RCB Have Had A Good Start To Their IPL 2020 Campaign
The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) began their IPL 2020 campaign in style as they beat SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) in their opening encounter of the tournament. However, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) ruthlessly beat them in their second game as KL Rahul smashed a scintillating century for Punjab.
They had one of the most thrilling encounters against Mumbai Indians (MI) in their third game of the IPL 2020 campaign as both the teams finished on an equal score at the end of regulation overs. The game was finally carried forward to a Super Over, wherein, RCB triumphed over Mumbai.
Virat Kohli has been struggling to find his feet in this year’s IPL as a string of low scores has surrounded the RCB skipper this year. AB de Villiers, on the other hand, has been in fine form and has smashed a couple of half-centuries in the first three games of the tournament itself.
