New Delhi: After the sixth match of the IPL, there were no changes in the holders of both the Orange (top run-getter) and Purple caps (top wicket-taker) as the rain-curtailed match at Jaipur didn't offer much opportunity to the players of RR and DD to replace the previous holders. 

On Wednesday, RR beat DD by ten runs in a rain-curtailed match at Jaipur. While Delhi were in the game when the heavens opened with RR 153 in the 18th over. But with nearly three hours lost in the play, DD got a difficult target to win the game. They required 71 in six overs. The Delhi team could only muster 60 in six overs and sunk to the bottom of the table.
