This match 15 of IPL 2020 was really a worth watching and fantastic match, and this time, whether the RCB batters or bowlers, both have played really well and took the team on the path to win. RCB has performed really well in this match, but the performance of RR was constantly poor except at the end of their batting.
This match started with RR winning the toss and opting to bat first, but it didn’t prove to be a fruitful decision for RR captain. For opening, Smith and Butler came, and bowling was given to Udana by the RCB captain. In the powerplay, RR lost three important wickets of Smith at 5, Samson at 4, and Buttler at 22.
These were some big shocks for RR fans as at the end of powerplay, Rajasthan was on 38 runs with three important wickets already down. Then Lomror came to play, and he played a really important role for RR almost till the end of their batting. It was only because of him RR was able to cross the score of 100 runs.
As everyone was expecting that RR will get all out within 100 runs, but it was Lomror who took the match beyond 100. Uthappa and Parag supported Lomror on the other side at both scored 17 and 16 each and got out. After that, Rahul Tewatia came to bat, and he scored 24 in just 12 balls and that by hitting three long sixes.
Then Lomror got out, and Jofra came to bat, and he scored 16 runs in 10 balls, and they were definitely required. So after 20 overs, when the inning ended, RR somehow scores 154 runs, and RCB requires 155 runs to win this match.
Now, from the RCB side as usual, Finch and Padikkal came to bat, and the first over was given to Jofra Archer for bowling. In the third over only, when Finch got out at eight and now it was Kohli on whom the complete game was dependent.
Everyone was expecting a good performance from Kohli today as in the last three matches, his scores were 14, 1, and 3, and thus all the RCB fans had huge expectations from Virat Kohli.
Kohli, very confidently played on the ground, fulfilled all the desires and expectations of all his fans by scoring a brilliant 72. Along with him, Padikkal also gave a constant and extremely good performance, and he scored a brilliant 63 in just 45 balls.
The RCB team was on the top of the hill as they were going to win the match and all because of the good performance and good captaincy of Kohli. He was extremely appreciated for his performance. They were almost close to winning by Padikkal got out in the 16th over and they the great hitter, Mr. 360, AB Devilliers came to bat, and Kohli and ABD togetherly took the match to win.
RCB very easily won the match and made its place at the top of the Points Table. After winning this match, RCB really reached the first position on the points table, and it was really satisfying watching the team of our Indian Captain at the top shining high.
This was a good match, and Chahal won the player of the match award because of his unusual bowling as he only gave 24 runs in 4 overs and took major three wickets, which were the big reason for RCB to win. He really deserved the award. Also, he received the purple cap after this match because he is in the first place for taking the maximum no of wickets.
