Mohit Sharma, the veteran Gujarat pacer did not have a good day vs Delhi Capitals as Rishabh Pant smoked him all over the park in the DC vs GT clash. Rishabh Pant led his team Delhi Capitals from the very front against Gujarat Titans at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. He scored an unbeaten 88 runs to guide DC to a big total of 224/4 in 20 overs after GT won the toss and opted to bowl first.

Rishabh Pant came out to bat in the sixth over after DC lost three wickets for just 44 runs. Sandeep Warrier dismissed Jake Fraser-McGurk (23), Prithvi Shaw (11), and Shai Hope (5) cheaply to put GT in the driver's seat. The DC captain and Axar Patel did not let GT capitalize on the early breakthroughs by sharing a 113-run stand for the fourth wicket.

The partnership came to an end on the final ball of the 17th over when Noor Ahmad dismissed Axar for 66 runs. Axar's knock came off 43 balls and was studded with five fours and four sixes. Rishabh Pant was batting on 48 off 32 balls at that stage before deciding to shift gears.

Rishabh Pant takes Mohit Sharma to the cleaners:

After scoring 48 runs on 32 balls, Rishabh Pant went on to score as many as 40 runs on the last 11 deliveries he faced. And the bowler who was at the receiving end of the DC captain's whirlwind batting was Mohit Sharma. In the 18th over, Rishabh Pant hit the pacer for a six to complete his fifty before blowing him away in the final over.
