Shreyas Iyer 96 runs helps Delhi beat Gujarat by 2 wickets


Delhi Daredevils chased down a mammoth total of 195 runs to beat Gujarat Lions in a 2017 Indian Premier League match. The win, however, will not help Daredevils’ already ended campaign.
Shreyas Iyer 96 helped Delhi Daredevils recover after early blows to beat Gujarat Lions by two wickets in their IPL 2017 match at Kanpur’s Green Park Stadium. Earlier, Gujarat Lions posted a total score of 195/5 in 20 overs after Aaron Finch scored a gutsy 69-run knock. Delhi Daredevils had chosen to bowl in the dead-rubber match.Shreyas Iyer smashed 96 off 57 balls to lead Delhi Daredevils to victory over Gujarat Lions. Delhi did look like they were facing defeat when they lost frequent wickets. But Pat Cummins stood by a resilient Iyer and took Delhi out from the throes of defeat. Amit Mishra in the end hit a boundary to finish things off. It is a match that has little bearing on the points table as both teams are out of contention for the playoffs but it was a dramatic finish nonetheless.
