Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer scored their respective half-century to guide Delhi Capitals to a 13-run win over Rajasthan Royals.
After winning the match, Shikhar Dhawan said, "Till 10th over, both the teams were equal and they were quite close to bowl-to-bowl run and then, we spoke that we have to keep the positive energy going and keep believing that we can pull the game from there and we knew that they don't have experience down the order so we can get wickets up there.
The game changed quickly and everyone responded very nicely." He further said, "My mindset was to play positive only.
We knew that wickets were getting a little bit slower so it was important to score runs in first six overs.
Especially, when we lost two wickets early but still we kept the flow going.
It was good fun.
Glad that we ended up winning the game." Delhi Capitals is currently on the first position in this season.

Iyer said, "I am really happy for Shikhar Dhawan the way he is been going is clearly creating an amazing platform for us as batsmen. We should be know our roles and it's just one game. Other than that I think that other batsmen are in really good framework of mind. It is a going tournament and few matches can here and there go wrong. We need to focus on our strengths and really work on them. The way he accelerated after first few overs it's been amazing. His mindset has been great throughout."
Shikhar Dhawan praised Axar Patel's cameo in the last two overs wherein, Capitals needed 21 runs to win. Patel wacked three massive sixes in the last over turning the tables for CSK. Dhawan said, "He has always been an asset to the team. He is quite economical and always takes wickets and even with the bat, the way he came today and took away the match CSK and ofcourse having that all-rounder quality makes a huge impact on this side and glad that we got a very complete side as well."
