Royal Challengers Bangalore’s (RCB) AB de Villiers helped pull off a close chase for his side in their Indian Premier League match against Rajasthan Royals (RR). He came in to bat in the 13th over and started striking from the very beginning.
In the day match played at Dubai, RR won the toss and chose to bat first. They got off to a good start with Robin Uthappa scoring a fluent 41. Skipper Steve Smith then scored an excellent half-century to take his side to a total of 177. In the chase, RCB lost Aaron Finch early but Virat Kohli and Devdutt Padikkal were involved in a good partnership. They were then dismissed in quick succession leaving AB de Villiers and Gurkeerat Singh Mann with a lot of work to do.
De Villiers then took over as he went after the bowlers. He was especially harsh on Jaydev Unadkat against whom he hit three sixes in a single over. He then finished off the match with a six off Jofra Archer.
