Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Delhi Capitals by 7 wickets in the 56th match of IPL 2021. Glenn Maxwell and KS Bharat contributed significantly to their team's victory by scoring superb fifties for RCB. However, in a way, Delhi gifted this match to RCB.

Delhi dominated the match for most of the time but the dropped catches by Shreyas Iyer and Ravichandran Ashwin overshadowed their team's valiant efforts and Capitals suffered a seven-wicket defeat. Iyer and Ashwin gifted the match to RCB by dropping two catches from Maxwell in the same over.


This incident happened in the last over of Axar Patel and in the 14th over of RCB's innings when Maxwell hit the ball in the air, trying to hit a big shot on the first ball of the over and Shreyas Iyer, standing at deep midwicket, dropped a simple catch.

After this, R Ashwin, fielding at short third man on the last ball of the same over, left a simple catch and rubbed salt on Delhi's wounds. Even if a single catch of Maxwell had been held on to, then perhaps Delhi could have easily won this match, but dropping Maxwell's catch proved disastrous for them.
