RCB records incredible win against Rajasthan Royals
By winning the toss, RCB put Rajasthan Royals to bat first. Although RCB kept the lid on the run scoring, RR let go at the end, helping them put a competitive total of 169 on the board. With quality spinners in the XI, RR had his nose ahead in the game.
RCB had a good start with the bat and didn’t lose a wicket in the power play. However, the team lost a few quick wickets leaving the team at 62-4. It was a tough chase from then on with not many experienced batters in the XI except Dinesh Karthik. However, the veteran got off to a positive start to the match and that provided a rush of momentum for the Bengaluru outfit. While Shahbaz Ahmed recorded a score of 45 (25), DK made 44 out of 23 deliveries to take the team home. It was a complete performance and with Glenn Maxwell ready for the next game, RCB is looking pretty strong at the moment.

RCB came up with a strategy to maintain the run rate. Which meant their batsmen had to play through their skin against a good RR bowling attack. If RR had thought, they could have bowled negative. Kudos to both teams for not playing negative. #IPL2022 #RRvsRCB

Eyes fill with tears at the sight of RCB taking full advantage of a player of DK’s caliber. So glad DK didn’t get to bat for Rutherford & Shahbaz today.#IPL2022
