IPL 2020: Delhi Capitals And Royal Challengers Bangalore Face Off Against Each Other For Qualifiers!
IPL 2020: Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore faced off against each other in one of the most exciting matches of the 2020 league.
Ajinkya Rahane and Shikhar Dhawan got past their slump in the 2020 tournament and sealed the second spot in the IPL qualifier round at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi recently. It was a six-wicket win taken over by Delhi to make Bangalore realise its place in the league. However, it was Rahane and Dhawan who came up with an impressive 88-run partnership to take the team to victory. While RCB lost the match to DC, it did not leave the former team in any jeopardy as they have also secured their place in the playoffs qualifier.

After the recent match between the two IPL teams, the top pile of qualifiers have secured their spot and need not worry about falling out of the league. DC was given a relatively hard target of 153 runs and the team chased it down with an impressive save of six wickets and even an over to spare. Dhawan kicked off his chase of the target by hitting the ball out with four boundaries.

Later on, Dhawan and Rahane flaunted an 88-run partnership with just 65 balls. The duo scored a 41-ball 54 and 46-ball 60 respectively which allowed DC to comfortably secure the win. While DC’s batting lineup played offensively to secure their win, RCB somewhere fell short in its balling lineup, allowing the opposing team to go run their course and reach their designated goals relatively easily.
