RR vs RCB Match Highlights: IPL 2021, Royal Challengers Bangalore crush Rajasthan Royals by 7 wickets

RR vs RCB:

Yuzvendra Chahal (4-0-18-2) has been chosen for the Man of the Match award.

The leggie starts by sharing that he came late into the attack as there were two left-handers batting so Virat Kohli planned to go with the medium-pacers.

Tells us that he has watched the videos of Mahipal Lomror and it was a plan to bowl wider outside off if he uses his feet.

Admits that in the first half of the season, he didn’t get wickets regularly but he has backed himself after the break.

Mentions that he got his confidence back after the Sri Lankan series and is looking to maintain the same momentum.

Rajasthan Royals batted first and their openers gave them a terrific start adding 77 runs between them. Evin Lewis struck his first fifty of the season before departing.

However, after the two departed, RR innings suffered a collapse from 100/1 to finish at 149/9 in 20 overs. In reply, Royal Challengers Bangalore started the chase with a flurry of boundaries.

After Kohli was to run out on 25, Srikar Bharat and Glenn Maxwell stitched a 69-run stand for the third wicket which put them on course for the win. They overhauled the target in 17.1 overs with Maxwell unbeaten on 50 off 30.

Yet another convincing victory for Bangalore! A neat and clean chase from them and they have grabbed two crucial points.

They stay third at the moment but would be feeling a lot better now after a bumpy start to the second leg.

Bangalore have now opened up 4-point gap with both Kolkata and Mumbai on the table and have got some breathing space.

As far as Rajasthan are concerned, they are now to left with an uphill task and things are looking increasingly difficult for them.
