Despite Rishabh Pant's four off the last ball, RCB managed to claim their fifth win of the tournament that takes them to the top of the IPL points table in 2021. For Delhi Capitals, they slump to the third spot after DC vs RCB Yesterday IPL Match result didn't go in their favor.
Batting first, RCB was down in the dumps before AB De Villiers was their rescue man for the umpteenth time in his IPL career. His 42-ball 75 lifted them to a score of 171/5. Delhi, despite stumbling in the middle-overs, could nearly see the win until a decent RCB bowling effort proved too good for Pant and co. to cross the line.
Delhi bowlers keep RCB in check before AB De Villiers goes berserk
After being asked to bat first, RCB started poorly, losing both their openers inside the powerplay. It wasn't too late before Glenn Maxwell was also dismissed with the scoreboard reading only 60 runs in the 8th over. Rajat Patidar, along with AB De Villiers, got together for a steady partnership that helped them cross the 100-run mark.
However, in the last few overs, it was a De Villiers special, as Mr.360 unleashed himself to hammer the Delhi bowlers to all parts of the ground. Skipper Rishabh Pant took a major gamble as he chose Marcus Stoinis to bowl the 20th over, which eventually had a great significance in the context of the game. Stonis conceded 23 off the final over as RCB reached 171 runs in their 20 overs.

It was an aberration at the top of the order for Delhi Capitals as the opening duo of Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw failed to dominate the first six overs in yesterday's DC vs RCB IPL match. Dhawan was dismissed early, soon followed by the dismissal of Steven Smith. While Shaw and Rishabh Pant were beginning to stitch a partnership, the former was caught behind as Harshal Patel accounted for his wicket.
Marcus Stoinis, after playing a few delightful strokes succumbed to an innocuous delivery from Patel. Eventually, it was down to the pair of Pant and Shimron Hetmyer to take Delhi with an ever-increasing asking run rate. While Pant was finding it tough with his timing, Hetmyer turned the heat on with his quickfire fifty off just 23 balls. With 14 required off the final over, Delhi could only manage 12 with fours off the last two successive deliveries. The DC vs RCB Yesterday IPL match result went in RCB's favor by a margin of 1 run.
