Delhi Capitals (DC) captain Rishabh Pant on Wednesday (May 11) completed 4000 runs in T20 cricket during Delhi Capitals’ eight-wicket win over Rajasthan Royals at Dr DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai.

Capitals bowlers managed to restrict a Royals side sans Shimron Hetmeyer to a below par 160 in the first innings.

It was the Australian duo of Mitchell Marsh (89) and David Warner (52*) that put 144 runs for the third wicket as the Capitals chased the moderate target in 18.1 overs.

Rishabh Pant completes milestone in T20 cricket

Marsh failed to hit his maiden IPL hundred as he fell to Yuzvendra Chahal in the 18th over. Pant had no time to show respect against the leg-spinner and charged down with two sixes to provide the finishing touches to his side.

Pant ended as the second-most run-scorer in that edition after SRH skipper Kane Williamson (735 runs in 17 games).
