Led by speedster Zaheer Khan (2/31), the bowling unit of Delhi Daredevils dominated Royal Challengers Bangalore as they restricted them for 157/8 in the fifth match of the IPL 2017 on Saturday.
However, wicketkeeper-batsman Kedar Jadhav managed to score a causative 69-run knock to lay a foundation for RCB at their home ground M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
The 32-year-old batsman from Maharashtra smashed five boundaries and five sixes and concluded his knock at a notable strike rate of 186.48.
Jadhav became the second victim of Delhi skipper Zaheer, who had dismissed Vishnu Vinod (9) earlier in the same over.
Hitting a full-on delivery by Zaheer, Jadhav lofted it towards mid-off where Chris Morris made no mistake.
Besides the impressive catch, Morris claimed three big wickets with his medium-fast bowling.
Pacer Pat Cummins and spinner Shahbaz Nadeem took the scalp of Mandeep Singh (12) and RCB captain Shane Watson (24) to join the celebration.
