Delhi Capitals could manage only 164 for five despite a 62-ball 88 for the first wicket between openers Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Friday. For Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Mohammad Siraj took two wickets for 25 runs in four overs. Apart from them, ‘Purple Cap’ holder Harshal Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal and Dan Christian got one wicket each. After being invited to bat, Delhi Capitals got off to a good start thanks to Shaw (48 off 31 balls with four fours and two sixes) and Dhawan (43 off 35 balls) as the team added 55 runs without losing a wicket in the powerplay.

During this, Dhawan made a brilliant six by sweeping the ball of Glenn Maxwell. Both continued to bat in the same splendid rhythm. Shaw twice hit lofty sixes off leg-spinner Chahal while Shikhar hit his second six off Harshal Patel. Both took the team to 88 runs in 10 overs. But Delhi Capitals then lost one to three wickets in each of the next three overs.

On the very first ball of the 11th over, the first wicket was lost in the form of Dhawan, who was caught by Harshal Patel’s slow ball playing high. He hit three fours and two sixes in his 35-ball innings. Then captain Rishabh Pant came to the crease, who took the very first ball for a four. Shaw sent the first ball of the 12th over for a six, but Chahal’s next ball was lifted towards extra cover and caught by George Garten as he missed the half-century by two runs.

Then in the 13th over, after touching the bat on Dan Christian’s good length ball, Pant (10 runs) caught wicketkeeper Shrikar Bharat and reached the pavilion and his attempt to play a big innings again failed. Due to this the team lost three wickets within 20 runs. Shreyas Iyer and Shimron Hetmyer (29 off 22 balls with two fours and two sixes) added 16 runs in the 15th over with one six and two fours.

Royal Challengers Bangalore gave the fourth blow to Delhi Capitals in the form of Iyer, who scored 18 runs in 18 balls with a four, was dismissed by Mohammad Siraj. Hetmyer made some brilliant shots in the end but he could not get his team past 170 runs and became Siraj’s second victim off the last ball.
