Marsh in elite company

Marsh became only the fifth player to take four wickets and half-century in an IPL match. First, Marsh took 4/27 in four overs with one maiden. Later, in the run chase, Marsh blasted 63 off 39 with one four and six sixes. He won the Player of the match award. The other four players in the elite four-wicket plus half-century list are – Paul Valthaty, Yuvraj Singh (twice), Kieron Pollard and JP Duminy. Marsh’s feat comes after eight years.

Maiden fifties for wicketkeepers

It was also a day to remember for both teams’ wicketkeepers. SRH’s Heinrich Klaasen (53 off 27) and DC’s Phil Salt (59 off 35) scored their maiden IPL half-centuries.

Mayank Markande’s match-turning catch

Leg-spinner Mayank Markande’s sharp low catch off his own bowling in the 12th over derailed DC’s run chase. Markande dismissed Salt to end a 111-run partnership for the second wicket between Salt and Marsh. Apart from this brilliant catch, Markande was the top bowler in the match, going for just five runs per over and ended up with figures of 2/20 in four overs.
