Rajasthan Royals ended their innings at 149/9 after 20 overs against the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their IPL encounter on Wednesday. Rajasthan were cruising at 100/1 after 11 overs but lost their way completely after Evin Lewis’ dismissal, losing 8 for 49 in the last nine overs. Shahbaz Ahmed and Harshal Patel had a wonderful evening, but let’s also not forget Yuzvendra Chahal’s spell for a second game running.
Maxwell goes to fine leg and this time gets good power and height. However, Mustafizur times his leap correctly and keeps the ball into the field of play even as the momentum pushes him beyond. Excellent effort from the RR fielder as he saves five runs for his team.
RCB did not have the best of starts after the IPL’s resumption as they lost two consecutive matches, including the forgettable nine-wicket defeat to Kolkata Knight Riders where they made just 92 runs.
Virat Kohli-led RCB is currently at third spot on IPL 2021 points table with 12 points from 10 matches and a win over RR will virtually put them in the playoffs.
