And after that Curran returned again in the last finished, he dealt with Rabada, who was thumped over by a singing yorker by Sam Curran. Truly, he was on a cap trap, the cameras panned to the burrow, Delhi were stunned, they expanded on, yet at nothing.

"Truly disappoiinting. We didn't play keen cricket. They defeated us in all offices. They were truly cool and quiet in that circumstance. I'm dumbfounded. Losing such recreations won't help us toward the end. It was extremely hard to try and see from outside, the batsmen not stepping up. It's great that it happened right off the bat in the season, so we can gain from this. Frankly, we didn't bowl that well. They came actually hard at us in the Powerplay. We safeguarded actually well after that. Rationally we have to prepare ourselves - we are getting great begins, need to complete better," Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer said after the match.
