Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Wanindu Hasaranga had gone for a duck after a brilliant yorker from Rajasthan Royals’ Prasidh Krishna on Friday, May 27 at the Narendra Modi Stadium. Bangalore had scored 157/8 in their 20 overs after in-form Rajat Patidar’s half-century knock.

RCB seemed to have the advantages over RR when Rajat Patidar was at the crease scoring runs but the moment Ravichandran Ashwin dismissed him, RCB’s wickets fell quickly from then onwards.

In the 18.2 overs when RCB were at 146, entered Wanindu Hasaranga who fell prey to Prasidh Krishna’s brilliant yorker to go back with a golden duck. With Hasaranga’s wicket, Prasidh Krishna was on a hat-trick which he could’t complete. Hasaranga attempted to squeeze it out but couldn’t. He failed to get his bat down quickly and the ball then went to shatter the stumps.

Talking about the match, RR had won the toss and opted to bowl. RCB soon lost Virat Kohli and after him entered Rajat Patidar. Patidar played a half-century innings by scoring 58 runs in 42 balls including 4 fours and 3 sixes and Ravichandran Ashwin‘s ball sent him back. Patidar has been in good form, evident from his scoring a century in RCB’s Eliminator against Lucknow Supergiants.

Faf du Plessis played slowly and scored 25 runs off 27 balls. Glenn Maxwell tried to score big but couldn’t after Trent Boult’s last of his four overs dismissed him when he was on 24 off 13 balls. He had smashed a four and 2 sixes.

Prasidh Krishna and Obed McCoy’s bowling helped RR restrict RCB to 157 runs. Both the bowlers bagged three wickets each while Trent Boult and Ravichandran Ashiwn had one wicket each but Yuzvendra Chahal went wicketless in this match.
