In a nail-biting finish, Delhi Capitals won their first-ever match in the IPL knockouts after beating Sunrisers Hyderabad by two wickets and with one ball to spare. The victory was largely thanks to some fireworks from Rishabh Pant. Pant who hit five sixes during his crucial 49 off 21 balls paved the way for his team to get a game closer to their first-ever IPL final. As the team won the thrilling game, cricket buffs praised the young wicket-keeper and batsman.

The highlight of Pant’s knock was the 18th over by Basil Thampi in which he hit 20 runs. Delhi Capitals needed 34 from the last three overs and Pant hit two fours and two sixes off the first four balls. Pant’s blitzkrieg had Hyderabad reeling, but it was almost nullified when the wicketkeeper attempted to finish things with a bang and it almost cost them the game.

However, in the end, Delhi’s Keemo Paul held things together to take his team to victory. Fans were most impressed by Pant and again took a dig at BCCI and Vijay Shankar beacuse the wicketkeeper was left out of the World Cup squad.
