PBKS VS DC MATCH-64 IPL23
DELHI CAPITALS WON BY 15 RUNS
LOCATION – Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamsala
The Capitals won the high-scoring thriller in the end! After being asked to bat first, Warner and company exploded into the scene. Shaw and Warner’s 94-run stand laid the groundwork for the middle order to follow. Rossouw, the third batter, was aggressive from the first ball and scored 82 runs in just 37 balls for an astounding strike rate of 222. After playing a maiden to Khaleel and losing the captain Shikhar Dhawan for a duck, a massive score of 214 was never going to be simple to follow down. Atharva Taide did succeed in scoring a half-century, but she was unable to match the steadily rising asking rate. When 79 needed from the final four, it was Livingstone who let go. When it was 38 from the last 2, Nortje bowled a game-winning over that cost just 5 runs. Even though Liam Livingstone, the lone warrior, made a few runs in the final over, PBKS was unable to win. DC finally won the game by a margin of 15 runs.
Player of the Game is Rilee Rossouw
Rilee Rossouw said “Many thanks to the helpers. I’m content that I could deliver for the group. It was a fantastic wicket to bat on, as David Warner said. Shaw and Davey made a strong team at the top. As I started to swing, I gained some momentum. Just goes to demonstrate that there is still time to score in this game. Liam Livingstone played an outstanding second inning“.
