The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are placed third at the moment on the points table of the ongoing IPL 2020 in the UAE. They have won 5 matches out of 7 and achieved their latest win over KKR by 82 runs.
It was achieved primarily due to an amazing knock of 73* by AB de Villiers and then by spirited bowling from Chris Morris, Washington Sundar, and Yuzvendra Chahal. While Morris and Sundar bagged 2 wickets each, Chahal got rid of KKR skipper Dinesh Karthik and produced exceptionally economical figures of 12/1 in his completed 4-over spell.
Chahal has been very good for RCB with 10 wickets in 7 matches with an economy of 7.07 and best bowling of 3/18. He took to social media to post a photograph from a KKR match with a caption: "No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it. Great team effort tonight."
This received a brilliant reply from none other than Yuvraj Singh, who is known for his wits. The former India and RCB player tweeted “Tu kisi ko nahi marne de raha ! Lagta hai maidan par vapas aana padega ! Great spell Yuzi top class”
To which, Chahal recalled getting hammered for 3 sixes off 3 consecutive balls by Yuvraj Singh during the IPL 2019, when Singh was playing for Mumbai Indians. Chahal replied, “I still remember 3 balls 3 sixes Bhaiya”
RCB posted a massive total of 194/2 after an unbeaten 100-run partnership was added by Kohli and de Villiers in just 46 deliveries. In reply, KKR managed just 112/9 as their batsmen just couldn’t find any momentum of any sort.
