Aakash Chopra tweeted that Kagiso Rabada was described as the best fast bowler of this IPL season. He wrote that, ‘He dismissed two players for two runs in the super over, came in Sharjah for one over and sent the dangerous Andre Russell to the pavilion, and now the wicket of Virat Kohli in the first over of his new spell here in Dubai. Rabada, you are the best fast bowler of this IPL.
Bowls the Super Over for 2 runs and dismisses two batsmen. Came for an over and dismissed Russell at ‘Sharjah’. Here at Dubai…takes Kohli’s wicket in the first over of his new spell. Rabada is the best fast bowler in #IPL2020. #DelhiCapitals

DC captain Iyer made a big statement after the win against RCB
Let me tell you that before Kagiso Rabada, Royal Challengers Bangalore leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal had a purple cap. Chahal has taken 8 wickets so far this season while at number three is Mumbai Indians fast bowler Trent Boult, who has 8 wickets in his name. In this match Kagiso Rabada also got the support of other bowlers which made it easier for him to bowl without any pressure.
In addition to Rabada for Delhi Capitals, left-arm spinner Akshar Patel (2 for 18), Enrich Nortje (2 for 22) and Ravichandran Ashwin (1 for 26) also bowled well. Delhi Capitals spin bowler Akshar Patel was named ‘man of the match’ for his affordable bowling. With this win, Delhi Capitals have become the number one team in the points table. Mumbai Indians at number two and RCB are still at number 3 after this defeat.
