Shikhar Dhawan Rishabh Pant Make Light Work Of Kolkata Knight Riders

Shikhar Dhawan scored his best-ever IPL score of 97* and was helped on with a cameo by Rishabh Pant (46) as Delhi Capitals (DC) scored 180/3 to chase down the target against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) with seven wickets to spare at the Eden Gardens yesterday. The win has now promoted Capitals at No. 4 in the points table.

Two days ahead of the Indian team selection for the World Cup, Dhawan, who survived a review on 11, decorated his knock with 11 boundaries and two sixes, as Delhi registered only their second IPL win at the Eden Gardens.

Rishabh Pant (46 off 31 balls) played a flawless second fiddle to Dhawan, curbing his rash shots and showed vast maturity in a 105-run partnership from 69 balls, which virtually killed the contest.

He was however denied his maiden T20 century, as Colin Ingram smashed one into the stands to finish the game in style.

Meanwhile, Prasad also revealed that left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed's name was also discussed during the selection meeting. Vijay Shankar who has been picked instead is a batsman who can bowl and of late has really grown into the role.

Asked to bat first, the hosts rattled up 178 for seven off their 20 overs with opener Shubman Gill top-scoring with 65 off 39 balls and Russell blasting 45 off 21 deliveries, batting at number five.

7 - With the wicket of Shreyas Iyer, Russell completed 50 wickets in the IPL. From then on, it was a Dhawan and Pant show as the former returned to form with some crisp cover drives while his junior partner showed composure before holing out to Kuldeep Yadav at long on off Nitish Rana. KKR were 72/2 at the halfway stage. While DC also dropped Sandeep Lammichane and brought Keemo Paul. However, the spinner has dismissed Russell once in the IPL and he will certainly looking to improve his record against the KKR batsman. Paul was given the last over in which he got the wicket of Brathwaite, giving away 10 runs.

Kolkata recovered from the early dent, adding 63 runs, shared between Gill and Robin Uthappa for the second wicket. Although Gill timed the ball nicely, the aerial shot went straight to short fine-leg where Axar Patel held on to the ball comfortably. It was soon after this stifle that Capitals carefully used Kagiso Rabada, and unleashed him later against Russell, who had his revenge this time around. I was getting the right thoughts and I had to take the game deep.
