With a heart-wrenching loss in their season opener against Punjab Kings, Rajasthan Royals would be itching to get onto the win column. Leading from the front just like the previous game is skipper Sanju Samson, who took a blinder to dismiss Shikhar Dhawan on the bowling of Jaydev Unadkat. Samson was quick like a bird to fly onto the ball and gather it, dismiss the Indian southpaw for just 9 runs.

Unadkat, who replaced Shreyas Gopal, bowled a good length bowl around the middle which Dhawan wanted to paddle by shuffling across. But it took his edge and his gloves to go onto the right side of Sanju Samson where he dived and plucked the catch from thin air.

Here is the video:

Jaydev Unadkut picks three on his return

Jaydev Unadkat picked three crucial wickets on his return in the RR side. The pacer dismissed Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw and Ajinkya Rahane in his 3-over spell.

Talking about the pitch scenario, as per experts, the pitch has a nice grass coverage on it and will assist the bowlers. Let's see how the Delhi Capitals middle order faces this tough task against a new-look RR pace attack as both the openers departed towards the pavilion early.
