Mayank returns to form, Punjab post 195
Batting first, Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul were quickly off the blocks on a flat deck at Wankhede. Mayank was the aggressor as he took the attack against the bowlers with four sixes and seven fours in his 69-run knock. While KL Rahul failed to accelerate, it was Mayank who helped the skipper with time through his innings. However, while Punjab was all set to cross the 200-run mark, a few quiet overs in the middle, gradually pushed down the scoring rate. Eventually, Punjab Kings could only post a par score of 195 courtesy of some late hitting from Sharukh Khan and Deepak Hooda.
Dhawan sparkles with 92 as Delhi make light work of the chase
Chasing 196 for victory, Delhi looked in control all through the run-chase. The duo of Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw gave them a belligerent start at the top. While Shaw was dismissed for a well-made 32, Dhawan kept churning out the runs for the team's cause at a healthy strike rate. The southpaw registered his 43rd fifty and had his team in the driver's seat before being bowled for 92 runs. The Punjab bowlers were never in the contest as both the spinners and the pacers found it difficult to execute their plans with a wet ball against Delhi Capitals. Eventually, Delhi sealed the Yesterday DC vs PBKS IPL match result by a margin of 6 wickets.
