Karthik Tyagi final over conceding just 1 run and taking 2 wickets in the final over of the match , to me has been the IPL match of 2021 so far,
Delhi Capitals went and perched themselves on top of the table in IPL 2021 with a win by 33 runs v Rajasthan Royals. Shreyas Iyer batted well & Nortje, to me bowled excellently with extreme pace & used the short ball to telling effect to take 2 for 18 of his quota of overs. Sanju Samson fought a losing battle with an unbeaten 70. His shot of Rabada over extracover for a six was an absolute gem & showed the greatness of his batting.
Sunrisers Hyderabad went through a nailbiter with Holder playing a a very good hand in a losing cause, that eliminated the chances in this IPL. Holder was superb with both bat and ball. He smoked 5 sixes. 7 to win of the last ball of the over, Holder needed to hit a six & take it to the superover, but could not, with debutant Ellis bowling a sharp yorker, that he was forced to dig for just a single. Punjab Kings won by 5 runs.
Warwickshire are the newly crowned English county cricket champions for the 5th time & congratulations to them.
