Royal Challengers Bangalore almost threw it away, but thanks to the genius of Navdeep Saini managed to cross the line in the Super Over. Virat Kohli’s team had been humiliated by Kings XI Punjab in the previous game, but the batting division bounced back in style, putting an impressive target on the board. RCB should have galloped to victory, but kept sweating thanks to a brilliant at bat by Ishan Kishan and Kieron Pollard. As the game entered the Super Over, AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli crossed the line after setting a meager goal of 8 runs. Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma took to Instagram to express her relief, saying the RCB and MI meeting was “too exciting a game for a pregnant lady”.
Anushka posted shared images of Kohli and De Villiers sharing a hug after the Super Over win, with the teams congratulating each other and the RCB bench celebrating their second win in three matches in IPL 2020.
RCB placed 201 for three after hitting with Devdutt Padikkal (54), Aaron Finch (52) and AB de Villiers (55) who hit half centuries. For the third running game, the RCB captain failed to score a meager 3 out of 11 balls.
Young all-rounder Shivam Dube hit a rapid fire of 27 from 10 balls to push RCB past 200.
