    Riyan Parag – Man Of The Match

    “A bit of satisfaction. The Royals have shown faith in me for the last three years, and I am paying them back bit by bit. I love pressure and I am just showcasing my abilities. During the time-out, Sanga came out and we agreed that 140 was a good total on this wicket. We decided to go big in the last two overs. I wanted to target (Wanindu) Hasaranga in his second over, but we lost wickets, and so I had to strategize and go after (Josh) Hazlewood and Harshal (Patel)."

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 11:45 PM

    Kuldeep Sen Returned Figures Of 4/20

    “I missed the last few matches with an injury at the nets, it's coming up well now. Watching the first innings and the way (Mohammed) Siraj and Harshal (Patel) bowled, I realized that the ball was stopping from a good length, so Sanju told me to hit the deck hard, the plan was to keep it on a good length. We didn't want to concede easy runs."

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 11:22 PM

    RR Win!

    Harshal Patel hits the ball at long-on and see who takes the catch. It's Riyan Parag the star of the this match. This is his fourth catch of the game. Rajasthan Royals win the match by 29 runs and go top of IPL 2022 table.

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 11:13 PM

    RCB Need 30 In 6

    Harshal Patel will be on strike. A win seems just a matter of short time for Rajasthan Royals. They have bowled brilliantly today. 

    RCB 115/9 (19)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 11:08 PM

    Siraj Is Out!

    17.4 - Mohammed Siraj has been dismissed by Prasidh Krishna. RCB are nine down, while they need 38 in 14. RR are only one wicket away from a win.

    Four runs came off the over and a wicket. RCB need 38 off last 12 balls.

    RCB 107/9 (18)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 11:01 PM


    16.4 - Wanindu Hasaranga is out! He has been caught and bowled by Kuldeep Sen. RCB need 43 in 20 now.

    Nine runs came off the over and a wicket. RCB need 42 in 18. 

    RCB 103/8 (17)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 10:56 PM

    What A Catch!

    15.4 - Riyan Parag can do nothing wrong today. Shahbaz Ahmed mishit a Ravichandran Ashwin delivery in front of long-off where Parag ran forward and took a really good catch. This was his second catch that was taken with a dive and third catch overall.

    Only four runs came off the over and a wicket. Ashwin finishes his quota of four overs with figures of 3/17.

    RCB 94/7 (16)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 10:51 PM

    RR Hold Edge

    RCB need 55 runs in 30 balls. Required run rate gets to 11 runs per over. This game seems to be slipping out of RCB's hands.

    RCB 90/6 (15)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 10:48 PM

    Can Shahbaz Ahmed Do A Riyan Parag?

    Shahbaz Ahmed has been good with the bat this season. Can he repeat his heroics today against Rajasthan Royals? He needs to do something what Riyan Parag did in the first innings for RR. RCB need 62 in 36.

    RCB 83/6 (14)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 10:38 PM

    Karthik Is Run Out!

    12.4 - A miscommunication at the middle and Dinesh Karthik has lost his wicket on a run out. Shahbaz Ahmed has sold his partner down the river. He nudged the ball in front of short mid-wicket and asked for a quick single before changing his mind to see a puzzled Karthik standing at the middle of the pitch. Even if Yuzvendra Chahal was late in collecting the ball and dislodging the bails, Karthik was short of his crease. 

    Only five runs came in the over and a wicket.

    RCB 72/6 (13)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 10:30 PM


    11.4 - Not in the previous over but Suyash Prabhudessai gets out in this one Ravichandran Ashwin gets his wicket. Needless to mention that RCB are in big trouble.

    Only three runs came off the over and a wicket. RCB need 78 in 48.

    RCB 67/5 (12)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 10:27 PM

    RR Lost Review

    Yuzvedra Chahal's last delivery off the over hit Suyash Prabhudessai's back pad. Umpire was unconvinced but RR decided to review it. The ball was found to be leaving off stump by a fair margin.  

    RCB 64/4 (11)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 10:21 PM

    150th IPL Wicket For Ashwin

    Ravichandran Ashwin and his variety of balls are just amazing! He gets the wicket of Rajat Patidar (16 off 16). It was a carrom ball that rattled the stumps. With it, Ashwin completes 150 wickets in IPL. 

    RCB 58/4 (10)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 10:14 PM

    Poor Ball

    Kuldeep Sen bowled a short ball down the leg to Rajat Patidar and the right-handed batsman just guided it for a SIX over square leg fence. This will take off some pressure from RCB.

    RCB 55/3 (9) 

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 10:10 PM

    Poor Captaincy

    Sanju Samson could have given an over to any of his main bowler and piled misery on RCB, but he gave the ball to Daryl Mitchell and both RCB batters Shahbaz Ahmed and Rajat Patidar comfortably collected seven runs off it by rotating strike.

    RCB 45/3 (8)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 10:00 PM

    Another Wicket

    6.3 - Kuldeep Sen has dismissed Glenn Maxwell for a first-ball duck. He is on a hat-trick now. RCB 37/3 (6.3)

    Kuldeep misses a hat-trick but it was a brilliant over from him. He gave away only one run and claimed two wickets in it.

    RCB 38/3 (7)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 9:58 PM


    6.2- Brilliant game plan and RR have got another wicket. Faf du Plessis departs on 23 off 21. Kuldeep kept a short cover in place and Faf hit the ball exactly there. RCB 37/2 (6.2)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 9:58 PM

    Catch Dropped

    Rajat Patidar hit a Ravichandran Ashwin delivery hard back to the bowler. Ashwin got his hand in the line of the ball. He failed to take the catch but certainly saved one boundary.  

    RCB 37/1 (6)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 9:54 PM

    Du Plessis Looks Solid

    Faf du Plessis is playing well today. RCB just need one of their batsmen to score big to win this match. On the other hand, RR have to make sure they don't let their opposition build partnerships. 

    RCB 30/1 (5)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 9:44 PM


    Out of nine innings in IPL 2022, Virat Kohli has been dismissed in the first ten balls six times. This better speaks about the pathetic form he is going through this season.

    RCB 15/1 (3) 

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 9:37 PM


    1.4 - Virat Kohli eventually runs out of his luck. The story gets worse for him. He departs on 9 off 10. It was a good bouncer from Prasidh Krishna and the ball hit the toe end of Kohli's bat before Riyan Parag took a good catch diving forward at backward point.

    Only one runs came off the over and a wicket.

    RCB 10/1 (2)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 9:34 PM

    Lucky Kohli

    Virat Kohli rode his luck in the first over. His hit fell short of Daryl Mitchell before he could edged Trent Boult's deliveries twice to survive. 

    RCB 9/0 (1)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 9:30 PM

    Second Innings Underway

    Virat Kohli takes the strike, Trent Boult bowls to him. Faf du Plessis is at the non-striker's end. Here we go! 

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 9:15 PM

    Fifty For Riyan Parag

    19.4 - A SIX over and Riyan Parag races to his second IPL fifty.

    19.6 - Another SIX to finish the over. Riyan Parag has delivered for RR when it mattered the most. The match is not over yet but the youngster has definitely proved what he is capable of with a fighting knock of 56 not out in 31 balls.

    RR 144/8 (20)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 9:08 PM

    Prasidh Krishna Run Out!

    18.4 - Prasidh Krishna loses his wicket in a bid to bring Riyan Parag back on strike. It was suicidal running but you cannot blame him in such a situation in the game where every dot ball is piling misery on Rajasthan Royals.

    12 runs came off Josh Hazlewood's over. He finishes his quota of four over with figures of 2/19.  

    RR 126/8 (19)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 9:07 PM

    Boundary After 44 Balls

    18.1 - A SIX over extra cover from Riyan Parag and this is the first boundary for RR in the last 45 balls. Such has been RCB's dominance with the ball on the field.

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 8:59 PM


    17.1 - Virat Kohli has taken a beautiful catch at short mid-wicket to cut short Trent Boult's stint at the crease. Good planning, good bowling and good fielding. RCB are on top of their game today.

    Only four runs came off Harshal Patel's over and a wicket. 

    RR 114/7 (18)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 8:52 PM

    Hetmyer Is Out!

    15.2 - Shimron Hetmyer decides to take on Wanindu Hasaranga but loses his wicket in the process. This is brilliant from RCB, they have been really tight with their bowling today and this saw RR batters playing false shots for boundaries and losing wickets.

    Hasaranga ends his quota of four overs with figures of 2/23.  

    RR 104/6 (16)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 8:41 PM


    14.2 - Here is the inevitable. Daryll Mitchell is out! He was not looking comfortable and he finally departs on 16 off 24. It was in the slot but the Kiwi batsman could only hole it out to Glenn Maxwell at long-on. Josh Hazlewood gets his second wicket tonight. RR 99/5 (14.2)

    Not a wicket-maiden, but a one-run over with a wicket this time for Hazlewood.

    RR 100/5 (15)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 8:41 PM

    RR Need Boundaries

    Though no wicket has fallen in the last 27 balls, RCB have made sure the scoring rate of RR remains under control. They have conceded just 31 runs since the wicket of Sanju Samson, the last wicket to fall.

    RR 99/4 (14) 

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 8:38 PM

    Good Bowling

    RCB have given only 12 runs off the last two overs. No boundary has come off the last 14 balls.

    RR 95/4 (13)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 8:29 PM


    14 runs came off Shahbaz Ahmed's third over. Riyan Parag is playing well today. He is getting his shots from the middle of the bat. The 20-year-old hit Shahbaz for a SIX and a FOUR in the 11th over. Is he the person to rescue RR tonight?  

    RR 83/4 (11)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 8:23 PM

    Samson Is Out!

    9.3 - Here is the big fish for Wanindu Hasaranga and RCB. Sanju Samson throws his wicket away after a well-made 27 of 21. He had attempted a reverse-sweep on the previous ball and missed to connect, so Hasaranga bowled a googly this time. Samson missed his reverse-sweep against but this time his stumps were disturbed eventually.

    Only two runs came off the over and a wicket.

    RR 69/4 (10)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 8:17 PM

    RCB In Control

    Despite some big hits from Sanju Samson, RCB have kept RR in check. The latter's scoring rate is only 7.44 which would not trouble RCB much. If they can manage to get the wicket of Samson here, RR will be in big trouble.

    RR 67/3 (9)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 8:12 PM

    Samson Special!

    Sanju Samson is looking terrific tonight. He hit Shahbaz Ahmed for two consecutive SIXES in the 8th over. He has kept Rajasthan Royals going despite losing Jos Buttler early in this innings.

    RR 65/3 (8)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 8:03 PM

    RCB Dominate Powerplay

    The first powerplay entirely belonged to RCB. They bowled according to the plan and got three wickets in the phase despite the pitch looking like a belter. On the other hand, Sanju Samson is looking extremely good today. 

    RR 43/3 (6)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 7:54 PM

    Back-to-back WICKETS

    While Mohammed Siraj got the wicket of Ravichandran Ashwin (17 off 9) on the last ball of the fourth over, Josh Hazlewood has got the wicket of in-form Jos Buttler (8 off 9) now on the first ball of fifth over.

    It's a wicket-maiden from Hazlewood. RR 33/3 (5)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 7:47 PM

    Tight Bowling

    RCB bowlers have been good with their line and length so far. The previous over from Josh Hazlewood too was a tight over. Jos Buttler was lucky to survive on a close affair as an inside edge from him missed his stumps and raced to boundary line. 

    RR 25/1 (3)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 7:40 PM


    1.4 - RCB taste the first blood too early in the game. Devdutt Padikkal is out on run-a-ball 7. It was bowled full on the stumps by Mohammed Siraj after Padikkal shuffled across to play the ball on the leg side. The RR opener missed to get any wood on the ball and was caught plumb in front of the stumps. Umpire gave it out but Padikkal used a review to see it getting wasted.

    RR 19/1 (2)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 7:30 PM

    It's Game Time

    Jos Buttler is on strike, Devdutt Padikkal is at the other end. Oh, here is the surprise element from RCB, Shahbaz Ahmed will bowl the first over.

    Just five runs came off the over. Sarfaraz bowled it tight and both RR openers decided not to take any risk at the start.

    RR 5/0 (1)

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 7:21 PM

    DK Vs Yuzi

    Dinesh Karthik has been one of IPL 2022's top finishers. With a strike rate of 200, Dinesh Karthik is enjoying his stint with RCB but the former Kolkata Knight Riders captain will be wary of the 'threat' he faces from Yuzvendra Chahal. The leg-spinner, who is in red-hot form for RR, has dismissed Karthik thrice in nine IPL innings.

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 7:11 PM

    RCB Opt To Bowl

    Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Faf du Plessis has won the toss and opted to bowl first against Rajasthan Royals.

  • 26 Apr 2022 / 6:54 PM

    Tale of Openers

    If Jos Buttler has been destructive, Devdutt Padikkal will have fond memories of RCB when he steps out to open the innings for Rajasthan Royals today. The elegant left-hander gained his IPL stripes turning out for RCB in the previous seasons. Reckoned as one of the leading white-ball openers in India, Padikkal will be up against Harshal Patel and Mohammed Siraj, two bowlers who have being doing well in the powerplays/death overs. RR head coach Kumar Sangakkara has been full of praise for Padikkal and Jos Buttler. (see video)
