Delhi Capitals are locking horns with Punjab Kings in the 64th match of the sixteenth edition of the Indian Premier League. The game is currently being held at Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamsala.
Punjab Kings’ captain Shikhar Dhawan won the toss and invited Delhi Capitals to bat first. As it turned out, the bottom-placed franchise posted a humongous total on the board in their quota of 20 overs.
Among the batters, Rilee Russouw absolutely inflicted quite a lot of damage on the Punjab Kings’ bowling unit. The left-handed batsman kept swinging the bat with brute force and whatever he touched turned to gold.
Rilee Rossouw smacks a thunderous 82* off 37 balls against Punjab Kings
Delhi Capitals’ top-order batsman Rilee Rossouw made the headlines today after he smacked a sensational 82* off 37 balls against the Punjab Kings’ franchise in Dharamsala.
He succeeded against the PBKS’ bowling attack where he smacked sixes and fours with relative ease. The bowlers found no clue whatsoever and failed to keep the batsman in check.
By the team they thought of coming up with a tactic to keep him silent, the damage was already been done by the batsman. He constructed his innings with the help of 6 fours and 6 sixes during his stay at the crease.
On the other hand, Prithvi Shaw eventually managed to break his hoodoo and score his first half-century this season. He constructed his innings with the help of 7 fours and a six.

Poor bowling by PBKS and poor captaincy to give Brar the last over when there were overs of Arshdeep and Rabada left.
