Some Facts About DC Defeat
DC had for the first time reached the finals of IPL. The team won the toss and decided to bat. However, they did not start strong the way it was expected. The team had high expectations from players like Marcus Stoinis and Shikhar Dhawan. Sadly, Marcus Stoinis returned to pavilion after the very first ball. Shikhar Dhawan’s assumed form wasn’t visible in the game. He too got out pretty early. This made the future dark for Shreyas Iyer’s team. Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant did try their bit to rebuild the team’s scores. The tight bowling spree from MI prevented this from happening. Rishabh Pant made his first half century in IPL cricket but soon lost his wicket. The duo made a 96-run partnership that provided a strong basis for the DC to compete.
