With the Delhi Daredevils’ run-rate in the first innings against Kolkata Knight Riders not really touching great heights, Rishabh Pant provided some much needed acceleration. He hit Umesh Yadav for 26 runs in one over, much to the delight of the crowd at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium.
Pant, who is currently one of the most promising young Indian batsmen, hit Yadav for three sixes and two fours, leaving the experienced Indian international scratching his head for a solution. Pant’s blitzkrieg greatly contributed to the Daredevils reaching a total of 168, and would count as crucial runs when the home team step on to the field in the second innings to defend the score.
