Brilliant half-centuries from Srikar Bharat (78 not out off 52 balls) and Glenn Maxwell (51 not out off 33 balls) saw Royal Challenger Bangalore (RCB) defeat Delhi Capitals (DC) by seven wickets in match number 56 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 in Dubai on Friday.
After the Royal Challengers Banglore stumbled to 55 for 3, Bharat and Maxwell featured in an unbroken 111-run stand for the fourth wicket to take their team over the line while chasing 165 for victory. RCB were aided by some sloppy fielding from the DC players, who dropped Maxwell twice in one over.

In the end, it came down to 15 required off the last over off Avesh Khan’s. His first delivery, a slower ball, was dispatched for a boundary by Maxwell. There were a couple of good yorkers, but a misfield from Axar Patel allowed the RCB to steal an extra run.
Six off one quickly became five off one as Avesh bowled a wide down the leg side. Bharat then dispatched a thigh-high full toss over the ropes for a maximum as RCB pulled off an unlikely win.
Moreover, during the post-match interview with Prithvi Shaw, there were all laughs on the ground as Shreyas Iyer pulled off a very unexpected act while the interview was going on. He was seen throwing cold chilled water on Shaw’s pants while he was interacting with one of the commentators in the commentary box.
