RCB’s dream run in IPL 2021

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) experienced a decent run in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), hosted in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The franchise was out of the tournament after losing to Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the Eliminator game. 

However, the team buried the demons of the past and got off to a blistering start in the 14th edition of the T20 Extravaganza. They won their first match against Mumbai Indians and followed it up with wins against SRH, KKR, and RR. However, the team’s winning streak broke as they were outplayed by the Chennai Super Kings (CSK). 

The franchise didn’t mind the loss and they made a comeback against Delhi Capitals. They are now up against Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the 26th match of IPL 2021. Entering the contest, the Challengers have made only one change as they replaced Washington Sundar with Shahbaz Ahmed.
