Rajasthan Royals’ bowling unit failed to know what to bowl, where to bowl at Rishabh Pant, whose blistering 78 not-out gave Delhi Capitals a six-wicket win and pole position in the IPL 2019 on Monday.
While striking six fours and four sixes during his 36-ball furious gallop, Pant showed why his World Cup exclusion became a subject of intense debate.

During his knock, Pant also smashed a one-handed falling pull shot.
The incident took place in the 15th over of Delhi’s innings when Jaydev Unadkat bowled a short of length delivery which Pant smacked towards the deep fine leg. While playing the shot, Pant fell down on his knees but the ball straight away went to the boundary for four.

Earlier, blending panache with power, Ajinkya Rahane roared back to form with a scintillating century and propelled the Royals to 191 for six.
