Royal Challengers Bangalore made a phenomenal start to their IPL 2022 campaign. Put into bat by Punjab Kings’ skipper Mayank Agarwal; the Faf du Plessis-led team scored 205/2 in 20 overs.
The skipper left from the front and amassed 88 of just 57 balls, laced with 7 sixes and 3 fours. Apart from him, Virat Kohli (41 off 29 balls) and Dinesh Karthik (32 off 14 balls) also played aggressive cricket.
Former Chennai Super Kings player Suresh Raina was mighty impressed with the Bangalore-based franchise. In his new role as a commentator, the veteran said – “RCB, This is just a start and picture abhi baaki hai (there is more to come from the RCB),” he said.
He heaped praise on his former India teammate Virat Kohli as well.
“The way Virat Kohli played today, the way he played in the partnership, was fantastic and shows how big player he is,” he added.
