RR vs RCB: Royal Challengers Bangalore on the threshold of playoff after defeating Rajasthan Royals

The target of 150 runs in front of RCB, Rajasthan scored only 29 runs in the last five overs, Harshal got 3 wickets in the last over

IPL 2021 is now excitingly moving towards the knockout matches. A royal match is being played between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) in Dubai today. On the one hand, while winning this match, RCB will take a step forward towards the playoffs, on the other hand, if in the match, RR would like to maintain themselves in this race.

Stumbling innings after a good start

Mohammad Siraj got the first success for RCB by dismissing Yashasvi Jaiswal (31). Jaiswal and Evin Lewis added 77 runs in 50 balls for the first wicket. Dhakkaru Debuting George Garten, who was batting brilliantly, dismissed Evin Lewis (58) and inflicted a second blow to Crook. This was Lewis' third in the IPL and the first fifty for RCB.

3 wickets in 7 balls

Yuzvendra Chahal got Mahipal Lomror (3) to give RCB the fourth breakthrough. The team had not yet recovered from the blow that after 3 balls, Shahbaz Ahmed first sent Sanju Samson (19) and then Rahul Teotia (2) to the pavilion and broke the back of the wicket. The Royals took these three big wickets in just 7 balls. Apart from these, Liam returned to the pavilion after getting out on Livingstone (6) and Riyan Parag (9).

Harshal's magic again

The magic of Harshal Patel, who took a hat-trick against Mumbai, was once again seen. He took 3 wickets in the last over of the innings. Patel dismissed Riyan Parag (9) and Chris Morris (14) in two consecutive balls. It seemed that he would once again be able to take a hat-trick, but it did not happen. Harshal may not have completed the hat-trick, but on the last ball of the over, he also showed the way to the dressing room by dismissing Chetan Sakaria (2).
