SRH vs DC, IPL 2021, Match 33: It was a clinical performance by the Delhi Capitals (DC) as they swept away with a comfortable victory
The South African duo Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada helped DC give a dazzling start to the second leg of the IPL 2021 in the UAE. While Rabada picked up 3 for 37, Anrich Nortje scalped 2 wickets and so did Axar Patel to restrict SRH to a modest total of 134 runs.
Big duns including David Warner, Kane Williamson failed to put up a challenging total as the batting lineup started dwindling since the third ball of the game. Warner was out for a duck. Opener Wriddhiman Saha had just contributed 18 runs before he was sent back to the pavilion in the 5th over. Williamson could also manage 18 runs and retired in the 10th over.
Abdul Samad (28) and Rashid Khan (22) tried to keep their ship from sinking but even they could not prevent the easy falling of wickets.
It was a duck soup for the DC batsmen to successfully reach the target to seal an eight-wicket victory over SRH. Shikhar Dhawan became the Orange Cap holder by contributing 42 runs in the game, while Shreyas Iyer top-scored with 47 runs and captain Rishabh Pant remained unbeaten at 35 runs.
With the victory, DC surpassed the Chennai Super Kings to acquire the top of the IPL 2021 Points Table while SRH continues to languish at the bottom.
