Delhi Capitals roared to a massive 59-run victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore in the ongoing Indian Premier League, proving yet again that they are the team to beat this season. Chasing 197, RCB could manage only 137/9 in their allotted 20 overs.
The Shreyas Iyer-led outfit top the table with eight points from five games.
"I think they got off to a great start in the first six then we pulled it back in the next 8 overs and the last phase again got away from us. Those important chances in between we need to grab when the opportunity comes our way, it is not like we are dropping half chances, we are dropping sitters and those things hurt you. The execution with the ball towards the end could have been better and with the bat as well. Not a complete performance in any regard today. We were quite aggressive with the new ball, Prithvi (Shaw) and Shkihar (Dhawan) batted really well. I think Prithvi took the game on and we expected that, we kept a catching position and even tried to pick a wicket with the spinner. We got into the game after the first six and then (Marcus) Stoinis batted really well in the end, we gave him a life, he took the game away from us. The good thing is we have won three out of five, we have lost two where we haven't played good cricket, so I think it is about rectifying those small mistakes."
-Virat Kohli, RCB skipper
