IPL 2021, DC vs RR: PITCH REPORT

Here's what Mathew Hayden said during the pitch report ahead of DC vs RR toss:

It's pitch number 8, a day game in Abu Dhabi, and the players will have their work cut out for them. A fresh strip, although it's similar to the others in that it has a little wetness on it. It's firm, but there's no base beneath; the spinners will have the upper hand if you don't show intent with the bat. You won't be able to drive on the up, and the pacers will be difficult to keep up with on this surface.

IPL 2021: Rajasthan Royals' bowlers need to pull off yet another good show

In Rajasthan Royals' bowling department, pacers Kartik Tyagi and Bangladesh's Mustafizur Rahman did the job in the end.
 
With Punjab needing eight runs to win of the final two overs, Rahman gave away just four in penultimate over before rookie Tyagi bowled a sensational final six balls, picking up two wickets while conceding just one run to seal the side's fourth win of the season.
 
The former champions will look to keep the winning momentum going and bag two more points but that's easier said than done.
 
Royals will face a tough task against the Delhi team today with openers Shikhar Dhawan, the leading run scorer of the tournament this season, and Prithvi Shaw looking in good touch.

IPL 2021, DC vs RR: Heat going to be a big factor at Abu Dhabi, says Nortje

Anrich Nortje feels that the team will have to quickly assess the conditions in Abu Dhabi and see what we need to do. It's not going to be an easy game and the heat will be a major factor as well. Hopefully, we can just control our skills and focus on what we need to do. It's going to be a very good challenge for us and I am really looking forward to it.
