Last night, Royal Challengers Bangalore won their home game by beating Sunrisers Hyderabad by 14 runs. The match was a ‘do-or-die’ situation for the players of Royal Challengers Bangalore. However, after winning the match last night, the team has jumped from second last position to the fifth position. RCB is still in for competing with other teams to qualify for the playoffs.
AB de Villiers stole all the limelight away after his impeccable performance in both the innings last night.
In the first innings, AB de Villiers took away the match by storm with his brilliant knock. He scored a quick 69 off 39 balls. He gave a power-packed performance last night and hit many thrilling shots including 12 fours and 1 six. However, that one six was a monster six. It went straight outside the ground and left everyone stunned.
The ball was delivered by Basil Thampi, AB de Villiers made the space, moved around and hit the ball so powerfully that it went straight outside M.Chinaswamy Stadium. It might have landed on something or someone outside the ground. That six was the trademark shot of AB de Villiers.
As soon as AB smashed the ball outside the stadium, the chants of “AB” echoed around the ground. AB de Villiers also earned the Man of the match award for his impeccable performance last night.
