Pin It



A B de Villiers and Muttiah Muralitharan starred with the bat and ball respectively as Royal Challengers Bangalore posted a 20-run victory over Delhi Daredevils to start their campaign in the 5th edition of Indian Premier League on a winning note.

Chasing 158 for victory, the Daredevils were restricted to 137 for seven with Muralitharan clinching three for 25, after De Villiers set it up with a blazing 64 off 42 balls. De Villiers hit six fours and two sixes in an innings that gave Bangalore the platform.

Delhi were off to a flyer with Aaron Finch (25 off 24) hitting Zaheer Khan for three boundaries through the off-side in the very first over before skipper Virender Sehwag offered a simple catch to Cheteshwar Pujara at covers off  Zaheer Khan’s delivery.

Earlier, RCB could have been in deep trouble without South Africa smasher AB de villiers.

Delhi’s star bowler Irfan Pathan was a massive flop as he conceded 47 runs — 23 of them in his first spell of two overs, punished by both McDonald and de Villiers.

Umesh Yadav was the most economical Delhi bowler but went wicketless in his two overs that cost just eight runs.

Long way to go Bangalore. Can you do this time!!
