A 5-overs a side cricket match is never ideal. Nevertheless, Rajasthan Royals would feel they were robbed of two vital points against RCB on Tuesday. Rain ruined a thrilling finish. And while the Royals are still in the competition, they simply have to win on Saturday to stand any chance of progressing.

Meanwhile, waiting for the Royals are a Delhi Capitals team who are already through to the next stage. Shreyas Iyer’s men have been impressive since the very start of IPL 12 and will be confident of adding two more points to their haul.
