Delhi Capitals (DC) pacesetter Avesh Khan continued his fine form in IPL 2021 against the Mumbai Indians (MI). The right-armer first dismissed MI captain Rohit Sharma and then sent danger man Hardik Pandya back to the locker room with a fantastic yorker.
Many fans believed that Hardik Pandya was back in shape after his winning knockout against the Punjab Kings in the previous match. However, the Mumbai Indians all-rounder failed to get going in the 2021 Indian Premier League game against the Delhi Capitals.
Hardik came to bat when the team’s score was 80/4 after 12.5 overs. It was a good platform for him and his brother Krunal Pandya to lead MI to a big score. But they couldn’t perform well on the slow pitch at Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

Delhi Capitals allowed Hardik to score 17 runs with a strike rate of 100 before Avesh Khan scalped his wicket. It was the first delivery of the 19th left of the innings, and a phenomenal yorker from Khan got Hardik back in the pavilion before he could play big shots. Watch the video of the resignation here:
Avesh Khan completed his three-wicket haul by sacking Nathan Coulter-Nile in the same over
After taking the wickets of Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya, Avesh Khan completed his three wicket-haul in the 2021 IPL match against Mumbai Indians by sacking Nathan Coulter-Nile. Khan beat Coulter-Nile with his pace and dismantled his stumps.
Khan’s three-wicket haul allowed MI to score just 129 runs in their first innings. Left arm spinner Axar Patel brilliantly backed Khan with numbers of 3/21 in four overs, while Anrich Nortje landed an impressive spell of 1/19.
It will be interesting to see if DC can complete a double over MI in IPL 2021 by chasing the 130 run target.
Q. Can Delhi Capitals chase the 130 run target?
