GT VS DC RCB MATCH-44 IPL23
DELHI CAPITALS WON BY 5 RUNS
LOCATION – Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow
Against the top team in the competition, DC effectively defends 130. DC’s disastrous start resulted from losing half of their team during the powerplay. The ball started talking thanks to Mohammad Shami, and the DC top order had no responses. With just 11 runs given up, the fast bowler took 4 wickets. As soon as Batter Nos. 6, 7, and 8 arrived at the crease, DC launched a counterattack. Aman Khan led the team in scoring for DC and recorded his first IPL fifty. GT also struggled to get off to a good start, as 4 of the top 5 batters only achieved single-digit scores. Hardik Pandya, the captain, managed to hold one end but was unable to score quickly. After hitting three sixes against Anrich Nortje, Rahul Tewatia, who came in at number seven, did help GT get back into the game. However, Ishant Sharma was able to maintain composure and protect 12 runs in the last over. In the end, GT lost by 5 runs!
Mohammad Shami is the Player of the Match
I simply follow my plans, said Mohammad Shami. Keep the length and line we discussed. This score wasn’t above average. I thought we ought to have won. Losing wickets frequently and partnerships forming too late were mistakes. Such things occur; we must move on.
