IPL 2020 Highlights, DC vs RCB Match, Full Cricket Score: Delhi Capitals win by 6 wickets, both team qualify for playoffs

23:24 (IST)

That's it from us folks!

That was some match. Delhi Capitals did incredibly well to restrict RCB to a meagre total of 152 with some incredible bowling! Bangalore did their best to fight back, taking the early wicket of Prithvi Shaw, but ultimately, the partnership of Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane set up DC for the win perfectly. Both teams will be happy with their performances, seeing as both have sealed their place in the playoffs. We could all do with a break after the exhilarating last few hours of action, so here's where we bid you adieu. Do tune in tomorrow though, because we'll be right here, bringing you all the latest updates from Mumbai Indians' match against the Sunrisers Hyderabad. That's a match you won't want to miss, because if SRH were to win it, they would replace KKR in the playoffs! Until then, goodbye and goodnight. 

23:17 (IST)

Man of the Match Anrich Nortje speaks after the match:

I say it time and time again, it's just the basics. We had everyone doing the basics right, it wasn't down to one guy coming up with something special. Coming into this game, small things like rhythm started feeling better again, and once you get those right, it comes off well.

We were thinking about trying to make them hit towards the bigger boundaries. At the start it was difficult, in the powerplay, but we stuck to the plans we had for every batsman, and we tried to use the conditions well. There was a bit of dew at the end of our bowling.

23:14 (IST)

Delhi Capitals skipper Shreyas Iyer speaks after the match:

I'm very chuffed with the performance that the boys came up with today. We knew it was a do or die match for us and also an opportunity to get into second place. We'd already said that we wouldn't think about anything else, we wouldn't bother about the Net Run Rate, we were always focused on the win. We were really motivated.

It was a bit tougher to finish off the league stage after our good start, obviously. The teams who played well in the latter half of the season really changed the table. It's been a really competitive season so far.

I feel that the bowlers were really good with their plans, and they executed them perfectly. Anrich Nortje came back really well tonight, we had discussions about his performances and he really came through tonight.

We don't want to overcomplicate things now, we need to stick to our basics. It'll come automatically, if we execute things the way we have planned in our team meetings.

23:01 (IST)

Virat Kohli: "It's a mixed bag. You come to games to try and get a result your way. Even if the game was drifting away, we controlled the middle overs well enough. I think we've played good enough cricket in this tournament to qualify. We have two games to the final now. We can be more brave in the back end, probably be better in the powerplay (with the ball) which has been our strength."

22:54 (IST)

Delhi Capitals win by 6 wickets!

Mohammed Siraj to bowl the penultimate over, it's been a while since we last saw him. He starts off with a wide. There's really no need to be giving away extras at this point of the match. Oh lord, Marcus Stoinis has hit a six, and all the pressure seems to have melted off of DC's shoulders. He was sweating though, Chahal was jumping to catch that at the deep square boundary, but he's just a couple of inches too short to take that. Siraj then bowls another wide, he's intent on gifting this to DC. A double and a single follow, before Rishabh Pant wraps up the match with a boundary! A thick top edge clears the keeper AB de Villiers, but RCB are all smiles, because they know they've done what was needed. 

22:49 (IST)
six

SIX! Marcus Stoinis hits a massive maximum, to put Delhi Capitals 7 runs away from finishing second. DC 146/4

22:46 (IST)

After 18 overs,Delhi Capitals 138/4 ( Rishabh Pant (W) 3 , Marcus Stoinis 1)

Washington Sundar is on, and all he has to do really is to not be hit for three sixes in his first three deliveries. Not a tough thing to do, but in the IPL, you never know. Double off the first ball, and then a wicket! Rahane goes in almost identical fashion to Dhawan, he tries a lap reverse and sends it to Dube at short third. It's a good knock though, Rahane will take pleasure in knowing that he has almost assuredly taken his team to a win tonight. Marcus Stoinis comes on. Just four runs off the over, 15 runs needed in 12 balls.

22:44 (IST)

Both RCB and DC have qualified now for this year's playoffs.

Qualification Scenarios:

If SRH wins v MI then MI, DC, SRH and RCB will go through. 
If SRH loses v MI then MI, DC, RCB and KKR will go through.

OUT! Ajinkya Rahane 60 (46b). Strange that, from Rahane. He tried to play a reverse lap shot, and ends up hitting to short third.

22:40 (IST)

After 17 overs,Delhi Capitals 134/3 ( Ajinkya Rahane 58 , Rishabh Pant (W) 2)

Shahbaz Ahmed will bowl his last over now. He comes up good for Bangalore, Shreyas Iyer is out! The Delhi Capitals captain tried to go big, but the shot didn't have enough juice in it, it's taken quite comfortable by Siraj at long on. Rishabh Pant comes on in his place. 6 runs off the over, and Shahbaz takes a well-deserved break. He was absolutely excellent tonight, a rare bright spark in the Bangalore bowling attack.

IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Delhi Capitals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore latest updates: Mohammed Siraj to bowl the penultimate over, it's been a while since we last saw him. He starts off with a wide. There's really no need to be giving away extras at this point of the match. Oh lord, Marcus Stoinis has hit a six, and all the pressure seems to have melted off of DC's shoulders. He was sweating though, Chahal was jumping to catch that at the deep square boundary, but he's just a couple of inches too short to take that.

A thick top edge clears the keeper AB de Villiers, but RCB are all smiles, because they know they've done what was needed.

Preview: Delhi Capitals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Monday could've been dead rubber if the teams had maintained their superb form they showed a few weeks back. But both teams have lost consecutive matches – Delhi losing their last four while RCB suffering three defeats on a trot. Now, this is a must-win situation for both teams with net run-rate also coming into the picture.

At the moment, RCB are in second spot with 14 points followed by Delhi, who also have secured same number of points but have an inferior net run rate (NRR).

A victory on Monday will propel RCB into the top two and they will then play the first qualifier against Mumbai Indians. If they lose, then they will have to depend on other results. If Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad win their final matches then RCB could miss out on the top four because of NRR.

Not many expected Delhi Capitals would be in this kind of situation during the business end of the tournament. At one point, they were favourites to finish on the top but their fortunes took a terrible turn. Now their situation is similar like RCB. A win would guarantee the second spot on the table. A loss and victories for Punjab and Hyderabad would result in their departure.

So there's pressure on both Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer. Kohli's team possesses experienced international players while Iyer's side has the youngsters who have shown their abilities in the previous matches. If everything goes right, this could be a cracker of a game.
