RCB vs DC: Match 62 of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2024) witnessed the Royal Challengers Bengaluru continue their brilliant winning streak in the tournament as they defeated Delhi Capitals by 47 runs in Bengaluru on May 12.

RCB Post 187/9 vs DC

Batting first, RCB’s opening pair of Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis made a promising start but suffered a setback when Du Plessis was dismissed in the 3rd over with just 6 runs to his name. Virat Kohli also fell during the powerplay, caught out by his former Delhi teammate Ishant Sharma for 27 runs.

Rajat Patidar and Will Jacks then formed a crucial partnership of 88 runs, guiding RCB from 36/2 to 124/3 by the 12.3rd over, before Patidar was eventually dismissed. Patidar contributed with a 32-ball 52, showcasing his consistent form for the home team.

Jacks, after scoring 41 runs, was also sent back to the pavilion in the 15th over, courtesy of a delivery from Kuldeep Yadav. Cameron Green then took charge, adding valuable runs for RCB.

Green’s resilient unbeaten 32 helped RCB post a competitive total of 187/9 in their allotted 20 overs.

RCB Continue Winning Run

Chasing a competitive 188, DC saw a familiar name in the form of David Warner return for their side. However, it wasn’t an eventful return as the Aussie veteran lost his wicket in the very first over courtesy of a Swapnil Singh delivery.

What followed for the visitors was a top-order meltdown as Jake Frazer McGurk and Abishek Porel both lost their wickets cheaply within the powerplay on 21 and 2 runs respectively.

Shai Hope and Axar Patel tried to bring some momentum into Delhi’s chase but failed to do so as Hope got dismissed after a gritty 23-ball 29. With the score at 86/5 at 9.3 overs, Axar Patel and Tristan Stubbs got the task on themselves to take DC over the line in what was proving to be a challenging task.

However, Tristan Stubbs’ early dismissal left Axar Patel as the only proper batter on the crease. Axar Patel’s well-made 57 on the night kept DC’s innings going but never got them looking like they would take the 2 points away from the hosts. In the end, Delhi Capitals were restricted to just 140, eventually putting a big dent in their playoff hopes.
