DC lose by 15 runs.
But the game ended in a controversy as Pant questioned an umpiring rule. The first 3 balls of last over were hit for 3 back to back sixes by Rovman Powell. The third ball however appeared to be above the waist but the umpires did not call it a no ball. Pant was angry with the call and wanted the players to return if the no ball was not checked. Eventually things got settled but Powell could not connect the remaining 3 balls and DC lost by 15 runs.
A good came of cricket ended with a touch of controversy.

22 April 2022, 23:13 PM
Going down to the wire!
Powell has found his mojo back. Lalit and he brings the equation down to 36 off last 12 balls.
Achievable, yes, but needs good hitting. Krishna to bowl the 19th.

DROPPED and then taken!
Yuzvendra Chahal drops a simple catch. And it is a big miss as he drops Rishabh Pant. He was nowhere near the ball. He made a mess of it in the end.
But two balls later, one more leading edge goes in air and this time Paddikal takes it.

Good start from DC in chase!
Warner and Shaw open innings for Delhi Capitals and this is a good start. They are not looking to attack on every ball. It is important to have controlled aggression. The target is high but with wickets in hand and controlled aggression, this can be achieved as there are still runs on this track.
DC 25/0 after 3 overs

RR post highest total of IPL 2022
Sanju Samson finished with unbeaten 46 and thanks to Buttler’s marvelous knock, Rajasthan has posted the highest total of IPL 2022 which is 222/2.

RR 160/1 after 16.2 overs
22 April 2022, 20:12 PM
Shardul Thakur has just been slammed for a 107m six by Buttler.
It was a baseball-like slog as he sends the ball to the top-most tier of the stands on the leg side. What a hit!
He has reached the fifty as well. What a form this beast of a batter is.
RR 87/0 after 10 overs
22 April 2022, 19:58 PM
