Rajasthan Royals’ Prasidh Krishna had become successful in denting Royal Challengers Bangalore as he dismissed Virat Kohli in second over of the game.
Kohli had to depart for just 7 runs, an undesirable situation at such crucial stage. Rajat Patidar and Glenn Maxwell are currently on the crease to shoulder the heavy responsibilities of winning Qualifier 2 at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.
Earlier, Sanju Samson won the toss and opted to bowl first to challenge RCB. Speaking at the toss, Samson said, “We will bowl first. The wicket is a bit sticky and hopefully, it will help our bowlers first-up. Yesterday we had a good practice session. Everyone is happy and excited about the game. Emotionally everyone is connected to the team and the franchise. Important to keep calm and cut off the noise, trust yourself and just another game of cricket. No changes for us.”
