DC VS RR

DC and RR came face-to-face twice in this season. The Capitals have prevailed over RR both the times. In a previous match of RR and DC, where RR lost the game. The South African bowler, Anrich Nortje bowled excellently. 

He has been playing pretty well for DC. He has been a terror for the batsman bowling extremely fast. As of now, he holds the record of the three fastest delivery throughout the IPL. Anrich bowled the fastest delivery of around 156.2 KMPH. This delivery broke the record of the fastest delivery by Dale Steyn which was about 154.4 KMPH.

In the over of Anrich, Butler began to strike the ball using the pace. On the first delivery, he struck an excellent six. Then on the following deliveries, he struck a couple of fours. However, then Jos Buttler got clean bowled at a delivery which was 155KMPH. 

He has been an asset to DC. He took two precious wickets of Jos Buttler and Robin Uthappa. He only conceded 33 runs. And kept Rahul Tewatia quiet in his final over. 

Rahul Tewatia who assisted RR to defeat KXIP at the venue of Sharjah. Where he struck 5 massive sixes in an over of the West Indian bowler, Sheldon Cotrell. And took away the game from KXIP. And he did this magic once again in the game against SRH.

The game was almost in the pocket of SRH until Rahul Tewatia along with the youngster Riyan Parag snatched it away from them. However, in an over of Nortje, he couldn’t do the same. As he was suppressed by the pace of Nortje.

Hope that we get to see such brilliant bowling from him in the upcoming matches.
