Dubai: Opener Shikhar Dhawan (57) and captain Shreyas Iyer (53) scored half-centuries as Delhi Capitals (DC) on Wednesday scored 161/7 against Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Dubai International Stadium.

Dhawan and Iyer put up 85 for the third wicket before the former fell to Shreyas Gopal (1/31). Marcus Stoinis (18) and Alex Carey (14) led the lower middle order’s effort to take DC beyond the 150-run mark.
Brief scores: DC 161/7 in 20 overs (Shikhar Dhawan 57, Shreyas Iyer 53; Jofra Archer 3/19)
