Chris Morris proved his worth as the big-money signing helped Rajasthan Royals pull off a thrilling chase against Delhi Capitals in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 encounter at the Wankhede Stadium on Thursday. Morris hit 4 huge sixes as the Royals gunned down a 148-run target on a tricky pitch in Mumbai.

Morris had a difficult evening earlier this week when he was denied a single by captain Sanju Samson in their failed chase against Punjab Kings. However, the man, who was bought for a record-breaking Rs 16.25 crore, kept his cool and redeemed himself with a stunning onslaught against a quality death-bowling unit in Delhi Capitals.

The Royals needed 58 runs in the last 5 overs and Morris, with good company from Jaydev Unadkat, got them past the finish line. Morris hit 4 huge sixes, 2 against Kagiso Rabada, as the former champions opened their account in IPL 2021.

Earlier in the day, David Miller single-handedly rescued Rajasthan Royals as he hit a 43-ball 62 after the top-order failed in the absence of Ben Stokes. Miller kept the Royals' hopes alive, hitting 3 sixes and 7 boundaries. In fact, it was Miller who hit the first six of the match in the 36th over as batters from both teams struggled to get used to the sluggish pace of the surface.

It did begin well for the Royals as Kagiso Rabada and Chris Woakes jolted the top-order, removing the likes of Manan Vohra (9), Jos Buttler (2) and captain Sanju Samson (4) but it did end well, thanks to the Morris-Miller fireworks.
