Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) stay afloat in the race of Playoffs. With a win over Gujarat Titans, RCB have kept themselves in the hunt. However, they have a much worse net run rate as compared to Delhi Capitals, who are their competitor for that last playoff spot, and thus will keep an eye on DC’s next game against MI.
Coming to this game, it was double joy for RCB fans as not only their team won but Virat Kohli also returned among runs. The former RCB captain scored a 54-ball 73 to help his team chase down 169 with ease. Kohli showed intent right from the beginning and reaped rewards of it in the form of the second half-century of the season. Luck also favoured Kohli as he survived a few close calls.
He found a really good supporter in Faf du Plessis who played the second fiddle in their partnership. The RCB captain perished after putting 44 runs off 38 balls against his name. After Kohli and du Plessis got out, Glenn Maxwell finished things off pretty quickly with his blistering 40* off 18 balls.
As RCB stay alive in the race, Twitter users shared their emotions. Have a look at the top reactions from the game here:
