Former Royal Challengers Bangalore player and one of the legends of the game, AB de Villiers, reacted to the team’s win over Lucknow Super Giants in Eliminator of IPL 2022. The Faf du Plessis-led franchise won the game by 14 runs to qualify for Qualifier 2, where they will take on Rajasthan Royals.
ABD took to Twitter and wrote – “RCB RCB RCB.” Batting first, the Bangalore-based franchise scored 207, with Rajat Patidar scoring an unbeaten 112, including 12 fours and 7 sixes. The South African star also heaped massive praise on the 28-year-old batter from Madhya Pradesh. “Rajat Patidar, WOW.”
They defended the score smartly with bowling contributions from Josh Hazlewood and Harshal Patel. The two turned the tide in their team’s favor when KL Rahul was going great guns for Lucknow. Earlier, RCB became the fourth team to qualify for the playoffs after Mumbai Indians thumped Delhi Capitals in their last league match.
