SRH vs. DC: Delhi Capitals To The Top, Victorious By 8 Wickets

Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi Capitals match was in all praise for the Capitals as they looked in great form. SRH won the toss and chose to bat first. Sunrisers started quite okay as the top order couldn’t score well and stayed under 30 runs, but the team managed to pull off a run-chase of 134 runs with the loss of 9 wickets. 

The master bowling and attentive fielding by DC restricted SRH in 134 runs. Kagiso Rabada took three crucial wickets, with Axar and Anrich taking 2 wickets each. The batting line-up was fired up when Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer stepped in the field hitting some amazing shots to take the run-chase forward. Rishabh Pant too played well after Shikhar departed scoring 42 runs. Hyderabad tried to make a comeback but certainly couldn’t do much and overall, it was tough for SRH in the bowling sector and another defeat can be very harmful to the team. Capitals climb to the top of the points table, becoming the current reigning team of the season, with Shikhar Dhawan becoming the New Orange Cap Holder and the first batsman to cross the 400 run-mark in season 2021.


Anrich Nortje is Chosen As The Man of the Match

The IPL is a cricket league organised by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and backed by the International Cricket Council (ICC). The inaugural tournament was held in April–June 2008, in which BCCI finalised a list of eight teams who participated in the tournament. The teams represented eight different cities in India, including Delhi. The teams were put up for auction in Mumbai on 20 February 2008, and the Delhi team was bought by the property development company GMR Group for US$84 million.

In March 2018, GMR sold a 50% stake in the Delhi Daredevils to JSW Sports for ₹550 crore (US$77 million).

In December 2018, the team changed its name from the Delhi Daredevils to the Delhi Capitals.[7] Speaking to the rationale behind changing the team’s name, co-owner and chairman Parth Jindal said, “Delhi is the power centre of the country, it is the capital, therefore the name Delhi Capitals.”[8] Co-owner Kiran Kumar Grandhi said, “The new name symbolizes Delhi’s identity and just like the city, we are aiming to be the centre of all action going forward.”
