Talking about the match on Tuesday, Royal Challengers Bangalore rode on an AB de Villiers special and a solid final over from Mohammad Siraj to inflict a one-run defeat on Delhi Capitals in the IPL on Tuesday. The ever-reliable de Villiers scored an unbeaten 42-ball 75 to power RCB to 171 for five before their bowlers, led by Harshal Patel – 2/37, Mohammed Siraj – 1/44 – Kyle Jamieson – 1/32, restricted Delhi to 170 for four. Needing 14 off the final over, Delhi fell agonizingly short as Rishabh Pant’s back-to-back fours off the remaining two balls did not prove to be enough. Shimron Hetmyer – 53 not out off 25 balls – displayed some sensational hitting while batting alongside Pant – 58 not out off 48 balls – but they could not take their team over the line.
