The match no. 10 of IPL 2021 witnessed some classy batting from RCB’s overseas duo of Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers on Sunday. Batting on a difficult wicket at Chepauk, the explosive cricketers smashed KKR bowlers all over the park to put on a mammoth total of 204/4 in 20 overs.
The Aussie all-rounder continued his impressive start to the season as he played another match-winning knock of 78 runs off 49 deliveries. On the other end, AB de Villiers produced a masterclass performance as he played an unbeaten innings of 76 runs off 34 deliveries to power RCB to a 200+ score.
In reply, Eoin Morgan’s side tried to put on a valiant fight but they never looked in the contest. Yuzvendra Chahal (2/34) and Harshal Patel (2/17) were impressive with the ball, while Mohammed Siraj also bowled a superb penultimate over to Andre Russell which sealed a 38-run win for his side.
RCB completed a hattrick of wins in this season and have certainly revived the hopes of the fans as they chase their first-ever IPL title. The fans were surely delighted with the team’s performance as they did not spare Punjab Kings once again for releasing Maxwell, praised ABD and Siraj for their heroics, while trolled KKR for their lackluster performance on Sunday.
