The Delhi Capitals opener scored a quick-fire 32 off just 17 balls against Punjab, giving them the impetus they needed in a 196-run chase. His best shot came in the second over, where he effortlessly picked up a length ball from Richardson and deposited it in the stands.

It is one of the best shots of the tournament so far.
