After two high scoring encounters at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai this IPL 2021, where all the four innings saw a 180+ total, tonight’s game came off as a complete contrast. Delhi managed to score only 147 runs in the first innings, which is never enough at the Wankhede off late. However, Rajasthan had made a mess after their top four were bundled out for single digit scores. But David Miller’s half-century and Chris Morris’s late cameo helped Rajasthan fetch their first win of the 14th edition.

Jaydev Unadkat’s miser spell


After a series of lacklustre performances in IPL 2020, Jaydev Unadkat made an exceptional start to the 2021 edition of IPL. Predominantly bowling his overs in the Powerplay, Unadkat had bagged three wickets for just 12 runs in that phase with a dot ball percentage of 66.7 percent. This set a perfect platform for the rest of the bowlers. He finished his full quota of overs in one stretch and ended up with figures of 3/15. His economy of 3.8 in this innings, is his personal best in an IPL match in which he has bowled three plus overs.

Delhi’s run-out problems


When things are going according to the plan, the worst possible way to get out is through a run-out. Delhi have been one of the victims of it in the IPL. In tonight’s game as well, when Rishabh Pant had registered a crucial 50+ score to pull them out of the woods, he was dismissed through a run-out, their 107th run-out in IPL. Then, Ravichandran Ashwin, one of the slowest runners, was also dismissed through this mode, making it to 108. The 108 dismissals through run-outs for Delhi is the second most for a team in IPL. Punjab Kings have suffered one more than Delhi to have the infamous record to their name.

Once in a blue moon

In venues like, M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru and Wankhede, Mumbai, sixes rain. However, tonight wasn’t the case, at least in the first innings. Delhi had scored 147 runs for the loss of eight wickets without a six. In the history of IPL, only once has a team won after not scoring a six in the first innings. More importantly, this was the first instance of an innings without a six at Wankhede in IPL. In addition, the score of 147 set by Delhi is the joint third highest score without a six in the innings.

Most deliveries bowled before a six


In the first match played this season at the Wankhede, there were 15 sixes hit and 24 in the second. But in the third match between Rajasthan and Delhi, there wasn’t one for 35.2 overs. The 212 balls taken to hit the first six of the match are the most deliveries bowled in an IPL match before hitting one. Previously, in 2014, at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, in a match between Mumbai and Bangalore, 186 balls were bowled before a six. Interestingly, in the next 26 balls, there were seven sixes without a four.

Rajasthan’s defiance against one of the best death bowling


Rajasthan required 58 runs to win in the last five overs and Delhi hadn’t conceded more than that many runs to lose a match in IPL history. A tough ask was in order for Rajasthan and they achieved it to fetch their first win of the season. Rajasthan’s 60 runs in the last five overs is the highest Delhi have conceded to lose a match in a chase. Out of those 60 runs, 42 of those were through sixes (7). Previously, against the same opponent in 2015, they had conceded 56 runs to lose the match, the highest then.
