Bangalore vs Delhi, Indian T20 League 2021: As it happened
Bangalore clinch a memorable seven-wicket win from the jaws of defeat against Delhi in match 56 of the Indian T20 League at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
Put to bat first, Delhi put 164 on the board with openers Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan providing a strong start of 88/0 in 10 overs. Post the dismissal of Dhawan, wickets came tumbling and so did Delhi's run rate.
Bangalore, who lost Deepak Padikkal and Virat Kohli cheaply, made a slow comeback thanks to the efforts of KS Bharat and AB de Villiers. However, the tide of the match slowly shifted towards Bangalore's favour as Bharat (78*) combined with Glenn Maxwell (51*) to get the side to requiring 15 runs off the final over.
In true MS Dhoni style, Bharat smashed the final delivery of the game for a six to propel Bangalore to their 100th win in the Indian T20 League.
