IPL 2021, Twitter reactions: Dhawan’s fifty propels DC to a seven-wicket victory over PBKS

Delhi Capitals (DC) thrashed Punjab Kings (PBKS) by seven wickets to climb to the top of the points table in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. On the other hand, Punjab Kings, led by Mayank Agarwal in KL Rahul’s absence, slipped down to the sixth place.

Batting first, Agarwal walked back unbeaten on 99 to guide PBKS to 166/6. For Delhi Kagiso Rabada picked up three wickets while Avesh Khan and Axar Patel picked one apiece.

Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan got DC off to a rollicking start, adding 63 runs in the Powerplay. Dhawan held the fort from one end, and with a little help from Steven Smith and Shimron Hetmyer, DC moved down the target with 14 balls to spare.

Hetmyer once again entertained everyone with a brisk cameo, scoring 16 off 4 balls with the help of two sixes and a four.

While wickets kept falling from the other end, Mayank held his nerves and took his team to a challenging total. He fell just a run shy of reaching the three-figure mark.

Harpreet Brar struck on the very first ball as he hit the ominous-looking Shaw through the gate.

The opening duo of Shaw and Dhawan has been firing on all cylinders. They have been a menacing prospect for the bowlers, especially in Powerplay.
