IPL 2020, RCB vs DC: Delhi Capitals beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by 59 runs.

Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore crumbled against Delhi Capitals as the team endured a 59-run crushing defeat in the Indian Premier League clash on Monday. After being asked to bat first, Delhi Capitals posted a mammoth 196/4 on the board, with Marcus Stoinis emerging as the leading scorer. The Aussie remained unbeaten on 53 from 26 balls. Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant too showed some power as the duo scored 42 (23) and 37 (25) respectively.

In response, RCB got off to a poor start losing in-form Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch and AB de Villiers inside the powerplay overs. Kohli hung around in the middle but he too couldn’t make any impact as he send packing on 43 by Kagiso Rabada. The South African pacer finished the contest with four wickets from four overs. With this win, the Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi unit have climbed to the top of the points table.

Kagiso Rabada picks up another wicket and this time it is Washington Sundar, who has to take the long walk back to the pavilion. It was short delivery and the batsman tried to make some room and smash it towards the on-side. However, he fails to connect as the ball goes straight to Ashwin at mid-wicket. RCB: 115/6 (16 overs) 

22:37 (IST)05 Oct 2020
Virat Kohli departs!

Virat Kohli departs as Kagiso Rabada takes his first wicket of the match. The length was bit tight, cramped Kohli for room as he tried to knock it down the leg side. However, the ball takes the bottom edge and Rishabh Pant completes a good catch. The skipper departs after scoring 43 from 39 balls. RCB: 97/5 (14 overs)   

22:32 (IST)05 Oct 2020

22:28 (IST)05 Oct 2020
Moeen Ali departs!

Moeen Ali marches out of the crease and hits the ball by Axar Patel before it hits the surface. However, his shot goes straight into the hands of Shimron Hetmyer as the batsman departs after scoring 11 from 13 balls. The chase is getting tougher for RCB with every passing delivery. RCB: 76/4 (12 overs) 

22:24 (IST)05 Oct 2020
Boundaries have dried up!

The boundaries have dried up but the batsmen are dealing in doubles, and Kohli is an expert at running between the wickets. However, RCB will need boundaries as the required run-rate is mounting. RCB: 70/3 | need 127 runs in 54 balls

RCB in great trouble!

RCB in great trouble as Anrich Nortje gets the big wicket of AB de Villiers. Yes you read that right, a length ball and De Villiers hits it high up in the air, plenty of time for Shikhar Dhawan to settle under it and complete the catch cleanly. In the end he makes no mistake as RCB lose their third wicket. RCB: 43/3 (6 overs) 

21:56 (IST)05 Oct 2020
Finch finally departs!

A hint of spin from Axar Patel and it's enough to bring an end to Finch's inning. The ball moves away, takes a faint edge and Rishabh Pant completes the rest. RCB has lost both their openers in the powerplay overs but with his dismissal AB de Villiers joins captain Kohli out in the middle. RCB: 27/2 (4 overs) 

21:48 (IST)05 Oct 2020
'Mankad' alert!

Ashwin could have mankad Finch but he doesn't remove the bails and keeps staring at the batsman. I guess the bowler is following his coach's word, who has been very adamant against mankad. However, that moment is gone and Ashwin has delivered with the ball.

The leggie offers some flight and Padikkal goes for the aerial route. However, his shot goes straight into the hands of Marcus Stoinis as RCB lose their first wicket. RCB: 20/1 (3 overs) 

21:44 (IST)05 Oct 2020
The admin seems furious!

What's happening!

A 150-kmph case delivery from Anrich Nortje and Finch goes for the wild slash. The ball takes an outside edge and flies straight to Shikhar Dhawan at first slip and he too fails to get hold of the ball. This is the third time that Delhi has dropped Finch inside two overs. RCB: 15/0 (2 overs) 

21:39 (IST)05 Oct 2020
Aaron Finch survives again!

Aaron Finch survives again and this time it is the skipper Shreyas Iyer who misses the catch. A fullish delivery with good pace and some movement and it takes the outside edge of Finch and goes towards the first slip. However, Iyer fails to grab it as Finch survives twice in the span of six balls. RCB: 5/0 (1 over) 

21:35 (IST)05 Oct 2020
Rabada drops Finch!

Kagiso Rabada drops a sitter. Comes in drops a good length ball onto Smith's pad and the Aussie plays it straight towards the bowler. However, Rabada fails to grab it as Finch survives. How much will it cost Delhi?
