Delhi won the toss and opted to bat at the Feroz Shah Kotla.
Openers Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan set up a good base for the hosts, hitting 35 off the first three-and-a-half overs before the former was dismissed by Umesh Yadav.

Shikhar Dhawan - Runs in the last four IPL seasons 2016 - 501 2017 - 479 2018 - 496 2019 - 451 Since the start of IPL 2016, Dhawan has scored 1927 runs with 16 fifty-plus scored in 59 inns. Only Kohli (2211) & Warner (2100) have scored more runs in the timeline #IPL2019 #DDvRCB
Despite a solid start, Delhi's scoring slowed significantly, with Rishabh Pant and Colin Ingram both falling cheaply.
The pair duly added 46 together to get the hosts to a decent total of 187 for five.
It was by no means out of reach for RCB, and Parthiv Patel and Virat Kohli put on 63 before the loss of the first wicket in the sixth over.
However, both were out before the eighth over was completed, and although AB de Villiers and Shivam Dube combined for 41, RCB fell behind the rate and could not recover.
Mumbai Indians, meanwhile, never had a chance in their chase after KKR had set a target of 233 for victory.
Openers Shubman Gill (76 runs from 45 balls) and Chris Lynn (54 from 29) both made valuable contributions after Kolkata were put into bat.
But it was Andre Russell who provided the fireworks as he hit 80 off 40 balls, smashing eight sixes and six fours:
Dinesh Karthik's 15 runs from seven balls propelled KKR to a stunning total of 232 for two:
In response, Mumbai never had enough. Hardik Pandya did his best from No. 6 as he hit a superb 34-ball 94. But the Indians were never nearly on track to compete after managing just 41 runs in the powerplay.
