Delhi Capitals (DC) won a tight contest against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). DC won the match by 4 wickets with 4 balls remaining in the match. Ishant Sharma‘s fiery spell early in the match proved to be decisive. Ishant Sharma had taken 2 key wickets of Nitish Rana & Sunil Narine and gave away only 19 runs in his 4-over spell.

Axar Patel showed immense mental application as he took DC to home and scored 19 runs in 22 balls. DC required only 24 runs to win from the last 5 overs but it looked as if they didn’t want to take risks and take on the spinners as they allowed the spinners to dictate the terms.

KKR earlier while batting looked off-color as the batters lacked intent. The likes of Nitish Rana & Venkatesh Iyer couldn’t create an impact, in the back end of the innings it was Andre Russell’s blistering knock of 38 runs in 31 balls that took DC’s score to 127.  DC’s spin duo Kuldeep Yadav & Axar Patel bowled immaculate lines & lengths as both of them had taken 2 wickets a piece It was a collective effort from DC’s bowling lineup

Ishant Sharma added that he just wanted to contribute to Delhi Capitals’ win in the tournament. The veteran pacer further said that he wants the David Warner-led side to win all the upcoming games and eventually lift the trophy.

“I was just waiting for my chance. I wanted to win a game for the team whenever I will get a chance. Depends on what kind of plans you have. Matter of time when you want to execute your plans. There is no lucky charm in the team. We would want to win every game from here on, qualify and hopefully win the tournament,” said Ishant Sharma.
