On Thursday, Delhi Capitals were to face Lucknow Super Giants in the 15th match of the league. Prithvi Shaw provided a brilliant start to the side, with his innings of 61 runs off just 34 balls. After losing Shaw’s wicket, Delhi’s top-order collapsed. David Warner and Rovman Powell struggled to rotate strikes against the disciplined bowling of Ravi Bishnoi. At a moment, Delhi was struggling to put on a total of 130 onboard, but it was because of Rishabh Pant’s fiery at the end that they managed to put on a fighting target of 150 runs. Pant started his innings slow but managed to switch gears at the end and score much-needed 39 runs off 36 balls, including three fours and two sixes.
Pant has been a significant player for the Delhi Capitals for many years now. He holds a brilliant batting record in the death overs when he comes to bat in the first ten overs and bats till the end of the innings.
