In the first match of their IPL 2020 campaign, the Delhi Capitals batting seemed extremely wobbly throughout their innings.

With Shikhar Dhawan getting run out for a zero in the second over of the game, and then Prithvi Shaw and Shimron Hetmyer departing in the fourth over, the Capitals were staring at a score of 13/3.

Skipper Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant steadied the innings a little, but none of them could stay for long and help propel the score to a defendable total.

As the wickets continued to fall at regular interval, the Capitals were 127/7 before the final over of the match was to be bowled.

Kings XI Punjab skipper gave the bowl to Chris Jordan, who is often looked upon as the T20 specialist for England, and has been part of the English T20 set-up for a while now. His bowling figures at the moment read 3-0-26-0.

Marcus Stoinis was the batsman for Delhi Capitals at the crease and was batting at 28 off 15 balls. The Australian has been in good form, having batted at the No. 3 position for Australia in the T20 International last month against England, in the absence of Steve Smith.

For the first ball from Jordan, he walked across to the leg stump, and flicked it over the square leg boundary for a massive six.

He followed it up with three consecutive fours and another six of the fifth ball, to bring up his 50 off just 20 balls.

In a slight twist to the over, he was run out while trying to go for a double off the last bowl of the match. But Chris Jordan had overstepped and another ball had to be bowled.

But with Stonis having got run out, Andre Nortje walked in and lifted the last bowl to run 3 runs.

By the end of the over, Chris Jordan’s figures were 4-0-56-0, and Delhi Capitals score was 157/8.

Chris Jordan had conceded 30 runs in the last over of the match, which is a joint-record now with the then Rising Pune Supergiant’s bowler Ashok Dinda, who scored the same number of runs in a match against Mumbai Indians in 2017.
