seam-up full delivery that got it to move in a bit. Buttler couldn’t get near the middle of the bat and dragged it straight to mid-on off the thick inside half. His attempt to whip it over the ring was unsuccessful and was caught by Shardul Thakur.

“We will try to stay as relaxed as possible as we go into the next game,” Sakariya said of the team’s mindset ahead of their next match against Punjab Kings on Monday. It is not good to think too much.
For the time being, we’ll try to enjoy a few light moments before focusing on our upcoming game.”
“We needed a win at this stage of the tournament and hopefully, we can carry forward this momentum into our next two games,” said Delhi Capitals fast bowler Anrich Nortje, who took two wickets against Rajasthan Royals.
Warner and Marsh paced their innings well. They were cautious at the start which helped them to save wickets for later.
To qualify for the playoffs, the Delhi Capitals will need to win their final two league games. “You get used to these kinds of situations and you just focus on what you have to do,” Nortje said when asked about the situation. We need to think about what we need to do and then just do it without worrying about the results.”
This wicket reminded me of Perth Stadium: Mitchell Marsh
IPL 2022 LIVE: The first four or five overs of powerplay were some of the most difficult batting I’ve ever seen in T20 cricket. It was swinging, with a bit of seam and bounce, and it reminded him of the Perth Stadium wicket.
I felt like I was hitting the ball as I wanted to the last couple of games. When asked about the LBW decision that Royals didn’t review. He said “I honestly believed I had smashed it first and was unconcerned. Which is probably a good thing because when I think I’m out, I tend to look guilty.”
