Rilee Rossouw is one of the most exciting batters to watch when he gets going and after struggling throughout the season for that one defining knock, he finally got one against PBKS. He smashed 82 off just 37 balls and took his side to a mammoth total of 213 which proved too hot to handle for PBKS in the end.

Rossouw was awarded the player of the match award and the South African was naturally very happy with his performance. He credited team management for backing him and added that he is just happy to perform for the team. He stated that the wicket was good one to bat on and applauded Shaw and Warner for the start. He mentioned that he just enjoyed himself in the middle and was lucky to hit some over the ropes.

"Thanks to the support staff that backed me to play the game today. Just chuffed that I could perform and win for the team.It's a good wicket out there. Davey and Shaw put up a brilliant partnership for us to carry out that momentum. It's just natural that I enjoyed myself out there and lucky for me I hit the ball over the rope tonight,"

Rossouw also talked about the anxious moments on the field when Livingstone was batting and added that the game is never over till the last ball is bowled. He signed off by applauding Livingstone for his breathtaking knock.

''I was just worried about taking the catches and stopping the ball. It just shows that the game is never over until the last ball is bowled and credit to Livi, he played an unbelievable knock and thank goodness we got over the line."

Delhi Capitals will now play their last game of IPL 2023 against CSK at Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on 20th of May.
