Delhi Capitals won this match against Punjab Kings by 15 runs. It was a close encounter where Livingstone fought like a line warrior but couldn’t make his team win this match. Now, PBKS have very few chances to get qualified for playoffs, they have to rely on the other team’s performance. All it started with Delhi Capitals batting where David Warner and Prithvi Shaw gave a great start. Prithvi Shaw scored his first half-century in this IPL. DC lost their first wicket at 94 but the scoring rate was not reduced.
Rilee Rossouw came to bat and started playing his natural game. He got good support from Prithvi Shaw and Philip Salt on the other hand. They built a great partnership and took the team’s score to 213 runs. Now PBKS were looking for a fiery start but they didn’t get that start. Shikhar Dhawan got out on his first ball. Atharva Taide kept his eyes on the ball but his Strike rate was not up to expectations. On the other hand, Liam Livingstone was playing his natural game because he was familiar with the required rate.
He didn’t get any support from other batsmen but still, he was scoring continuously. In the inning of 94 runs, he smashed 5 fours and 9 sixes, which was really horrifying for DC bowlers. DC could win that match easily if they didn’t miss those easy catches and runout chances. However, they put a big score in front of PBKS batsmen, and chasing that never seemed an easy task. In the end, DC won that match by 15 runs.
