IPL 2018, RCB vs RR: Interesting Trivia between two giants

Step aside De Villiers and De Kock Why Virat Kohli is set to explode for RCB India captain Virat Kohli is threatening to go big for RCB

RCB are expected to continue with their young contingent of Washington Sundar and Mandeep Singh in the team, but Sarfaraz Khan may will have to make way for Murugan Ashwin if there is any late change in selections. His unbeaten knock drew widespread applause from the cricketing fraternity while skipper Ajinkya Rahane bestowed him with compliments and identified him as the future of Indian cricket.

Kohli cursed himself on his way out after finding D'Arcy Short at deep midwicket for a 30-ball 57, giving Gopal a moment to cherish. Despite losing Rahane's fellow opening batsman Short (11) and later English all-rounder Ben Stokes (27), Sanju continue with his massive hits to take the total beyond 200 mark. Kohli, along with de Kock looked like they would attain the mammoth target without much ado, but Shreyas Gopal struck two priceless wickets to derail their chase.

RCB's run chase did not have the best of starts as Brendon McCullum got out in the second ball of the innings itself for a first ball duck.

In a high scoring match, Gowtham had a decent outing as he conceded 36 runs in four overs and took a crucial wicket of the unsafe McCullum.

The first game will be played between the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals.




Yuvraj Singh, who appeared rusty in his stint against Delhi, was dismissed by Umesh in the same over as the previous two batsmen. His stay with Quinton de Kock (26) was promising, but both falling in quick succession increased the pressure on De Villiers.

The Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand, are yet to impress with the ball as Andre Russell bashed nearly all their bowlers in the havoc that he created at the Chepauk in the first home game of Dhoni's men.

According to information, RCB and their skipper Virat Kohli presented their sapling to RR captain Ajinkya Rahane on Sunday. Previously, they have lost the game against Mumbai Indians (MI), Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). Two overs later, de Villiers holed out off a similar ball.

The result lifts the Royals to third after three matches, while RCB sit sixth.

The home side, which will turn out in green on the occasion (an annual ritual), could be tempted to field an extra spinner although Kohli has spoken about his preference for giving only five bowlers total responsibility.
