IPL 2021: Rishabh Pant gave this big statement regarding his B'DAY gift!
The 50th match of IPL was played between Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings on 4 October. The date of October 4 was very special for Delhi Capitals anyway, as this day also happens to be the birthday of captain Rishabh Pant. Delhi Capitals also gave their captain the gift of victory against CSK, but Pant does not consider it a birthday gift. In a thrilling match, Delhi Capitals chased down the target in 19.4 overs for the loss of seven wickets and Pant said that the victory was hard to come by.
After winning the match, Rishabh Pant said, 'This is not a birthday present, it was a very difficult match. We made this match difficult for ourselves. In the end, if we win, all is well. In the powerplay, he dominated the batting and we fell behind. After that we bowled some good overs, they got some extra runs in the end. Prithvi Shaw gave us a good start. The target was small and we were ahead in the match from the start.
Rishabh Pant further said, 'In the end, we managed to achieve the target. Prithvi Shaw will play like this and Shikhar Dhawan will help him to play freely like this. Shimron Hetmyer ended the match well for us. Sent R Ashwin up in the batting order to maintain the right-left hand combination. It was a good win because after that we are sure that we will reach the playoffs by being in the top-2.
