IPL is known for high voltage action & entertainment both on & off-field. And this applies to mid-match funny banters in which often cricketers engage in. With Shikhar Dhawan around you can expect a dose of action combined with entertainment! And so it happened today during the KKR vs DC clash at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.
Though DC won the match by chasing 155 runs in 16 overs, Dinesh Karthik & Shikhar Dhawan treated their fans with a light moment during DC’s Innings. After missing a stumping chance, Karthik appeared to angrily point out at Dhawan & then the opener immediately dropped his bat & fell to his knees. Dinesh Karthik made another angry gesture before breaking into a laugh.
Watch the hilarious banter here:
In the DC vs KKR clash, Axar Patel & Lalit Yadav scalped two wickets each as KKR were restricted to an average total of 154/6. For KKR Shubman Gill scored 43 runs to accelerate their innings. And then Andre Russell smashed an unbeaten 45 runs off 27 balls to take KKR to an average total of 154 runs.
Dhawan along with Prithvi Shaw got DC to a perfect start by stitching 132 runs opening stand for the first wicket. Shaw starred with the bat by hitting six consecutive fours in the first over of the chase. However, Dhawan was out by LBW for 47 runs off Cummins delivery but Prithvi Shaw continued his onslaught with the bat.
Cummins put a full stop on Shaw’s knock by dismissing him for 82 runs. Pat Cummins didn’t stop here as he went ahead & dismissed Rishabh Pant in the same over. However, it came too late for KKR as DC easily chased the target & handed a massive seven runs defeat to KKR. By registering a glorious win, Delhi Capitals grabs the second spot on the IPL 2021 Points table with 10 points into their account.
