For Delhi, Rishabh Pant’s flawless 88 runs off 43 balls proved to be the game-winning performance. Otherwise, Rashid Khan (21*) had threatened to spoil Gujarat’s aspirations following David Miller’s 55. Gujarat needed to score 19 runs in the last over to win. Rashid struck two fours and a six in the final over that Mukesh Kumar bowled. Delhi won the match by a margin of four runs as Rashid was unable to give Gujarat the five runs they required on the final ball.

Shubman Gill (6) was dismissed by Nortje’s bowling on the second ball of the second over while behind 225 runs. Then Sai Sudarshan immediately hit a six. Within four overs, both helped Gujarat surpass 50 runs. Rashid’s fifth over began with Akshar giving Sai an easy catch on the opening ball. They were at 19 runs at that point. With 33 runs off 15 balls, Riddhiman Saha helped Gujarat reach 67 runs for one wicket during the powerplay. Saha was removed by Kuldeep in the tenth over.

He used five fours and a six to score 39 runs off of 25 balls. With Sai, he scored 82 runs in 49 balls together. In 29 balls, Sai reached his half-century mark. Akshar claimed the third wicket for Gujarat by dismissing Ajmatullah (1). Sai eventually fell victim to Rashid’s removal, but not before he had amassed 65 runs off 39 balls, including seven fours and two sixes.

Gujarat lost their fifth wicket when Rashid Salam got rid of Shahrukh (8) in the fifteenth over. Pant made a superb catch close to the wicket. Gujarat needed 78 runs in 30 balls after reaching 147 runs for five wickets in 15 overs, but Kuldeep’s catch of Tevatia (4) by Pant dealt them their sixth blow. David Miller struck three sixes and fours in the 17th over of the Notre Dame innings, good for 24 runs and a half-century in 21 balls, bringing the total to 49 runs in 18 balls. In the subsequent over, though, Miller was out to Mukesh’s delivery. With 23 balls, he scored 55 runs. Sai Kishore (13) smashed Rashid for two consecutive sixes in the 19th over, but the ball after that saw him bowled.

Delhi amassed 224 runs.
Prior to then, Pant and Akshar Patel’s collaboration was quite effective. Against Gujarat Titans, Delhi Capitals scored 224 runs for four wickets thanks to captain Rishabh Pant’s unbeaten 88 runs off 43 balls. Delhi was down three wickets for forty-four runs at one point, but they were saved by a century stand between Pant and Akshar Patel for the fourth wicket in sixty-eight balls. Pant smashed four sixes and a four in the last over, playing with aggression in the final five overs. Delhi’s final five overs yielded 97 runs. In his innings, Pant hit eight sixes and five fours, while Akshar got his highest IPL score of 66 runs.

Warrior had three powerplay wickets.

Shubman Gill, in his 100th IPL match, won the toss and asked Delhi to bat. In the first three overs, Prithvi Shaw and Australian Jack Fraser MacGregor struck two fours and three sixes to raise the total to 34. Before Sandeep Warrior sent Fraser and Shaw back to the pavilion in just one over, everything was going great for Delhi. Shaw scored 11 runs off seven balls with two fours, and Fraser scored 23 runs off 14 balls. Noor Ahmad made a fantastic catch with Shaw. Upon reviewing multiple replays, the third umpire excluded him. It was hard to tell if the ball had made contact with the earth, though. Delhi’s second blow in the powerplay came when Warrior removed Shai Hope (5) in the sixth over.

During the powerplay, Delhi amassed 44 runs for three wickets. Akshar-Pant assumed command.
Captain Rishabh Pant, in partnership with Akshar Patel, attempted to turn around Delhi’s innings. Delhi’s total reached 80 runs in 10 overs thanks to both. Akshar also struck Rashid with a stunning six at this period. Pant had two Valentine’s Day gifts as well. In the eleventh over, Pant struck his first six off Nair’s delivery. Pant smashed a boundary off Mohit Sharma to end his partnership with Akshar in 34 balls. In 11.4 overs, Delhi reached their 100-run target. Akshar struck his second six off Shahrukh’s delivery during this.
