The Royal Challengers are heading in the wrong direction:
Two very different Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli got off to a bumpy start, scooping up gloppy limits with the periphery of the bat as MS Dhoni used his pace bowlers with the new ball, but they pushed on: Kohli launched Simarjeet Singh for six over the covers, while du Plessis took 18 runs from his third over against Mukesh Choudhary.
However, they battled against spin, with the finger spinners getting some hold from a decent length: du Plessis grounded out to square leg off Moeen, while Kohli’s own bat problems continued. He was dismissed through the gates by a steeply offbreak from Moeen Ali for a patchy 30 runs off 33 balls after urging Glenn Maxwell along for a single that was not there and just seeing him run out by Robin Uthappa. Royal Challengers had sputtered from 51 for 0 after five overs to 79 for 3 after ten. In the end Royal Challengers came back stronger.
Royal Challengers Bangalore paved their way to the 4th position by earning 12 points. They have played 11 matches so far in the league. Out of 11 matches, they won 6 matches and lost 5 matches so far. Lets see if RCB uplift their game to Top 3.
