Asked to bat first, Delhi Capitals lost their top order early as 31 runs which had put pressure on the skipper Rishabh Pant. Rishabh played too many dot balls and failed to rotate strike.

Pant took charge in the 16th over of Ramandeep Singh but later got dismissed on a wide delivery.

Apart from Bumrah 3/25, Mayank Markande(1/26), Daniel Sams(1/30), and Ramandeep Singh(2/29) bowled exceptionally well.
