Chasing 178 for victory, Padikkal (101 not out off 52 balls) and Kohli (72 not out off 47 balls) toyed with the RR attack from the word go to reach 181 for no loss in 16.3 overs.

2021 IPL latest news

On a good batting surface, Royals managed a total which may be 25 runs short but credit for the decent score goes to a counter-attacking effort from all-rounder Shivam Dube (46 off 32 balls) which stemmed the rot and big-hits from Tewatia (40 off 23 balls) that helped them get past 175-run mark.

Dube smashed two sixes and five fours and with Riyan Parag (25 off 15 balls) giving him good support, added 66 runs for the fifth wicket off only 6.2 overs to give his team's toal some semblance of respectability.

While the giant all-rounder was comfortable playing at "home", using the pace of deliveries, the profligate top-order of Royals once again flattered to deceive along with their skipper Sanju Samson, who has been "consistently inconsistent".

It took Dube's impressive effort to lend some muscle to the Royals' rickety-looking scorecard.

For RCB, Mohammed Siraj's (3/27 in 4 overs) off-cutter first-up cleaned Jos Buttler (8) and Manan Vohra (7) , with another atrocious shot selection off Kyle Jamieson (1/28 in 4 overs), might have ensured a lengthy spell for himself in the dug-out.

IPL 2021, RCB vs RR: PITCH REPORT

We may witness yet another run-feast at Wankhede.

Here's what Simon Doull said about today's pitch.

Nice and hard. The ball comes through really nicely. The quicks have had a some success, been a bit of swing and movement. On pitches either side (6 and 8) we've had some turn as well. As it's drying out through the tournament we may see some turn. There's a nice breeze blowing across that may keep the dew away. Hope it stays away. 185-190... Put them on the board and you may be able to defend it.


Felt like home at RCB since day one, says Maxwell

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) all-rounder Glenn Maxwell said that he has felt at home at the franchise since day one of being here in India.
 
Maxwell who had a torrid time with the bat in the last few seasons of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has managed to change his fortunes in the ongoing season as he has registered 176 runs in three matches.
 
"The conditions are a bit different here at the Wankhede. There have been some high scores scored here, so for our batting group, it is going to be exciting if we can get going and continue to add to those high totals. I felt like I have been right at home since day one, the coaching staff have been extremely supportive so have the players, it has been great fun so far," said Maxwell in a video posted on the official Twitter handle of RCB.
 
RCB has managed to win all three games in the ongoing season and it will next take on Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede Stadium on Thursday.
 
"It is just about taking one of the responsibilities of Virat's shoulders. He has got a lot of things to do out there, to sort of control what fielders need to be at what positions is one thing he does not have to worry about," said Maxwell.

 

Playing with Kohli gets the best out of any cricketer, says Sundar

Bowling all-rounder Washington Sundar has impressed one and all with his performances in the last few months. Be it with the ball in hand or the bat, the youngster has made match-winning contributions.
 
After a good time with the national team -- starting with his Test debut against Australia at the Gabba -- Sundar is now looking to make it count for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL).
 
In an interaction with ANI, Washington opened up about his bond with skipper Virat Kohli, his hopes from the RCB unit in the 14th edition of the IPL, and why he chose to name his pet 'Gabba'.
 
"I think Virat has been helping me a lot on different occasions. The fact that I have been playing closely with him for the last 4-5 years has done wonders for me. I can see him closely and see how he goes about different scenarios both on and off the field, what he does to be what he is right now, so many things I have learnt from him over the years, that has definitely helped me become a better cricketer," said Sundar.

IPL 2021, Match 16: RCB vs RR preview

Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers will be the cynosure of all eyes again when Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) take on Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Thursday at the Wankhede Stadium.
 
Both hard-hitting batsmen have been the driving force behind RCB moving to the top of the IPL points table and, against a weak RR bowling attack missing Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes, they would be raring to go big again.
 
However, RCB captain Virat Kohli will be looking to bat long and get a big score, something that has eluded him in the first three matches.
 
He scored 33 runs in the first two matches before being dismissed for just five in the third. This will be a good opportunity for him to bat out and return to big runs.
 
For RR, the challenge will be big against a power-packed RCB batting that starts with the Kohli-Devdutt Padikkal duo and goes on till late.
 
RR's batting has also flopped. Skipper Sanju Samson got off to a good start to the tournament with a century against Punjab Kings but he has since been guilty of throwing his wicket away with reckless shots in the subsequent matches.
 
Add to that, their England all-rounder Liam Livingstone has already left the camp citing bubble fatigue making their overseas options further limited.
 
"Liam Livingstone has left the squad and has returned to England due to bubble fatigue," a statement from RR said.
 
Chris Morris and Mustafizur Rahman will have to bowl really well to keep RCB batting in check. It is an uphill task but one they will have to do if they are to allow their strong batting comprising Jos Buttler, Samson, Morris and David Miller to make a match of it.
