It’s finally over. We leave you with a teaser of our report. Until tomorrow.
“The ending was chaotic with the Delhi Capitals threatening to recall their players and sending an assistant coach onto the field to overturn an appeal, but the serenity of another hundred Jos Buttler won out over everything else in the final equation.
Buttler began to seem unable to put the bat on the ball. His first 11 runs took 14 balls, eight of them on the edges. By the time he finished, however, opposition captain Rishabh Pant didn’t look happy with his bowlers, the bowlers didn’t look happy with the outfielders and the outfielders had the look tired of hunting for leather. Buttler went from 11 of 14 to find himself with 116 balls in 65, hitting nine sixes, including one 107m long.
The Rajasthan Royals lost their sixth draw in seven matches, the worst common draw chance, but it was the last thing they lost as Buttler’s third century of the season set them up for the highest score of this IPL, 222, which they defended. finally comfortably.
There remained 36 required for the final, but Rovman Powell hit the front three for six. The third of them was a high no-ball. The batter and dugout immediately protested for a no-ball call, but it was not called to the field. Then the dugout stopped play, insisting on the intervention of the third referee, but the ICC playing conditions only allow the third referee to enter if it is a non-ball foul kick or if the ball has been returned. Obed McCoy came back after the break to kick in a deuce and pull Powell off the final ball.”
