Indian Premier League: Daredevils crush Rajasthan Royals by 67 runs

2010-04-01 00:00

THE Delhi Daredevils crushed the Rajasthan Royals by 67 runs in yesterday’s only Indian Premier League game.

The Daredevils racked up 188 for six, with Dinesh Karthik scoring 69 off 38 balls. Gautum Gambhir played a captain’s knock to add 79 with Karthik, who blazed six fours and four sixes to lift the team past 150.

The Royals’ chase was flawed from the very start, as Farveez Maharoof took two wickets in the first over to leave the visitors on one for two. Yusuf Pathan hit two sixes and as many fours, but once he fell the game was over. Shane Warne got run out on the first ball.

Delhi Daredevils 188 for 6 (Karthik 69, Gambhir 43) beat Rajasthan Royals 121 (Mishra 3-25) by 67 runs.
