DC Vs LSG, IPL 2024: Arshad Khan's Late Fightback In Vain As Delhi Capitals Win By 19 Runs - As It Happened

DC Vs LSG, IPL 2024 Highlights: Delhi Capitals ended their season on a high with their seventh win of the tournament. With seven defeats to go with those and a negative net run rate, DC are almost out of the playoff race and so are Lucknow Super Giants who tasted defeat today. They would need to win by unimaginable margin in their last game against Mumbai Indians to have a shy at top-4 finish which looks an impossibility now. In the game, fifties from Abhishek Porel and Tristan Stubbs gave DC a dominating total of 208. In reply, LSG threatened at times with Nicholas Pooran and Arshad Khan hitting half-centuries but consistent loss of wickets meant they fell 19 runs short.

KL Rahul | Losing Captain

"...200 was a par total, we should have chased it down. This has been a problem right through the season - we keep losing a lot of wickets in the powerplay, we never get a solid start to get the likes of Stoinis and Pooran in, that is the big reason why we are in this position."

Rishabh Pant | Winning Captain

"We had a better chance of qualifying if I would have had a chance to play in the last game. Personally, it was fantastic to come back. Was heartening to see the support from entire India. Was a long time to wait after one-and-a-half years. I want to be on the field all the time. Don't want to miss any action."

POTM Is Ishant Sharma

Here's What POTM Ishant Sharma Had To Say

"I don't think much. I take it as it comes everyday. If my body is alright, I should thank Patrick [Farhart]. I had some injuries."

That Is It From Our Side

So, DC finish with 7 wins and 7 losses and their negative net run rate means they are almost out of the tournament and so are LSG who have now seven defeats and six wins and a net run rate even worse then Delhi's.

That will be it from our side. Thank you for following us... Good night!
