Punjab Kings, Chennai Super Kings, and Royal Challengers Bangalore comfortably got the better of Rajasthan Royals. On the other hand, the Royals defeated Delhi Capitals in their second game.
With 3 wins and 1 defeat, they were at the bottom of the points table. After that, they crossed swords with Kolkata Knight Riders in the 18th match of the ongoing season of the IPL.
