Watch: Ricky Ponting, Kuldeep Yadav's Reaction After Delhi Capitals Drop Multiple Catches Against Punjab Kings

In the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 on Wednesday, Delhi Capitals defeated Punjab Kings in an exciting victory, although their fielding performance was far from stellar. DC appeared disciplined in their bowling after putting up a huge score, but their errors on the pitch allowed PBKS to get back into the game.

Anrich Nortje dropped Liam Livingstone at deep midwicket, and Yash Dhull failed to dismiss Atharva Taide with an easy catch in the deep. Both hitters were left stranded, and there was even a possibility for a run-out, but the fielder’s throw was completely errant.

The fielding effort clearly infuriated DC head coach Ricky Ponting, and even Kuldeep Yadav found himself shouting at the fielders when catches continued to fall throughout the PBKS innings.

With a 15-run victory in the IPL, the troubled Delhi Capitals finally unleashed their full arsenal as they played spoilers to all but eliminate Punjab Kings from play-off contention.

In their penultimate game of the season, Delhi Capitals, who were already out of the postseason picture, rallied around to post an impressive 213/2 when PBKS decided to bowl.

Prithvi Shaw (54 of 38b) also hammered a fifty on his homecoming after nearly a month as DC recorded their first 200-plus total of the season, while Rilee Rossouw displayed some superb strokeplay in a 37-ball 82 not out.

In response, PBKS only managed 198/8 in the allotted 20 overs despite all of DC’s fielding mistakes. Englishman Liam Livingstone scored 94 runs in 48 balls, including up to nine sixes and five fours, however it was insufficient since the total was too high.
