Royal Challengers Bangalore finally end their losing run against Delhi Capitals, having lost four on the trot since 2019. At the time of Marcus Stoinis getting caught-behind off Harshal Patel’s bowling, RCB appeared favourites to coast to their fifth victory of the season, but the fightback from Rishabh Pant and Shimron Hetmyer ensured the game wasn’t decided until the very last delivery, in which the skipper collected a boundary when he needed a six.


That’s it from us in our coverage of the 22nd game of the season. We hope you enjoyed our coverage. Join us tomorrow as we bring to you Chennai Super Kings’ clash against Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi. On behalf of my colleague, Anish, this is Amit signing off.

AB de Villiers: "The shot over extra cover was certainly one of the best shots, but the one over midwicket off KG was my best one. Once you're into the tournament, it's more about managing yourself, make sure you're fresh every game. You can't go into the game feeling fatigued. We have some experienced heads and some young Indian bowlers who have done well recently. Myself, Virat and Maxi chip in with some help when we can too. We just try to have fun out there."

AB de Villiers is the Man of the Match

Virat Kohli, RCB captain: (Did he think he was going to lose?) At one stage I did, to be very honest. The way Siraj started the last over, gave us a lot of confidence. He finished it clinically in the end. Couple of lapses, and the game wouldn’t have gone so far the way it did. The bowlers did a very professional job barring the last four overs. Other than that, I think we were right on top of this game. We certainly felt 160-165 was above par, and we got 10 runs above it. It was a bit two-paced, and there wasn’t any dew tonight that helped us, thanks to that sandstorm or dust storm whatever. If you look at our bowling lineup, Maxi is still not bowling. I have six bowling options, and I can throw it to any of them. If you look at our bowling this season, that’s been our standout feature this season. We’ve always had good batting. Now we have bowling options too. I choose to be optimistic and positive. You do feel the pressure as a captain. That’s where you need to be composed. I go with the gut feel of the bowler. If you get that much clarity in your process, you’re in a good space. (On ABD) Hat’s off to him, he keeps doing it again and again, and is such an asset for us. Doesn’t look like he hasn’t played international cricket for five months.

23:28 (IST)

Rishabh Pant:

"Obviously disappointed. I think they were 10-15 runs extra on this wicket but Hetmyer played a brilliant innings, because of him we got close. When we had 14 or 16 to go, we were planning that whoever has strike has to go for it. It's good to take positives from all matches, as a young team we want to improve each and every day."

Pant collects a brace off the fourth to bring up his half-century. Left with 10 off the last two, Pant only manages to collect back-to-back boundaries as Siraj doesn’t give him the room to go for a maximum.

Preview: Having suffered their first defeat of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 after getting off to a dream start, the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will hope to bounce back in their upcoming clash against Delhi Capitals at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Tuesday.

RCB suffered a 69-run thrashing at the hands of Chennai Super Kings (CSK), who outplayed Virat Kohli's men in all departments in their encounter at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The victory propelled MS Dhoni and company to the top of the IPL 2021 points table, and Kohli will be hoping to reclaim that spot later on Tuesday evening.

Delhi Capitals, who had finished runners up for the first time last season, managed to scrape through to a hard-fought victory against the Sunrisers Hyderabad at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Sunday, the same day as CSK's victory over RCB. In the match that saw the first Super Over of the season, Axar Patel managed to bowl a tight line after being entrusted the responsibility of bowling the crucial six deliveries by skipper Rishabh Pant. Skipper Pant then combined with opener Shikhar Dhawan to guide the team to a thrilling victory and secure them two crucial points in the race to the playoffs.

What will additionally help motivate RCB heading into the 22nd match of the season will be the fact that DC had completed a double over them last season in the UAE, defeating them by 59 runs and six wickets respectively.
