After a bad start, the Delhi Capitals didn’t have to worry about what people thought of them, and this has set them free. After the auction, their batting lineup was thought to be one of the most feared. Today, most of the pieces fell into place, showing why. Warner first went after Siraj and Hazlewood, and he started playing with a strike rate that is more typical for him.
Phil Salt also hit Siraj for two sixes and a four. Siraj was the best powerplay bowler in this IPL. Warner was fooled by Hazlewood’s slower one, but Warner’s replacement, Mitch Marsh, kept the pressure on. Phil Salt also didn’t give up, as shown by his innings of 87, which has six sixes.
Sourav Ganguly and Virat Kohli shake hands after Delhi Capitals beat Royal Challengers Bangalore
Both of these batters couldn’t finish the game, so Rilee Rossouw was able to get a hit with a quick 35 runs off only 22 balls. A big win for DC. This moves them, past SRH and from last place. For RCB, nothing they did with the ball worked, and when your key bowlers are getting beaten up, maybe it’s just one of those days to forget. Also, their speed in the middle overs has been a worry. Virat Kohli needs to score more quickly in the middle overs after the powerplay is over.
There was an incident in the last game, as Virat Kohli and Sourav Ganguly did not shake hands. However, after the end of this game, they did shake hands.
