CSK vs DC | Delhi Capitals will face Chennai Super Kings in the first qualifier match of IPL 2021. This match is being played at Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Delhi Capitals set a target of 173 runs to win against Chennai Super Kings with the help of half-centuries from opener Prithvi Shaw and skipper Rishabh Pant. While Shaw scored 60 runs, Pant, batting well in the last over, scored an unbeaten 51 runs. During this, Pant also made some such shots during his innings, which everyone was surprised to see.

Pant hit two sixes in his innings. The amazing thing was that he hit both these sixes with the same hand. Pant hit the first six with one hand, which was about 86 meters. When Shardul Thakur was bowling in the 16th over of Delhi's innings, he bowled a slow full toss to Pant. Pant swung the bat on this ball and with only one hand the ball reached the boundary. After this, he further hit the second six in a similar fashion. He also hit three fours in his innings.

Once in the match, while playing the shot, Pant missed the bat. The ball went to another place and the captain's bat reached another place. He also hit a six with one hand off Dwayne Bravo. This was Pant's second six in this innings. Apart from these sixes, Pant set a new record in this match as soon as he landed on the field. Pant has become the youngest captain to captain a team in the playoffs in any IPL. Pant is 24 years and 6 days old. Earlier this record was in the name of his own teammate Shreyas Iyer. Iyer became the captain to play IPL playoff in 25 years 10 months 29 days.
