On Tuesday, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) took on Rajasthan Royals (RR) in match 13 of IPL 2022. After opting to bowl, RCB did a good job of slowing down RR’s innings before Jos Buttler’s late flourish helped them reach 169 for three in 20 overs.
In response, RCB got off to a fantastic start with skipper Faf du Plessis and Anuj Rawat but lost wickets quickly in the middle. At one point, RCB was 87 for five, and it appeared that the match had slipped away from them.
But then, Shahbaz Ahmed (45) and Dinesh Karthik (44*) kept their cool to enable RCB to reach the mark with four wickets and five balls remaining.
Meanwhile, in the RCB dressing room, Virat Kohli was seen giving Glenn Maxwell a shoulder massage, which the latter appeared to enjoy based on his expression.
Kohli, on the other hand, made just 5 runs and was run out by his ex-RCB made Yuzvendra. After stepping down as captain at the end of last season, he is yet to make an impact this season.
Maxwell will most likely be available for the team’s next game on April 9 against the Mumbai Indians.
