Match 22: DC vs RCB

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) made a grand victory over Delhi Capitals (DC) in Match 22 of the VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Tuesday.

AB de Villiers scored a match-winning 75* that instigated RCB to make a noteworthy total before the bowlers defended the target in a final-over thriller. With chasing a challenging total of 171, DC openers, Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan made a swift start, scoring 22 off the first two overs after Shaw, backed by his wonderful timing, smashed three fours off Mohammed Siraj.

Further, RCB capitalised on the two early wickets and put a little pressure on the DC pair with dot balls. Harshal Patel bowled the eighth over and he managed to dismiss Shaw, who tried to chase a wide delivery outside off stumps and edged it to de Villiers behind the stumps.

DC, on the other hand, scored 11 in the penultimate over after Pant got a timely four and DC required 14 off the final over. RCB scored 11 off the next over after Patidar knocked Mishra for a six down the ground. Finally, de Villiers scored 23 runs off the last over bowled by Stonis hitting 3 sixes in 3 separate parts of the ground thus enabling RCB to make a victory.
