Royal Challengers Bangalore outshined Delhi Daredevils as the visitors achieved a win by five wickets and six balls to spare, at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi on May 12, 2018.

Both the teams made a few changes going into this match, as the RCB captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bowl first. Yuzvendra Chahal picked up the wickets of Prithwi Shaw and Jason Roy to leave Delhi at 16-2 in the powerplay.

Rishabh Pant along with DD's captain Iyer kept the score moving before they lost Pant after another good knock. He made 61 runs from 34 balls, and at the point of his dismissal, Delhi was at 109-3 in 13 overs.

Then it was a complete show as the debutant and all-rounder Abhishek Sharma hampered the Bangalore bowling attack in the death overs. His aggressive knock of 46 runs from 19 balls, helped Delhi to reach the score of 181-4 in 20 overs. Chahal's figures of 2-28 in 4 overs was the highlight of the bowling by RCB.

Bangalore's innings began in the same fashion as Delhi's earlier. They lost both their openers, Parthiv and Moeen Ali, under three overs and were at 18-2. After this, the captain of Bangalore and Delhi boy Kohli played an outstanding inning of 70 runs from just 40 balls to make sure Bangalore have no more hiccups during his chase.

But then, he got out with the score still at 136-3 after 13.2 overs.

Another wicket of Mandeep Singh meant Delhi were back in the game. It was a calm and collective knock of 72 runs off 37 balls by AB de Villiers which guided RCB to the stiff target successfully. For Delhi, Trent Boult bowled the best with figures of 2 for 40 in four overs.

Young Nepali spinner Sandeep Lamichhane gave just 25 runs in four overs and picked up the wicket of Parthiv Patel. Ab de Villiers received the Man of the Match award for his batting brilliance.

The win means Kohli's men stay alive in this competition, but they need to win all of their last three games as they are still at the seventh position after their fourth win this season from eleven games.

Daredevils will stay back in Delhi to face Chennai on May 18 while RCB will go to Indore to face Kings XI Punjab on May 14.
