Delhi Capitals (DC) thrashed Punjab Kings (PBKS) by defeating them by nine wickets and over nine overs to spare. Punjab continued with their all guns blazing approach which proved to be horribly wrong against a team like Delhi with a quality bowling attack. All the three spinners, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel and Lalit Yadav had a feast in front of them and they took it with both arms. They made sure that Punjab Kings had no hope left to reach a good total and reduced them to 90/6 in the 14th over. 

Kuldeep has been a key this season to Delhi’s remarkable start in the Tata IPL 2022. He has scalped 13 wickets in six games for Delhi at an average of 14.31. He has played a key part in keeping the opposition batters at bay and reminded us of the Kuldeep we knew a few years back, delivering such brilliant spells for Team India.

In all the three games that Delhi has won this IPL season, Kuldeep has been awarded the ‘Player of the Match’ award in each of those games which speaks highly about his performance this season. When asked about the reason for his recent prowess in the 15th edition of IPL, Kuldeep Yadav said that he has been boosted with confidence by his captain and friend Rishabh Pant.

“I have been given a lot of confidence in this IPL and I am very clear mentally as to how the batter will react to me,” Kuldeep said after the match.

“I am really enjoying my bowling after a long time and the credit behind the wickets goes to Rishabh for the way he backs his spinners. This gives a lot of confidence to the bowlers because he does not panic much and probably that’s a huge plus point,” he added.

These kinds of things have helped the bowler a lot and the confidence from his skipper just might be the right thing Kuldeep needed at this stage of his career.

Delhi Capitals to play Rajasthan Royals in their next fixture

It is pretty evident how the Delhi Capitals have been faring under their young and fearless captain Rishabh Pant. It’s his second season as captain of Delhi Capitals but the way he has been utilizing his bowlers in crutch situations. it is pretty clear how he has matured as a captain which is a commendable thing.

Kuldeep, Rishabh and Co. will be facing high flying Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede Stadium on Friday, April 22. This is set to be a thriller with both teams striving to get the two valuable points to push them up in the standings
