Match started with Delhi Capitals batting first.

I am a big-time fan of talent that this team has. Right from Dhawan, to Prithvi Shaw to Shreyas Iyer to Pant, and not to forget Stonis.

A batting team that is capable of creating a score – On a given day.

Delhi capitals were 100 for 6 by 17 overs.

And, had it not been about Stonis playing a quick 53 of 21 balls.

The team total could have been very bad.

But,

You just need 1 good batsman doing the trick for you and yesterday it was Stonis, leading and then coming handy was

the Shreyas Iyer with 39 and Pant with 31.

Totalling 157/8.

I was like, KINGS XI PUNJAB would be able to achieve it.

But…

All that they could manage was a Super over.

Mayank Aggrawal was the only notable performance with the bat, hitting 89 of 60 Balls.

Ashwin who had captioned Kings Xi Punjab in the last match came into a bowl in 6th Over.

And, oh buoy he was cream, taking 2 very important wickets of Karun Nair and Pooran. Unfortunately got a shoulder injury saving 1 run in the same over.

A lot happened in over. It looked like he was up for vengeance.

Stonis again stole the show in last over.

By taking 2 wickets in last over.

Super over was quite quick.

First came Kings Xi Punjab to bat, Rabada was in no mood to bowl 6 balls.

He took 2 quick wickets of KL Rahul and Rishab Pant and all Kings Xi could manage were 2 runs.

In came Delhi capitals to bat, and all that they had to score was 3 runs to win the game.

And it was achievable in 3 balls.

It was quite a good match, with fun-packed moments.
