Royal Challengers Bangalore VS Delhi Capitals IPL LIVE SCORE and LATEST UPDATES

  • And that brings us to the end of the first game of the Sunday double-header, as RCB suffer their sixth consecutive loss of the season, with things going from bad to worse for skipper Virat Kohli! DC, meanwhile, bounce back after suffering back-to-back losses, and are now level with SRH, KKR, MI and KXIP — the five teams have six points each, although Delhi have played the most matches among them (six). 

    Time for us to shift our attention to the second match of the day, with KKR opting to bowl against RR at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium in Jaipur. Follow live updates on the match here. 

  • Kagiso Rabada is Player of the Match for his 4/21

    Rabada: It worked for me today and I am glad about it. On a daily basis, you try to excecute simple skills. That's all I try and I back myself. If people look for advice, I am always there. 

  • Shreyas Iyer, DC captain: It was tough to bat on. It was two-paced. I played positive and it worked out well. Cut shots is my positive strength. It was good to see Rabada bowl so well. 

  • Virat Kohli, RCB skipper: We thought 160 would be competitive. Even 150 would've been par. We kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Wanted to take the game deep, which we did eventually. Had we held on to our chances, we could've given them a tough time. We were not good enough yet again. When AB got out, I had to dig deep. Stoin was good. Moin was good. The pitch also didn't allow us to play the shots in the first innings. When the mind is cluttered, you won't be able to collect the chances that come your way. In T20, no one's going to give you chances. Right in the end, they panicked as well. Never know, if we had 20-25 runs more. The more we get frustrated, the more it's going to get tougher. The key is to take it easy and relax. 

  • Poor run continues for RCB. 

  • Gaurav Joshi, Freelance cricket writer

    The season is turning sour very quickly for RCB. They are 0-6 and need a.miracle to make the finals. DC were sensational today, led by Rabada and a mature knock by Iyer. Ponting still might need a few stern words for Pant and his middle order, they should be finishing such game with ease. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

  • Gaurav Joshi, Freelance cricket writer

    Iyer's highest score in the tournament and he had paced his innings brilliantly. The way he goes deep into the crease against spin makes the bowlers pitch fuller against which he capitalises. Surprised he was not earmarked as the No.4 at the world Cup.

Misfield by Siraj at third man allows the ball to cross over the boundary rope for a four. Single collected off each of the last two balls. Nine off the over; less than run-a-ball for DC, with 27 needed off 30 now. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Rishabh Pant’s scores against RCB read: 1, 57, 45, 85 and 61.

  • FOUR! Iyer slashes this towards third man, where Siraj's continues his fielding woes, with the ball bursting out of his hands and crossing over the boundary rope. DC 121/3

  • FOUR! Iyer cuts a short ball from Chahal behind square, moving to 48 with the shot! DC 108/2

  • Gaurav Joshi, Freelance cricket writer

    Shreyas Iyer needs to see Delhi home in this match. There will still be a few demons after that loss in Mohali in Kings XI. This is a game Delhi should not lose and cannot afford to lose. 

  • FOUR! Ingram sweeps, and sweeps hard, beating the man diving at deep backward square-leg! Brings up the 100 for DC with the shot! DC 100/2

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Negi continues from the other end. Iyer gets a thick top-edge towards the leg gully region. Patel calls out for the catch, but doesn't get to the ball in time. Fielding running in from short third man had a better chance, but trusted Patel on this occasion. Ingram smacks the ball over deep extra cover for a flat six, but suffers a stumping scare off the next ball after getting foxed by Negi. Fine stop by Nath at deep extra cover off the fifth delivery, after a powerful cut by Ingram, to save a couple of runs for the hosts. Ingram ends the over with a boundary.

  • After 10 overs,Delhi Capitals 80/2 ( Shreyas Iyer (C) 42 , Colin Ingram 2)

    Moeen brought into the attack in the 10th over, with a slip in place. Starts off wiht three dots, with Ingram setting off for a single off the fourth.

IPL 2019, RCB vs DC, Today's Match Preview: Royal Challengers Bangalore, captained by Virat Kohli, will aim to break the points duck when they take on Delhi Capitals at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

The Challengers lost all their previous five matches in the current season, sitting at the bottom of the eight-team table and facing a daunting task to make it to the playoffs. The pressure is on Kohli, whose team suffered massively due not-so-potent bowling attack. In their last match against Kolkata Knight Riders, the bowlers, especially the pacers, couldn't stop Andre Russell, who smashed 13-ball 48 to help his team chase down a huge total of 206 runs.

After the humiliating defeat, Kohli said, "There is no guessing there (about where we lost the game), the last four overs that we bowled was just unacceptable. We needed to be more clever, nothing came off and we just cracked under pressure. That's been our story this season so far."

Shreyas Iyer's Delhi Capitals are also suffering when it comes to form, having lost their last two matches. They have played five matches so far and tasted success only twice. They would want to regain the winning momentum against the struggling home team. Rishabh Pant will once again be the key for his team. He should look to take maximum advantage of a poor bowling attack and the short boundaries.
