IPL 2017: Aaron Finch makes timely half-century in Gujarat vs Delhi


- Sponserd Ads -

DELHI Daredevils pulled off a successful run chase against Gujarat Lions to win by two wickets with two balls left in the Indian Premier League.

Lions reached a challenging 5-195 in its 20 overs after Daredevils won the toss and chose to field at Green Park.

Australian star Aaron Finch top-scored for the Lions with 69 runs off 39 balls before being bowled by Mohammed Shami. Finch shared a 92-run partnership for the fourth wicket with Dinesh Karthik (40 off 28), in what was a timely dig for the Aussie after Chris Lynn – potentially his direct rival for game time at the upcoming Champions Trophy – impressed with a big-hitting half-century the day before.


In reply, the Daredevils scored 8-197, mostly thanks to Shreyas Iyer, who thumped with 96 off 57 balls in an innings that included 15 fours and two sixes. The 22-year-old Indian was bowled by Basil Thampi in the last over to make the score 8-189 with four balls left.

Amit Mishra stayed calm, hitting the next two balls for four, giving Daredevils a close-fought win.

“We tried our best,” Lions captain Suresh Raina said. “We have lost a lot of tight games.”

Neither team will feature in the top four finals series.
