IPL 2018: Rishabh Pant hammers seventh fifty, leads Delhi Daredevils fightback

IPL 2018: Rishabh Pant hammers seventh fifty, leads Delhi Daredevils fightback

The batting conditions were ideal and Kohli and de Villiers played shots of the highest calibre to enthral a full house. The third-wicket stand between the duo injected momentum into the visitor's innings and took them past the 100 run mark in the eleventh over, leaving them 79 to get off nine overs. His fifty included four fours and four sixes. Eventually, De Villiers found his touch and the Daredevils had no place to hide, with nearly every third ball being dispatched to the boundary via air or along the ground.

Delhi's bowling coach James Hopes and captain Shreyas Iyer insisted that there is a lot to play for. The 19-year-old spinner opened the bowling for Daredevils, finished with impressive figures of 4-0-25-1. Meanwhile, Orange Cap holder Pant will look to continue his supreme run of form and have a go at the RCB bowlers. Kohli, however, was picked out by Mishra in the next over for a rollicking 40-ball 70 but the strike from the legspinner, came a bit late in the night. Abhishek Sharma, the 17-year-old teenager, took his time to settle and then just blazed away against the likes of Tim Southee who was simply superb in his earlier matches. The South African remained unbeaten on 72 while Colin de grandhomme was undefeated on 3.

The RCB skipper started with spin and it got him instant breakthrough with Yuzvendra Chahal castling the talented Prithvi Shaw with a wrong one. While Shaw was defeated by a flipper, Roy played all around a googly. The young leggie created the history by becoming the first player from Nepal to feature in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Ask the opposition team to get the runs and tell them we are coming after it. Another six from Sharma and a four by Vijay Shankar followed in the over after that, delivered by Mohammed Siraj. He was taken apart for 17 runs in his first over which set off the Indian captain who was in the mood to play a special knock today.

In a desperate attempt to break the threatening stand, Kohli summoned Chahal to bowl the 12th over. The hosts have officially been eliminated from the race for the sixth successive season. The third-wicket stand of 93 was finally broken by Moeen Ali, who had Pant caught at long-on off his last ball of the night. The opening duo of Moeen Ali and Parthiv Patel struggled to pick him and the decent over piled on the pressure soon.

Iyer amassed a patient 32 off 35 balls before he too departed in an attempt to pump up the run rate.

Vettel conceded the battle for pole position will be fierce, saying: "We could end up in P1 or P6 but I think we can improve". Following a second virtual safety vehicle , the Ferraris moved into third and fourth before Max Verstappen bisected the two.

Pant plundered 61 runs off 34 balls to help Delhi overcome some early hiccups.

Abhishek slammed four sixes and three fours during his brief entertaining innings towards the end.

Rahul chopped Narine back onto his stumps while going for a sweep and, when Axar Patel couldn't clear left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav and was caught at long off, Punjab hopes all but ended at 119-5 in the 12th over.

Alas, their entertaining efforts weren't good enough.
