IPL 2021 Points Table: Virat Kohli’s RCB on top with hat-trick of wins, DC in second place

IPL 2021 Points Table Today Latest, DC vs PBKS 2021 Prediction: Glenn Maxwell was good but AB de Villiers was better as Royal Challengers Bangalore bested Kolkata Knight Riders by 38 runs in IPL match No. 10 in Chennai on Sunday (April 18). Batting first, De Villiers’s masterclass and Maxwell’s counter-attacking half-century propelled RCB to an imposing 204 for four.

In reply, KKR were stopped at 166 for eight. Courtesy of the victory over Kolkata, RCB regained the top spot in the IPL 2021 points table. On the other hand, in the second match on Sunday – Shikhar Dhawan struck a swashbuckling 92 as Delhi Capitals made short work of a 196-run target for a six-wicket win over Punjab Kings at the Wankhede Stadium.

Dhawan looked in sublime form during his 49-ball knock that was studded with 13 fours and two sixes. Dhawan was ably supported by Prithvi Shaw – 32 runs off 15 balls – first up and then skipper Rishabh Pant (15)  and Marcus Stoinis (27 not out) – as DC chased down 196 in 18.2 overs.

In the first game on Sunday, RCB smashed 56 runs in the last three overs, including 21 in the final six deliveries, thanks to de Villiers 34-ball 76 not out. Maxwell blazed away to 78 off 49 deliveries, hitting nine boundaries and three maximums before the genius from South Africa strode in and struck the same number of fours and sixes as his teammate from Australia. Maxwell has taken his new team to ‘like duck to water’ and de Villiers’ ‘love’ for the franchise too has helped in putting Royal Challengers Bangalore on the right track this season, captain Virat Kohli said after the win over KKR.
