IPL: Revised target against Rajasthan was tough, says Gambhir
Jaipur, April 12 - Delhi Daredevils skipper Gautam Gambhir feels that the revised target handed to his side during the rain-hit Indian Premier League (IPL) match against Rajasthan Royals was stiff to chase with just two overs of powerplay.
Chasing a revised target of 70 runs in six overs via the Duckworth-Lewis Method in a rain-truncated clash on Wednesday, Delhi had to suffer a 10-run defeat against hosts Rajasthan.
Earlier, Rajasthan rode Rahane's 45 to get to 153/5 when the skies opened up in the 17th over.
"We were very much in the game. It was a beautiful wicket to bat on, then 150-odd for 5 in 18 overs, we thought we could contain them to 170 and it was chaseable, especially with dew coming in later on," Gambhir said after the match.
