New Delhi: Rajasthan Royals made a winning return to the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Wednesday with a little help from the rain Gods.
Rajasthan overcame a slow start and were on course to post a competitive total before heavy rain lashed with Royals reaching 153 for five in 17.5 overs.
Intermittent rain led to a two and a half hour stoppage before umpires gave their go ahead for a shortened game. Royals innings eventually ended at 153 for five and Delhi were set a revised target of 71 runs in six overs as per Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method.
DD could manage only 60 for four as Royals won by 10 runs (D/L method).
Sanju Samson, who received the man-of-the-match, thanked the ground staff for preparing the field of play after rain threatened to have the match be abandoned.
