IPL 2019: It was Kagiso Rabada’s four wickets that ensured Delhi defended 156 runs to win their third consecutive match of the league. More importantly, the wicket of David Warner proved to be the turning point of the match as he looked set to take SRH over the line. Warner was dismissed for 51 by Rabada when he looked to press on the accelerator. Warner was out when the score was 106. Since his dismissal, SRH managed to only score 10 runs and lose five wickets as Delhi won the match by 38 runs. Prithvi Shaw jumping onto Rabada’s lap proves the importance of the wicket.

Here is how Twitter reacted to the celebration:
“We have our game plans and all that we try to do is to stick to it. We hope it goes our way and more often than not, it should go your way. It’s been the trend so far, you need to have variety in your pace. We try to talk about change-ups especially if wickets are assisting those type of changes. It worked for us today. In many ways, you do have a responsibility as an overseas player. I just feel that you have to do your best. We are working on all the departments and it’s working well for us,” said new purple cap holder Rabada.
