Rajasthan Royals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore highlights: Leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal displayed great skills to bamboozle opponent batsmen before Jos Buttler struck a commanding 59 as Rajasthan Royals won their first game in IPL 2019 defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore in Jaipur on Tuesday. This was the fourth straight loss for Virat Kohli-led Bangalore team.
Gopal claimed three wickets, including that of Virat Kohli (23) and AB de Villiers (13), conceding just 12 runs in his quota of four overs which won him the man-of-the-match award.
For the RCB, only Parthiv Patel offered some resistance hitting 67 off 41 balls with nine boundaries and six. Marcus Stoinis (31 not out) and Moeen Ali (18) added some valuable runs with Parthiv for the RCB, however, it wasn’t enough.
