Delhi Capitals start IPL 2023 campaign with impressive win
Delhi Capitals got off to a great start to Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 with a thumping win over Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in their first match on Tuesday.
Batting first, Delhi Capitals posted a challenging score of 175 for the loss of six wickets in the allotted 20 overs. Opener Shikhar Dhawan played a brilliant knock of 72 off 45 balls for the team, while skipper Shreyas Iyer and wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant contributed 35 and 26 runs respectively.
In reply, RCB could only manage 141 runs for the loss of eight wickets, thus losing by 34 runs. Delhi Capitals’ bowling attack was impressive, with fast bowler Avesh Khan taking three wickets for 23 runs in his four overs. Spinners Akshar Patel and Amit Mishra also took two wickets each.
The win is a big boost for Delhi Capitals, who have high hopes for this year’s IPL after finishing as runners-up last season. The team would like to maintain this momentum in their upcoming matches and make a strong effort for the title.
Delhi Capitals will play their next match against Kolkata Knight Riders on April 2 at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Delhi Capitals would like to maintain their winning streak when they take on Kolkata Knight Riders in their next match. Kolkata Knight Riders got off to a disappointing start to their IPL 2023 campaign, losing to Mumbai Indians by seven wickets in their opening match.
Delhi Capitals will take confidence from their performance against RCB but they will need to improve in a few areas if they are to do well this year. Their middle-order batting is still a bit of a concern, and they will need more contributions from the likes of Marcus Stoinis and Shimron Hetmyer.
On the positive side, the Delhi Capitals bowling attack looks strong with the likes of Avesh Khan, Kagiso Rabada and Axar Patel. The inclusion of Ishant Sharma in the squad has given them more options in the pace department.
Overall, Delhi Capitals have a strong squad and have the potential to be one of the top teams in IPL 2023. It will be important to maintain consistency and perform well in all aspects of the game. With a stunning win in their first match, they have made a statement of intent and will look to improve it further in the coming weeks.
