IPL 2023: Fight breaks out between fans during Delhi Capitals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad match | WATCH

Cricket fandom can bring out the best in people, and apparently, also the worst as was witnessed during Saturday’s Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) when a violent fight broke out between two groups of fans at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in the national capital.

A video of the incident, which is going viral on social media, showed a brawl between two groups of fans, reportedly during the DC vs SRH match.

Visuals of the incidents shows some fans holding the DC flag as they kick, punch and throw each other to the ground in the viral video.

However, the reason behind the fight is not known yet.

Regarding the match itself, Delhi Capitals continued their abysmal run during this year’s edition of the T20 league as the Aiden Markram-led Sunrisers Hyderabad—who’ve had a mixed bag so far—trumped David Warner’s DC by 9 runs in a close encounter.

Despite an enthralling all-round performance from Aussie all-rounder Mitchell Marsh who picked up four wickets, including that of swashbuckling English batter Harry Brook, and then smashed six sixes on his way to an entertaining 39-ball 63 during the DC chase. However, the Capitals fell short by 9 runs despite Marsh’s heroics.

Earlier, batting first, SRH posted a mammoth 197/6 in their allotted 20 overs on the back of a 36-ball 67 from Abhishek Sharma and a blazing 53 run knock during the death overs from South African wicketkeeper-batter Heinrich Klaasen.

During the chase, DC lost skipper David Warner for a duck in the very first over of their innings, courtesy a beautiful inswinger from Bhuvneshwar Kumar but England keeper-batter Philip Salt, who smashed a 35-ball 59, and Mitchell Marsh kept DC in the chase with some brazen power hitting.

However, SRH managed to pull things back after the duo were dismissed and despite Axar Patel’s 14-ball 29, managed to restrict DC to 188/6 in 20 overs.

Rajasthan Royals pulled off Indian Premier League’s biggest run chase to defeat Kolkata Knight Riders by two wickets on Tuesday. KKR were asked to bat first and rode on Sunil Narine’s 56-ball 109 to take their team to a respectable total of 223/6 in 20 overs. In response, RR were in trouble at one stage of the match but Jos Buttler helped the team recover with an unbeaten 60-ball 107, as the visitors completed the run chase in the last delivery of the match.

The England captain began the last over hitting a six off the first ball, he then had to turn down runs off the next 4 balls, thus bringing the equation down to Rajasthan Royals needing 3 runs to win off the last 2 balls. Buttler then hobbled 2 runs off the 2nd last ball of the match and took a single off the last delivery and thus took RR to a record-equalling run chase.

Earlier the Kolkata Knight Riders were asked to bat first on a fresh pitch, Narine blasted a 49-ball 100 to lead KKR’s innings in this match at Eden Gardens. It was a one-man show from KKR as Narine (109 off 56) took his team till the 18th over, forging a 85 run partnership with Angkrish Raghuvanshi (30) and then adding 51 runs along with Andre Russell (13). KKR reached a score of 223/6 in 20 overs batting first.

KKR’s bowling attack could not go unnoticed as the likes of Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine both shone to help keep the home side in the fight, but the effort seemed to be in vain. It was merely a case of who wanted to win more on the match day. And Buttler showed that he wanted it the most, as he led Rajasthan Royals to a historic run-chase, the biggest successful run-chase in the history of the IPL.
