A comprehensive all-round performance from Delhi Capitals

A comprehensive all-round performance from Delhi Capitals

Delhi Capitals (DC) put in a comprehensive performance on the field to beat the Gujarat Titans (GT) by six wickets at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad. The DC bowlers put in a collective effort to bowl GT out for only 89 and the batters then ensured that they stormed home to their third win of the Tata Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. Generally, Ahmedabad is known to produce run-fests. The last match between Punjab Kings and the hosts produced a high-scoring thriller. However, today, the bowlers made merry, and in such conditions, DC won the toss and put the hosts in to bat.

Over the last few days, the TATA IPL has witnessed high-scoring encounters, including the record for the highest score. Today was a different story. DC kept picking wickets at regular intervals and never let GT get going. It all started with Ishant Sharma dismissing Shubman Gill in the second over, with the GT captain hitting it straight to cover. Wriddhiman Saha had a difficult start on coming back to the side. He tried to play a break-out shot but inside-edged off Mukesh Kumar onto the stumps in the fourth over. What also helped DC’s bowlers was the impressive fielding effort and Rishabh Pant’s performance behind the stumps.

DC were never daunted during their pursuit of 90. Jale Fraser-McGurk smashed the second ball of the innings for six, straight down the ground. A couple of balls later, he lofted one over the bowler again for a four. In the next over, he carted Spencer Johnson over extra-cover for a six. Later in the over, Johnson had him dismissed caught at mid-wicket for 20. The powerplay was competitive as Sandeep Warrier bowled a good short-ball to Shaw as he fended at it and was caught at short third-man. Abhishek Porel and Shai Hope then attacked the bowlers, particulary during the fifth over. Warrier was hit for three sixes and a four before he bowled Porel.

Since the target wasn’t too daunting, DC wouldn’t have been perturbed by the number of wickets they lost. Rashid came on for the last over of the powerplay and Hope hit one to point trying to reverse sweep. DC had won the powerplay effectively, with the score at 67 for four. While GT tried their best, DC were always ahead. Pant then came in and finished the job with a few expansive shots. DC won with a mind-boggling 67 balls to spare. It was a team performance Pant would be proud of as captain.

Delhi Capitals are making the most of the chances with some brilliant fielding.
