Gujarat Titans, the defending champions, defeated Delhi Capitals, the home side, by six wickets after successfully chasing down the 163 run target. This was GT’s second straight victory. Contrasting scenarios were displayed as we saw Ricky Ponting and Saurav Ganguly in the DC dugout with gloomy expressions in contrast to a beaming Ashish Nehra cracking a joke with Hardik Pandya.
GT is an all-star squad, as demonstrated by the outstanding collaboration between Shankar and Sudharsan. Even the loss of significant wickets, such as openers Wriddhiman Saha, Shubhman Gill, and captain Hardik Pandya, didn’t concern GT because of their strong batting lineup. Although GT lost wickets, the crucial combination between Shankar and Sudharasan kept them in the game. Later, it was exclusively old-school Miller activity. David Miller made some powerful shots and completed the GT team’s methodical pursuit to record the team’s second victory in the IPL season.
Anrich Nortje of DC, on the other hand, performed a fantastic job. His delivery at 148.8 kph had a zero error margin and sent Gill back to the dugout. Mitch Marsh and Khaleel Ahmed also performed admirably. In terms of their next game’s team plan, DC has a lot to consider.
Axar Patel’s ferocious 36 off 22 and some good shots by Sarfaraz Khan saved Delhi Capitals from failing to defeat Gujarat Titans with a respectable score earlier in the day. The defending winners gave off a strong sense of control right away. Md Shami’s incredible spin action allowed DC to lose two wickets during the power play. Later, DC was ensured never to appear again in the game by Joseph Alzarri and Rashid Khan. The batters appear to be very anxious. Because of this, DC benefited greatly from Axar Patel’s huge shots in the final overs.
