Axar Patel Lalit Yadav

All-rounders Axar Patel and Lalit Yadav pulled off a fantastic win for the Delhi Capitals against the Mumbai Indians on Sunday in the Indian Premier League 2022 season. The duo powered their team to a 4 wickets victory at the Brabourne Stadium.

The Delhi Capitals began the chase positively, scoring at about 9 runs per over in the first three overs. However, they lost Tim Seifert for 21 runs in the fourth over against Murugan Ashwin.

From there, the Capitals suffered a batting collapse and were soon reduced to five down for 72 runs. Lalit Yadav and Shardul Thakur tried to steady their ship, thereafter. However, Shardul too was dismissed for 22 runs.

All-rounder Axar Patel walked out to bat, following Shardul’s wicket. He looked very confident at the crease, taking on the Mumbai Indians bowlers. Axar slammed them all over the park, to bring Delhi back in the game.

He was also given a reprieve in the 17th over when Tim David dropped his cath at long-on. On the same delivery, the Mumbai Indians also missed a chance to run Axar out. The Lalit Yadav and Axar Patel duo put together 75 runs for the seventh-wicket stand to lead Delhi to victory.

Both Axar Patel and Lalit Yadav remained unbeaten in the match. Lalit Yadav slammed 48 runs off 38 balls, including four boundaries and two sixes. On the other hand, Axar Patel smashed three sixes and two boundaries during his 17-balls 38 runs knock.

Earlier in the match, Rishabh Pant won the toss and asked Mumbai Indians to bat first. The Rohit Sharma-led team put on 177 runs on the board, on the back of Ishan Kishan’s unbeaten 81. Kuldeep Yadav was the pick of the bowlers for Delhi with 3/18 in four overs.
