Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Gujarat Titans, 52nd Match Report: In IPL 2024, the 52nd match of the tournament was played today between Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Gujarat Titans. Host team captain Faf du Plessis won the toss and decided to field first. His decision was proved right by the bowlers in the power play itself. After a poor start, Gujarat set a challenging target of 148 runs for RCB, which the hosts achieved with 4 wickets remaining.

After getting to bat first, Wriddhiman Saha came out to bat along with captain Shubman Gill on the field. Wriddhiman Saha scored 1 run and Shubman Gill became the victim of Mohammad Siraj after scoring 2 runs. Sai Sudarshan, who was in excellent form, also returned to the pavilion after scoring 6 runs, but David Miller and Shahrukh Khan made an important partnership of 61 runs for the fourth wicket. David Miller was out after scoring 30 runs and King Kohli ran out Shahrukh Khan after scoring 37 runs. In the middle order, Rahul Tewatia played an excellent inning of 35 runs and Rashid Khan also contributed 18 runs.

Titans lost the last 5 wickets for 16 runs and the entire team collapsed for 147 runs. For RCB, Siraj, Yash Dayal and Vijaykumar Vishak got 2-2 wickets, while Karn Sharma and Cameron Green got 1-1 success.

Captain Faf played a stormy inning of 64 runs in 23 balls which included 10 fours and 3 sixes. After the fall of Faf du Plessis, RCB's middle order fell apart like a pack of cards. From 92/0, Bengaluru's score became 117/6. Will Jacques 1, Rajat Patidar 2, Glenn Maxwell 4 and Cameron Green flopped badly by scoring 1 run. The pressure of these consecutive wickets also came on Virat Kohli. He also returned to the pavilion on 42 runs.
