After suffering consecutive defeats against the Delhi Capitals and the Mumbai Indians, RCB made a strong comeback in the match.
FAF DU PLESSIS AND GLENN MAXWELL SHINE WITH HALF-CENTURIES
Winning the toss, RCB opted to bat first and posted a formidable total of 171/5 in their 20 overs. The team owed its strong score to outstanding batting performances by Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell, who both scored impressive half-centuries. Their contributions laid a solid foundation for RCB’s victory.
ANUJ RAWAT’S QUICK-FIRE KNOCK BOOSTS RCB’S TOTAL
While RCB’s middle order struggled, young batsman Anuj Rawat played a crucial role in boosting the team’s total. Rawat’s quick-fire knock of 29 not out off just 11 balls significantly contributed to RCB’s final score.
WAYNE PARNELL SHINES WITH THE BALL FOR RCB
RCB’s bowling attack was led by Wayne Parnell, whose exceptional performance restricted the Rajasthan Royals to a meager total of 59 runs in the 11th over. Parnell’s excellent display of bowling played a pivotal role in RCB’s dominant victory.
VIRAT KOHLI’S CHEEKY REMARK: “WOULD’VE BEEN ALL OUT FOR 40”
Following the match, RCB captain Virat Kohli made a playful comment in the changing room video. Kohli humorously stated, “If I had bowled, they would’ve been all out for 40.” Despite the team’s convincing win, Kohli jokingly suggested that RCB could have restricted the opposition to an even lower total.
Overall, RCB’s strong batting performance, led by du Plessis and Maxwell, along with an exceptional bowling display, paved the way for their commanding victory over the Rajasthan Royals.
