Royal Challengers Bangalore move to 5th place on the table after their 24-run win against Punjab Kings at the PCA Stadium in Mohali. The visitors, batting first, posted a below-par total of 174 runs on the board. Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis scripted a plethora of records after their fifty-plus runs innings.
In the reply, Mohammed Siraj spread his magic as the right-arm seamer took a four-wicket haul to take the purple cap. Jitesh Sharma was the only hope for Punjab till the last, but the 29-year-old failed to finish the match for his side, and in the end, PBKS fell short of 24 runs. Several cricketers took to social media platforms to praise Virat Kohli for his leadership and also wrote highly about Mohammed Siraj. Virat Kohli wrote, “Brilliant spell by Miyan and a solid win today, we keep going.”
Here are some of the other cricketers’ reactions.
RCB will next face RR on April 23, while Punjab will square off against MI on April 22.
