It was raining sixes at the Feroz Shah Kotla as Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson made a mockery of Gujarat's score of 208. The innings by Rishab Pant was so brilliant that even Sachin Tendulkar took to Twitter praising the young lad for his brilliant innings of 97 off just 43 balls.
Brief Scores: Gujarat Lions 208/7 (Suresh Raina 77, Dinesh Karthik 65; Kagiso Rabada 2/28, Pat Cummins 2/30) lost to Delhi Daredevils 214/3 (Rishabh Pant 97, Sanju Samson 61; Basil Thampi 1/40, Ravindra Jadeja 1/28) by 7 wickets.
Here are the best tweets from the game:
Delhi being Delhi! :P
@shubh_chintak Is this the reason why DD drops their previous game Man of the match? :P So that they don't perform this bad. :D— Sampath Bandarupalli (@SampathStats) May 4, 2017
The question on everyone's mind!
Has Morris left or was he rested or dropped for performing #DDvGL— Gaurav Sethi (@BoredCricket) May 4, 2017
They will keep dropping sitters till #IPL finds a sponsor for "Halwa" catch of the match.— cricBC (@cricBC) May 4, 2017
Life is a circle!
Saved by the fielders, done by a fielder. The story of Raina today— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) May 4, 2017
Then this happened! What a catch by Corey!
This Rishabh Pant must see the ball before the bowler has conceived it. This is special. Take care of him.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) May 4, 2017
#DDvGL I think Rishabh pant is the best replacement for Dhoni... He should give his place to junior— chandan jain (@chandanjain09) May 4, 2017
Rishabh Pant reminds me of Jayasuriya— The Divine Beard (@Gerrardicted) May 4, 2017
They made it look so easy out there!
You know you are awesome when the opposition captain applauds your performance!
And a praise from the God himself!
