RCB vs DC: Delhi Capitals slump to 5th straight defeat


RCB vs DC: At the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Saturday, Delhi Capitals lost their fifth straight defeat, falling by 23 runs to RCB, and remain at the bottom of the standings. Meanwhile, RCB moved up to seventh place with two points.

Mohammed Siraj, Wayne Parnell, and IPL debutant Vijaykumar Vyshak were all on fire, and the early damage, 2/3 in the powerplay overs, was exacerbated in the middle. The one bright spot in Delhi’s relatively hesitant chase was Manish Pandey’s 37-ball fifty.

Royal Challengers Bangalore got a solid start after being put into bat, thanks to Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis. In the fifth over, Faf was caught by Aman Hakim Khan. Kohli, on the other hand, went on to hit his third consecutive fifty at home. Kohli fell to a delicious full toss on the next ball, and RCB lost the plot.

In the middle overs, Mahipal Lomror (26) and Glenn Maxwell (24) contributed to making it past 150. Harshal Patel, Maxwell, and Dinesh Karthik were all dismissed in three balls as RCB dropped from 132/3 to 132/6. Finally, Shahbaz Ahmed and Anuj Rawat put on 40 runs in the last five overs to take them to 174.

DC lost Prithvi Shaw and Mitchell Marsh for 0 before Mohammed Siraj trapped Yash Dhull LBW for 1. David Warner got off to a good start, but he could only reach 19 runs before being dismissed by Vijaykumar Vyshak. Manish Pandey hammered a half-century, and Axar Patel chipped in with a 14-ball 21 as Delhi could only manage 151/9.

RCB will be encouraged by the return of mystery pinner Wanindu Hasaranga. RCB has two home games in three days, which provides an opportunity to capitalize on the familiarity of the home surface and conditions.
