The ever-reliable de Villiers scored an unbeaten 42-ball 75 to power RCB to 171 for five before their bowlers, led by Harshal Patel (2/37), Mohammed Siraj (1/44) Kyle Jamieson (1/32), restricted Delhi to 170 for four.

Needing 14 off the final over, Delhi fell agonisingly short as Rishabh Pant's back-to-back fours off the remaining two balls did not prove to be enough.

Shimron Hetmyer (53 not out off 25) displayed some sensational hitting while batting alongside Pant (58 not out off 48) but they could not take their team over the line.

The victory propelled RCB to the top of the table while the Capitals slipped to the third spot.

Chasing 172, the Capitals were reduced to 28 for two in 3.3 overs as all-rounder Kyle Jamieson and Siraj and sent Shikhar Dhawan (6) and Steve Smith (4) packing respectively.

Just when it looked young Prithvi Shaw (21) and Pant, who survived a leg before scare on 9, were navigating their way, Patel, the tournament's leading wicket-taker, struck, getting rid of the former with the Capitals managing 43/2 in the first six overs.

As boundaries dried up, Pant and new-batsman Marcus Stoinis (22) kept the scoreboard ticking by taking singles and doubles on offer.

With the required run rate increasing both batsmen indulged in shot making. Stoinis took on Washington Sundar in the 12th over, hitting two fours while Pant smashed Patel for back-to-back boundaries in the next over.

However, an edge resulted in the Australian all-rounder walking back to the dug out as wickets continued to tumble at regular intervals.

The big-hitting Hetmyer joined his skipper in the middle. The West Indian was dropped on 15 by Devdutt Padikkal.

With the Capitals needing 46 of the last three overs. The Men in blue plundered 21 runs that included three massive sixes by Hetmyer in the 18th over bowled by Jamiseon but it wasn't meant to be.

Earlier, Delhi bowlers -- Ishant Sharma (1/26), Axar Patel (1/33), Kagiso Rabada (1/38), Amit Mishra (1/27), Avesh Khan (1/24) -- who all picked one wicket apiece, put up a collective effort to restrict RCB.

De Villiers, who hit three fours and five sixes, was the top scorer for RCB.

Win the toss and bowl first wicket as dew settles in during the night


Here's what Pieterson said about today's pitch

Last night it (the pitch) started slow. Later in the game the dew factor is an issue. I think it will play a big role in what happens at the toss. The winning captain is probably going to say we will bowl.

RCB team news: Bowling department

The RCB bowlers will have to forget the hammering received at the hands of the CSK batters, especially league's leading wicket-taker Harshal Patel, who was taken apart by Ravindra Jadeja, as he conceded 37 runs in his final over.
 
Pacers Mohammed Siraj and Kyle Jamieson will have to step up and deliver while spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar, will also have to bowl tightly to contain a strong DC batting-line, full of hard-hitters.
 
RCB could also be tempted to play left-arm tweaker Shahbaz Ahmed in place of either Navdeep Saini or Dan Christian, as the track could be conducive for the spinners.
 

Player Battle: Amit Mishra vs Glenn Maxwell

Amit Mishra has get rid of Glenn Maxwell four times in IPL history. However, if Maxwell survives against Mishra, he could really go hammer and togs as the Mishra  has an economy rate of 11.38 against him.


RCB team news: Batting department

RCB will need to address their middle-order woes, to return to winning ways, in what could be touted as a battle of equals.
 
For the RCB, it will be important that the openers- the in-form Devdutt Padikkal (171 runs) and Kohli (151 runs)- continue to provide a solid start at the Narendra Modi stadium.
 
But the opening duo would need the much-needed support from the middle-order, which crumbled against CSK.
 
The likes of Glenn Maxwell (198 runs), Ab de Villiers (129 runs), and the misfiring all-rounder Washington Sundar (25 runs), will have to perform in unison against a strong Delhi attack.
 
Australian Maxwell did justify his high price tag in the first few matches and would be raring to go once again.
 

BCCI assures safe return to foreign players; Aus suspends flights from India

The BCCI stepped in to assuage apprehensions of foreign cricketers, especially Australians, at the IPL as a second wave of COVID-19 infections battered India, prompting the government Down Under to suspend air travel with the country besides asking players to make their "own arrangements" for return.
 
The fear of being locked out of their own nation drove the likes of Andrew Tye to take an early flight back to Australia while Kane Richardson and Adam Zampa also exited their franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore's bio-bubble on Monday.
 
A day later, Australia announced that it was suspending air travel to and from India till May 15 amid the swirling COVID-19 cases. The BCCI wrote to the foreign players telling them that their safe return home will be its responsibility once the tournament ends on May 30.
 
"We understand that many of you are apprehensive about how you will get back home once the tournament concludes... We want to apprise you that you have nothing to worry about," BCCI COO Hemang Amin said in a letter addressed to the players.
 
"The BCCI will do everything to ensure that you reach your respective destinations seamlessely. The BCCI is monitoring the situation very closely and is working with the government authorities to make arrangements to get you home once the tournament concludes.
 
"Be rest assured that the tournament is not over for BCCI till each one of you has reached your home, safe and sound," he added.

IPL 2021, Match 22, RCB vs DC preview

Fresh from their victory over SunRisers Hyderabad in the Super Over on Sunday night, Delhi Capitals (DC) will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Narendra Modi Stadium.
 
Both teams are on eight points, with DC just above RCB in second place thanks to better net run rate (NRR). RCB's NRR took a dip after Sunday's afternoon match that saw them succumb to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 69 runs for their first loss of this season.
 
Prior to the loss to CSK, RCB had won all their four matches. While their middle-order boasts of big-hitters like Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers, their openers Devdutt Padikkal and skipper Virat Kohli have recently struck form.
 
Padikkal, who scored a century against Rajasthan Royals on Thursday, continued his good form on Sunday although it was cut short. His departure saw RCB lose track.
 
DC, who saw the return of Axar Patel on Sunday after the left-arm spinner recovered from a bout of Covid-19, will miss their ace off-spinner R Ashwin who left for home after Sunday's game since he wants to be with his family during the Covid-19 pandemic.
 
While Ashwin said he could return later, DC don't have much worries since the spin duo Amit Mishra and Patel look in form.
 
Both did well against SRH, conceding 57 runs in their eight overs, and picking three wickets.
 
It will be interesting to see how Kagiso Rabada & Co bowl to the likes of Maxwell and de Villiers who have played quickfire knocks. DC bowlers' battle with these two RCB hard-hitters as well as opener Padikkal could well decide the course of the match.
 
DC's top order looks settled and strong. RCB pace bowler Harshal Patel, who is the leading wickettaker in the tournament, will have to regain confidence after his last over on Sunday cost 37 runs as Ravindra Jadeja smashed him for five sixes and a four.
