Twitter Reactions: Rishabh Pant’s 27-ball 78 powers Delhi Capital to a 37-run win over Mumbai Indians in IPL Match 3




Rishabh Pant

The Delhi Capitals got off to a winning start in the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) with a 37-run victory over three-time champions Mumbai Indians, courtesy Rishabh Pant’s powerful cameo of 78* off 27 balls and some good bowling under pressure by Kagiso Rabada.

After Pant had helped Delhi ransack 99 runs in the last seven overs, Mumbai Indians found themselves needing 106 off seven, but with half their side back in the hut, it was always a tough task and despite Yuvraj Singh turning back time with a 35-ball 53, the Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi managed to hold their nerves to register a win.

“It’s been a great journey, trying to learn every day in my cricketing career. Always a great feeling when you score runs and the team wins. I always bat according to the situation all the time. Today when I came in, I had to up the ante and so took my chances. It came off tonight. (On his unorthodox methods) Especially in T20, you have to do something different. Sometimes when bowlers cramp you for room, you got to make your own room. (Whether he is ok with batting at 5) Well, (pauses), glad to bat anywhere the team wants me to,” Pant said after receiving the Man of the Match award.
