RR Blows Away RCB In Just 28 Overs

- Advertisement -


Royal Challengers Bangalore probably have not come out of their shocking defeat against KKR the other day when they had the game in their bags for most of the period of the game and yet they lost the game in last two overs. This showed in their performance in this game as they bundled out for just 70 runs against Rajasthan Royals. The pitch was helping the bowlers but then RCB batsmen wanted to get out of the jail forcefully and in the process gave away their wickets. Around 48 runs they lost 7 wickets but thanks to Kohli, Starc, and Rampaul they could crawl to 70. RR just needed to keep their heads cool while chasing this target and that’s what they did, although they did lose 4 wickets in the process, they never looked out of control at any point of the time.
