Delhi Capitals secured a six-wicket victory over Gujarat Titans in a low-scoring encounter, with Rishabh Pant’s bowlers reclaiming control and restoring stability in the Indian Premier League on Wednesday.

Opting to field first, the Capitals bundled out Gujarat Titans for 89 runs in 17.3 overs, with the bowlers making a significant impact after enduring tough matches in the previous fixtures of the tournament.

Mukesh Kumar emerged as the top performer for DC, securing figures of 3/14, supported by Ishant Sharma (2/8) and Tristan Stubbs (2/11), who each grabbed two wickets.

Despite a valiant effort by Rashid Khan, who managed a 24-ball 31, Gujarat’s batting lineup struggled.

Chasing a target of 90, Delhi Capitals comfortably achieved the required runs in just 8.5 overs, marking their third win of the season and enhancing their run rate.

Pant’s leadership skills and exceptional wicketkeeping were noteworthy, with his quick stumping and remarkable catch adding to his team’s performance.

Pant’s proficiency behind the stumps bodes well for Indian cricket, especially with the T20 World Cup approaching.

Invited to bat first, Gujarat’s skipper Shubman Gill (8) provided an early spark before the Capitals struck back, limiting the home team to a modest total.
