Ahmedabad: Brilliance of Delhi Capitals (DC) bowlers followed by cameos from Jake Fraser-McGurk, Abhishek Porel, and Shai Hope guided the side to a six-wicket victory against Gujarat Titans (GT) at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Wednesday.

Coming out to chase a mere total of 90 runs, DC batters Prithvi Shaw and Jake Fraser-McGurk were able to put in just 25 runs before McGurk was sent back to the dressing room after playing a quickfire knock of 20 runs in just 10 balls which was laced with two boundaries and two sixes each.

After the opener's dismissal, Shaw was also sent back to the pavilion after scoring just seven runs.

DC were 31/2 in 2.4 overs with Abhishek Porel and Shai Hope on the crease. The franchise completed the 50-run mark in 4.2 overs as Hope slammed a maximum on the bowling of Sandeep Warrior.

Hope and Porel built a partnership of 34 runs in just 14 balls before the latter was dismissed after scoring 15 runs in seven balls with the help of two fours and a six.

At the score of 67 runs, the Capitals lost the wicket of Hope who was dismissed after scoring 19 runs which included two maximums and a four.

The Delhi-based franchise was 67/4 in 5.4 overs with Rishabh Pant and Sumit Kumar on the crease. Both of them built an unbeaten partnership of 25 runs as the side won the match inside nine overs.

Earlier, put to bat first by DC after they won the toss, GT started on a promising note with two boundaries from skipper Shubman Gill. But in the second over, he handed over a simple catch to Prithvi Shaw when he had eight runs off six balls and two fours.

Sai Sudarshan joined Wriddhiman Saha at the other end. Sudarshan looked in good touch, smashing a boundary through cover point and the other through extra-cover region.

However, his partnership with Saha did not last long, as his stumps were castled by Mukesh Kumar for just two runs off 10 balls.

In the next over, Sudarshan's innings also met an unfortunate end as he was run out at the non-striker end by Sumit Kumar for 12 in nine balls, with two fours.

In the same over, GT received a big jolt when a returning David Miller was caught behind by Rishabh Pant, giving Ishant his second wicket. GT was 30/4 in five overs.
Abhinav Manohar and Rahul Tewatia were tasked with forming a partnership to guide the team out of troubled waters.

Tristan Stubbs was given the ball and his first over, in the ninth of the innings, dug GT deeper into an abyss.
