The Royal Challengers Bengaluru continued their dream run, extending their winning streak to a record fifth match where they trounced the Delhi Capitals emphatically. RCB’s captain, Faf du Plessis couldn’t contribute much with the bat but was once again electric in the field as he claimed a stunning catch to dismiss Axar Patel.

Talking at the post-match presentation, du Plessis underscored the fact what the win meant for RCB and he also shed some light on the conditions and the players who had a gigantic role in clinching the game for the hosts.

Faf said, “Brilliant, we put some good performances and really pleased. 1st half of the season, things didn't quite come together and from that batting perspective and bowling perspective we have been able to put it together now.”

Heaping praises on Swapnil Singh who got rid of David Warner up front, the skipper added, “Sometimes people talk about match-ups and all, but as a left hander with the ball spinning in, you hope that works out sometimes and Swapnil’s done brilliantly for us.”

He concluded by saying, “Lot of work has gone behind the scenes, and we are getting it right and I feel there is a lot more variety in our bowling now and Yash and Lockie have been exceptional the last few games. We wanna play a style of cricket, to be bold and put some performances together and keep going.”
