Ashwin played DC’s match against SRH on Sunday.

DC rode on a half-century by Prithvi Shaw and handy knocks from Rishabh Pant and Steve Smith to post a complete of 159/4.

Despite a good start courtesy of Jonny Bairstow an a half-century from Kane Williamson, DC gave the impression to have sealed the win after Axar Patel struck twice in an over, with SRH needing 28 off the last two overs. On the other hand, debutant J Suchith — coming in at no.9 — hit two boundaries and a six as he and Williamson managed to tie the game and take the match to a Super Over.

Ashwin gave absent 27 runs for no wickets in his four overs.

Promoted

In the Super Over, bowled by Axar, Williamson and Warner managed to score just seven runs. They would have had eight, but Warner used to be found to have run one short.

With Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant sent in to face Rashid Khan, the Capitals managed to pull off the chase off the last delivery to seal their fourth win of the season.
