Sharjah: Things got emotional after Delhi Capitals – after having a top-notch season – crashed out of the IPL on Wednesday without making the final. The game between KKR and DC went right down to the wire despite the Knights looking good to win it all the time. A few tight overs in the backend ensured that KKR did not cruise through. Eventually, a six from Rahul Tripathi sealed the deal for KKR.Also Read - Virat Kohli Yet to be Dismissed vs Pakistan in World T20s | Check Stats

“I don’t have words to express at the moment, can’t tell anything. We just kept believing, tried to stay in the game as long as possible. The bowlers nearly pulled it back, but it’s unfortunate that it didn’t go our way. They bowled very well in the middle-overs, we got stuck and couldn’t rotate strike. Delhi Capitals are known to be positive and hopefully we’ll come back better next season. We played really good cricket, yes, there will be ups and downs, but we’ll stay positive, be there for each other, care for each other, and hopefully, we’ll come back better next season,” an extremely emotional Pant said at the post-match presentation.
KKR will now play CSK in the final on Friday and that promises to be nothing short of a humdinger in Dubai. Both sides are well-matched and are worthy finalists for sure.
