De Kock shines as Lucknow Super Giants beat Delhi Capitals by six wickets
It was a brilliant show by South Africa’s Quinton de Kock, who slammed 80 off just 52 balls as Lucknow Super Giants registered their third-successive win of the season, defeating Delhi Capitals by six wickets, Hindustan Times reported.
Chasing a 150-run target, LSG made a bright start — thanks largely to De Kock, whose 19-run over against Anrich Nortje turned the tide in LSG’s favour.
Even as KL Rahul (24) and Evin Lewis (3) were dismissed in quick succession, De Kock continued on his strong outing and steered the side in the run-chase.
When he fell, LSG required 28 runs off 25 deliveries and even as Mustafizur Rahman and Shardul Thakur conceded only 9 runs in the next two overs, Ayush Badoni kept his calm to steer the LSG to win, according to Hindustan Times.
Earlier, Prithvi Shaw slammed 61 but the rest of the batting lineup failed to step up as LSG restricted DC to 149/3.
