The Hindu: New Delhi: The agonising wait for Rajasthan Royals’ last-ball win over Mumbai Indians that booked it a place in the IPL semifinals turned out to be quite enjoyable for the Delhi Daredevils, who found a perfect getaway from the tension at teammate Tillakaratne Dilshan’s wedding here last night.
The 31-year-old Dilshan got married at a city hotel last night and the Daredevils came out in full force to wish the Sri Lankan all-rounder and his bride.
The marriage was conducted under Hindu rituals and turned out to be a refreshing experience for the team’s other foreign recruits.
“It was mesmeric. The music, the clothes that they wore, the atmosphere was completely a new experience for me. I had a good time,” said Australian pacer Brett Geeves.
And while they were enjoying the wedding, the Daredevils’ happiness was doubled by the arrival of the news that Rajasthan beat Mumbai in a last-ball humdinger.
Needing three runs of the last ball, Rajasthan benefited from a misfield and a spilt run-out chance to romp home and continue with its winning streak.
The Daredevils’ hearts would have definitely skipped a few beats during the close match but Dilshan’s wedding made sure that the team found a getaway from the tension. — PTI
