RR vs RCB Highlights And Match Report: A Sluggish Beginning
Earlier in the match, Faf du Plessis didn’t think twice about batting first on a wicket that appeared to be slowing down over time, according to the RR vs RCB Pitch Report, and it most definitely did. He, with his partnership with Virat Kohli, could only produce 42 runs in the powerplay. According to the RR vs RCB Highlights and match report, Virat Kohli was eliminated shortly after the powerplay, although Bangalore did well to avoid losing an early wicket.
As per the RR vs RCB Highlights and match report, Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell made yet another outstanding catch to keep the scoreboard going. Maxwell started smashing the RR bowlers to lift the run rate and reached 50 in just 30 balls. The captain, though, was dismissed shortly after reaching 50, and Rajasthan was able to collect wickets at a rapid rate as per the RR vs RCB Highlights and match report.

However, Anuj Rawat had a great cameo and raised the score to 171, which is above average for this specific deck. According to the RR vs RCB Highlights and match report, Sandeep Sharma and Adam Zampa consistently bowled brilliantly. Although KM Asif took some impressive wickets, his final over was not so great. When it came time to chase, Rajasthan failed to put up much of a fight, and the Bangalore bowlers easily carried their side across the finish line.
Rajasthan Got Thrown Down
Rajasthan started their batting to chase a total of 171. But it all started and ended for them at a blinking speed. In-form Jos Buttler and Yashasvi opened the inning for them. Jos Buttler quickly followed Yashasvi Jaiswal back to the hut, both scoring zero runs. According to the RR vs RCB Highlights and match report, Parnell, after taking Buttler’s wicket, sent Sanju to the pavilion in the same over.
Sanju Samson threw his wicket away with a needless, huge shot, and everything just started to fall apart for the Royals. As per the RR vs RCB Highlights and match report, only Joe Root and Shimron Hetmyer reached double digits, and only Hetmyer was able to challenge the opposition’s bowlers. Rajasthan appeared to be on the rebound after the previous game, but this one has put them squarely on the defensive and on the verge of being eliminated.
For Bangalore, as per the RR vs RCB Highlights and match report, Wayne Parnell turned into Bruce Wayne, showcasing a Man of the Match performance by bagging 3 wickets while giving away just 10 runs. Mitchael Bracewell and Karn Sharma took 2 wickets each for 16 and 19 runs, respectively.
