An outstanding result was achieved by the Rajasthan Royals (RR) team against rivals Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the 39th match of IPL 2022 at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune Tuesday. RR managed to win over RCB by 29 runs and this was the Royals' sixth win in the eight games they have played in the IPL this season.
Behind the promising victory, there was a big contribution from all-rounder RR Riyan Parag. The 20-year-old cricketer recorded 56 and certainly had the full backing of a bowler who did his job well. This allowed Rajasthan to bring home the victory.
After winning the toss, Bangalore captain Faf du Plessis opted to take to the field. In this match, RR lost three wickets in the fifth over of the powerplay, with a score of 33.
However, efforts from RR captain Sanju Samson and all-rounder Daryl Mitchell managed to add 35 for the fourth wicket before finally falling to leg spinner Wanindu Hasaranga in the tenth. The Royals finished with a total under par 144/8. Meanwhile, Parag managed to score half a century in the IPL.
