Anrich Nortje is the Man of the Match

He says,"Missing out in the first half was disappointing. It was good to have a good start to the tournament for me. Looking at the first game here, it was good to see some grass and then yesterday's big score - didn't know what to expect. It was good to keep things simple in the end. I don't really focus on who I'm getting out, but I'm happy I contributed to the team's win."

Pant again as he beats mid-off with that crunching drive! The fielder dives to his right, but is beaten. Pant uses his bottom hand to this really full outside off, and caresses that for four. DC 132/2 after 17.2 overs.

Back to back boundaries

21:51 (IST)22 Sep 2021

Two boundaries in the second over

Capitals need 135

Sunrisers will not be satisfied with 134 but they will be happy with the contributions of Samad and Rashid at the death. It's now upto the Capitals to chase down the total in 20.

21:12 (IST)22 Sep 2021
2 run outs as innings ends at 134/9

Rashid is run-out at the keeper's end! Good work by the substitute fielder Smith at long-on. Very full ball outside off, and Rashid drags that to long-on with a flat bat. There was some confusion among the batters for once, which means Rashid is late on to the keeper's end, by which time Pant has already whipped off the stumps. Sandeep Sharma is also run out in the last ball of the innings

Charmed life of Cricket's Mr Charming

Has Kane Williamson ever been involved in as bizarre a knock as the one on Wednesday night? Particularly the phase of five balls in the end where he gave three chances. First reprieve came off R Ashwin’s carrom ball delivered from wide of the crease. Williamson lunged at it to have a poke but Rishabh Pant was more intent in trying to stump - though Williamson’s back foot was planted inside the crease - and clanged the regulation catch. Pant winced even as Ashwin shrieked in agony. Few balls later, Williamson drove Axar Patel straight to cover where Prithvi Shaw dropped a sitter. It was Shaw’s turn to wince. Next ball, he would be patting the back of Patel in relief as Williamson holed out. Even the end was bizarre. He stepped down the track and never quite reached the pitch of the ball but nevertheless went through with it. The bottom hand came off the bat as he went for a one-handed scoop to long-off to end his own misery. Quite un-Williamson like knock, if ever there was one.
