After him, Prithvi Shaw took the responsibility, but like in the previous match, he could not score a fifty. He returned to the pavilion after scoring 32 runs in 22 balls. Delhi batted very slowly in the first half, but after that Rishabh Pant and debutant Jake Fraser McGurk batted in a stormy style and blew away the LSG bowlers.

Rishabh Pant and McGurk scored 61 runs in the next 24 balls and in this span of 4 overs, both of them together hit 5 skyscraper sixes and 4 fours. But with the dismissal of McGurk in the 15th over and Rishabh Pant in the very next over, the match seemed stuck. There was a partnership of 77 runs between Pant and McGurk. Delhi needed only 10 runs in 3 overs. Shay Hope and Tristan Stubbs did not hurry and ensured Delhi's victory by 6 wickets with 11 balls remaining. Kuldeep Yadav, while bowling for Delhi Capitals, broke the back of LSG's batting line-up. His bowling of Nicholas Pooran was the most memorable moment of the match. He took 3 wickets for just 20 runs in 4 overs.
