After their horror start to the campaign, Delhi Capitals are on a roll now and recorded their 4th win in the last 5 matches and now find themselves in the running for a playoffs spot.
The David Warner led side today beat the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the match number 50 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023.
After winning the toss, the visiting team Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Faf du Plessis decided to bat first.
Both Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis gave RCB a fantastic start. The duo added 82 runs for the opening wicket. However, constant wickets got them into a trouble.
However, a brilliant inning in the end from Mahipal Lomror, scored 54 runs in 29 balls, helped RCB post 181 runs on the board.
Chasing the target, Delhi Capitals openers David Warner and Phil Salt got off to a cracking start as they scored 60 runs in 5 overs before captain Warner was dismissed.
Phil Salt went on to score 87 runs in 45 balls and was well supported by Mitchell Marsh and Rilee Rossouw as Delhi Capitals register a comfortable win at home to register their 4th win of the campaign. See how Twitterati reacted.
