IPL 2022 – Kuldeep Yadav attributes DC skipper Rishabh Pant’s great performance in the IPL 2022 to Rishabh Pant

On Wednesday (April 20), Delhi Capitals put on a clinical display, thrashing Punjab Kings by nine wickets at Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium. It was undoubtedly the most one-sided game of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 thus far, with PBKS never looking like they were in contention. After dismissing the Kings for 115, DC reached the target in just 10.3 overs, securing a nine-wicket victory.

Kuldeep Yadav was a key architect of DC’s victory, taking two wickets and conceding just 24 runs in his four overs. Notably, the Capitals have won three games this season and Kuldeep has been named Player of the Match in each of those games. It has been a stunning turnaround for the left-arm wristspinner, who has struggled for opportunities with the Kolkata Knight Riders in the last few of seasons.

Meanwhile, Rishabh Pant is still in his infancy as captain, but the wicketkeeper-batter has been quite impressive thus far. He utilised his bowlers superbly against PBKS, as DC maintained control throughout the encounter. Meanwhile, DC’s next assignment will be against the in-form Rajasthan Royals on Friday (April 22).
