Indian Premier League 2016: Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Delhi Daredevils – When Rishabh Pant took the Fizz out of Mustafizur Rahman

New Delhi: In the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016, if there is one bowler, who has been very consistent with his line and length, it is Bangladeshi pacer Mustafizur Rahman.

The left-armer has been a revelation in his maiden season, but Delhi Daredevils batsman Rishabh Pant on Thursday made him look like an ordinary bowler.

While the other batsmen see through Rahman's quota of four overs without taking any risks, the Delhi left-hander smashed him all over the park, during his 26-ball 39.

Pant hit 26 runs off the 13 balls he faced by Rahman, which included two wonderful sixes and as many boundaries.

DD needed 16 off 18 balls, when Rahman was brought to bowl the 18th over of the innings.

After Sanju Samson took a single off the first ball, Pant scored 12 runs off the next five balls, something which came as a surprise for most of the players on the field.


Samson and Pant were involved in an unbeaten match-winning partnership of 72 runs for fourth wicket.

It was because of Pant that Rahman leaked 39 runs from 4 overs and went wicketless.
