Mayank Agarwal’s unbeaten 99 in the absence of K.L.Rahul could not help Punjab Kings to escape from the defeat in the hands of Delhi Capitals in IPL 2021 in Ahmedabad today.
Except Mayank, no other batsman of Kings can impress and the top ranked T-20 batsman Dawid Malan failed in his first outing after scoring 26 in 26 balls. Rabada is the wrecker in chief claiming prize wickets of Chris Gayle, Jordan, and the opener Prabhsimran Singh.
Chasing a modest total of 166, Delhi Capitals flourished with opening partnership of 63 runs between Prithivi Shah (39) and Shikhar Dhawan (69*) with the later regaining the orange cap for highest number of runs in the tournament. Delhi easily reached their target despite impressive bowling spell by Harpreet Brar (1/19 in 3 overs) with 14 balls remaining.
