IPL 2021, Live Cricket Score, Delhi Capitals (DC) vs Punjab Kings (PBKS): Follow over-by-over commentary on our blog

23:40 (IST)

Excellent run chase there from Delhi Capitals. Man of the Match Shikhar Dhawan's 49-ball 92 formed the bedrock of this clinical pursuit, and that late surge from Marcus Stoinis meant DC cruise home with 10 balls and six wickets to spare. Prithvi Shaw's 17-ball 32 helped set the tone, and DC were never really out of depth in this tall chase. 


For Punjab, skipper KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal stood out with twin half-centuries, but as it turned out, Punjab were clearly 15-20 runs short on a smallish ground and against a rampaging batting line-up, not to forget the dew. The win puts DC on the second position on the points table as Punjab languish at the seventh spot. 


The action, however, doesn't stop in IPL 2021 with CSK taking on RR at the Wankhede Stadium. Do join us for the coverage tomorrow. Until then, it is good night from here. Stay safe and take care!

23:38 (IST)

Shikhar Dhawan is Man of the Match

Dhawan: "I am playing my best in terms of strike rate. I made a conscious effort to improve my strike rate and take more risks. I am always open to changes, and I keep trying new things. I am not scared of getting out either. I have worked on my on-side play, and I look to use the pace of the ball a lot more. I have also worked on my slog shot. I am more relaxed now. I have been playing for so many years, so if I am not relaxed now, when will I be? But, I don't take anything for granted."

23:33 (IST)

Rishabh Pant: "I've already started enjoying the captaincy but we were under pressure at the start because the wicket was not doing much and they had a good start. Good job by our bowlers to keep them to 190. I try to keep the atmosphere light so that people enjoy their cricket and make the most of their opportunities." 

23:27 (IST)

KL Rahul: "Victory would've been sweet on my birthday. Slightly disappointing but hoping we can comeback strong. Dew did sway things, bowling second's always a challenge at Wankhede. We always try to prepare for such conditions but it does get difficult in the situations. I think it would be fair (changing ball in second innings) and I'm not just saying that because I'm on the losing side."

23:14 (IST)

DC win by 6 wickets

Stoinis ends it in two legal deliveries. Pulls this short one from Meredith to bring curtains on Punjab. What a chase!

After 19 overs,Delhi Capitals 198/4 ( Marcus Stoinis 27 , Lalit Yadav 12)

four

Too high from Meredith, and Stoinis hits that over point for four. It's a no- ball as well.

23:11 (IST)

After 18 overs,Delhi Capitals 188/4 ( Marcus Stoinis 23 , Lalit Yadav 7)

Eight runs from that Jhye Richardson over including the wicket of Pant, but it doesn't matter anymore. DC need eight from 12, this may end quickly.

23:11 (IST)

Most runs conceded by Shami in an IPL match:

53 v KKR, Kolkata, 2018
53 v RCB, Bangalore, 2019
53 v RR, Sharjah, 2020
53 v DC, Mumbai, 2021*

Pant's gone. He hits Richardson straight to Deepak Hooda at long-on, who takes it in multiple attempts! Lalit Yadav is the new batsman.

After 17 overs,Delhi Capitals 180/3 ( Rishabh Pant (C) (W) 15 , Marcus Stoinis 22)

Wow, that was an eventful one from Shami, with nothing going his way. Two free-hits dipatched by Stoinis for a four and six  in addition to another four make it a 20-run over. DC need less than 6 an over.

IPL 2021, Live Cricket Score, Delhi Capitals (DC) vs Punjab Kings (PBKS): Stoinis ends it in two legal deliveries. Pulls this short one from Meredith to bring curtains on Punjab. What a chase!

Preview: Rishabh Pant-led Delhi lost against Rajasthan Royals while Chennai Super Kings comfortably defeated Punjab Kings.

For both the teams, batting is the strong point, especially the top-order but so far in the tournament, Wankhede track showed that there will be help for the bowlers.

Punjab failed miserably in their match against CSK so they will be under pressure to bounce back. The team could only make 106 in their 20 overs, which Chennai chased down in 15.4 overs.

Meanwhile, it looked like Delhi will overcome the challenge against Rajasthan but David Miller and Chris Morris turned it around in the chase for their team.

South African pacer Anrich Nortje is now fit to play after clearing COVID-19 tests so he could feature in the playing XI of Delhi Capitals instead of Tom Curran.

"It's nice to be out of the room and see everyone at breakfast. Excited to get to training today," Nortje said in a video posted by the franchise.

"It will be nice to go back to the stadium and it's nice that the IPL is happening in India. It's exciting to get back on the field."
