Yesterday was the last day of head-to-head matches at IPL 2021 and we had a double header at the same time for the first time in the history of this tournament. On the one hand, it was MI vs SRH in IPL Match 55 2021, while on the other side it saw RCB vs DC, and both games ended up providing incredible entertainment for all viewers.
Royal Challengers Bangalore He came back well in his game, allowing just 36 runs in the last 5 overs of DC’s innings, and after that, they stayed to chase 165 runs in 20 overs. RCB got off to a bad start in their innings, leaving them at 6/2 and both starters sent back to the cabin. It wasn’t long before AB de Villiers was also sent back to the cabin, and RCB’s chances of victory were getting slimmer.
The outcome of this game was inconsequential as RCB and Delhi Capitals had already qualified for the IPL 2021 playoffs, but we still ended up watching a fabulous match. Thanks to a fabulous partnership between Srikar Bharat and Glenn maxwell, RCB needed 19 runs in 2 overs and were clearly in the driver’s seat until Anrich Nortje’s fantastic 19 over, where he gave up just 4 runs.

Many twists and turns in the final meant that RCB had to chase 6 runs of the final ball if they wanted to finish as winners. Avesh Khan threw a wide and that meant 5 to get and a limit to tie the game. He threw one last pathetic ball, missing the yorker and throwing a full knee-high pitch. Bharat happily accepted the delivery and deposited it directly on the ground for a maximum.
Until he crossed the line, we had no idea if it was a six or if he was going to be caught at the edge. Once everyone saw the ball go over the ropes, the RCB camp erupted in joy. From AB de Villiers to Virat Kohli and those in support and management, everyone was awake, screaming and jumping even though it didn’t affect the IPL 2021 point table. Look here:
