DC chased the 135 goal with 13 balls and climbed to the top of the standings, replacing the Chennai Super Kings with their seventh win of the season.
This is a big advantage: Rishabh Pant on Rabada and Nortje
The victory for DC was set up in the first innings by Anrich Nortje’s 2/12, Kagiso Rabada, by three wickets. The South African pair made breakthroughs during the match and did not allow the SRH batsmen to settle them and a total of less than par; Axar Patel also took a few wickets.
Rishabh Pant was full of praise for the two fast bowlers and regarded them as ‘great assets’.
The capitals travel next to Abu Dhabi where they will meet Rajasthan Royals on Saturday afternoon. Hyderabad will go to Sharjah on Saturday night to tackle the Punjab Kings.
