Rishabh Pant’s blistering 78 off just 36 balls helped Delhi Capitals beat Rajasthan Royals by six wickets on Monday.

Speaking after the match Pant said, “I am feeling lovely. I won’t lie, the selection thought was running in my mind. I focussed on my process and it worked for me. The most important things for our team is that everyone needs their role.”
