Delhi Capitals beat Punjab Kings

By Piyush


Delhi Capitals beat Punjab Kings by nine wickets.

They began the game on a strong note and bowled out Punjab for an insufficient 115 in 20 overs.

In response, the opening duo of David Warner and Prithvi Shaw got Delhi to a superb start. The pair summed 81/0 in the first 6 overs, which is also the soaring by the franchise in the powerplays.

Shaw was removed by Rahul Chahar on 41 off 20 deliveries. Warner and Sarfaraz Khan then supported the side home with 57 balls to remain.

Before in the evening Shikhar Dhawan, Mayank Agarwal, and Liam Livingstone flunked to supply Punjab with a quality start and were eradicated inside the powerplay overs.

Jonny Bairstow also flunked to do much. Jitesh Sharma apace with Shahrukh added a small partnership prior the former was fetched LBW by Axar Patel.

Among the DC bowlers, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Khaleel Ahmed, and Lalit Yadav grabbed two wickets each.

The Delhi squad was hit by COVID as Tim Seifert and Marsh are positive along with 4 support staff members.
