Opener Prithvi Shaw’s (56 off 38) valiant half-century followed by Rishabh Pant’s (49 off 21) heroics helped Delhi Capitals register a thrilling two-wicket win in the Eliminator of the tournament here on Wednesday.
Despite the duo’s valuable contribution, Delhi hobbled towards the death over. However, it was Keemo Paul’s stunning boundary off Khaleel Ahmed’s delivery on the second last delivery of their innings which helped Delhi pull a nail-biting victory.
Delhi Capitals advance to the second Qualifier of the league, where they will now face-off three-time champions Chennai Super Kings on Friday.
