The action returned in the Indian Premier League 2023 with a doubleheader on Saturday. For the day's first game, Rajasthan Royals hosted Delhi Capitals in their second-choice home ground, Guwahati. At the same time, the second game of the day is the El Clasico of IPL, where Mumbai Indians are hosting Chennai Super Kings in the Wankhede Stadium in a real heavyweights clash.


Regarding the day's first game, the visitors, Delhi Capitals, won the toss and decided to bowl first, inviting the home side to use the willow. Rajasthan started off well with the opening stand between Jos Butler (79 off 51) and Yashasvi Jaiswal (60 off 31), yielding 98 runs in 8.3 overs. A final flourish by Shimron Hetmyer (39 off 21) took Rajasthan's team total to 199/4 from their 20 overs.

Opener Prithvi Shaw was the first to depart, whereas top-order batter Manish Pandey followed him, both wickets going to pacer Trent Boult. David Warner (65 off 55) and Lalit Yadav (38 off 24) tried to steady up the innings, but Delhi could only reach ---. For the Royals, Yuzvendra Chahal remained the pick of the bowlers retruning with 3/27 in four overs.
