In terms of the match, Skipper Rishabh Pant and the brilliance of the DC bowling and fielding were on display at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. GT had a major collapse in terms of batting as they lost their top order cheaply. They were able to secure 89 runs before being bowled out, marking their lowest-ever score in Indian Premier League history.

The Delhi Capitals were at their very best as pacer Mukesh Kumar secured a four-fer while conceding just 14 runs, while Ishant Sharma and Tristan Stubbs took out two scalps to leave the Titans in shambles.


It was a tough loss for the Titans, and it will be difficult for them to recuperate as they move forward in the tournament.
