The rise of Royal Challengers Bangalore from the bottom of the IPL point table to the second position and then the final after seven years is an inspirational story. The Bangalore side in their last to attempt in 2009 and 2011 ended as runners up, but this year with team spirit is looking solid to win their maiden IPL trophy.
RCB in the first qualifier defeated Gujarat Lions at Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Now they will meet the winner of Gujarat Lions vs Sunrisers Hyderabad match.
Off the field, the entire unit enjoys together and on one such recent instance, aggressive skipper Kohli, Mandeep Singh and explosive opener Chris Gayle were seen shaking legs on bhangra beats.
The RCB team notched up an empathic victory over Gujarat Lions, even after losing their top half and upper middle order. Virat Kohli,who scored 919 in this season of IPL, walked back to the pavilion for naught.
After his departure batsmen like KL Rahul and Chris Gayle failed to stay at the crease. Stuart Binny was looking solid and was swinging his at Gujarat Lions bowler at his will. But Ravindra Jadeja’s fourth delivery of the 10th over seems struck at Binny’s pad, Jadeja appealed and umpire Kumar Dharmsena convinced that the delivery struck at Binny’s pad and raised his finger. After Binny’s departure, the win was looking a distant dream. But AB de Villiers stayed there and Iqbal Abdulla, an unlikely batsman played second fiddle while De Villiers played his full range of trick shots.
A partnership of 91 between de Villiers and Abdulla ensured RCB a four wickets victory. After winning this match RCB celebrated vociferously on the field and in the team hotel they did Bhangra.
