Royal Challengers Bangalore almost threw it, but managed to get to the line in the super over due to the talent of Navdeep Saini. Virat Kohli’s team was humiliated by Kings XI Punjab in the previous match, but the batting department bounced back in style, and kept a challenging target on the board. RCB should have headed to victory, but some brilliant batting by Ishaan Kishan and Kieron Pollard gave up the sweat. With the match going to the super over, AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli put the team in line, setting a target of 8 runs. Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma said on Instagram to express her relief, the RCB vs MI encounter was “a very exciting game for a pregnant woman”.
Anushka shared different pictures of Kohli and de Villiers after the Super Over victory, the teams congratulated each other and the RCB bench celebrated their second win in three matches in the IPL 2020.
RCB posted 201 for three after batting with half-centuries from Devdutt Padikkal (54), Aaron Finch (52) and AB de Villiers (55). For the third match, RCB captain failed to fire, scoring 3 runs off 11 balls.
Young all-rounder Shivam Dubey hit a quick innings of 27 runs from 10 balls to take RCB to 200.
