IPL 2021 Points Table, Orange Cap and Purple Cap Latest Table Today: DC in second spot after win over SRH

On Sunday, we witnessed the season’s first Super Over match. The game between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi Capitals in Chennai ended in a tie and Rishabh Pant’s team clinched the match in the Super Over.

Batting first, Delhi Capitals made 159-4 on a challenging track. Prithvi Shaw got off to a great start and made 53 off just 39 balls. Rishabh Pant and Steve Smith also played valuable knocks to help Delhi post a good total.

David Warner didn’t make much impact but Jonny Bairstow gave a solid start to his team. He fell after scoring 38 and then Kane Williamson took charge of the chase. The going became tough but Williamson fought hard – 66 off 51 and J Suchith’s quickfire 14 off six balls ensured Hyderabad tie the game. In the Super Over, Williamson and Warner scored eight and in reply, Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan won the game in the last ball.

In the other match on Sunday, Chennai Super Kings defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by 69 runs on Sunday and moved to the top of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 points table on the basis of a superior run rate.

It was RCB’s first defeat in the ongoing edition, after four successive victories. CSK are currently on a four-match winning streak.

After winning the toss, MS Dhoni’s CSK scored 191 with Ravindra Jadeja scoring a blistering 62 off 28. He amassed 37 runs in the final over of CSK’s innings. Faf du Plessis also scored 50 off 41.

In reply, RCB were restricted at 122 for 9 in 20 overs.

Virat Kohli and Devdutt Padikkal gave RCB a flying start but CSK quickly pulled back things with Sam Curran dismissing the RCB captain and Shardul Thakur removing the other opener.

Jadeja was the wrecker-in-chief with the ball as well and finished with excellent figures of 3/13 in four overs, including taking the big scalps of AB de Villiers and Glenn Maxwell.
