While Sam Curran huffed and puffed with his fast-paced deliveries, Warner and Shaw continued to hammer the Punjab Kings bowlers. But it was ultimately a slow-paced delivery that did the trick.
A slow-paced delivery, short of length forced Warner to play a hasty shot and go down the distance. There was a huge mishit as the DC skipper failed to get a proper connection with the bat. Shikhar Dhawan raced from the cover region to pull off a stunning catch by diving to the ground and thereby breaking a 94-run crucial partnership.
David Warner finished his innings with a well-knit 46 run knock from 31 balls with 5 fours and 2 big sixes.
Delhi Capitals have posted a mammoth 213/2 total. Rilee Rossouw smashed an unbeaten 37-ball 82 after Prithvi Shaw hammered a 38-ball 54. With David Warner, Shaw added 94 runs for the opening stand. Warner also was in form, scoring a 31-ball 46. Earlier, Punjab Kings captain Shikhar Dhawan won the toss and opted to bowl first against Delhi Capitals at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamshala. The big news for Delhi Capitals is the return of Prithvi Shaw but also the absence of Mitchell Marsh who has suffered an injury setback. For Punjab, Kagiso Rabada is back.
