Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore suffered their sixth straight defeat as Delhi Capitals won the Indian Premier League match at M Chinnaswamy Stadium by four wickets on Sunday.
Kagiso Rabada (4/21) accounted for four RCB batsmen to lead Delhi’s bowling attack as RCB could only manage 149/8 after being made to bat on a tough wicket. Shreyas Iyer then played a captain’s knock, making a 50-ball 67 to guide Delhi Capitals to a comfortable win, bringing their IPL campaign back on track.
Here is how the cricket fraternity reacted:
Happy feeling to win today. Rabada was magnificient and Shreyas Iyer played a very mature innings. Hopefully we learn from our mistakes and don’t continue to repeat the same errors #RCBvDC pic.twitter.com/01bSdv3JGw
