IPL 2021 – match no. 43, RR ( Rajasthan Royals ) vs RCB ( Royal Challengers ) cricket match had been scheduled today in which RCB won by 7 wickets.
Virat Kohli wins the TOSS and asks Rajasthan to bat first in Dubai.
Sanju Samson, RR skipper: The wicket is nice. People who have batted first here have won the game as well. As a team, we were a bit down. Had a long chat yesterday. Karthik Tyagi comes in, in place of Jaydev Unadkat.
Virat Kohli, RCB captain: I feel the pitch remained good in the last game. If you get off to a decent start, you can get runs consistently. Feel as a batting unit, we’re doing a good job and want to continue that. Want to provide our bowlers with the conditions… this is a new track. I feel like I’m hitting the ball the best I have in a while. We have one chance. Kyle Jamieson misses out. Garton makes his IPL debut. The exciting left-arm pacer, good with the bat and is a gun fielder.
Harshal Patel picked up three while Shahbaz Ahmed and Yuzvendra Chahal grabbed a couple of wickets each as Royal Challengers Bangalore restricted Rajasthan Royals to 149/9 in Dubai. Evin Lewis (58) was the top scorer for Rajasthan.
