Gill and Kohli lead the league in runs scored with five.

Rishabh Pant, captain of the Delhi Capitals, reached a momentous milestone on Friday by becoming the third youngest player to accumulate 3000 runs in the Indian Premier League. In opposition to the Lucknow Super Giants, the left-handeder scored an impressive 41 runs off 24 deliveries, leading his squad to its second victory of the season. As a result of this triumph, the 2020 runner-up improved its position in the standings from ninth to ninth.

Pant reached the landmark with a four off the final delivery of the twelfth over bowled by Marcus Stoinis. His assortment of shots was particularly impressive, as evidenced by his scoops over third man and excellent leg. The DC captain scored over 30,000 runs as the third-youngest player to do so, following Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli.

The dafabet bowlers effectively dismantled the LSG batting order at 94/7 thanks to the return of Kuldeep Yadav, who took three wickets with his impressive delivery. On the other hand, the Super Giants managed to amass a respectable total of 167/7 due to the valiant effort of rookie Ayush Badoni, who scored 55 off 35 deliveries.

In this run pursuit, it was then up to the DC batters, who did not falter. After both of their openers were dismissed for 63 runs by the conclusion of the seventh over, Jake Fraser-McGurk, making his IPL debut, formed a partnership with Rishabh Pant and scored his inaugural fifty. Fraser-McGurk scored 55 runs off 35 deliveries, of which four fours and five sixes were hit. In the interim, Rishabh Pant, who was approaching his fifty off 41 balls, was bowled out by KL Rahul off a delivery from Ravi Bishnoi.

Nonetheless, their combined efforts ensured that DC would easily reach the objective, and they also became the first team this season to defeat Lucknow by successfully chasing a total of 160+ runs.
