Shardul Thakur threatened to take the game away from the Delhi capitals in a 137 chase, but Shimron Hetmyer hit crucial boundaries towards the end to guide his team to a three-wicket victory. The Capitals overtook Chennai Super Kings to claim the top spot on the IPL 2021 points table.
Shikhar Dhawan (39) held one winger solidly, while Josh Hazlewood, Ravindra Jadeja and Moeen Ali restricted the flow of runs during DC innings. However, Shardul Thakur eliminated Ravichandran Ashwin and Dhawan in the 15th final, completing an impressive 2/13 spell, to bring CSK back into play.
However, Shimron Hetmyer hit a decisive 28 of 18 balls to help his team cross the line. However, DC had its moment of good fortune, as backup outfielder Krishnappa Gowtham chipped away at an easy long-term opportunity to give Hetmyer a break when he was 12.
One moment can change everything
