Captain Gautam Gambhir says the revised target during the rain-hit match against Rajasthan was a difficult one to chase. Chasing 70 runs in six overs via D/L method in a rain-truncated clash on Wednesday, Delhi suffered a 10-run defeat against the hosts.
Rajasthan rode Ajinkya Rahane's 45 to score 153-5 when the skies opened up in the 17th over. 'We were very much in the game. we thought we could contain them to 170 and it was chaseable, especially with dew coming in later on,' Gambhir said. 'But then in six overs, 71 was tough. Obviously, with these sort of games, things could go either way. Just two overs of Powerplay, it's very difficult,' he added.
