Shikhar Dhawan scored 28 runs, Rishabh Pant stacked 37 runs while Steven Smith contributed 34 runs for the team’s cause. While defending this total, pacer Avesh Khan grabbed 3 important wickets for the team, Axar Patel picked 2 wickets while Amit Mishra bagged one wicket to his name and the inning ended with scores of the team tied and the game went into the super-over, in which Delhi Capitals won the game at the last ball.
The comeback of Axar Patel to the squad is another positive for the team and the Delhi Capitals look like a complete squad in all aspects now.

In their last game, after losing the toss, Royal Challengers Bangalore were called to bowl first in response to which their bowlers bowled reasonably well, except for the last over from Harshal Patel which paralleled the record of highest runs (37), smashed by Ravindra Jadeja, in an over in VIVO IPL which led to an enormous total of 191 runs.
Harshal Patel picked 3 wickets while Yuzvendra Chahal picked one wicket. While chasing this total, skipper, and opener Virat Kohli lost his wicket early and as soon as he got out, the middle-order of the team once again surrendered against the spinning deliveries from Ravindra Jadeja and the team lost the game by 69 runs. In batting, only Devdutt Padikkal and Glenn Maxwell crossed the 20-run mark. The team will try to forget the last game and learn from the mistakes committed.
