Delhi Capitals (DC) keep their playoff hopes alive with a resounding victory over Rajasthan Royals (RR). The Rishabh Pant-led team got a crucial win and added two more points to their name to keep the tournament wide open. DC have an Aussie to thank for their win over RR. Mitchell Marsh put on an all-round show to bring the sixth victory for his team in IPL 2022.
After taking two wickets with the ball, Marsh played a gem of an innings (89 off 62 balls). He was ably supported by his countryman David Warner who also scored a brilliant half-century (52* off 41 balls). Although Marsh failed to get his maiden IPL century, it was his best knock in the world’s biggest T20 league.
Meanwhile, for Rajasthan, it was a day to forget as the 2008 champions failed to capitalize on potential chances that could have turned the match their way. RR dropped Marsh twice in the field which cost them the game eventually. Even with the bat, RR could not capitalize on the good start and finished at a below-par total.
With the game going DC’s way and RR committing too many mistakes in the field, Twitter users shared their thoughts. Have a look at the top reactions from the game here:
