Chasing a target of 182, DC rode on Phil Salt’s counter-attacking knock of 87 (45) and crossed the finishing line with 20 balls to spare. Earlier, fifties from Virat Kohli and Mahipal Lomror had propelled RCB to a decent total of 181/4 in 20 overs. The win allowed DC to move out from the foot of the points table. They now have four wins from 10 matches.
