Kagiso Rabada has been the lead bowler for Delhi Capitals in the IPL 2020. His performance has backed the Delhi Capitals batsmen and set a good balance for the side. Rabada has impressed one and all including the likes of head coach Ricky Ponting, especially after his performance against RCB in their previous outing.

Asked to bat, Delhi Capitals put up a total of 196/4 on board in the stipulated 20 overs. But RCB were restricted to 137/9 in the chase with captain Virat Kohli top-scoring for his side. The Bangalore franchise was restricted to a lowly total, thanks to a brilliant performance from Rabada as he returned figures of 4/24.
