IPL: Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Delhi Daredevils by five wickets

Kings XI Punjab vs Royal Challengers Bangalore is the 48th of 60 matches to be played in this edition.

Punjab lost three of their lower order wickets to run-outs, starting with skipper Ravi Ashwin who went for a suicidal single on the first ball he faced from Moeen Ali. His aggressive knock of 46 runs from 19 balls, helped Delhi to reach the score of 181-4 in 20 overs.

In the ninth over, Colin de Grandhomme got the better of Mayank Agarwal (2) to leave the hosts in all sorts of trouble.

However in IPL, unusual things have happened at the business end of the tournament and RCB, under Virat Kohli, are likely to put a lot of pressure on the slipping KXIP.

WICKET! Prithvi Shaw hangs on to take a spectacular catch as Harshal Patel dismisses Sarfaraz Khan for 11.

It is nearly unbelievable how Virat Kohli has managed to fly under the radar in this IPL. When he came on to bowl, it was Mayank Aggarwal and Aaron Finch still on the crease and KXIP rest their hopes on them for a revival. Will tjhe captain lead RCB to glory? In reply, KL Rahul continued his fine form with a third consecutive fifty - smashing 66 from 29 balls - but it wasn't enough to lift the team up anywhere near the steep target as they slipped to another defeat.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore faced the Delhi Daredevils at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Saturday.

AB de Villiers, who averages over 50 this season, much like Virat Kohli has been another important cog in the RCB batting line-up. In the next over, Mohammed Siraj dug one in outside off and coaxed an outside edge from Karun Nair to leave Kings XI at 41 for 3 in the sixth over. With the brilliant half-centuries of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, Bangalore chased easily against Delhi Daredevils. 12 runs scored off the over. Has DD's collapse already begun? Yuzvendra Chahal picked up the wickets of Prithwi Shaw and Jason Roy to leave Delhi at 16-2 in the powerplay. So, it seems that CSK won both times against RCB in the season.

The three Americans released Wednesday were scheduled to depart Andrews for Walter Reed medical center for further evaluation. The president and first lady boarded the plane, while the Pences and Pompeo waited on the tarmac.

Both teams have made changes. RCB is placed at second last spot in the tournament.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) recorded a consecutive victory, in Indore on Tuesday, as captain Virat Kohli summed it up as a ideal game in what has been "a really crazy" week for his team.

The Challengers have been eliminated from the tournament, but they can still spoil the party for a few teams. Tie against RCB will be crucial as they are next to face Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals respectively.

Back-to-back wins for the first time in two seasons has given RCB's quest for a maiden IPL title a fresh lease of life, albeit them needing other results to go their way. So, Chennai Super Kings won by 6 wickets against RCB.

Punjab win. RCB have been far too patchy this season and look unlikely to defeat a Punjab with a objective.

The victor in this match would have a slight chance of quailifying, whereas the loser's stay in the tournament would all but be over.

The match is scheduled to start at 8 P.M. IST on Tuesday, May 14th. The match was took place in 5th May, 2018 which was a day/ night competition.
