Here are all the statistical highlights from Royal Challengers Bangalore’s big win in CSK vs RCB.
Royal Challengers Bangalore is continuing their good run in IPL 2020 with their 4th win in six matches as they got the better of Chennai Super Kings by a huge 37-run margin. Virat Kohli’s unbeaten 90 off only 52 balls played a key role in taking RCB to 169/4 in the 20 overs. CSK lost their opening pair to Washington Sundar in the powerplay itself and struggled to get going from there. Super Kings reached 96/3 in 15 overs while RCB were on 95/4 at the same stage but the heavy required rate saw CSK crumble to 132/8.

A rare duck for ABD in IPL:

4 – AB de Villiers has been dismissed for a duck on nine occasions in the IPL out of which four came against Chennai Super Kings only. Gautam Gambhir (v MI), Rohit Sharma (v RCB), Kedar Jadhav (v KXIP) and Dinesh Karthik (v SRH) are the other players to bag as many as four ducks against as opponent in IPL.
T20 Milestones galore for players of both the teams:
