Delhi Capitals nosedive to fifth straight loss in IPL 2023

Delhi Capitals crashed to their fifth defeat on the bounce in Indian Premier League 2023. Unsurprisingly, they are dwelling at rock bottom of the points table, with an abysmal NRR.

We recap some interesting moments of the clash between DC and Royal Challengers Bangalore:

Kuldeep Yadav dismissed both Glenn Maxwell and Dinesh Karthik in an over to thwart the progress of Royal Challengers Bangalore, with Lalit Yadav taking a good low catch in the deep as the latter pulled a short ball flat and hard. Speaking of fielding exploits, Anuj Rawat’s effort took the cake as he ran out Prithvi Shaw in spectacular fashion.

Shaw has endured a poor run of form in the ongoing edition of the IPL, and the opener’s woes continued on Saturday. He was dismissed for a duck in the first over of the Delhi Capitals’ innings, with a brilliant piece of fielding from Rawat spelling his doom. Shaw had stabbed a Mohammed Siraj delivery to the right of cover with ordinary timing and went for a single straightaway but Rawat moved swiftly to his right, pulled off a dive, got hold of the ball and threw it off-balance to bring the stumps down at the non striker’s end. Shaw was well behind his crease as the zing bails lit up.
