Marcus Stoinis, who strode out to open alongside Shikhar Dhawan, got Delhi Capitals off to a flying start in the Powerplay. Stoinis was dropped on 3 by Jason Holder at silly mid-on, and the Australian all-rounder made Hyderabad pay with attacking stroke play.

He struck five fours and a six off the next nine balls as Delhi raced to 65 at the end of the Powerplay. He was eventually clean bowled by Rashid Khan for a 27-ball 38. Later, Stoinis picked three for 26 including the wicket of the in-form Kane Williamson to put Delhi in control.

Stoinis has been opening the innings in the Big Bash League since 2018, racking up 10 half-centuries and a century at a strike rate of 133. He was Delhi’s best batsman in the humbling defeat against Mumbai Indians in Qualifier 1, having hit a 46-ball 65.
