Dubai: New Delhi: Delhi Capitals have reached the No. 1 spot in the IPL 2020 edition with 8 points.
Chasing a massive 197-run total by Delhi Capital, the RCB team managed only 137 runs for the loss of 9 wickets in their allotted 20 overs. The Delhi team continued their streak of winning a match of 190 plus runs in the IPL.
RCB lost 4 wickets for 94 and lost five wickets for 33 runs. It ranks third with a dismal defeat of -1.355.
With a massive target of 197 runs, the RCB team did not get off to a good start. Paddykal, who scored 4 runs in the final delivery of the 2nd over of the innings, gave up an easy catch. Finch, who scored 13 on his back, walked to the pavilion with Akshar Patel catching the bowling. Prior to the first over bowling of the innings, Rabada bowled Finch to death and failed to excel.
Ashwin Mankad Warning: Earlier in the match, R Ashwin had given Finch Warning the mankad out. Finch, who was on a nonstrike in the 4th delivery of the 3rd over, had left Chris before the bowler bowled. On this occasion, Finch looked at him and gave him a nod to Ashwin’s Mankad Warnig.
At the end of the 4th over, skipper Kohli made an effort to recover from a disastrous loss of 2 for 27. The first delivery of the innings was dismissed by a boundary. But AB Deliers, who scored 9 runs, was caught in the bowling of Unrich. The RCB lost the key three wickets to end the power play, scoring 43 runs.
Kohli and Moin Ali went on to increase the total of the team as the main wickets fell, but Akshar Patel struck 11 in the 12th over to give the wicket to the opposition. Virat Kohli caught the wicketkeeper’s wicket before bowling in the 14th over at Rabada bowling. Kohli was bowled out for 39 off 39 balls with 43 off six balls.
