The match number forty of the ongoing Indian Premier League saw Delhi Capitals take on Rajasthan Royals. The match was interesting and how! But in the end, Delhi Capitals won the match by 4 wickets thanks to good knocks by Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant who remained unbeaten on 78 off 36 balls. After the Rajasthan team management decided to take away the captaincy from Ajinkya Rahane and hand it over to Steve Smith, the Mumbai based batsman managed to hit the highest score of this season and went on to score an unbeaten 105 off 63 balls. But this couldn’t help RR much. Despite making a total of 191, DC defeated them and went on to top the points table charts for the first time this season.
MS Dhoni led Chennai Super Kings currently occupies the second position in the points table with 14 points followed by Mumbai Indians on the third position.

With back to back losses, Dinesh Karthik led Kolkata Knight Riders have slipped down in the IPL points table to the sixth position.
