The The capital city of Delhi (DC) defeat Punjab Kings (PBKS) by 17 runs on Monday IPL match at DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai.
First bowling after winning the pitch, three hits from Liam Livingstone and Arshdeep Singh helped PBKS limit DC to 159/7. However, Shardul Thakur won four hits, while spinners Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav took two each as DC held PBKS through 142/9.
Monday’s win lifted Delhi to fourth place in the table with 14 points and boosted their playoff kick hopes. Punjab, meanwhile, will have to win their final league match to pick up 14 points. However, they will also need a lot of other results to enter the top 4.
PBKS got off to a solid start in the chase as Jonny Bairstow once again put on superb form. He struck four four and one six in the first four passes before Anrich Nortje’s man did the trick for Delhi. Bairstow (28 off 15) has a header from a short ball to a deep square.
Thakur then attacks twice in the final stage of the stage. Bhanuka Rajapaksa (4) misfired the ball towards backstop. Then, 19-year-old Shikhar Dhawan made a return-length serve that cost one a little more. After six passes, PBKS struggled at 54/3.
Things took a turn for the worse for PBKS as captain Mayank Agarwal’s bad run with the bat continued. He was thrown to a duck by Axar, trying to cut a ball that slipped in.
PBKS lost half of the 61st half when Livingstone (3) dived to track Kuldeep but missed the ball completely and ended up tripping. Harpreet Brar (1) was soon cleared because a mistake from Kuldeep found his way through the portal.
The often-reliable David Warner dropped two catch but DC’s archers kept chipping away. Rishi Dhawan (4) was hand tackled by Axar and cleared. The bellicose Jitesh Sharma waged a lone battle for Punjab. He hit three four and two six to give the team hope of victory.
Sharma’s innings, however, ended in 44 of 34. He attempted to hit a ball with Thakur’s hand but was caught by Warner, who darted in long and excellently caught, rushing forward.
Kagiso Rabada hit a shot from long range six minutes but missed the next ball, dribbling slower from Thakur’s long shot. Rahul Chahar (25 * difference 24) helps Punjab reduce the defeat.
Livingstone, Arshdeep claims 3 because PBKS limits DC to 159/7
Livingstone (3/27) and Arshdeep (3/37) shone with the ball as PBKS limited DC to 159/7 after winning the pitch and bowling first. Mitchell Marsh (63 out of 48) once again shined for DC but couldn’t find much support on the other end.
Punjab made the interesting decision to open bowling with part-time spinner Livingstone. It proved to be a header as he brought Warner on for the first ball of the game. The player on the left was tempted to head out but only created a thick line to move back. Sarfaraz Khan should have taken the blow but Warner decided to face the ball first when he saw Livingstone flourish.
Then Marsh rushed in and defeated Rabada for six consecutive seconds in the second half of the round. Sarfaraz also had an excellent touchdown and left-hander Harpreet Brar with six and two four innings in the third round. He hit three more innings over the next two as Delhi began to weather Warner’s loss.
However, Sarfaraz was unable to convert his brilliant start. He fell with 32 of 16, hitting a big hit from a slower ball than Arshdeep.
Lalit Yadav was around briefly with Marsh as the duo brought Delhi to a decent 86/2 at half-time. Despite being 24 years old, he became Arshdeep’s second victim. Right-handers are attracted to two minds before a slower bouncer and, in the end, can only get the ball back.
DC gets into further trouble when captain Rishabh Pant (7) once again throws his cane away. After beating Livingstone by six one-handed, he was baffled when the next ball went into an aimless hit. Livingstone also sent back Rovman Powell (2) when the Delhi major hit a loft hit that resulted in a long loss.
Marsh brings in a patient fifty by slamming Brar to get the boundary. His great inning came to an end at the penultimate as his catch over midwicket from Rabada ended up in the puncher’s hands.
