Match Ended   
144/8 (20.0/20)
Rajasthan Royals beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by 29 runs
Right then. That’s it from this contest. The action from the Indian T20 League continues on 27th April, where Gujarat will take on Hyderabad. The first ball will be bowled at 7:30 pm IST (2:00 pm GMT). But as you all know, you can join us in advance for the build-up. Till then, take care and goodbye!
Riyan Parag is the Player of the Match for his half-century and for his outstanding show on the field as well. He says that he is satisfied after his innings as the staff is backing him and he is paying it back. Adds that he loves pressure and it just gives him a chance to showcase his abilities. Tells that he had a chat with Sangakkara and they felt 140 was defendable. On his catches, he says that practicing has helped him to stay calm and take those catches with ease.
Sanju Samson the skipper of Rajasthan says that it's a really great win, after their 15 overs, Riyan Parag did well to guide them to a good total. Says that they have always backed Riyan and it was good for him to show the world his explosive batting. Mentions that they were 10-15 runs short, and he thinks 150/160 was a good score, and it was a two-paced wicket and there was no dew as well. Adds that they always knew they had batting till the end and they were waiting for something like this for the middle-order to step up. Says that the teams that are chasing 200 runs they come out with only one gear, but then when they are chasing a below-par total it's all about putting pressure. Concludes by saying that the entire is team understanding and they are getting along well.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
Kuldeep Sen is up for a chat. He says that he fell down in the nets and due to that, he missed out in between. Adds that he was watching the first innings and he saw the ball was gripping and Samson told him to bowl with variations. Tells that the chat was just to bowl on a good length.
Faf du Plessis, the skipper of Bangalore, says it is a similar pitch as the last game, with inconsistent bounce. Says 130 was a par score but dropped catches made it difficult. Adds that the basics of cricket weren't there, the top 4 need to bat throughout but they failed. On Virat Kohli opening, he says that they discussed it before the match and great players go through this type of phase and they know, he is a fantastic cricketer and he hopes he gets his confidence soon.
Rajasthan loves batting first it seems! Losing the toss is surely a blessing in disguise for Rajasthan! This is now the third consecutive game that they have successfully defended. They had over 200 runs on the board in the previous two games, but this time they had just over 140 runs. It's been an exceptional bowling performance from Rajasthan! It all started with Prasidh Krishna grabbing the wicket of Kohli and then Kuldeep Sen following up with back-to-back wickets and from there on it was all going down hill for Bangalore. Rajasthan did well to pick up wickets at regular intervals and with that, they kept mounting the pressure on the opposition. Ravichandran Ashwin grabbed 3 wickets in his spell, while Kuldeep Sen ended with 4 wickets by his name. Rajasthan have won this royal affair and have moved to the top of the table.
Bangalore did make a change at the top-order and they got Virat Kohli to open the batting. But that did not work in their favour. They lost 4 wickets in the first ten overs for just 58 runs! Shahbaz Ahmed and Wanindu Hasaranga did play a few lusty blows and might have given a slight ray of hope to Bangalore but they perished and could not carry on till the end. Riyan Parag went on to score over 20 runs after he was dropped in the penultimate over in the first innings and that probably has made the difference here. A tough loss for Bangalore in the end.
A comfortable victory for Rajasthan! Yes, you read that right! Rajasthan have defended the lowest total of this season and have come out on top comfortably. Batting woes for Bangalore continue and they have now lost two games in a row, while Rajasthan have won their third consecutive game and have moved to the top of the table!
