RR vs DC, IPL 2021: We let them get over us in the end, says Pant

IPL 2021: DC skipper Rishabh Pant believes the dew, which made life a bit difficult for his bowlers in the second innings was a "learning process" and "part and parcel of the game".

Delhi Capitals (DC) captain Rishabh Pant said although his bowlers performed well during the initial overs they could have upped the ante in the closing stages of the Indian Premier League (IPL) match against the Rajasthan Royals (RR).

"I think the bowlers did a very good job in the starting. But we let them get over us in the end. But then it's all part and parcel of the game. We were like 15-20 runs short," Pant said during a post-match interview with the broadcaster.

As it happened

On Tuesday, RR went on to beat DC by three wickets and Pant believes the dew marred proceedings in the second innings. He said, "In the second innings, there was much more dew than the first innings. So the slower ball wasn't stopping. Hopefully if something like this happens again, we can pull it off. It is all a learning process."
