DC vs RCB: Live Score and Update
DC vs RCB: DC thrash RCB!
Delhi Capitals started with 5 losses. They have bounced back to win four in the next five games. What a turnaround for them. And their wins are convincing with every game. This match is a proper thrashing. They have chased 182 in 16.4 overs. They need 16 runs in 30 balls and they did it in just 10. Salt’s assault did the damage and DC now move to the ninth spot. Delighted faces in DC camp, but grim faces in the RCB camp! This will hurt them and their play-off chances with the race getting tighter with every passing game.
DC vs RCB: DC continue to hammer RCB!
Just 16 runs needed off the last five overs! DC did well to continue to momentum and haven’t lost wickets in a cluster tonight. They have ticked another box here. Every cricket fan must be wondering where was this DC hiding? Well they are here now and will look to finish it as soon as possible! Capitals are 166/2 after 15 overs.
DC vs RCB: DC off to a flying start!
The DC openers came out with a ultra-positive mindset. They went hard in the powerplay to put pressure back on the Royal Challengers. Makes RCB’s effort pale in comparison. And with Rossouw still to come, RCB are in trouble unless they can take quick wickets and shift the pressure back. They have done well to remove Warner in the sixth over but they need to get them regularly! DC 70/1 after 6 overs.
DC vs RCB: RCB finish strong, cross 180!
Royal Challengers Bangalore end up with 181/4 at the end of 20 overs. This is a competitive score. RCB have scored 55 runs off the last five overs. RCB will be happy with this total.
The target for Delhi Capitals in 182 runs from 120 balls. The pitch isn’t exactly a belter, but isn’t a tough one to score either. A good contest of bat and bowl awaits in the second innings. RCB would look for early wickets, while DC would look for a fluent start!
DC vs RCB: RCB gear-up for the strong finish!
Virat Kohli has reached his 50 off 42 balls. Mahipal Lomror is going after the bowlers and looking to be aggressive. RCB should look to get another 50 runs. 170 could be challenging to chase on this wicket! Virat must look to score quickly now! RCB are 126/2 after 15 overs.
Marsh strikes twice!
The man with the golden arm for Delhi Capitals. He first gets Faf caught at the boundary with a slower delivery. The very next ball he dismisses Maxwell for a first-ball duck. He extracts good bounce to catch Maxi’s edge.
DC vs RCB: The opening partnership carries on!
Faf du Plessis has crossed 500 runs this season and is looking good for another big score here. His partner in crime has just slowed down a touch! The two openers have however given RCB an excellent start. They are 79/0 after 10 overs.
DC vs RCB: A productive powerplay!
Royal Challengers Bangalore has scored 51/0 in the powerplay. Virat started with some glorious drives. Faf was a bit slow to start, but once he felt the middle of the bat he smoked the ball to boundary. The pitch seems to be aiding the spinners with it’s low bounce. We might see Kuldeep coming in quickly.
STAT: Virat Kohli crosses 7000 IPL runs. He becomes the first batter to reach the landmark. Kohli has acheived this feat in 225 innings.

What to Expect?.. The Delhi surface has traditionally been a fast bowler’s ally, but the shorter dimensions of the stadium will aid batters in their endeavour to score a huge total. The captains have decided to chase in Delhi and have been successful on all three times this season.
