Delhi Capitals (DC) defeated Rajasthan Royals (RR) by 20 runs in the 56th match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi, on Tuesday.

This was DC’s sixth win of the tournament and with as many losses, they managed to go to fifth position in the IPL points table. Chennai Super Kings, Sunrisers Hyderabad and DC all have the same points so far in the tournament, 12.

Samson led his with example once again as the Rajasthan skipper scored 86 runs on just 46 balls. He was slowly taking his side to the victory but the controversial dismissal in the 16th over proved costly as RR couldn’t chase down the 222-run target.

Meanwhile, in the first innings, Jake Fraser-McGurk breathed fire with his bat and took Rajasthan bowlers to the cleaners. The Aussie scored 50 runs on just 20 balls courtesy of seven fours and three sixes, giving his side a dream start in an important match.

Other than Fraser-McGurk, Abishek Porel also contributed valuable 65 runs that guided DC to the defendable total. Meanwhile, Tristan Stubbs scored a crucial 41 off 20 down the order.

It must be noted Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings are the joint-most successful teams in IPL history, with both sides clinching the title five times each.

Aside from these two, KKR has triumphed twice, while Gujarat Titans, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rajasthan Royals, and Deccan Chargers have each lifted the trophy once.

Despite boasting legendary figures in the shorter format such as Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers, Jacques Kallis, and others, Royal Challengers Bangalore have yet to claim the title despite reaching the final thrice in 2009, 2011, and 2016.
