This Was Close To A Perfect Game: Rishabh Pant

Discussing the game among DC and RR, the Capitals were pursuing 161 runs and lost opener Srikar Bharat on duck, yet what followed next was something like a rainstorm. Marsh and Warner unleashed destruction in Navi Mumbai’s DY Patil Stadium to lead their side to victory with 11 balls left.

While Marsh smashed 89 off 62 balls, Warner upheld him with an unbeaten fifty that saw them completing the game easily.

“It was close to a perfect game as I believe there is always space for improvement. On these kinds of wickets where there is little turn, you can go either way. I am happy we bowled first.

I thought 140-160 was a good score and said so at the toss. And we got there. Destiny is always on your hands, you can look to give 100 percent. The fielding could be better, but this was close to a perfect game,” he added.
