Anushka Sharma Reacts To RCB Vs MI Match In IPL 2020, Writes “Too Exciting A Game For A Pregnant Lady”

Highlights:

  • Anushka Sharma reacted to RCB’s Super Over win over Mumbai Indians
  • Anushka added to her Instagram story, hailing RCB after the win in IPL 2020
  • RCB records their second win the Indian Premier League 2020 being held in UAE

Indian Premier League franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore nearly threw the match away against Mumbai India but managed to get over the line only in the Super Over thanks to the brilliance of the young bowler Navdeep Saini.

Virat Kohli’s team was humiliated by Kings XI Punjab in the previous game of IPL 2020 but the batting department bounced back and what a way to bounce back indeed. RCB put up an imposing target on the board. The team led by Virat Kohli should have cantered to a win but were left sweating thanks to some brilliant batting from Ishan Kishan and Kieron Pollard.

As the match went into the Super Over, AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli got the team over the line, having been set a paltry target of 8 runs. Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma who is married to RCB skipper Virat Kohli took it to Instagram to express her relief, saying the RCB vs MI encounter was “too exciting a game for a pregnant lady”.

Anushka posted split images of Kohli and de Villiers sharing a hug after the win via the Super Over, the teams congratulating each other and the RCB bench celebrating their second victory in three games in IPL 2020.

Royal Challengers Bangalore posted 201 runs on the scoreboard at a loss of 3 wickets with three of its players smashing half centuries – Devdutt Padikkal (54), Aaron Finch (52) and AB de Villiers (55).

 For the third match running, RCB captain failed to fire scoring a meagre 3 off 11 balls.

Young all-rounder Shivam Dube hit a quickfire 27 off 10 balls to push RCB past 200.

Mumbai Indians’ chase did not get a good start as skipper Rohit Sharma (8) and Quinton de Kock (14) struggled to get going and were dismissed very early in the inning. Isuru Udana sent Suryakumar Yadav packing for a duck soon after.

Mumbai Indians were surrounded by problems at 39 for three but then came in Ishan Kishan.

The 22-year-old smashed superlative 99, including two fours and nine sixes. Kishan and Kieron Pollard put on a partnership of 119 runs for the fifth wicket to bring Mumbai back from the dead.

Needing just 18 runs to win from the final over, Ishan Kishan smacked back-to-back sixes, bringing down the equation to 5 off 2 balls. However, batting on 99, the youngster went for another big hit but fell short of the boundary rope and the ball landed directly into the hands of the fielder, an agonisingly one run short of a deserved century.

Pollard, who ended with 60 off just 24 balls, hit a boundary off the final ball to take the match into a Super Over.
