IPL 2020, RCB vs KKR: RCB Player Ratings
Devdutt Padikkal: 7/10
Padikkal was fluent right from the very first over and looked to keep things ticking throughout his 23-ball 32. The southpaw played a rather unattractive shot to get out, but his little cameo at the top of the order played a big role in RCB reaching 194. He dropped a difficult catch that would've dismissed Andre Russell.
Aaron Finch: 7/10
Finch was a tad bogged down by the nature of the pitch, but ended his innings on a respectable 47 off 37. The Australian was dropped by Nagarkoti early on, and although it wasn't his most convincing performance, he showed signs of returning to form. He spilled an easy catch in the deep.
Virat Kohli: 7/10
Kohli's 28-ball 33 may not have been the flashiest innings as he scored just 1 boundary off an edge, but he handed over the strike to De Villiers smartly. He also rotated his bowlers expertly, which is something that we haven't seen from the Indian captain very often in the past.
AB de Villiers: 9.5/10
De Villiers was masterful on the night, and seemed like he was batting on an entirely different pitch. The South African scored 73* off just 33 balls, and was severe on all the KKR bowlers. His innings, apart from a smart run-out he effected, ensured that he walked away with the Man of the Match award.
Shivam Dube: 5/10
Dube had absolutely nothing to do in this game, so he walks away with a standard rating.
Chris Morris: 8/
Morris has now taken 5 wickets in just 2 IPL 2020 games, and his addition has already been invaluable to the RCB side. The South African finished with figures of 2/17 in his 4 overs, with the wickets of Cummins and Nagarkoti to his name.
Washington Sundar: 9/10
Sundar was splendid in the middle overs as he choked the KKR batsmen with his unrelenting accuracy. The off-spinner picked up the wickets of Eoin Morgan and Nitish Rana while conceding just 20 runs in his 4 overs.
Isuru Udana: 7/10
Udana had the highest economy rate among RCB bowlers as he conceded 19 runs in his 2 overs, but captured the prize scalp of Russell just when the West Indian threatened to take the game deep. The Sri Lankan was introduced very late into the attack, but still managed to make an impact.
Mohammed Siraj: 7/10
Brought in to shore up the bowling unit on a small ground, Siraj dismissed Tripathi and took the catch to dismiss Russell. The pacer has bowled with fire in IPL 2020, with his short ball surprising even the best of batsmen.
Navdeep Saini: 8/10
Saini put in another assured performance, conceding just 17 runs in his 3 overs while picking up the important wicket of Banton. The RCB spearhead's consistency and aggression are what make this bowling lineup great.
Yuzvendra Chahal: 8.5/10
Chahal was superb against KKR after a couple of wicketless games, and bowled out after giving away a mere 12 runs. The wicket of Dinesh Karthik was an added bonus, and he looked threatening throughout his restrictive spell.
