Shikhar Dhawan once again proved his utility to the Delhi Capitals (DC) side and scored a classy 69* off 47 deliveries at the top of the order to allow the Rishabh Pant-led side to beat the Punjab Kings (PBKS) outfit with 7 wickets to spare. Apart from Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw also embellished the sky with his resplendent shots.

The diminutive 21-year-old batting prodigy scored 39 at a whopping strike rate of 177.27, and put on a scintillating opening partnership of 63 runs off just 6.1 overs with Dhawan at the top of the order. Steven Smith too chipped in with a useful 24 for the Delhi Capitals. Shimron Hetmyer helped himself to an unbeaten 16 to ensure that the Delhi side chased down the target without any hiccups.

There was not much success for the Punjab Kings (PBKS) side with the ball. Riley Meredith, Chris Jordan, and Harpreet Brar scalped a solitary wicket each for the Punjab outfit.

The Punjab side was dealt a blow ahead of their match against the Delhi Capitals, as their regular skipper KL Rahul was ruled out of the match due to appendicitis. But, stand-in-skipper Mayank Agarwal sparkled on his captaincy debut and single-handedly guided the Punjab Kings (PBKS) side to a decent total of 166/6.

And, Agarwal definitely stepped up in the absence of Rahul. The right-hander scored a stunning 99* off just 58 deliveries. None of the other Punjab willow wielders supported Agarwal. In fact, the next highest run-scorer for the Punjab side was Dawid Malan, who scored 26.

And with this resounding triumph, the Delhi Capitals have moved to the top place in the points table, while the Punjab Kings are occupying 6th place.

Jos Buttler’s blitzkrieg propels RR to a massive win

Jos Buttler’s marauding knock at the top of the order allowed the Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan Royals (RR) side to decimate the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) outfit by a margin of 55 runs. Buttler scored a fantabulous 124 at a strike rate of 193.75 to power the Rajasthan side to a total of 220/3.

In fact, such was the destruction caused by Buttler that he scored 92 out of his 124 runs through fours and sixes alone. Apart from Buttler, Sanju Samson also scored a classy 48 off just 33 deliveries as the Rajasthan side made merry with the willow. For the ‘Orange Army’, the likes of Sandeep Sharma, Rashid Khan, and Vijay Shankar scalped a solitary wicket each.

In reply, the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) side was always playing catch up with the opposition and was never really in the game. Manish Pandey and Jonny Bairstow put on a blazing partnership of 57 runs off 6.1 overs for the 1st wicket. While Pandey scored 31 off just 20 deliveries, Bairstow scored a 21-ball 30.

But then, none of the Sunrisers Hyderabad batsmen could cross the 40-run mark. And many of them got off to starts but could not make a lasting impact. And in the end, the ‘Orange Army’ could manage to muster a total of just 165/8 on the board.

And with this emphatic victory, the Rajasthan Royals have moved to 5th place in the points table, while the Sunrisers Hyderabad side is languishing at the last place.
