New Delhi. The team of Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Rajasthan Royals at their home. This is the seventh defeat of Sanju Samson’s team after 13 matches in the tournament. At the same time, RCB is on 12 points with six wins in 12 matches and as many defeats, it is seen in a strong position. If Faf du Plessis’s team wins the remaining two matches, it will easily reach the playoffs. At the same time, the way forward for Rajasthan has now become impossible. Even after winning the last match, they will have to depend on the performance of other teams. A different pattern was seen in the tournament for Bangalore this season.
RCB, which has played 12 matches so far, has played a total of four matches in the day this season, while the team played the remaining eight matches at night. Virat Kohli and Co. were successful in winning all the matches played in the day. On the other hand, talking about the day’s match, this season this team lost six out of eight matches. This team won only in two matches. In such a situation, it would not be wrong to say that the Bangalore team is the lion of the day’s matches. They become wet cats at night.
Two teams will stake claim
RCB, which has played 12 matches, may have won all the four afternoon matches this season, but the going ahead is going to be very difficult for this team. In the remaining two matches, he has to take the field at night. Faf du Plessis’ team will field against Sunrisers Hyderabad on 18 May and Gujarat Titans on 21 May. In such a situation, RCB, which has lost six out of eight matches on the night, will have to be very careful. Otherwise, the hopes of reaching the playoffs may be dented.
Talking about today’s match, while batting first, Royal Challengers Bangalore scored 171 runs at the loss of five wickets. Chasing the target, the Rajasthan Royals team got all out for 59 runs. In this way, RCB won this match by 112 runs. Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell scored half-centuries in today’s match. RCB’s Wayne Panel took three wickets in his name.
