Rahane scored 60 runs from 46 balls at a strike rate of 130.43. His important knock consisted of five fours and a six.
In the ongoing season, the India international has played in six matches, scoring 111 runs at a strike rate of 111.0. His boundary count amounts to 12 fours and two sixes.
RCB set a 153-run target for DC, with Devdutt Padikkal grabbing a half-century. DC had a shaky start, losing Prithvi Shaw early on. But Rahane and Dhawan build a match-winning partnership with the latter also scoring 54 from 41 balls. Dhawan also hit six fours.
The duo was dismissed and couldn’t stay till the end, but did enough for DC to seal a win by six wickets.
DC will now face Mumbai Indians (MI) in the first playoff, and the winner will qualify directly for the final.
