Friday, 16th April 2021

The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) were led by Virat Kohli and defeated SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) by six runs in a thrilling match at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Wednesday. RCB scored 149/8 from their 20 overs on a tough batting surface. RCB's new recruit Glenn Maxwell continued his fine form by scoring his first IPL half-century since 2016 to give his team a fighting chance. SRH lost Wriddhiman Saha early on, but David Warner and Manish Pandey put together a strong second-wicket stand to keep their side in the game. The SRH batsmen, on the other hand, played some rash shots, allowing RCB to claw their way back into the game. In the 17th over, Shahbaz Ahmed took three wickets to turn the game around. The SRH wickets fell like a slew of cards, and they fell six runs short of their target.

IPL 2021 Points Table

RCB climbed to the top of the IPL 2021 Points Table with this victory, having won their first two games. The Virat Kohli-led team has four points from two games, while the Delhi Capitals (DC) are in second place with two points from one game. Mumbai Indians (MI), the defending champions, are in third place on the table, having won and lost one game each. Punjab Kings (PBKS) have the same number of points as Mumbai Indians, but they are in fourth place with two points from one game due to their lower Net Run Rate (NRR). KKR are in fifth place on the table after losing to Mumbai in their second game. The last three teams in the standings, Rajasthan Royals (RR), SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH), and Chennai Super Kings (CSK), have yet to open their accounts.

The Fight for the Orange Cap.

Glenn Maxwell's match-winning fifty propelled him past Punjab Kings captain KL Rahul (91 runs) and Mumbai Indians' Suryakumar Yadav (87 runs) in the Orange Cap race to fourth place with 98 runs from two matches. Manish Pandey of the SRH, who scored 38 runs in the game, moved into third place with 99 runs from two games. Nitish Rana of the Kolkata Knight Riders has retained the Orange Cap after scoring 137 runs in the first two innings. Sanju Samson, the captain of the Rajasthan Royals, is in second place with 119 runs from just one match. When Samson bats against the Delhi Capitals on Thursday, he will have a chance to go to the top of the list.
