In Wednesday’s Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 match, Delhi Capitals secured a thrilling victory against Punjab Kings. However, their fielding performance left much to be desired. Despite posting a formidable total on the scoreboard, DC’s fielding errors allowed PBKS to regain momentum in the game.
Anrich Nortje missed a catch at deep mid-wicket, giving Liam Livingstone a lifeline, while Yash Dhull failed to complete a straightforward catch in the deep, resulting in Atharva Taide surviving. A run-out opportunity went astray as both batsmen found themselves stranded, but the fielder’s throw was wildly off-target.
The fielding effort during the PBKS innings left DC head coach Ricky Ponting visibly upset, with even Kuldeep Yadav shouting at the fielders as catches continued to be dropped.
