In the Royale battle, it’s the Royals wearing Red and Gold overhauled the Royals challenge as RCB regained the top spot in the points table after a comfortable 8 wickets win against Rajasthan Royals. The best thing that happened to RCB in this match was captain Kohli coming back into form. After struggling for runs in the first 3 games, he finally joined the runs chart with a sublime 72. Twitter erupted as soon as he got back into scoring runs as the fans waited for quite a long time to see vintage and classic Kohli stuff.
Before that RCB bowlers had a great day with ball as they restricted Rajasthan Royals to only 154 after the latter won the toss and decided to bat first. Yuzvendra Chahal was the star of the show in the bowling with his spell of 3-24 while Isuru Udana also got a couple of wickets. Apart from Kohli scoring a 50 in the chase, it was RCB opener Devdutt Padikkal who made the job rather easy for Kohli and others with his brisk 63 from 45.
With this win, RCB got up to the top spot in IPL 2020 for the short while as the winner of the contest between DC and KKR will snatch it away from them. They now have 6 points in 4 matches. Here are some of the best Twitter reactions from the match one of the first double header day of IPL 2020.
Form is temporary class is forever ! @imVkohli however I haven’t seen this boy out of form since last 8 years which is unbelievable actually ! Paddikal looks really good need to bat together and see who hits longer 😜

This young man, Devdutt Padikkal, is going to give cricket lovers a lot of joy. Would love to see his work ethic and approach going ahead because that is what will take him places.
