Delhi Capitals Bulldoze Punjab Kings In a Must-Win Game

Delhi Capitals knocked down Punjab Kings by 17 runs in a must-win game at Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai on Monday. Captain Rishab Pant was overwhelmed with his team’s performance, as they finally broke the IPL season’s streak of losing one game and then winning the next.

 


After the Punjab Kings won the toss and chose to bowl first, openers from Delhi Capitals Warner and Sarfaraz were deciding who will get the strike, and David Warner saw Livingstone and said he will take the strike, overconfidence I say, resulting in a golden duck for him.

 


Mitchell Marsh, who came to bat after David Warner was dismissed, stood by the wicket and scored his second fifty of the season, scoring 63 runs off 48 balls with four fours and three monstrous sixes. Sarfaraz stood with him for a while before being knocked down for 32 runs. Sarfaraz hit five fours and one six in 16 balls in a match played between delhi capitals vs punjab kings.

 


Captain Rishab Pant had a poor performance and was dismissed for 7 runs after playing a reckless shot after hitting a six. His team, particularly the bowlers, rallied around him and put up a fantastic effort.

 

In this must-win game for his team, Shardul Thakur hit four wickets, while Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav each hit two, and Anrich Nortje hit one. The Delhi Capitals bowlers took control of the game by dismissing the Punjab Kings batters one after another.

 

Punjab’s bowlers did an excellent job in the first inning, limiting Delhi Capital’s hitters to 159 runs, but the batters disappointed them with their rash strokes. Punjab Kings were out of balls at 142 runs in the second inning, despite the fact that Arshdeep Singh and bboth hit three wickets and Rabada hit one.
