Delhi Daredevils crushed a formidable Royal Challengers Bangalore by 37 runs at the Feroz Shah Kotla. The unsung Paul Collingwood came to the rescue of the hosts with an unbeaten 75 from 46 balls (with 3 fours and 7 sixes). RCB at one stage had Delhi in trouble at 90 for 4 in the 11th over but released all the pressure by feeding Collingwood with long hops.
RCB in their chase never got any momentum in the first ten overs. They left too many runs to get in the final overs and almost batted themselves out of the match. Ross Taylor tried his best to repair the situation with three sixes but couldn’t score more than 22 runs. Kallis was the top scorer with 54 but took 42 balls for that. Amit Mishra and Pradeep Sangwan had a good day with the ball taking three wickets each for Daredevils.
