DC vs GT: Delhi Capitals survive Rashid Khan scare to seal 4-run win

DC vs GT: Delhi Capitals survive Rashid Khan scare to seal 4-run win

Delhi Capitals almost gifted the match to Gujarat Titans with poor fielding and dropped catches but they survived a Rashid Khan and David Miller scare to win.

DC vs GT: Rishabh Pant was anxious with every missed field and dropped chances. But he will leave the Arun Jaitley Stadium a happy man after Delhi Capitals survived a Rashid Khan scare to snatch a 4-run win. David Miller (55 off 23) and Sai Sudharsan (65 off 39) laid the foundation for a 225-run chase. But Delhi kept their nerves to seal a win and keep hopes for IPL 2024 Playoffs alive. Earlier, Rishabh Pant and Axar Patel have powered Delhi Capitals to 224/4. After Axar hammered 43-ball 66, Pant took off and smashed 43-ball 88. Tristan Stubbs applied the finishing touch with a 7-ball 26.

100th IPL match for Shubman


Shaw & Fraser-McGurk begin

DC 10/0 after 1

Blazing start

Delhi Capitals are off to a blazing start to fans’ delight. Fraser-McGurk and Prithvi Shaw are on the attack against pacers on the first three overs.

DC 34/0 after 3

DC 35/1 after 3.2

Prithvi Shaw falls

Delhi Capitals have been dealt another big blow and it’s Prithvi Shaw departs. Noor Ahmad takes an excellent catch and despite initial doubts, the replays show that Noor took that catch. And with that, DC are two down.

DC 36/2 after 3.5

Axar & Hope anchor

Delhi have sent Axar Patel up the order and he has Shai Hope with him. They need to rebuild after the twin strike by Sandeep Warrier.

DC 43/2 after 5

No Hope!

Rashid Khan takes an excellent running catch and Delhi Capitals are in trouble as usual. Shai Hope is the man who falls as he tries to go for the big one but it takes a leading edge instead. Sandeep Warrier bags his third wicket.

DC 44/3 after 5.3


Rishabh Pant is making a move. He takes on Noor Ahmad for a six and a four to speed things up after Axar did the heavy-lifting.

DC 93/3 after 11

Pant-Patel show

Rishabh Pant and Axar Patel are motoring along. They have brought up a half-century stand and with that, they have steadied the Delhi ship. Now, the target is to go as close as possible to 200-run mark.

DC 111/3 after 13

Axar hits 50

The promotion for Axar Patel has worked well for DC. Axar gets his half-century to not only rescue Delhi but also launch fresh bid for T20 World Cup spot.

DC 127/3 after 15

Axar falls!

Axar Patel has made the difference but he has to go. He falls for 66 off 43 after playing a great hand in rescuing Delhi from 44/3. Rishabh Pant is inching closer to his half-century.

DC 157/4 after 17

50 for Rishabh

Rishabh Pant gets to his half-century off 34 balls and with a six. Pant is hitting all the right notes before the T20 World Cup. India need him as much as Delhi.

DC 169/4 after 17.4

4, 6, 4, 6

Tristan Stubbs hammers Sai Kishore for 20 runs off the last four deliveries. Shubman Gill was holding back Sai Kishore because of two left-handers on the crease. But his gamble fails as Tristan Stubbs hammers him for 4, 6, 4 & 6.

DC 193/4 after 19

Pantastic knock!

Rishabh Pant had saved his best for today. Despite a slow start, he has not only stepped up but has hammered bowlers for fun. He takes on Mohit Sharma for 6, 4, 6, 6, 6 in the last over. Pant finishes with 43-ball 88 as Delhi post 224/4.

DC 224/4 after 20

Bad day at office!

Mohit Sharma ends up with an unwanted record of the most expensive spell in IPL history. He concedes 73 runs in his four overs.

Gill & Saha begin

Wriddhiman Shaa and Shubman Gill begin 225-run chase. They are crucial if Gujarat are to chase down the target.

Blow for GT

GT 13/1 after 1.3

Saha & Sudharsan anchor

Wriddhiman Saha and Sai Sudharsan have taken charge after the early blow. Saha is the aggressor as he is motoring along well.

GT 41/1 after 3

Poor Axar!

Sai Sudharsan gets an early lifeline as Axar Patel drops a dolly. It was an easy catch but he fumbled and despite three attempts, he fails. And that denies Rasikh Salam a wicket on the first delivery.

GT 60/1 after 5

Powerplay done!

Sai Sudharsan and Wriddhiman Saha rescue Gujarat after the early blow. Saha has been hitting well with 32 off 14 and Sudharsan too has been on song.

GT 67/1 after 6

Sudharsan closing in on 50

Sai Sudharsan is inching closer to his half-century. No one would be complaining about his strike rate today as he is striking at 180.00. Saha at the other end is also on song and is batting on 38 off 23.

GT 92/1 after 9

Axar’s redemption

Axar Patel has his redemption. He missed an easy chance earlier but now he has taken an excellent catch to dismiss Wriddhiman Shaa. And Kuldeep Yadav gets the wicket.

GT 98/2 after 10

Omarzai falls!

Axar Patel is on fire today. He scored that crucial fifty, took a fine catch and now he has a wicket. Omarzai falls for 1 as Jake Fraser-McGurk takes a brilliant catch. Gujarat lose two quick wickets.

GT 99/3 after 10.1

Sai departs!

Gujarat Titans lose another wicket at a crucial time and it’s Sai Sudharsan. The youngster departs for 65 off 39 as Rasikh Salam gets a well-deserved wicket.

GT 121/4 after 12.4

Wasted opportunity!

Gujarat Titans have lost Shahrukh Khan. Despite his domestic exploits, he wastes another opportunity. The Tamil Nadu player falls for 8 off 5 as Rasikh Dar claims his 2nd wicket.

GT 139/5 after 14.1

Kuldeep strikes

Gujarat Titans were banking on Rahul Tewatia and David Miller. But now, they will have to do without Ice Man. Kuldeep Yadav has struck in his last delivery to dismiss Tewatia. Gujarat need another 49 off 18.

GT 152/6 after 16

Killer Miller on fire

David Miller hammers Anrich Nortje for 24 runs including 4, 6, 6, 6 to keep Gujarat Titans in the hunt. Can GT pull off a heist? GT need 49 off 18.

GT 176/6 after 17

Miller gone!

David Miller departs at a crucial time. He was on fire but Mukesh Kumar has finally got his man after conceding 4 and a dropped chance for Rashid Khan. Miller falls for 55 off 23. GT need 44 off 15.

GT 181/7 after 17.3

19 needed off 6

Excellent battle between Sai Kishore and Rasikh Dar. Sai smashes Rasikh for 2 sixes but the young pacer cleans him up with a yorker. GT need 19 off 6.

GT 206/8 after 19

Delhi win

Delhi Capitals had almost gifted the match away with poor fielding and dropped catches. Rashid Khan was dropped on 0 by Abhishek Porel and he hammered 11-ball 21 to almost snatch the match away. But DC win by 4 runs after Rashid failed to clear the fence on the last delivery.
