Dubai: In the 33rd match of IPL 2020, Rajasthan Royals (RR) suffered a loss in the last over by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Rajasthan lost the match by 7 wickets. Rajasthan Royals captain Steve Smith said that it is difficult to digest.
After the match, Smith said, “It is definitely difficult to digest this defeat.” There were de Villiers. We were in the match with those two successive wickets. We could have won the match from there but it was disappointing. I think it was a good score on this slow wicket. We had put in good pressure, but de Villiers played a special innings to give Bangalore the victory.
De Villiers hit three consecutive sixes on Jaydev Unadkat in the 19th over and from here the match slipped from Rajasthan’s hand.
Smith said, ‘We wanted to use Jaydev for the big boundary. Obviously, the boundaries were not too big for de Villiers’.
Let us know that after winning the toss in the match, the team of Rajasthan Royals came out to bat and gave Bangalore a target of 178 runs by losing 6 wickets in 20 overs.
