DRS, April 18: Delhi Capitals catapult to record win, young pacer gears up for Mahi mania

Welcome to our special segment DRS or the Daily Review System. In this, InsideSport will provide you with the top stories of IPL from a day before that you might have missed in the hustle and bustle of your busy life

It has been close to a month since IPL 2024 has commenced and not a single game has been a disappointment so far. In an edition that has seen records being reset, the DC vs GT clash was just an icing on the cake as Rishabh Pant and co registered IPL’s sixth fastest win. From Rishabh Pant to Shubman Gill, the chatter has once again been pivoted to who will make the cut for a spot in India’s squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup. On that note, Let’s take a look at some of the top headlines from Wednesday.

DC create history, on their own terms

Watching the match, one might think that the Gujarat Titans forgot that they were playing a T20 game. It felt like they were batting on a fifth-day pitch, which was keeping low, spinning big, and the pacers were hooping it around. They scored just 88 runs, and the Delhi Capitals entered the chase thinking it was a T10 match. All they needed were 8.5 overs to claim a comprehensive 6-wicket victory.

Rishabh Pant is well and truly back. After returning to the sport after 15 months, everyone was concerned about his fitness. Given how challenging wicketkeeping can be, people wondered whether Pant would ever be at his best behind the stumps. Three weeks into his comeback, Pant is looking better than ever.

Kul-Cha treat for India’s WC hunger?

Yuzvendra Chahal has been playing international cricket since 2016, and yet he’s played just one World Cup. Nine years into his career, the leg spinner could finally play a T20 World Cup match. Chahal’s partner in crime, Kuldeep Yadav, has already sealed his place in the eleven.

Mayank’s plan for Thala

LSG has posted a video of Mayank Yadav back in training. The Indian bowler was spotted bowling under head coach Justin Langer, and he appeared to be undisturbed by the niggle. Mayank had developed a hip ailment, and LSG made the correct decision to preserve the kid by limiting his workload.

A King’s heart and mind!

Following the intense match between KKR and RR, Bollywood icon Shah Rukh Khan displayed a touching gesture of sportsmanship. Despite the disappointment of defeat, Shah Rukh graciously congratulated Jos Buttler, embracing the cricketer who played a pivotal role in KKR’s defeat.

Stay strong, Hardik!

MI skipper Hardik Pandya is going through a rough time in IPL 2024. His equation with the fans and crowd has certainly taken a toll on his performances on the field. He is leaking runs in bowling, while his batting has been totally out of sync. He has struggled miserably when it comes to captaincy as well. But despite all that, he seems to be trying hard to give it best. That only goes on to show his mental toughness. His MI teammate Shreyas Gopal feels that all this is only going to make him stronger.
