The Delhi Capitals find themselves in a spot of bother after a massive 91-run loss to MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings in Match 55 of IPL 2022.
Rishabh Pant’s side have 5 wins from 11 matches and now need to win all their remaining 3 matches to stay in hunt for the playoffs. Their 91-run loss however has dented their NRR.
Pant was, particularly, trolled by DC fans for they felt he showed no maturity with the bat in hand and kept on playing bad shots to eventually get out.
Here’s how fans reacted:
