However, quickfire innings from Shai Hope (19 runs off 10 balls) and valuable contributions from captain Rishabh Pant (16*) and Sumit Kumar (9*) guided Delhi to victory in just 8.5 overs, finishing at 94/4. Sandeep Warrier was the most successful bowler for Gujarat, claiming two wickets, while Spencer Johnson and Rashid Khan managed to pick up one wicket each.
On the other hand, Delhi's bowlers put on an exceptional performance, with Mukesh Kumar leading the charge with three crucial wickets. Ishant Sharma and Tristan Stubbs supported him well, picking up two wickets each, while Axar Patel and Khalil Ahmed chipped in with one wicket apiece.
With this win, the Delhi Capitals climb up the IPL standings, showcasing a dominant all-round performance against the Gujarat Titans.
