GT vs DC: Twitter Reacts As Delhi Suffers 1st Defeat, Lose To Gujarat By 14 Runs

Delhi Capitals (DC) succumbed to their first loss in the IPL 2022 season as Gujarat Titans (GT) managed to wrangle their opponents and take home the two points courtesy of a 14-run win.

Batting first, Gujarat put up a competitive total of 171 on the board. Much of it was down to the brilliant knock from Shubman Gill, who took his time before unleashing his orthodox array of strokes.

Skipper Hardik Pandya chipped in with a 27-ball 31 while David Miller scored 20 in 15 balls. For Delhi, Mustafizur Rahman was stunning with the ball, ending with figures of 3/23 while the other bowlers were taken to the cleaners.

In response, Delhi was struggling at 34/3 before Lalit Yadav and Rishabh Pant revived the innings. The former was run-out at an inopportune moment following which, DC began losing wickets at regular intervals.
