Chasing 150 for victory in their IPL 2019 match against Royal Challengers Bangalore at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Delhi Capitals rode on skipper Shreyas Iyer's 50-ball 67 to get to victory with 7 balls to spare. Winning the toss, DC skipper Shreyas Iyer opted to bowl first. Scoring looked difficult for the Royal Challengers Bangalore batsmen throughout, as the away team kept picking regular wickets. Virat Kohli, in an unusual display, got most of his runs in singles, as he kept losing partners on the other end. Moeen Ali (32) gave some impetus to the RCB innings. Kohli almost came to life after Moeen Ali's onslaught, hitting two consecutive sixes. However, devastatingly for the home crowd, Kohli fell for 41. Kagiso Rabada was the star of the show, devastating RCB with three wickets in the 18th over. Despite Shikhar Dhawan's early wicket in the chase, RCB could not make regular inroads as Prithvi Shaw and Shreyas Iyer consolidated the innings. There was a rush of wickets towards the end, but it was too little too late as the Delhi Capitals lower order held their nerves to take their team to victory. RCB, now having lost six consecutive matches, are stuck at the bottom of the table with 0 points. DC, now having won three matches in six, are now at fifth position on the table. (SCORECARD)

    Hope springs eternal

  • 19:16 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Pant out!

    Finally, Kohli has a smile on his face. Siraj gets the wicket. Wickets falling in a hurry. But surely, surely, this is too late! DC need 3 runs to win. 10 balls left.
  • 19:15 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Navdeep Saini has had a good day

    2/24 from his four overs. Navdeep Saini occasionaly drifted too far on the leg side with his length today, but has turned in a good shift.
  • 19:14 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Morris out!

    Chris Morris is caught off Navdeep Saini's bowling. Two consecutive dot balls and the pressure told on him. Could we be in for a special comeback today? DC 145/5 after 18 overs. Need just 5 more runs to win.
  • 19:12 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Iyer departs

    Too little too late for RCB though. DC need 5 more runs in 15 balls. Iyer goes for a 50-ball 67. Great knock for the captain.
  • 19:08 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Six! Slammed by Iyer over covers

    DC 144/3 after 17 overs. Need only 6 more runs. Shreyas Iyer has played a true captain's innings today.
  • 19:06 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Slashed through the off side for four by Pant

    This is too easy for Delhi Capitals. Finding gaps where there shouldn't be any. DC need 13 runs off 22 balls.
  • 19:05 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

  • 19:03 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    DC 131/3 after 16 overs

    So, we head into the last timeout of the match with RCB needing a miracle. Wonder where we heard that one before! DC need 19 runs in 24 balls. Pant and Iyer going strong.
  • 19:01 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Four for Pant

    A strange shot from Rishabh Pant manages to find its way across the ropes as well. Nothing going right for RCB.
  • 19:00 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    DC 123/3 after 15 overs

    Another over which leaked more runs than RCB wanted. DC need 27 runs off the last 5 overs.
  • 18:58 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Four for Iyer again

    Bad effort in the field by Siraj sees another four. This is becoming too easy for Delhi Capitals. Need 29 off 33 now.
  • 18:56 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

  • 18:54 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    DC 114/3 after 14 overs

    Pant and Iyer are in the middle. Barring an implosion, this should be easy for the visitors. Need 36 off 36 balls.
  • 18:53 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Fifty for Shreyas Iyer

    Excellent innings from Shreyas Iyer. He will know the job is not yet over though. Need 39 runs in 39 balls.
  • 18:51 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Moeen Ali gets the breakthrough

    Colin Ingram miscues a sweep. Moeen Ali gets him out lbw. Finally a breakthrough for RCB. DC now three down for 108. Rishabh Pant the new man in for Delhi.
  • 18:50 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Iyer cuts for four again

    This match is getting out of RCB's grasp too. DC 108/2 after 13 overs. Need 42 in 42 balls now.
  • 18:46 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Four for Ingram

    Chahal bowls the 13th over. Poor fielding effort at the boundary again. That four could have been cut off.
  • 18:45 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    DC 96/2 after 12 overs

    Excellent over from Moeen Ali. 2 runs off it. Four consecutive dot balls faced by Ingram in that over.
  • 18:43 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Four more for Ingram

    Negi bowling too short and too wide. 14 runs off that over. DC 94/2 after 11 overs. 
  • 18:41 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Six! Colin Ingram

    That's some serious bat speed! Fielders watch on helplessly.
  • 18:40 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Iyer survives!

    Negi draws a top edge from Iyer. That stayed up in the air for a long time. Parthiv Patel can't get there. Negi buries his face in his hands. RCB need to take these half-chances!
  • 18:38 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Four for Iyer again

    Deftly played over the keeper's head for four by Iyer. Responsible innings from the captain here. DC 80/2 after 10 overs.
  • 18:37 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Moeen Ali into the attack

    Starts off with three dot balls. The pressure could quickly shift on to the visitors here.
  • 18:35 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Iyer cuts for four again

    The Delhi captain has been playing the cut shot to perfection today. Negi the victim this time. DC 74/2 after 9 overs.
  • 18:34 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Colin Ingram comes in at No.4

    Ingram sent ahead of Rishabh Pant today. You can see the thinking behind this move. We could be set for a tight finish if RCB bowlers can keep it tight in the next few overs.
  • 18:32 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Prithvi Shaw is out!

    RCB get their second wicket! Negi gets his man. Prithvi Shaw caught in the deep. Not as well timed as some of his previous shots today. Goes for a 21-ball 28. DC 69/2.
  • 18:30 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    DC 68/1 after 8 overs
  • 18:30 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Vaughan likes how Prithvi Shaw is going

  • 18:28 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Iyer cuts for four

    Excellent timing and placement from the Delhi captain again. DC 67/1 after 7.3 overs
  • 18:28 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Siraj is bowling the 8th over

    Faced a lot of criticism after the last match. Can Siraj make amends today?
  • 18:27 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

  • 18:26 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    DC 61/1 after 7 overs

    Negi goes for 8 in his over. RCB need a wicket and they need it quickly.
  • 18:24 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Four! Iyer

    No he can't. Not immediately at least. Iyer hits it to fine leg for four.
  • 18:24 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Pawan Negi into the attack

    Negi got a lot of turn for RCB last day. Can Pawan Negi turn RCB's luck today?
  • 18:21 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    DC 53/1 after 6 overs

    Five dot balls to follow up on that first-ball six. Chahal has gone for 11 runs in his 2 overs. Iyer and Prithvi Shaw still in the middle.
  • 18:19 (IST)Apr 07, 2019

    Six! Iyer smashes Chahal

    That went high and far.
