Twitter reacts as Rishabh Pant's instructions help Axar Patel to dismiss Dinesh Karthik
Delhi Capitals and Kolkata night Riders have clashed with each other in the 25th match of the ongoing IPL. After winning the toss, Rishabh Pant opted to bowl first.
His plan worked well as their bowlers kept the opposition batsmen under pressure situation. Axar Patel removed Nitish Rana for 15 runs and Marcus Stoinis on the other side, got the wicket of Rahul Tripathi who was looked good with the bat.
The skipper of Kolkata Knight Riders, Eoin Morgan, once again departed for a duck. Shubman Gill stood strong on the other end and scored 43 off 38 balls before being dismissed by the right-arm quick Avesh Khan.
Then Andre Russell came to the party and straightaway started to dominate the bowlers all around the park. The Tamil Nadu-based batsman Dinesh Karthi has been dismissed by Axar Patel for 14 runs.
Rishabh Pant who is standing behind the stumps gave instructions to the bowlers and said "YE Pehle Hi Sweep Marne Baithe Hai, Door Se Marne De."

Prithvi Shaw's domination in the second innings:
Kolkata Knight Riders posted a total of 154 runs with the help of Shubman Gill's 43 and Andre Russell's unbeaten 45 off 27 deliveries. Chasing the target, Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw came to the crease and got a very good start to their innings.
Prithvi Shaw hit six fours of Shivam Mavi's spell and registered that he's going to do something tonight. They scored 67 runs in the powerplay overs as KKR's bowlers were struggling to get the breakthrough on the regular intervals.
Then the Australian pacer Pat Cummins came back to the attack and removed both the openers in his back to backovers. Prithvi Shaw and Shihar Dhawan departed after scoring 82 and 46 runs respectively. In the end, Delhi Capitals chased the target of 155 runs in the 17th over of the game.
