RCB post their first win of the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League
The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) side posted their first victory in the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on 30th March 2022. In a low-scoring encounter, the KKR side batted first and was bowled out for 128, as Wanindu Hasaranga ripped through their batting line-up by scalping four wickets.
But then, the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) side got off to a very poor start. The Bangalore outfit was reduced to 17/3, with their top three batters, including Faf Du Plessis and Virat Kohli already back in the hut.
Sherfane Rutherford then came in and scored a patient 28 off 40 deliveries to lend some stability to the RCB side. Shahbaz Ahmed played some aggressive shots on his way to a quick 27 at a strike rate of 135. The experienced Dinesh Karthik made sure that the RCB side crossed the finish line, by scoring 14* off seven deliveries to close out the match for his side. RCB will play their next match on 5th April 2022 against the Rajasthan Royals.
