Royal Challengers Bengaluru continued their resurgence in the IPL 2024 with their fifth consecutive victory in this year's competition as the Faf Du Plessis-led side defeated Delhi Capitals by 47 runs on Sunday. The victory was extremely important for RCB as they remain in contention for the playoff spots - something that was highly unlikely after their dismal start. Virat Kohli's wife - Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma - was in attendance during the match and her reaction to the victory truly showed how much it meant for the side and their fans. He jumped up in excitement as RCB claimed the final wicket of the match and folded her hands to pray as the crowd erupted at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

Coming to the match, Rajat Patidar scored a brilliant half-century before Yash Dayal and Lockie Ferguson bundled out DC for just 140 to guide RCB to a crucial victory. Thanks to the win, RCB can now qualify for the playoffs with a big win over Chennai Super Kings considering other results also go their way.

"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. 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 he's (Swapnil) done brilliantly for us. 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," Faf said after the match.
