Virat Kohli No Look Six in RCB vs CSK: After conceding a disappointing loss in their last game, the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have come back strongly in the ongoing match against Chennai Super Kings. The Virat Kohli-led suffered a heartening 9-wicket defeat at the hands of Kolkata in their opening match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 Phase 2.
After losing the toss and being asked to bat first on a belter of a Sharjah wicket, Royal Challengers Bangalore opening pair of skipper Virat Kohli and Devdutt Padikkal got their team off to a blazing start at the top. Virat even smacked an incredible no look six that went right out of the Sharjah Cricket Stadium off a delivery from Shardul Thakur. It is a short ground as the massive hit from the RCB captain went towards a distance of nearly 87 metre.
After that disappointing performance with the bat where they got bundled out for just 92 runs against Kolkata Knight Riders, RCB desperately wanted to get off to a brilliant start here against CSK. Thus, both Devdutt Padikkal and Virat Kohli made their intentions quite clear going after the CSK bowlers right from the word go. The opening duo smashed a wonderful total of 55 runs in the first six overs of the powerplay. It will be really interesting to see whether the RCB team management makes some changes in the batting line-up after this power-packed start.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore are currently placed at the third spot on the points table with five wins from eight matches so far in IPL 2021. On the other hand, the Chennai Super Kings occupies the second position with a total of six victories from their eight games in the ongoing edition of the tournament.
