Glenn Maxwell hammered 77 off 44 balls while Faf du Plessis contributed 62 off 39 balls but RCB ended up with a par score of 189 for nine against Rajasthan Royals in an IPL match, at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru on Sunday.
Stand-in skipper Virat Kohli (0) was adjudged leg-before to Trent Boult in first over but Du Plessis and Maxwell added 127 for the third wicket stand before RCB lost a bit of momentum towards the end.
Boult finished with 2 for 41 but best bowler on view for RR was Yuzvendra Chahal (1/28 in 4 overs). In his entire spell, Chahal conceded only one six and not a single boundary.
Brief Scores: RCB 189 for 9 in 20 overs (Glenn Maxwell 77 off 44 balls, Faf du Plessis 62 off 39 balls; Trent Boult 2/41, Yuzvendra Chahal 1/28) vs RR.
