The second day of the 13th season of IPL was full of thrills. The match was played between Delhi and Punjab in the match played at the Dubai International Stadium on Sunday, and then Delhi won the game in the first super over of the season. However, Delhi did not get this victory so easily. In the match, Delhi was on the verge of defeat on several occasions, but each time Stoinis stood between Delhi and defeat.
After being released by Royal Challengers Bangalore, Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis was included in his team this time by Delhi for Rs 4.8 crore. Stoinis also did not allow Delhi's decision to be proved wrong and in the very first match, he was successful in winning Delhi with tremendous performance with bat and ball.
The fifties in 20 balls
Stoinis came out to bat in the 15th over. At this time Delhi had lost five wickets and the team had not completed 100 runs. The team's 100 runs were completed in 17 overs and at one time it seemed as if Delhi could barely score 130 runs. But then Stoinis added 13 runs in Jordan's 18th over, 13 in Cottrell's 19th over, and then 25 runs in Jordan's last over. With this, he completed his half-century in 20 balls with sixes and also raised the team's score to 157.
Two wickets in two balls
After Ashwin was injured, Stoinis was given the responsibility of bowling and was given the crucial last over. In this, the Punjab team needed 13 runs in the last over and they had to defend it. However, Mayank Agarwal made 12 runs off his debut three balls and the match almost went out of Delhi's grip. But even after this, Stoinis did not give up and showed his power. He dodged Aggarwal on the fourth ball and then took Delhi's wicket with Agarwal and Jordan on the fifth and sixth balls to pull the match to super over.
