Maxwell rode his luck and finished with an undefeated 51 of 33, with Srikar Bharat (78 * of 52) playing a starring role in a three-wicket victory.
Previously, DC was limited to 164/5 despite a smooth start from Prithvi Shaw (48) and Shikhar Dhawan (43), after being put at bat.
Rishabh Pant lamented the missed opportunities on the field and the untimely loss of ground when her team lost just its fourth game of the season.
“We know how important it is to field in the T20s. If you field the way we did, you deserve to lose,” Pant said after the game. “We also lost too much ground while hitting. But we’ll have to field better next time I guess. It was tough for fast players with the spray, but the field has to support the bowling unit. We don’t feel too good because you want to win this one. type of matches “.
Despite the loss, DC remained in their first position in the 2021 IPL points table. They will play Chennai Super Kings in Qualifier 1 in Dubai on Sunday 10th October.
