IPL-2023: Delhi Capitals beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by 7 wickets
In IPL Cricket, Delhi Capitals beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by seven wickets at Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. Chasing a victory target of 182 runs last night, Delhi Capitals made 187 runs for the loss of 3 wickets in 16.4 overs with the help of explosive knocks from Philip Salt and Rilee Rossouw.
Philip Salt made 87 runs while Rilee Rossouw scored unbeaten 35. Philip Salt was declared Player of the Match. Batting first, Royal Challengers Bangalore made 181 for 4 in stipulated 20 overs with 55 by Virat Kohli and 54 by Mahipal Lomror.
Phil Salt’s intense 45-ball 87 proved too hot for RCB in the chase, as Delhi Capitals romped home to their fourth win in five outings, with a rather comfortable chase.
Barely any. Salt came out swinging right from the powerplay. He took out RCB’s best bowler in that period, Mohammad Siraj, smacking him for 6, 6 and 4 and rattling him early. That momentum never abated right through. He was lucky to have been dropped by Dinesh Karthik on 10 off Wanindu Hasaranga, but that apart, the innings was nearly flawless. His hitting was clinical, as he picked lengths early and got the rub of the green as the dew set in.
