Rishabh Pant and Lalit Yadav had steadied the DC innings before the latter was dismissed by a runout. Then Lockie Ferguson dismissed Pant and Axar Patel in the same over. This happened after Lockie Fergusons double-wicket over put Gujarat Titans on top as Delhi Capitals huffed and puffed in the run chase. Hardik Pandya got a wicket in his first ball to remove Tim Seifert. Shubman Gill hit a sparkling 84 off just 46 balls to lead Gujarat Titans to 171 for 6 against Delhi Capitals
After 20 overs,Delhi Capitals 157/9 ( Kuldeep Yadav 14 , Mustafizur Rahman 3)Second, win on the trot for the Titans as they beat the Capitals by 14 runs. Lockie Ferguson shines with four wickets and hes surely a candidate for the Player of the Match.
2 in 2 for Shami. He is on a hat trick. Back of a length, angling in, and Khaleel backed away, looking to steer it away through point. He could only manage to tickle an outside edge through to Wade Khaleel Ahmed c Wade b Mohammed Shami 0 (1)

Lockie Ferguson to Rishabh Pant, OUT! CAUGHT! What an inspired bowling change from Hardik Pandya!
Vijay Shankar to Rishabh Pant, OUT! RUN OUT! That is the only way this stand looked like it would be broken! Lucky dismissal and Gujarat needed this big time! On the pads, Pant works it to square leg. Yadav is off for a run but is sent back as it goes straight to the fielder. Lalit slips as he turns, Abhinav Manohar throws it to the bowler who whips the bails off. It is taken upstairs. Replays show that Shankar did step on the stumps before he caught the ball but only one bail fell.
SIX! Fuller delivery wide of off stump. Lalit Yadav slog sweeps the ball down to deep mid-wicket for a maximum.
FOUR! Short delivery around off stump. Rishabh Pant makes room, opens the face of the bat, and runs the ball down to third-man for a boundary.
Strong comeback from Pant and Lalit. The duos partnership is worth 45 runs. To put things into context, the Capitals need 93 to win from 60 balls.
Double blow for Capitals as Lockie Ferguson removes Shaw and Mandeep. DC is in a spot of bother.
