After winning the toss, Delhi Capitals skipper Rishabh Pant had reckoned that anything in the range of 140-160 would be a good target for them to chase down at the DY Patil Stadium on Wednesday.

His words turned out to be true as pace trio Mitchell Marsh, Chetan Sakariya and Anrich Nortje took two wickets each in restricting Rajasthan to 160/6.In reply, Marsh came out to lead the chase with a 62-ball 89 while Warner hanged around to play the anchor, remaining unbeaten on 52 off 41 balls as Delhi chased down the total with 11 balls remaining to win a crucial match by eight wickets, keeping them alive in the race for playoffs.

“It was close to a perfect game as I believe there is always space for improvement. On these kinds of wickets where there is little turn, you can go either way.I am happy we bowled first. I thought 140-160 was a good score and said so at the toss. And we got there,” said Pant after the match.
