  Delhi leapfrog Chennai to go top of IPL table Shimron Hetmyer played a crucial late knock to take Delhi Capitals to a three-wicket win over Chennai Super Kings in a top-of-the-table IPL clash.After Ambati Rayudu's unbeaten 55 from 43 balls had helped Chennai claw their way up to 136-5, Delhi appeared to be cruising to victory before a Shardul Thakur (2-13) inspired mini-collapse saw them slip to 99-6.

KKR skipper Eoin Morgan won the toss and opted to bowl first on a low and slow Sharjah wicket. Meanwhile, Rishabh Pant , being the funny boy that he is, played a prank on umpire Anil Chaudhary just after the toss. While returning back from the toss, he just nudged the umpire on the wrong side as he moved around to see who he was. The umpire completely looked baffled, but Pant calmed him down and revealed that it was him as the match official smiled. A random Twitter user tweeted the same video with the caption ” “24-year-old kiddo,” reflecting on the prank played by Pant .

When I first joined the Delhi Capitals camp, Rishabh was just starting to burst onto the scene.

A shellshocked Pant lamented the end of their campaign but promised a strong response in 2022.

“They bowled very well in the middle-overs, we got stuck and couldn’t rotate strike,” Pant said of their effort of 135 for 5 .

“Delhi Capitals are known to be positive and hopefully we’ll come back better next season.”

Pant was left devastated by the finish as the Delhi franchise will have to wait even longer to end their long wait for an IPL trophy.

“I don’t have words to express at the moment, can’t tell anything,” he said.

“We just kept believing, tried to stay in the game as long as possible. The bowlers nearly pulled it back, but it’s unfortunate that it didn’t go our way.”

Morgan counts KKR lucky

KKR skipper Eoin Morgan praised Tripathi’s cool head which proved the difference between the two sides while expressing the need to be more clincal after a fast start to the chase put them in charge.
