Jos Buttler and Devdutt Paddikal Wreck Carnage At The Wankhede

Earlier in the day Rishabh Pant won the toss and chose to field first. Delhi starred well as they didn’t let RR score freely in the first three overs but after the 3rd overall hell broke loose as Jos Buttler and Devdutt Paddikal came into their own. Paddikal has been struggling for runs in the season as apart from a 40 odd he made in the middle order he did not look in the best of touches in earlier games.

Mustafizur Rahman, Khaleel Ahmed, Kuldeep Yadav, Lalit Yadav no one was spared.

Just before Buttler scored his 3rd century of the season, Khaleel Ahmed bowled a sheering yorker to Devdutt Paddikal to account for his wicket.

The on-field decision was not out but DC reviewed it successfully to get their first breakthrough.

Earlier in the day, it was revealed that DC’s head coach Ricky Ponting would not be part of the game as one of his members had tested positive and he is in isolation.
