Defending 144 runs in a T20 match is not always a comfortable mark for the bowlers, however, having excellent players with batting and bowling skills can lead your path towards victory. Assam’s pride, Riyan Parag with an unbeaten 31-b 56 (3×4; 5×6) redefined the innings for Rajasthan Royals with his brilliant catching on Tuesday.
The efforts of the young player were followed by bowlers Kuldeep Sen (4/20) and spinner R Ashwin (3/17), who together blocked the road of Royal Challengers Bangalore in their path towards victory.
Rajasthan Royals handed RCB their second consecutive loss in the season at MCA stadium, Pune. While chasing 145 runs, RCB fell short by 30 runs, after they were all bowled out by 115 in 19.3 overs
The fans of Royal Challengers Bangalore had high hopes for the team after their drastic loss with Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, the batsmen did not seem to put up the game they were expected to deliver and amongst them, only Faf fu Plessis gave a decent fight.
Disappointing the cricket fans, the former RCB captain showed a terrible display. After receiving an off short delivery from Prasidh Krishna (2/23), the player handed over his catch to Parag after contributing 9 runs to the match.
