The game between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) was everything that a 'playoff' game should be. If I wanted to point out things from the game, the first will be Rishabh Pant. The way he batted in the Basil Thampi over completely changed the outcome of the game. 20 runs off the first four balls of that over and the game was almost over for the Kane Williamson-led side.
The second point and the most important one was the call made by Williamson to give Thampi an over when your wicket-taking bowler Khaleel Ahmed has 2 overs left. It was the most baffling captaincy call you could have made at that point of time.
I never thought I would ever say that, but Williamson's fault handed the match to Delhi in a platter.
