Fall Of Wickets
RR VS RCB MATCH 60. 59 ALL-OUT
KM Asif c Kohli b Karn Sharma 0(2)
RR 10th Wicket: WICKET – KM Asif is the last wicket to fall. It was a tossed up delivery and KM Asif went for the big heave down the ground. Kohli waited under the ball and it was an easy catch.
Zampa b Karn Sharma 2(6)
Ninth one down! RR vs RCB: WICKET – Zampa bowled for 2. Karn was decimated by Hetmyer in the previous over and so he got it over with taking the wicket of Zampa.
Hetmyer c M Bracewell b Maxwell 35(19)
Maxwell to Hetmyer, out Caught by M Bracewell!! Gone! That should be it. RCB now would wait for the margin of the victory. That was a tossed up delivery, Hetmyer went for the slog sweep but failed to beat the man at long-on. Simple take for the fielder. RR lose number 8. RCB are elated. They have annihilated RR so far. 171 didn’t look that great but they have bounced back superbly with the ball.
Ashwin run out (Siraj) 0(0)
8th WICKET Down – R Ashwin departs without scoring Run. Ashwin is surely not the quickest on the field. He is just short as the direct hit happened at the bowler’s end.
Dhruv Jurel c Lomror b M Bracewell 1(7)
Dhruv Jurel is sent back for 1. Dhruv Jurel pulls it but does not time it. The ball went very high and was easily taken by the man at deep mid.
Root lbw b Parnell 10(15)
It was a slower one from round the wicket and Root got beaten. Root went for a review and the ball struck on the pads, impact in line and it’s crashing into the leg-stump. Wayne Parnell gets his 3rd wicket for the day!
Padikkal c Siraj b M Bracewell 4(4)
Padikkal walks back for just 4. Free fall of wicket here in Jaipur. The umpire goes upstairs to check if it was a clean catch. Padikkal sent the ball straight to Siraj at mid-wicket. Siraj takes it inches above the turf!
Samson c Anuj Rawat b Parnell 4(5)
Captain Samson sent back for just 4 runs. It’s a big fish and that’s a rollicking start for the Royal Challengers Bangalore! Samson attempts an across-the-line heave but only gets a top edge that goes high up in the air. Rawat calls for it and settles nicely underneath to complete a really impressive catch.
Buttler c Siraj b Parnell 0(2)
Jos Buttler goes for a DUCK! Buttler slaps the ball uppishly to the fielder stationed at cover-point and Siraj makes no mistake.
Jaiswal c Kohli b Siraj 0(2)
Yashasvi Jaiswal on Thursday hit the fastest 50 in IPL history as the Rajasthan Royals hammered the Kolkata Knight Riders by nine wickets however, today he was gone for DUCK!
A duck for Jaiswal! It was pitched up by the bowler and Jaiswal smashes it straight to the fielder at mid-off.
Post Match Presentation
Wayne Parnell, Player of the Match: Obviously, credit to our batters. The last over gave us momentum. We could execute well. The message was to take pace off the ball. Bowl it at the sticks. We were able to execute everything. The surface was low, slow and skiddy. Was trying to make them play across the line. When I wasn’t playing, I was preparing. It is a long tournament and you need to be switched on every game.
Faf du Plessis: Really good for our NRR. Tough pitch. We batted first and assessed the conditions. We batted in the powerplay and thought 160 will be a good score. We have had a good set up till the 15th over. But we managed to capitalize on the momentum shift at the end. Great job. Bracewell would want to bowl on this every day of the week. We needed a left-arm spinner. May be Shahbaz could have been an option. Wrist spin could have been an attacking option. Hopefully, we can set it up for the last game at the Chinnaswamy. Today was a good one for the team. They needed this confidence to go into the last two games.
Sanju Samson, Rajasthan Royals captain: (On the batting performance) We usually go hard in the powerplay but that did not quite happen today. It will take some time to assess our display. That is the nature of T20 cricket, you have to go hard in the powerplay, knowing that the wicket will slow down. Today, it did not work out. Credit has to go out to the RCB bowlers and their teammates. Their energy was great and they really wanted to win this game. (On the score) That could have gone to the wire, it could have been a tight match if we had a decent powerplay. I felt that was a par score on this wicket. (On the second half of the campaign) That is a great question actually. I was thinking about it and where it went wrong. Sorry, I do not have an answer for that. We all know the nature of the IPL. We know things can change in a couple of days. Funny, funny things happen at the end of the league stages. We have to be strong, be professional and think about the game we are playing in Dharamsala. You have to keep your hopes high and try your best. (On trying to bat out the innings) There are a lot of different ways to look at it (in hindsight). The people out there might have thought the game was still in their hands and I think you cannot blame them the way they batted. We have to take responsibility as a team.
Michael Bracewell: It was nice to get those two points. Very valuable in this competition. For me to come back, and contribute to the win was nice. (On the pressure of the big game) We have great support staff here and you feel very included even if you are not in the playing eleven. I was just trying to stay up to speed as much as I could. (On the Rawat cameo) That was a massive innings. It was a difficult innings to get going on, and it gave us all the momentum going into the second innings. The way our bowlers started was spectacular as well. Our top three did all the dirty work to build a foundation for Anuj to capitalize at the end. I try to not get too caught up with the highs and lows of the game and just take it ball-by-ball. Two more must-win games and we are trying to take it game by game. As a group, we thrive under this sort of pressure, of having to win and having the tournament on the line.
