Dinesh Karthik is admired by Faf du Plessis: Royal Challengers Bangalore’s captain Du Plessis praises Dinesh Karthik. Dinesh Karthik was praised by du Plessis for being an “asset,”. He went on to say RCB would not have won the required points tonight.
After winning the toss for the second time this season, du Plessis lead the opposition to bat first. Bangalore bowlers made the most of a comparably slower surface. However, by a fourth-wicket 83-run partnership between Jos Buttler (70*) and Shimron Hetmyer (42*) the game changed.
“Up until the 18th over, we bowled pretty effectively, and then Jos Buttler got some good shots. With the circumstances and the surface spinning a little, we got a score that we believed was a little above par,” Plessis said.
After a 55-run opening stand between du Plessis (29) and Anuj Rawat (26), the side lost four wickets for only seven runs. “We got off to a good start, but Yuzvendra Chahal bowled brilliantly to get them back in.” But the best part of today for me was our capacity to come back and win games out of nowhere,” du Plessis remarked.
Faf du Plessis clarified the rumours about Shahbaz Ahmed
Faf du Plessis, the captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore, has dispelled rumours about all-rounder Shahbaz Ahmed’s fitness. Ahmed, a slim 27-year-old Bengali cricketer, has now bailed out Royal Challengers two times in a row.
He, RCB’s third-highest run-scorer, has 72 runs in two innings at a strike rate of 156.52, including a game-changing 45 (26) with four fours and three sixes against Rajasthan Royals at Wankhede Stadium tonight.
Also, he found himself in the middle with his team needing 108 runs in 67 balls after coming in to bat at No. 6 ahead of veteran wicket-keeper hitter Dinesh Karthik. Before the pair pulled up a match-winning 32-ball 67-run partnership for the sixth wicket, the equation had been reduced to Bangalore needing 83 runs off 45 balls.
Plessis also spoke on Shahbaz Ahmed” People say he couldn’t hit it far since he’s a small skinny person, but he can smash it a long way.” We didn’t bowl him today due to the wet ball and the presence of a left-hander, but he’ll undoubtedly play a big role this season.”
“You need some amazing characters to bring it out of nowhere, and DK [Dinesh Karthik] is as great a character as you can get.” His calmness under duress is remarkable. “He’s really cool, and he’s a huge benefit to us,” Du Plessis praises Dinesh Karthik.
