Delhi Daredevils vs Royal Challengers Bangalore IPL 2017

Posted May 17, 2017

Having who's who of cricket, Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle, ABD and Watson, the team could not perform as per its standards and tonight they would want to go home with a consolidatory win.

Unlike the previous seasons, RCB's batting has been the biggest disappointment with the likes of Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers and Kohli himself not stepping up. However, RCB is also desperate to end their campaign by winning the last game as they wish to have a graceful exit from IPL 10.

RCB skipper Virat Kohli who had a wonderful season previous year did not have the best of times in the ongoing IPL tournament.

Delhi Daredevils take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the final group stage match of 2017 Indian Premier League at the Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi on Sunday.

After the post-match presentation, Kohli was seen running towards fans and in a lovely gesture, he gave away his stylish player of the match trophy to one of the fans in the stadium.

Cummins was the pick of the bowlers with two wickets, while Nadeem and Zaheer chipped in with one wicket apiece. Gayle smacked 77 off 38 balls, with seven sixes, to power an opening stand of 122 with Kohli, who made 64 off 50 balls. In the final over, Pawan Negi smashed three successive fours to help the side cross the 150 mark.

Kohli brought up his half-century at the end of the 15th over, needing 39 balls to get to the milestone.

Delhi's chase got off to a disastrous start when Sanju Samson was dismissed by Avesh Khan's second ball. In the end, DD only ran RCB close because of later-order hitting from Shami (21 from 9 balls, 3 sixes).

Now Pant Joined Iyer to win the game for DD but again they were losing wickets in 12 over Harshal Patel picked up 2 wickets backto back picking up Iyer for 32 and Samuels for a duck. Travis Head (2/30) and Shane Watson (1/16) too chipped in with wickets.

They were without Mitchell Starc once again - the left-arm fast bowler opted out citing a busy Australia season - and seriously missed KL Rahul the batsman and wicketkeeper who was ruled out with injury, but what hurt RCB the most were the failures of the same men who carried them past year: Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers, Shane Watson, Yuzvendra Chahal and the skipper, Virat Kohli.
