This is Devdutt’s third half-century this season and with this he became the first batsman to score 3 fifties in the first 4 matches of his IPL career.
10 batsmen had scored 2 fifties
Before Devdutt, there were at least 10 batsmen in IPL history, who scored 2 fifties in their first 4 matches. But no batsman was able to cross the score of 50 twice in the first four matches till date in this Glamorous League. But in the first IPL match of his career, Devdutt had scored 56 runs in 42 balls against Sunrisers Hyderabad. After this, he was able to score just 1 run against Kings XI Punjab. But against Mumbai Indians, he had a strong performance of 54 runs in 40 balls. After this, he has also hit 63 runs in 45 balls against Rajasthan Royals.
Dubai stadium is liking Devdutt
It is a coincidence that so far RCB played their first three matches at the Dubai Stadium. Where Devdutt did 2 fifty. According to this, the Dubai Stadium was very appealing to them, but now they have proved that all the stadiums are same for them by playing Pachasa while playing the fourth match in Abu Dhabi.
