That is it from me, Karthik Raj and my co-commentator, Shashwat Kumar. Do stay tuned to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the remainder of this IPL season too
Unadkat: I think I have a lot of experience now. This was kind of a homecoming for me, I would like to bowl with the freedom I got with the new ball. This timealso I didn't play the first game so I knew when the chances came, I'd have to take them. Worked out really well today. If you see the stats, I think I only bowled about 4 or 5 change of pace. It was the wickets I got that's why it seemed like I bowled more, but it was about hitting the hard lengths today. There was moisture and I made use of it today. [Marriage] changes you as a person as whole, won the Ranji after I was engaged. I feel calmer, more settled. I think it's working.
Jaydev Unadkat has been named as the 'Player of the match' for coming up with three wickets and 11 runs.
Time for the Presentation ceremony

Sanju Samson: To be honest, I thought it was going to be tough to come back after losing five wickets early but we did have David Miller and Chris Morris. It is about reading the conditions as it was sticky at the start. 

Left-armers are our strength and it is a new trend in the IPL. All the three seamers are also different and we can use them in many phases. We had a chat with Chetan Sakariya and were confident that he will take the responsibility. (On the refused single against PBKS) Obviously, I review and look back at the game. However, even if I am in that situation 100 times, I will not take that single.
Chris Morris: That happens every now and then in the game of cricket, I thought Delhi played really well. Dave (David Miller) played a great hand and it went our way. [On that refused single last match] I was gonna run back no matter what and sacrifice my wicket because Sanju was hitting it so sweetly. People underestimate how fast I run. Sanju was hitting it like a dream that night. I think the dew plays a part here. I think they hit the back of a length a lot better than we did and they got a lot of guys skying with the extra bounce. But we would have taken a chase of 140-odd. There are guys that get paid to bat and guys that get paid to slog, and I know which I am. That's why I play so much golf. I think the last game, that close game, we took a lot as a team. For us to get as close on the day, we took a lot out of that first game of ours. Nice to know we can win from anywhere after being down in the dumps.
Here is what he had to say to Ian Bishop post-match!

Rishabh Pant: The bowlers did a good job at the start, but we let them get over us in the end. We could have bowled a bit better. It's part and parcel of the game and dew played a big role in the end. We were 15-20 runs short on that pitch. But at least there is something to gain from this match, the bowlers did a great job at the start. Hopefully if something like this happens again, we can pull it off. In the second innings, there was much more dew, so the slower ball wasn't stopping. That is why we went after short of a length deliveries.
Rishabh Pant's captaincy might be put under the scanner as Ravichandran Ashwin bowled only three overs while another off-spinner in Lalit Yadav wasn't used at all
That is it!! Rajasthan Royals and Chris Morris have pulled off a heist. Free-bie full-toss from Tom Curran and Morris bludgeons it over deep backward square to result in some celebrations in the RR camp. Who have thought this was possible at the half-way mark in this innings.

RR got off to the worst possible start as the trio of Manan Vohra, Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson fell with just 17 runs on the board. Shivam Dube also didn't last long as Avesh Khan dismissed him in the eighth over. The score soon became 42-5 when Riyan Parag failed to pick up a slower delivery.

Even though, RR were struggling, David Miller rebuilt the innings with Rahul Tewatia for company. Eventually, both Miller and Tewatia also opened up and took 15 runs off Marcus Stoinis' over. However, Delhi Capitals skipper Rishabh Pant brought back his spearhead Kagiso Rabada and he quickly dismissed Tewatia. Miller also had to walk back as he skied a full delivery from Avesh Khan. 

Delhi were seemingly dominating the game once again but Jaydev Unadkat introduced himself with a stylish six. Unadkat also got a life as Pant failed to run him out. However, the game changed in the penultimate over as Morris took 15 runs off Rabada's bowling. With 12 runs required off the last six balls, the South African made easy work of the chase with a couple of sixes.
19.4 Tom Curran to Chris Morris, SIX! THAT WILL BE THAT! REDEMPTION FOR MORRIS! Knee height full toss on middle and leg stump and that is just poor from Curran! Morris sits deep in his crease and smears that one over square leg for a maximum to seal the deal! 
19.3 Tom Curran to Chris Morris, full delivery outside off stump. Morris gets onto the front foot and cracks that one straight to the fielder in the ring at extra cover. Dot ball! 
Half-tracker and Morris pulls it over deep square-leg for a maximum. Rajasthan are now suddenly favourites to clinch this. Four runs required off four balls
19.2 Tom Curran to Chris Morris, SIX! MY WORD! SLower delivery dug into the track on middle and leg stump. Morris goes deep into his crease and clatters that one over deep square leg for a maximum! That could be the game!
Good yorker but extremely poor fielding from Prithvi Shaw. He didn't attack the ball at all.
19.1 Tom Curran to Chris Morris, very full delivery on middle and off stump. Morris backs away and drills that one towards the sweeper at deep extra cover for a couple of runs
Chris Morris retains the strike!! We are getting a last-over finish again!! Rajasthan require 12 runs off six balls.

18.6 Kagiso Rabada to Chris Morris, length delivery outside off stump. Morris takes a half step forward and punches the ball into the off side towards the man at extra cover for a single
What is that shot from Chris Morris!! Stylishly flicked over deep square-leg. However, a pretty poor delivery from Kagiso Rabada there
18.5 Kagiso Rabada to Chris Morris, SIX! MY GOODNESS! Dug into the track at the batsman on leg stump. Morris gets inside the line of the ball and shovels that one way over square leg for a maximum!
18.4 Kagiso Rabada to Chris Morris, EDGED! Slower delivery on a length outside off stump. Morris throws the kitchen sink at it and slices it off the outer half of the bat towards third man , where the fielder saves a couple of runs
