RR Vs RCB Highlights: Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated the Rajasthan Royals by 7 wickets in the Indian Premier League match on Wednesday. Virat Kohli and Devdutt Padikkal gave RCB a very fast start which was built upon by Srikar Bharat and Glenn Maxwell for a solid partnership in the middle-order. After Bharat was gone, Maxwell exploded and finished off the run chase with 17 balls to spare.

Earlier, Rajasthan Royals ended their innings at 149/9 after 20 overs against the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their IPL encounter on Wednesday. Rajasthan were cruising at 100/1 after 11 overs but lost their way completely after Evin Lewis’ dismissal, losing 8 for 49 in the last nine overs. Batter after batter came in, tried to swing their way to some runs, and perished. Shahbaz Ahmed and Harshal Patel had a wonderful evening, but let’s also not forget Yuzvendra Chahal’s spell for a second game running.

Brief scores:

Rajasthan Royals: Evin Lewis (58), Yashasvi Jaiswal (31); Harshal Patel 3/34, Shahbaz Ahmed 2/10, Yuzvendra Chahal 2/18

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Srikar Bharat (45), Glenn Maxwell (50); Mustafizur Rahman 2/20

RR Vs RCB IPL 2021 Highlights:

23:03 (IST)29 Sep 2021
RCB win by 7 wickets

And ABD finishes the match off in style with a 4. A terrific performance all around. RCB win by 7 wickets.

22:59 (IST)29 Sep 2021
Maximum Maxwell

Maxwell hits a 6. Morris is not having a good game. And a 4 in the third ball. Four off the fifth ball. 4 in the last ball as well. Brings up Maxwell's 50. RCB just need one now. 

22:53 (IST)29 Sep 2021
Bharat walks

Fizz has a great over considering the time and the players on crease. Just 4 off it. And Bharat is gone. Fizz gets his second. RCB 127/3 after 16 overs

22:49 (IST)29 Sep 2021
15 gone

Sakariya gets hit for a four straight away. Maxwell knows how to hit em. 8 off the over. RCB 123/2 after 15 ovs

22:43 (IST)29 Sep 2021
Bharat steady

Bharat hits a four off Tewatia. RCB are looking very comfortable with this partnership. 9 off the over. 14 gone. Royal Challengers 115/2

22:40 (IST)29 Sep 2021
The ball magnet

Sometimes, you are a ball magnet. Often in a negative sense, as when you have dropped a catch or let a boundary sieve through your palms, but the ball keeps chasing you. In the seventh over of RCB’s chase, the ball just kept following Riyan Parag, as though it were obsessed with him. The first ball, Virat Kohli bunted a single into his hands, prowling backward point, and he effected a direct hit of little consequence. More of the showboating variety. The next time Kohli regained strike, he slapped the ball airily, again at Parag, who flung to his left and grassed the catch. A ball later, Kohli was again on strike, and he again found his favourite fielder and set off for a quick run. A smuggled run, rather, but he underestimated Parag’s accuracy and power. It was identical to the catch, but this time the ball was hit along the ground. Parag leaped to his left and thwarted the ball, but the ricochet fell a few yards away from him, giving Kohli the leeway to run. But Parag had not lose sight of the ball. He sprung back to his feet, collected the ball in a trice, and thrashed out a tracer-tipped throw that had a searing Kohli stranded at the non-striker’s end, much to the disbelief of the hunter and the hunted. Parag was a ball magnet but this time in a positive sense.

22:37 (IST)29 Sep 2021
What a sixxxxxx

Bharat hits a six. Morris has been expensive so far. Bharat gets down on one knee, goes underneath the delivery and slog sweeps him imperiously. Overs ends at 11 runs. RCB 106/2 after 13 ovs.

22:32 (IST)29 Sep 2021
Bharat Maxwell build partnership

Bharat and Maxwell are slowly and surely taking RCB to the finish line. Bharat hit Lomror for a 4 in the 11.1 over while Maxwell ended the last one with a four.  RCB 95/2 after 12 ovs.

22:25 (IST)29 Sep 2021
Hat-trick almost-ball

What should be the hattrick ball? That was the question that Harshal Patel faced for the second successive match. In the last game, Patel had gone for a marvellous slow-dipping yorker. Here, the moment came in the last over after he had taken out Riyan Parag and Chris Morris. In a post-match chat with Yuzvendra Chahal after the last hat-trick, Patel had spoken about his thought process. “Last time (when he found himself with the opportunity to take a hat-trick) I had bowled the same ball (the slow dipping yorker) but it just missed the leg stump by two inches. But I decided to try it again. This was the first hat-trick of my life at any level of the game.” It was a no-brainer then that he would go for the same lucky dipping-yorker and he nailed it too but Kartik Tyagi was ready, and managed to stab it away. Siraj would perhaps be relieved as Patel had almost injured him in hat-trick celebrations by jumping onto his feet. Not to fret though, as Chetan Sakariya would miscue another slower one two balls later to make it three wickets in five balls.

22:16 (IST)29 Sep 2021
Tewatia twists

Tewatia comes to ball. Bharat hits a four. Just 7 off it though. Good over. RCB 66/2 after 8 ovs.

22:11 (IST)29 Sep 2021
Kohli gone

Morris to Kohli. Good length outside off stump. Opens the bat's face to backward point. Parag dives, stops the ball, and then takes aim at the bowler's end! Beautiful...it's a direct hit, and Kohli may be out trying to take a single off a misfield. Replays show Kohli is short by a metre or two! RCB 58/2 after 6.5 ovs.

22:06 (IST)29 Sep 2021
Powerplay ends

Good end to the last over of the poweplay. Just 6 off it as we go for strategic timeout. RCB 54/1 after 6 ovs

22:00 (IST)29 Sep 2021
Wicket

DDP's luck runs out as he is bowled by Mustafizur. Padikkal has been 'Fizz'ed! RCB 48/1 after 5.2 ovs

21:58 (IST)29 Sep 2021
Sizzling start

DDP looks in no mood to relent as Sakariya is punished for a 4 in the 4th ball of the 5th over.  5 off the over. RCB 48/0.

21:53 (IST)29 Sep 2021
Padikkal punishes

That dropped catch might come back to haunt RR as Padikkal hits a four off Mustafizur. The fifth ball is also hit for a boundary. Perfectly placed shot. RCB 41/0 after 4 ovs.

21:49 (IST)29 Sep 2021
Nice over

Sakariya in the attack.  Padikkal dropped in the over. Great over. Should have had a wicket. RCB 29/0 after 3 ovs

21:44 (IST)29 Sep 2021
Another great over for RCB

Padikkal hits a four off Tyagi now. Beautiful shot through the covers. RCB has started pretty quickly just like RR. 5th ball is also timed for a 4. Kohli this time. RCB 26/0 after 2 ovs.

21:39 (IST)29 Sep 2021
Starting with a bang

Kohli start with a lucky four. Lovely delivery but the batsman rode his luck. The fourth ball is also pulled for a four. No luck, just skills this time. And the last ball also goes for a four. 12 off the over. RCB 12/0 after 1 over

21:35 (IST)29 Sep 2021
RCB start their chase

Kohli and Padikkal are at the crease. Kohli is on strike. Chris Morris will open the attack

21:20 (IST)29 Sep 2021
RR score 149/9

Not a hat-trick in a second consecutive match. Harshal Patel, Purple Cap holder, has rattled RR in the last over though. Tyagi and Sakariya finish off for them. A wicket off the last ball as well. A 3rd wicket for Harshal!RR finish with 149/9. RCB to chase 150 to win.
