IPL 2022: Points Table Update, Latest Orange Cap, Purple Cap Lists After DC vs RCB Match 27
IPL 2022: Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore registered wins on Saturday to go level on points with table-toppers Gujarat Titans.
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Saturday beat Delhi Capitals by 16 runs despite getting off to a rocky start with the bat in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 encounter. A counter-attacking half-century from Glenn Maxwell and a blinder to finish things off by Dinesh Karthik powered them to 189/5 and then Josh Hazlewood, Mohammed Siraj and Wanindu Hasaranga helped them restrict the Rishabh Pant-led side to 173/7. Maxwell scored 55 off 34, while Karthik finished unbeaten on 66 off as 34. Warner hit a brilliant 38-ball 66 in Delhi's chase, but the team crumbled after his wicket, despite a fighting effort from captain Pant (34 off 17).
Earlier in the day, Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) skipper KL Rahul scored a magnificent 103* to flatten Mumbai Indians, who slumped to their sixth consecutive defeat this season.
