This was RCB’s fifth win in six matches and put them back on top of the points table after a huge loss to Chennai Super Kings in their previous match had displaced them from the top spot. Delhi Capitals, who are third after their second loss in six games, had their backs to the wall at 92 for four in 12.4 overs. However, Hetmyer turned it on and added 78 runs in 44 balls with skipper Rishabh Pant – 58 not out off 48 balls – to take the team within striking distance of victory. Needing 46 from 18 balls, Hetmyer scored 20 out of 21 runs in the 17th over bowled by Kyle Jamieson – who bowled the 18th – to bring the equation down to 25 off two overs. Harshal Patel conceded 11 and Mohammed Siraj conceded 12 to win the game for RCB. Siraj began the last over well, bowling a couple of yorkers to Pant. However, he conceded two boundaries on the last two balls. That left DC still one run short..

    DC vs RCB IPL 2021 Live Score Online: Chasing 173, Delhi did not get off to a good start as Dhawan and Smith both departed in the Powerplay. Shaw was looking good but failed to convert his start. Stoinis too failed to kick off after getting a start. With 81 needed off 44 balls, it looked like Delhi were out of it. Pant was struggling to time the ball and Hetmyer hadn’t batted much this season. Hetmyer though came back to haunt his former side. His 53 off 25 almost snatched the victory from Bangalore but Pant, unfortunately, could not do the job in the final over as Delhi failed by just a mere run.
