IPL 2021, RCB vs MI Highlights: Harshal’s hat-trick takes RCB
Maxwell (56 off 37 balls and 2/23) produced one of his better efforts in the IPL, while Harshal (4/17 in 3.1 overs), the current Purple Cap holder, defended Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard and Rahul Chahar. He was dismissed for successive balls. Aim of 165 without breaking much sweat.
MI were all out for 111 in 18.1 overs, making 57 for no loss in one leg, losing 10 for 54.
Captain Virat Kohli won the ‘boss battle’ against his national team deputy Rohit Sharma as RCB are back in the race for the play-offs with 12 points, while MI are seventh in eight with three consecutive losses. team table.
Kohli will also be happy with his second half-century and the form of his premier spinner Yuzvendra Chahal (3/11 in 4 overs).
Rohit hit three fours in an over off Kyle Jamieson. MI looked completely in control during the powerplay as Quinton de Kock also got some boundaries.
However, it was Chahal who removed de Kock and then Ishan Kishan’s full-blooded shot was removed by Rohit, who was trying to avoid a left wrist injury.
This must have affected his concentration as he tried to hit a second six off Maxwell, but this time Devdutt Padikkal made rival skipper Kohli’s delight at the long-on boundary.
Ishan Kishan (9 off 12 balls), who has barely scored 100 runs in nine IPL matches this season, will add to the worry of the national selectors as he played an irresponsible hawk against the innings of Chahal and Krunal Pandya (5). Played and then tried to break. Maxwell bowled the stalemate.
However, what disappointed the MI captain the most was how Suryakumar Yadav (8) chased down a wide yorker from Mohammad Siraj with an easy catch to short third man as MI rolled to 97 for 5 and recovery. seemed impossible.
Harshal then took his hat-trick to end the proceedings in style.
Earlier, Maxwell eventually did well after skipper Kohli’s second successive half-century on 56 to take Royal Challengers Bangalore to a par score of 165/6.
Kohli, who completed 10,000 runs in T20 cricket, scored 51 runs in 42 balls with the help of three fours and three sixes, but it was Maxwell who scored his expensive 37-ball blitzkrieg before Jasprit Bumrah was brought back into the game. Price tag justified.
Maxwell’s innings contained six fours and three sixes as he showed real destructive ability with switch hits, lap shots and flicks during the final overs when he hit MI pacers Adam Milne (1/48 in 4 overs) and Bumrah (3 in 4 overs). /26) was launched. over) with utter disdain.
Such was the pace of Maxwell’s hits that even the normally calm MI captain Rohit looked helpless before Bumrah dismissed both Maxwell and AB de Villiers (11) in successive deliveries, allowing them to at least get 20 in the last two overs. Helped to save 25 runs.
The normally dependable Devdutt Padikkal (0) had an off-day as Bumrah bowled a graceful bowling that pitched at length and took the outside edge to Quinton de Kock’s glove.
Kohli found a reliable partner in India (32 off 24 balls) as he quickly added 68 runs for the second wicket. Bharat smashed Rahul Chahar for two sixes for good measure, while Kohli also smashed Bumrah for a six over deep mid-wicket.
However, Bharat could not convert his start as Chahar bowled a straight and full delivery and the batsman did not find the required height at the long-off boundary.
Once Bharat was out and Maxwell came on, RCB could not force the pace despite some brilliant shots as Kohli and Maxwell added 50 runs in seven overs.
