Kagiso Rabada scalped four wickets as Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi Capitals (DC) restricted Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) to 149/8 in the 20th match of the Indian Premier League(IPL) 2019 at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Sunday. (IPL 2019, RCB vs DC: FOLLOW LATEST UPDATES)

Chris Morris struck early as he dismissed Parthiv Patel in the second over to give DC their first breakthrough. In came AB de Villiers. The former South African skipper set the ball rolling with a six on the eight ball he faced.

While he had a lucky escape after DC missed out on a chance to run him put, AB de Villiers could only score 17 as Kagiso Rabada’s slower one done him in. Marcus Stoinis was the next man to get out as Axar Patel dismissed the Australian allrounder for 15 in the 11th over to keep RCB in check. (ALSO READ: RCB determined to throw the kitchen sink for a desperate win against DC)

Moeen Ali joined Virat Kohli in the middle and took the attack to the opposition. The left-hander hit three sixes and a fours to race to 32 in 17 balls. However, as RCB were struggling for runs, Moeen ended up playing a shot too many and Sandeep Lamichhane got him out stumped in the 15th over.

While Kohli, who struggled to get strike on consistently, played a couple of big shots off the Nepal legspinner, Rabada struck in the 18th over to dismiss the RCB skipper for 41, and then scalped two more wickets – Akshdeep Nath and Pawan Negi – in the same over to sink RCB further.

Brief scores: Royal Challengers Bangalore 149/8 (Virat Kohli 41, Moeen Ali 32; Kagiso Rabada 4/21) vs Delhi Capitals
