Rabada helps Delhi rout Bangalore to top IPL table

Dubai, Monday: South African quick Kagiso Rabada claimed four wickets including Virat Kohli’s key scalp to lead Delhi Capitals to the top of Indian Premier League table on Monday.

Rabada returned figures of 4-28 and topped the IPL bowling chart with 12 wickets in five matches as Delhi outplayed Royal Challengers Bangalore by 59 runs in Dubai.

Australia’s Marcus Stoinis smashed an unbeaten 53 to guide Delhi to 196 for four, a total Rabada and company defended by restricting the Kohli-led Bangalore to 137 for nine. Left-arm spinner Axar Patel took two wickets and gave away just 18 runs from his four overs and paceman Anrich Nortje also struck twice. “I don’t really plan to get wickets, you can only control in which areas to bowl. I think if you want to be the best you have to adjust to the conditions,” said Rabada. AFP
