Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) were asked to bat first by Delhi Capitals (DC). RCB put on a decent score of 174-6 in 20 overs. RCB was in a precarious position at 132-6 in 14.1 overs as all the star players were back in the dugout. Anuj Rawat (*impact player) along with Shahbaz Ahmed stitched an invaluable partnership of 42 runs. Anuj Rawat was seen struggling, and Shahbaz Ahmed played a cameo of 20 runs in 12 balls.

The left-arm chinaman Kuldeep Yadav was the pick of the bowlers who took 2 wickets in his 4 overs and gave away only 23 runs and astoundingly bowled a maiden over which is invaluable in modern cricket. Kuldeep Yadav had bowled 10 dot balls & was spot on with his line & length.

Virat Kohli continued his purple patch by scoring yet another half-century despite the early dismissal of Faf du Plessis in the power-play overs. RCB would be quite disappointed that the likes of Glenn Maxwell & Mahipal Lormor couldn’t convert their starts.

Watch – Anuj Rawat sends back Prithvi Shaw with a pinpoint direct hit

Prithvi Shaw came into the run chase as the impact player substitute. Mohammed Siraj was bowling the opening over, on the 4th delivery Prithvi Shaw played a shot towards the covers region but couldn’t time it properly, Anuj Rawat stopped the ball one-handed and hit the stumps with a direct hit as Prithvi Shaw was quite behind. Prithvi Shaw was dismissed on 0 in 2 balls as his poor run continued.

Mohammed Siraj throughout his 4 deliveries made sure that he bowls wicket to wicket. Earlier on the 2nd delivery, Prithvi Shaw had turned down the double run as Warner was quite furious. This early breakthrough will give immense confidence to RCB as they don’t have a big score on the board.

Crucial Phase for DC

DC skipper David Warner will have to make sure that the side scores at least 40 odd runs in the power-play overs. All eyes would be on Mitchell Marsh as he has the knack of playing a breezy knock & can thrash the batters with his brisk stroke-play.

Skipper Faf du Plessis wouldn’t have asked for a better start. Faf would be aware of the fact that they have to keep on taking wickets, we witnessed how LSG’s batters pulled back the game when the team were almost out of the game in the middle overs.
