Main image to the post Pant's Fifty Not Enough as DC Suffer Second-Biggest IPL Defeat

Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant equaled Shikhar Dhawan's record of most half-centuries for the franchise with his rapid 55-run knock against Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League. Despite the loss, Pant's innings was a bright spot for DC, marking his 18th half-century for the team. He now shares the second-highest tally of fifties for DC with Dhawan, who currently leads Punjab Kings.

Australia's David Warner holds the record for the most half-centuries for DC with 24. Shreyas Iyer, now leading Kolkata Knight Riders, is third with 16 fifties, alongside former DC opener Virender Sehwag.

Pant's 55, which included four boundaries and five maximums, proved insufficient to guide DC to victory. The team suffered their second-biggest defeat by runs in tournament history.

While Pant attempted to anchor the chase for DC, Kolkata Knight Riders had earlier dominated with a blistering batting display. Narine (85), Raghuvanshi (54), Russell (41), and Rinku Singh's aggressive hitting propelled KKR to the second-highest score in IPL history, 272/7.

KKR's formidable target of 273 proved insurmountable for DC. The pace duo of Mitchell Starc and Vaibhav Arora reduced DC to 33/4 in the powerplay, derailing their chase. The required run rate became increasingly challenging, leading to a 106-run defeat for DC.
