Indian Premier League Match 46
Delhi Capitals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore
Toss: Delhi Capitals won the toss and decided to bat first
Opted to bat first by their skipper Shreyas Iyer, Delhi Capitals had the terrific start. Opener Prithvi Shaw was looking promising but unfortunately dismissed on 18 runs. Well, Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer consolidated the innings together and both scored half-centuries. Shreyas Iyer out after scoring 52 runs off 37 balls. Shikhar Dhawan also dismissed on exact 50 runs off 37 balls also. Rishabh Pant, however, failed to show some impact with the bat and out early on 7. The good effort of the opener and skipper was further carried out by Colin Ingram and Sherfane Rutherford. Axar Patel was also played a cameo of 16 runs off 9 balls and remain not out.
That was a poor end by RCB giving away 46 runs in the last 3 overs and that is the thing that had the effect and helped take DC from what resembled 170 to a gigantic aggregate of 187.
Delhi Capitals score : 187-5 in 20 overs.
Two fours! RCB need to score rapidly and they begin in a quick way. Parthiv has been getting off the imprint rapidly this year and he closes Ishant’s first over with two fours.
Axar Patel is the man sharing the new ball and his karma isn’t vastly improved. Parthiv stores him for a major six and the over again goes for 10 runs.
Lamichhane comes into the assault and Parthiv Patel and Virat Kohli have recently pounded him for three fours. This is an incredible begin for RCB and seems as though they need to accomplish this objective as quickly as time permits.
Captain Virat Kohli withdraws. Sharma bowls an incredible ball and figures out how to get an edge of Kohli. Gasp takes the catch. Be that as it may, the replays demonstrate that the ball has skiped before Pant finished the catch.
In spite of the two wickets that have succumbed to RCB, they are as yet keeping up a decent run rate. This is magnificent batting by AB de Villiers as he crushes Mishra for a six over midwicket. RCB are 82/2 after 9 overs.
Dube looks in great structure as he crushes Lamichhane for another six. RCB are cruising along actually pleasantly.
Rutherford may have quite recently gotten the greatest wicket here. ABD goes for a big deal against the bowler however is gotten splendidly by Axar Patel at the limit. DC have made a rebound here. He leaves for 17. It’s 103/3.
Rabada goes ahead for the last over as RCB need 26 keeps running from 6 balls. The way Rabada has bowled in this competition, it looks incomprehensible. He begins off with a wide however. What’s more, Sundar skies one straight under the control of Iyer. Sundar goes for 1 as RCB are 164/7.
Stoinis is playing a little diamond of an innings as he whacks Rabada for a six through midwicket. Be that as it may, it’s the situation of short of what was needed for RCB. Furthermore, it’s everywhere. DC beat RCB by 16 runs and have entered the playoffs as of now. An incredible success for the home group.
