DC finished fifth with 14 points, while RCB joined Gujarat Titans, Rajasthan Royals and Lucknow Super Giants in the play-offs with 16 points.
Defending Total, left-arm seamer Khalil Ahmed looked in good rhythm as he bowled the first two overs, conceding just two runs. He bowled perfectly outside the off-stump to put the openers in trouble, mainly Rohit Sharma (2).
Enrich Nortje finally ended Rohit’s struggle by mid-on MI captain.

Ishaan and Bravis then added 51 off 37 balls but Kuldeep Yadav (1/33) broke the partnership by releasing the former with a beautiful catch from David Warner.
Bravis countered the opposition’s attack and hit two sixes and a four off Kuldeep’s ball, which could have caught him but the skipper Pant added to the bowler’s pain by dismissing the sitter in the 12th over.
However, as MI 3 slipped to 95 in the 15th over, Bravis pulled one off his stumps.
It was then David’s show the way Deep hit a six off the mid-wicket Shardul Thakur.

Ramandeep Singh (2/29 in 2 overs) also managed to take two wickets.
After recovering from typhoid, Shaw (24) appeared to be in good contact but Sams had his first success when he caught Warner at the hands of Bumrah on a short third man.
Bumrah then turned the heat on as he first got the outside edge of Mitchell Marsh and Rohit took a low catch and then returned to send Shaw back with an unbeaten bouncer.
It was time for Markande to shine ahead as Sarfaraz Khan bowled one off the off-stumps and DC’s score in the ninth over was 50 for four.
With Shokin and Markande bowling together, DC made their lowest score of the season at the halfway mark – 55 for four.

When Pant left the anchor, Powell exploded in the 12th over, hitting Shokin 20 runs for a maximum of two and a four.
Markande was in the next line because Powell submitted it long before MI accepted the buy-in.
Meredith threw a tight over, losing just two.
Ramandeep then bowled three wide and hit a six and a four before taking Pant’s wicket in his final ball.
Powell then pulled Bumrah on a deep square leg, while Akshar Patel (19 not out) hit a timely six off Sams.
However, Bumrah made his trademark toe-crushing yorker to disrupt Powell’s wood and got almost another wicket, if only Bravis could have caught with one hand.
Ramandeep took the wicket for 11 runs in the final over.
