RCB vs DC match review
RCB’s treacherous run in this season just isn’t coming to an end. Be it home or away, the Virat Kohli lead side have been unable to turnaround their fortunes and Sunday’s match in the Indian Premier League 2019 against the Delhi Capitals was no different. Failing to make the most of pristine batting conditions at their own stadium, RCB’s woeful batting continued to condemn them to their sixth straight defeat of the season.
Chasing the 150-run target set to them by RCB, the tourists cruised through the entirety of their chase till the end moment. Needing 5 runs to win in 3 overs with 7 wickets to spare, Delhi yet again threw away wickets in only a manner associated to them to give their supporters a jittery finish. False and silly shots from Pant, Tewatia and Morris saw the visiting side lose 3 wickets with just 2 runs, before eventually hitting a four of Siraj’s 19th over to win with 7 balls and 4 wickets to spare.

It was a chase for Delhi that was constructed with stable partnerships between the second and fourth wickets’ stands. As Dhawan continued with his faltering run, departing for 0 in the first over itself, Delhi got into damage control mode quickly from there to ensure no further hurdles were faced. Shaw (28) and Ingram (22) both chipped in with the bat as Iyer (67) scored a half-century to ensure that Delhi managed to get their season back on track after suffering two abysmal defeats in their previous matches in the IPL.

Earlier in the day, batting first after losing yet another toss this season, Kohli’s unit were left completely flummoxed by the pace, bounce and swing prevalent owing to the light covering of grass on the surface. With their two set batsmen, Patel (9) and AB de Villiers (17) having to make their way back to the pavilion cheaply, being dismissed by Morris and Rabada respectively, RCB found themselves trapped in a conundrum.
Despite Virat Kohli holding fort at one end, looking for someone else to bat around him as he tried to build the foundation of his side’s innings, no one other than Moeen (32) was interested in the slightest in putting on a contribution of worth. Just when he had started to open his arms, Kohli failed to get under Rabada’s delivery to be caught out by Iyer for 41. As Rabada went onto pick up 4 wickets, RCB’s innings petered out for a lowly 149-8, seeing them all but out of the encounter.
