Despite Rishabh Pant’s heroics, his innings was cut short by Varun Chakravarthy in the subsequent over. However, Pant’s explosive knock had already left a lasting impact on the game, providing Delhi Capitals with crucial momentum in their pursuit of a daunting target set by KKR.

  

While Pant’s batting brilliance stole the spotlight, his performance behind the stumps was marred by missed opportunities. Two crucial blunders, including failing to appeal for catches off Sunil Narine and Shreyas Iyer, cost Delhi Capitals dearly as KKR posted a mammoth total of 272/7 in their allotted 20 overs.
