KATHMANDU: Delhi Capitals reached its target of 153 runs in 19 overs to enter Thursday’s qualifier against Mumbai Indians, where the winner goes through to the final.

Royal Challengers Bangalore ensured their net run-rate remained high enough to advance.

Bangalore will now meet either Kolkata Knight Riders or Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Kolkata occupies fourth place, but will be overtaken by Sunrisers if it beats Mumbai in Tuesday’s final group game.

Whoever does advance will play Bangalore in Friday’s eliminator, where the winner goes on to play the loser of the Mumbai-Delhi match, and the defeated team goes out.

Bangalore, captained by India skipper Virat Kohli, would have been at risk of elimination had they been beaten inside 17.3 overs, thus severely denting their net run-rate.

That was a possibility when Delhi pair Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane were adding 88 for the second wicket.

However, Dhawan fell for 54 and Rahane for 60, leaving Delhi to eventually complete the chase with an over to spare.

It means that Bangalore will enter the play-offs on the back of four successive defeats.
