Bowling first, DC managed to nip out Jos Buttler early and RR was always on the back foot after that. They managed to put up 160 on the board courtesy of significant contributions from Ravichandran Ashwin and Devdutt Padikkal.

Very close to a perfect game. Always believe there’s room for improvement. When you know the wicket is going to turn, a little bit not much, there’s an opportunity to both bowl first or bat first.

In the toss, I said anything around 140-160 would be good for us, and we got 160. Destiny is always on your hands, you can look to give 100 percent. Fielding wise we can be better,” Pant said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

Pant also provided an update on the condition of the opener, Prithvi Shaw, who was hospitalized recently. The 24-year-old revealed that Shaw had been diagnosed with Typhoid.

He got typhoid or something like that (talking about Shaw), the doctor told me that,” Pant went on to mention.

DC keeps its playoff hopes alive with the win. They now have 12 points after 12 matches but they continue to rely on other results to go in their favor. As for RR, the minor hiccup will be an issue but they sit in 3rd place with 14 points in 12 matches.

Final scores:

RR – 160/6 in 20 overs
DC – 161/2 in 18.1 overs
