IPL 2021 points table, orange cap and purple cap Last table today: DC moves up to second after beating PBKS

The Delhi Capitals batting department delivered a big chase as Rishabh Pant’s side beat KL Rahul’s Punjab Kings by six wickets in Game 11 of the Indian Premier League on Sunday.

Chasing 196, Delhi forerunners Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan got off to a strong start. Shaw fell after making 32 but Dhawan continued to score freely. He was sacked after a superb hit of 92 on just 49 deliveries. Marcus Stoinis played a blinder at the end to seal his team’s victory in 18.2 overs.

At bat first, KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal shared a 122-point stand for the opening wicket, but despite a strong start, Punjab failed to break through the 200-point mark.

Meanwhile, for the first time ever, the Royal Challengers Bangalore took the win in the first three games of an IPL season by securing a dominant 38-point victory over Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Game 10 of the IPL 2021. With victory over Eoin Morgan’s men, RCB remain the only undefeated team this season and retain first place in the points table.

Blows from Glenn Maxwell (78) and AB de Villiers (76 *) propelled RCB to 204-4 from 20 overs. In response, Harshal Patel (2/17) once again proved crucial in the death overs, while Kyle Jamieson (3/41) and Yuzvendra Chahal (2/34) also did wonders with the ball.
