The 55th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) was played between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals. The fight was intense as the second spot in the points tally was up for grabs. However, DC sealed second place after thumping RCB by six wickets. Batting first, RCB could post only 152 runs on the board. The young and consistent player from their end, Devdutt Padikkal batted well again as he produced a sublime half-century (50 off 41) to keep the team sailing in the crucial situation.

Ajinkya Rahane shone at the perfect time for DC

Chasing the target, two half-centuries from Delhi’s batting unit defined their innings. Ajinkya Rahane shined for the first time and just on the perfect occasion by smashing 60 off 46. Shikhar Dhawan’s 54 off 41 were too essential in building the chase for DC. Shahbaz Ahmed picked two wickets for RCB.
