Royal Challengers Bangalore advances to Qualifier 2 thanks to Rajat Patidar’s
Rajat Patidar hit his first century in the Indian Premier League (IPL) to help Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) advance to the Qualifier 2 match against Rajasthan Royals in Ahmedabad on Friday.
Many large clubs have struggled to maintain pressure and performances this season, but not RCB, who have fought their way to what is effectively a semi-final match against Rajasthan Royals.
Gujarat Titans, who have been on a roll this year, will meet the winner of Qualifier 2. Rajat Patidar, the right-handed No 3 batsman, led Royal Challengers Bangalore to a massive score of 207/4 on Wednesday night, hitting more than half of the runs himself. Rajat Patidar smashed seven sixes and twelve fours in 54 balls to help his team win the match.
The toss-winning team bats first, while the opposing team bowls; nevertheless, both teams bat and bowl alternately. Winning and losing are two qualities of cricket that have made it both fascinating and dangerous. Whenever a batsman hits the ball for a run, it is referred to as a “through ball.”
