After an important win over Rajasthan Royals on Sunday, Royal Challengers Bangalore‘s locker room was joyful. RR finished their innings with the third-lowest score in IPL history after chasing a total of 172. In 10.3 overs, they were bowled out for 59. On Sunday in Jaipur, RCB dominated by scoring 112 runs to win the match. The IPL record for the lowest scoring total belongs to RCB. In 2017, they lost against the Kolkata Knight Riders after being shut out for 49. RR also had the second-lowest total, scoring only 58 runs in the same match against RCB in 2009. Virat Kohli was at it best in post match presentation.
If I had bowled.. Virat Kohli’s Fun statement
RCB players felt satisfied with their victory. Former captain Virat Kohli appears to be making a humorous comment in the locker room in a video that RCB published on their social media accounts. Virat Kohli jokingly said, “If I had bowled, they would have been out for 40.” While Kohli is more recognized for his batting skills, having scored 7062 runs in the IPL, it is less widely known that the former captain of the Indian cricket team has also taken four wickets all over the competition. In the two competitions, 2008 and 2011, he picked up two wickets.
Bracewell Believes RCB’s Top Order – Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis And Glenn Maxwell
When Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Rajasthan Royals by an amazing 112 runs in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 match at the Sawai Mansingh Indoor Stadium on Sunday, all-rounder Michael Bracewell praised RCB’s top three batsmen. When RCB lost the wicket of Virat Kohli following the end of the powerplay, half-centuries from RCB captain Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell determined the tone of the game. Anuj Rawat joined the match later in the first innings and scored an amazing undefeated knock of 29(11)* to help the team win.
“The top three batters deserve a lot of credit for setting the tone for us. Those two points were excellent to have and were helpful in the competition. It was good to play a part in the win. Even when you aren’t playing matches, you may still feel a part of the RCB team thanks to our excellent support personnel. It was challenging to get the wicket running. After the match, Bracewell replied, “He (Rawat) provided us a lot of momentum heading into the second innings with the way he hit.
