Inspired by a brutal innings from David Warner the Delhi DareDevils built an impressive innings to set the Royal Challeners a total of 184 to chase at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
The DareDevils got off to a sensational start thanks to a cameo from Warner who smashed a quick fire 33 from just 14 balls which included three fours and two massive sixes as the Royals Challengers bowlers were punished by the young Australian.
The fireworks by Warner only lasted three overs before he was caught out at long off by Vinay Kumar to give Dale Steyn the important break through but it laid the platform for the DareDevils to build a big innings.
Virendar Sehwag (12) followed two overs later to leave the DareDevils well placed with the score 58-2 from just 5.1 overs as they looked to break a three game losing streak
AB de Villiers built an important innings of 45 before he was brilliantly ran out by a direct throw from Eion Morgan after he had built a partnership of 33 with Kedar Jadhav after the two came together in the 11th over after Dinesh Karthik (17) was run out.
With the DareDevils reaching 134-4 Andrew McDonald (18) joined Jadhav (50) at the crease and the pair built an important fourth wicket partnership of 49 runs to help the DareDevils reach 183-4 setting the Royals Challengers a tricky run chase.
