A Freebie for Rishabh Pant

There was a saying, “You don’t play for the crowd, you play for the country”. In the history of IPL since 2008, Delhi Capitals incessantly conquered the two most powerful teams of IPL, i.e. Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. Delhi Capitals tops the board.

Today is Rishab Pant’s birthday, and after they won yesterday’s solid match. It was the best birthday present for him as he was a caption for the team also. And if the game was easy, then there was no fun in playing.

The excitement that satisfaction came when you chased the opponent team. Because in cricket, if they pursue the game, they automatically chase their dreams, which was one of the happiest moments for each player and the whole team. In the squeeze play, CSK pressurised Delhi Capitals.

But then they bowled some excellent overs and got back in the tournament. CSK took advantage of this and stole good runs.

To won the game, a squad needs a good start for DC Prithvi and Shikhar to do this.Delhi Capitals keep the right-left combination. A proud moment for Rishab, as well as the members of the team, to be in the top two.

When Delhi Capitals needs 39 runs in 36 balls with six wickets, including Shikhar Dhawan’s wicket. Dhoni asked Thakur to step forward.

CSK needs the wicket of Ashwin and Dhawan as they were crucial wickets. Before Hetmyer came into the cricket pitch, Ashwin came to continue the left-right combination with Dhawan.

And, in the next ball, Thakur won a caught behind appeal from Menon. Dhawan took the review and survived, but Thakur’s strategy worked, and seamers were still concentrating on taking the wickets.

Jadeja’s magnificient preregrination throughout the match

Jadeja started to bowl his first ball to Pant; that ball struck on the pad of the Pant. Everyone was assuming it was an out, but the umpire gave it as a not out.

Pant continues to bat. However, Jadeja struck back and firing the balls at a speed of 107ks from around the wicket.

Moeen took the wicket of Rishab Pant. And at that time, Delhi Capitals needs 65 from 11 overs with seven wickets in hand. Jadeja performs very well in the IPL 2020 and grants 139 runs in 75 balls to two doors, and he had fared better against left-handers this season.

Finish off the Game

Shimron Hetmyer ended the game with a great spirit. He said that he paid for the game he played, but it was not that if I am getting the money so, there is no need to give my best in the game.
The catch missed by CSK is a boon for him, and thankfully he was not out and got a chance to finish the game seriously as Hetmyer and DJ Bravo both played for west indies.

So, a little bit, he was aware of his strategy and played accordingly. I just looked to go straight down the ground against him, and it paid off twice.

Axar Patel Man of the Match

Hetmyer motivated me a lot and taught me the statistics of the game very well. It is very challenging to play in front of such outstanding seamers. But from this, you get more experience and learn a lot of things. Delhi Capitals was just five to ten runs short in the powerplay.
Hetmyer asked Axar to look for singles instead of getting four or sixes and think before going for any shot. And considering all these things, Dehi Capitals gets a victory, and such matches give you a lot of confidence in the knockouts.
