IPL 2020: Royal Challengers Bangalore Beat Rajasthan Royals By 8 Wickets

In the 15th match of IPL 2020, Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Rajasthan Royals by 8 wickets with the help of brilliant half-centuries from young opener Devdutt Padikkal and captain Virat Kohli. 
Bangalore surpassed the target of 155 for victory by losing 2 wickets in 19.1 overs. With this victory, RCB has come first in the points table.

Facing a score of 155, Bangalore did not have a good start. At 25, the team suffered a setback from opener Aaron Finch. However, young batsman Devdutt Padikkal later teamed up with captain Virat Kohli to lead the team to victory. He hit 63 off 45 balls, hitting his second half-century in the league. He hit 6 boundaries and a six in this innings. Virat Kohli, on the other hand, showed his first form in the league with a superb unbeaten 72 and remained unbeaten till the end.

Earlier, Rajasthan Royals won the toss and elected to bat first. Steve Smith's decision proved to be wrong for the team. Captain Smith himself was dismissed for 5 in the third over and Jose Butler for 22 in the next over. Sanju Samson, who is in great form, also failed today and became a victim of walking. The team lost the three most important players with a score of 31 runs. Later, Robin Uthappa (17) and Mahipal Lormore (47) spread stability in the team and recorded a 39-run partnership. However, Uthappa turned the tide again in the hopes of a big score for the Royals as they were out at crucial times.

Lormore played an innings of 47 off 39 balls with the help of 3 sixes and 1 four. Joffra Archer and Rahul Tewatia played useful innings in the last overs to take the team to 154 runs. For Bangalore, Yuzvendra Chahal bowled brilliantly and took important wickets of Samson, Uthappa and Lormore. Ishuru Udana, on the other hand, also took two wickets. However, it proved to be very costly and gave up 41 runs in 4 overs. Chahal gave up just 24 runs in the spell of four overs.
