Vijay Shankar departs as Marsh gets breakthrough


New Delhi: Mitchell Marsh gave Delhi Capitals a much-needed breakthrough as he removed Vijay Shankar (29). Vijay Shankar and Sai Sudharsan stabilized Gujarat Titans’ (GT) chase after losing their wicket in the power play.

Marsh removed Vijay Shankar. A breakthrough was much needed for Delhi Capitals. Shankar tried to play the ball in the fine leg region, missed the Marsh cutter and was trapped in front of the stumps. He wasn’t initially announced on the field, but Warner decided to send the decision up, which paid off for the Capitals.

Anrich Nortje scored twice for Delhi Capitals after Gujarat got off to a great start through Saha and Shubman Gill. Nortje first sent back Saha before removing the in-form Gill.

Anrich Nortje has just introduced himself in the attack and he immediately stuks! The fiery pace lit up the Delhi Capitals crowd as Saha miscued the ball and his stumps shook.

Anrich Nortje speaks against him, as this time he removed Shubman Gill with a performance of 149 km/h. The South African seamer bowls another Jaffer. The ball was kept low and Nortje’s pace did the rest. Gill’s room was cramped and she didn’t have enough time to adjust. This is a huge goal for the Capitals and they are right back in the game.
