Appreciate Virat but don’t forget Plessis’ contribution! Flowing axis of batting with leadership
Sunrisers Hyderabad faced defeat at their home ground i.e. Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Hyderabad by 8 wickets in this match. Virat Kohli scored a brilliant century for RCB in this match. He was awarded the man of the match award. However, on the other side, RCB’s captain and opener Faf du Plessis also played an important role in the victory by maintaining consistency in his performance.
Virat Kohli hit 100 off 63 balls with 4 sixes and 12 fours while chasing the 187-run challenge to keep the tournament challenge alive. Also, Plessis also scored 71 runs off 47 balls with the help of 2 sixes and 7 fours. They shared a partnership of 172 runs for the first wicket. Hence, RCB bagged the match by 8 wickets with 4 balls to spare and 187 runs to spare.
Plessis, who was a part of RCB last year and led the team, has been seen driving RCB’s batting throughout this season. He has played 13 matches and scored 702 runs in 13 innings at an extraordinary average of 58.50. Interestingly, this time his strike rate was seen as strong as 153.94. 8 fifties have come from his bat in the season so far. He has also staked his claim on the orange cap awarded to the highest run-scorer in the tournament.
RCB, who are looking for their first title, have a good chance of making it to the playoffs this year. If they win their final match against Gujarat, they will qualify for the play offs. Also, if Chennai and Lucknow lose their matches, they can also get a chance to play the qualifier match by moving to the second position.
