Delhi’s position in every IPL edition:
First: 2009, 2012
Sixth: 2016, 2017
Eighth: 2014, 2018
Despite finishing first in 2008 and 2012, Capitals (Daredevils then) had failed to lay their hands on the elusive IPL trophy. The Shreyas Iyer-led side will be eyeing their maiden title this season. Talking about the DC-RCB encounter, Devdutt Padikkal was the star in the first innings after slamming a vital half-century. He scored 50 off 41 to guide his side to a respectable total.
However, Anrich Nortje struck twice in the 16th over to dismiss Padikkal and Chris Morris. He finished with figures of 3/33 in his four overs before the Dhawan-Rahane duo finished the job in the second innings. Meanwhile, Kohli’s men also booked playoffs berth after DC took more than 17.3 overs to hunt down the total.
