Delhi Capitals defeated Punjab Kings by 15 runs in a high-scoring thriller and spoiled Punjab's chance of qualifying for the playoffs in IPL 2023.

DC skipper David Warner scored 46 runs, and Phil Salt also played a beautiful cameo at the end of the innings.
Punjab Kings struggled to chase the total in the second innings as they lost their skipper Shikhar Dhawan for a duck initially with the score reading 0/1 (1), but Liam Livingstone's stunning knock of 98 runs from 48 balls gave life to this game as he single-handedly fought for the Punjab side.
