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).
Earlier, RCB batsmen found the going tough on a tough wicket after being invited to bat first and could only manage 149 for 8 in the stipulated 20 overs. With the ball not coming on to the bat, Kohli scored almost a-run-a-ball before hitting two sixes late in his innings, consuming 33 balls for his 41. Had it not been for Kohli and Moeen Ali’s contributions, RCB would have been in deep trouble.
Delhi Capitals (DC) Playing XI: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer (C), Rishabh Pant (W), Colin Ingram, Chris Morris, Axar Patel, Rahul Tewatia, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma, Sandeep Lamichhane.
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) Playing XI: Parthiv Patel (W), Virat Kohli (C), AB de Villiers, Marcus Stoinis, Moeen Ali, Akshdeep Nath, Pawan Negi, Navdeep Saini, Tim Southee, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Siraj.
