Delhi Capitals beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by 59 runs after putting an almost mammoth score of 196/4 in the stipulated 20 overs. Chasing the total, RCB could just post 137 for nine.
With this win, Delhi move to the top of the table with four wins and one loss. Bangalore lost the plot early with the loss of its openers and then the fall of Ab de Villiers further pushed them back. Virat Kohli, tried but just didn’t have the support as Kagiso Rabada.
Earlier, Delhi Capitals rode on Marcus Stoinis’ unbeaten 26-ball 53 and good contributions from Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant to post 196/4. Credit to Stoinis for pulling Delhi out of the hole and taking them to a very good total.
For Bangalore trouble began early when Anrich Nortje dented Bangalore’s run chase by removing the dangerous Ab de Villiers.
De Villiers went for a huge shot but mistimed it as the ball hit the bottom of the bat and Shikhar Dhawan ran back to take a brilliant skier. At this time Bangalore were already 37 for 3 in six overs and could never recover from there till the end of the innings.
