The Delhi bowlers were not on point for their franchise, as they conceded 199 runs in 20 overs, leaving a difficult task for the batters. Similar to the Gujarat game, Delhi Capitals lost their wickets like dominos, as RR’s Trent Boult took two wickets in the first over, resulting in another flop show for Prithvi Shaw and others at the top of the order.
Meanwhile, David Warner was the sole hope for the Delhi Capitals as the skipper amassed 65(55), which included seven fours. Despite the defeat, Warner topped the batting charts for the leading run-scorer in the tournament after the game before Ruturaj Gaikwad surpassed him again in the recently concluded match against Mumbai Indians.
After being presented with the orange cap, Warner made a stunning remark, where he talked about giving up the cap for a couple of wins for the Delhi Capitals.
“I will give this cap in a heartbeat for a couple of wins. Chasing 200 is not easy. You need a good start for that, but unfortunately, we lost early wickets. Although, cannot take away the credit from how good a bowler Trent Boult is in the powerplay,” said David Warner.
