Delhi Capitals (DC) crashed to their third consecutive defeat in the ongoing 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020). By defeating DC in the 47th match of the T20 extravaganza on October 27, Tuesday at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) have kept their hopes of making it to the Top 4 alive. This has made the race to playoffs more intense and interesting as DC has now slipped to the third position due to a low net run-rate while SRH climbed up the points table to settle at sixth spot with 10 points.

Losing the toss, the Sunrisers were sent to bat first. The new opening pair of David Warner and Wriddhiman Saha completely destroyed the almost-perfect bowling line-up of Capitals. The duo collected 77 runs in the powerplay with Warner completing his fifty in 25 balls, thus, being the only batsman in IPL to score a half-century in the first six overs. Saha, who got a chance in the playing XI after a very long time, showed his class with the willow as he smashed 87 off 45 deliveries at a strike rate of 193.33.

While Warner played a quickfire knock of 66 off 34, Manish Pandey also made a notable contribution of 44 runs off 31 balls, in the end, to take the Orange Army towards a mammoth target of 219 runs. For DC, Anrich Nortje and Ravichandran Ashwin were the only two bowlers to take one wicket each while this was the first time that Delhi’s poster boy Kagiso Rabada went wicket-less in his past 26 IPL games.

Delhi’s Batting line-up collapses while chasing 219

With 220 target on the board, Delhi Capitals had a mountain to climb. The team flattered in the very first over for their innings as the in-form opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan registered a golden duck. This was followed by a series of wickets and the team lost its first four wickets in seven overs only.

The decision of promoting Marcus Stoinis up the order at the 3rd position and demoting captain Shreyas Iyer at Number 6 proved to be disastrous for the team as neither of the two batsmen could score even 10 runs. Though the wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant tried to build the innings in the middle-overs, he lost his wicket to Sandeep Sharma after not getting support from any other batsman in the team. The collapse of the batting line-up resulted in DC registering the biggest defeat in IPL 2020 by 88 runs.
