Rajasthan Royals became the second team to be knocked out from the IPL 2019 as they went down against the Delhi Capitals in their last league match. The Royals needed to win the game and hope SRH and KKR lose their final league matches. Riyan Parag was once against impressive with the bat for the Rajasthan team as he became the youngest player to score an IPL fifty. RR finished their innings on 115/9 which the home team chased down with 23 balls to spare as Rishabh Pant played an unbeaten inning of 53 from 38 balls.
Here are the lesser known stats from Delhi Capitals’ 3rd consecutive victory at home:
Pant goes past Sehwag:
Rishabh Pant now has hit 88 sixes for the Delhi Daredevils/Capitals in the IPL; the most by any player. Pant’s third six in this game put him ahead of Virender Sehwag (85) who held the record for hitting most sixes in the IPL for the Delhi franchise before Pant.
Close to a 4th hat-trick:
Amit Mishra missed out on his 4th hat-trick in the IPL when Trent Boult missed a tough chance to dismiss Krishnappa Gowtham. Had Mishra completed the hat-trick, he would have been the first to claim four hat-tricks in the Twenty20 format. The leg-spinner was the first to take three hat-tricks in T20s before Andrew Tye and Andre Russell joined the list. Mishra’s three hat-tricks came for three different teams – Delhi Daredevils/Capitals, Deccan Chargers and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Pant gets better off the Royals:
Rishabh Pant has scored a fifty in each of his previous three innings against the Rajasthan Royals to take his team to victory. He scored an unbeaten 38-ball 53 and finished the chase with a six in this game. Pant completed the chase with a six during the game played in Jaipur earlier this season scoring 78* off 36 balls. The keeper-batsman struck a 29-ball 69 in the last season’s home game. Pant has aggregated 220 runs across four IPL innings against RR at an average of 110 and He has a batting S/R of 188.03.
Mishra runs through RR again:
Amit Mishra has bagged ten wickets more than anyone else in the IPL against the Rajasthan Royals. He has 30 wickets to his name against RR in only 19 matches while Piyush Chawla is next to Mishra with 20 wickets. The 30 wickets that Mishra picked up against RR are also the joint-most for any player against an opponent. MI’s Lasith Malinga also picked up 30 wickets against the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL.
