PBKS vs DC: Live Score and Update
PBKS vs DC: DC win an spectacle eventually!
A game that ebbed and flowed! A game which refused to be a simple one! With 79 needed in 24 balls, Livingstone and Curran slashed the next two overs for 41 runs! The impossible seemed possible for a second but Nortje knocked over Sam Curran to extinguish all hopes leaving them 33 to get off the last over! The equation came down to 23 off 3 and just then Ishant Sharma gave a waist high no-ball that went for six and then Livingstone failed to score off-the free hit! Such Drama, but DC won by 15 runs in the end! Punjab Kings left too many to chase for the last overs but Liam Livingstone kept them in the hunt with his power-hitting abilities!
PBKS vs DC: DC on top!
Punjab need 86 off 30 balls. Jitesh Sharma comes out to bat as Taide has retired out here! He was trying hard but was striking at 130 which is below par! The two batters have a stiff task as the Req Rate is now above 17! PBKS have to hit everything from here which will be tough! If DC hold on to their catches, they should win the game! PBKS are 128/3 after 15 overs.
PBKS vs DC: Good bowling, Poor Fielding!
Delhi Capitals have bowled well and kept the batters relatively quiet! Axar Patel removed the centurion from the last game for 22 immediately after the powerplay. They should have had two more but they didn’t due to dropped catches. One of those catches was Livingstone who is now slowly unlocking his gears! PBKS are 75/2 after 10 overs and need 139 runs in 60 balls. The required rate is around 14, but PBKS have a explosive middle order and they play on pitch which aids batting! A thrilling final phase of the game coming up!!
PBKS vs DC: DC get Dhawan early!
Ishant Sharma dismissed the PBKS skipper for a golden duck with nice little test match line and length! The ball was swinging quite a bit early on and PBKS started slow by respecting the bowlers. After three overs, both batters have taken calculated risks. The game is evenly poised, PBKS are 47/1 after 6 overs. Need 167 runs in 84 balls!
PBKS vs DC: DC end with 213!
A strong finish by Phill Salt and Rilee Rossouw has propelled Delhi Capitals to 213/2 in 20 overs. Rossouw scored an impressive 37-ball 82 and look full toll of PBKS bowlers! But the score still seems far on a good batting track with dew expected to settle in!
The target for Punjab Kings is 214 runs from 120 balls. They should fancy chasing this! Dew is expected and the ball travels at this venue after it stops moving. They would look to survive the powerplay and then slowly unleash their shots! PBKS need to chase this down in 16.4 overs or fewer to surpass MI’s NRR.
PBKS vs DC: Rossouw lits up Dharamshala!
DC is now in a strong position; they have made a strong start, and Rossouw appears to be optimistic and is smashing the ball for fun. It’s a lovely deck to bat on, and there’s a good chance of dew forming later on. So 200+ will be required at this time. Shaw hasn’t quite looked his fluent self, but played a substantial knock of 54 off 38, tough DC would have wanted more from him! DC are 148/2 after 15 overs.
PBKS vs DC: DC eye a massive score!
This a brilliant batting wicket with lightning-quick outfield! The Capitals have ten wickets in hands with both openers set! DC might look to shift gears as the eye a big score while PBKS would look to control run! DC 93/0 after 10 overs.
PBKS vs DC: DC off to a flying start!
This is the only second instance where DC haven’t lost a wicket in the powerplay! The last instance was also against Punjab Kings in their last fixture at Delhi! The ball was doing all sorts of movement in the early overs but has settled now! And Warner and Shaw have started to play more freely now! DC are 61/0 after 6 overs.
