RCB have now lost all their six matches in this year’s IPL, as they remained at the foot of the points table, while Delhi bounced back after losing their last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Chasing a modest 150 for victory, Delhi always had the measure of the game and eventually won with seven balls to spare.
