Tristan Stubbs, who was stationed at the boundary line at long-on, jumped to prevent the ball to go for a maximum and managed to save crucial five runs for the hosts.

'T20 is a funny game': DC Skipper Rishabh Pant

The IPL 2024 clash between Delhi Capitals and Gujarat Titans treated the fans and spectators with run-feast as both teams combined scored 444 runs in 40 overs.

Speaking at the post-match presentation, DC skipper Rishabh Pant spoke about the decision to bring Rasikh Salam into the attack in the 19th over.

"Nortje was having a tough time. T20 is a funny game, after 14-15 overs the ball was coming on nicely. So we wanted to trust Rasikh, always trust someone who is bowling well in a game. I think it is about instincts as a captain, it will come off sometimes." Pant said.

Pant also said how he feels better while batting in the middle.

"I try to give it my 100% and it takes some time sometimes. I think the first six in the match gives me the confidence in a game. The more time I spend in the centre, the better I feel." DC skipper added.
