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