It was Paddykal’s first century in the IPL, for which he faced 52 deliveries and hit 11 fours and six sixes. He is the third young batsman to score a century in the IPL. But he is the youngest to do so while chasing a goal. The 20-year-old was named Man of the Match for his performance. Also, this is the 14th century for RCB, the highest century of any IPL franchise. The Rajasthan Royals were similarly battered by their performance in previous matches but their bowlers performance was not so bad. However, no bowler in this match could take a single wicket. In this way, the team reached the lowest point in the points table.
Earlier, Rajasthan Royals initially bowled and fielded wickets in support of Captain Kohli’s decision to win the toss. Mohammed Siraj took three wickets for 27 runs while Harshal Patel took three wickets in the last over. Kyle Jamison, Kane Richardson and Washington Sunder took one wicket each. Rajasthan Royals batting issue remains a problem in this match. Captain Sanju Samson’s hopes of playing big innings could not be fulfilled. But Shivam Dubey (46, 32 balls, five fours, two sixes) and Ryan Parag (25 runs, 16 balls, four fours) contributed 66 runs for the fifth wicket. Rahul Tivatiya scored 40 off 23 balls with four boundaries and two sixes.
Padikkal scored a century against Rajasthan and RCB won by 10 wickets
After being invited to bat, the team lost one wicket in each over from Powerplay’s third to fifth. Jose Butler (08) was expected to give the team a good start but it did not happen and Siraj bowled his ball in the second over. Kyle Jamison gave Manan Wohra (07) a second over in the next over, when he caught Kane Richardson in the middle to try to lift the ball. In the fifth over, Siraj appealed to LBW against David Miller at the crease and RCB captain Kohli decided to take a review against the Rajasthan Royals. Miller was also surprised by Siraj’s Yorker, so the team’s strategy of putting him in fourth place did not work.
Rajasthan Royals lost three wickets for 32 runs in the Powerplay. After the powerplay, Samson (21) opened the hand and Washington Sundar’s first delivery in the eighth over sent the midwicket for six. But his desire to play a long innings ended in the next delivery, in which he took the ball back to the midwicket but the shot was not strong and he was. Dubey and Parag were again instrumental in managing the innings. Harshal Patel broke the half-century partnership by dismissing Parag. Dubey played his best innings in the IPL but missed the half-century by four runs. He was dismissed by Richardson. In the end the team scored 170 runs and lost three wickets.
This ball of Siraj is getting much praise, the umpire’s decision had to be changed
