Fearless Pant knocks Gujarat Lions out of the playoff race
Rishabh Pant hammered 43-ball 97 and helped Delhi Daredevils overhaul a mammoth target of 209 - the highest successful chase at Feroz Shah Kotla.
Delhi Daredevils rode on a fiery 97 from Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson’s 31-ball 61 to thrash Gujarat Lions by 7 wickets in an IPL 2017 match at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium.
Rishabh Pant stole the show with a breathtaking 97 off 43 balls and shared in a 143-run stand with Sanju Samson (61) to help Delhi Daredevils register a thumping seven-wicket win over Gujarat Lions in an IPL 2017 at the Ferozeshah Kotla on Thursday.
The partnership between Pant and Samson dazzled the capacity crowd at the Kotla and the batsmen displayed fearless and powerful hitting.
Chasing 209, Delhi Daredevils lost stand-in skipper Karun Nair in 12 but Pant joined Samson and turned the match on its head. The left-hander started the carnage when he thumped Basil Tampi over deep extra cover for a flat six, and proceeded to blast two sixes and a four off Pradeep Sangwan.
