During the 55th match of the 11th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) between Delhi Daredevils (DD) and Mumbai Indians (MI) at Delhi, Delhi Daredevils’ Rishabh Pant hit hard against Hardik Pandya, scoring two sixes in his last over.

Earlier Shreyas Iyer, captain of Delhi Daredevils, had won the toss and chose to bat. Both the teams made a solitary change to their playing eleven. Delhi brought in Liam Plunkett in place of Avesh Khan. Whereas, Mumbai included Mustafizur Rahman for an injured Mitchell McClenaghan.
