IPL 2019, RCB vs DC Highlights: Royal Challengers Bangalore’s woeful run this IPL continues as the Virat Kohli-led side suffered its sixth straight defeat while Delhi Capitals played like a unit to win by four wickets at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Sunday. Chasing 150, Shreyas Iyer played a captain’s innings hitting 50 runs off 67 balls to guide Delhi Capitals to a comfortable win. Iyer anchored the chase with some crucial partnerships as Delhi overhauled the target with 10 balls to spare. In the bowling department, South Africa pacer Kagiso Rabada (4/21) accounted for four RCB batsmen to lead Delhi’s bowling attack, which also comprised Chris Morris (2/28).
