Glenn Maxwell held onto an important catch to remove Shivam Dube. The Royal Challengers Bangalore needed to see the back of Dube as he was looking in ominous touch.
Dube was a man on a mission tonight against his old IPL franchise in Rajasthan Royals jersey. When RR was in trouble early on in the match Dube played a counter-attacking knock and gave his side momentum.
He along with Riyan Parag took calculative risks and it paid off. The Rajasthan all-rounder was looking to deposit Kane Richardson in the stand but he completely mistimed the slog.
Glenn Maxwell Takes A Brilliant Diving Catch To Remove Shivam Dube
Richardson bowled an off-cutter which Shivam Dube toe ended towards Glenn Maxwell who was fielding at mid-off. As soon as Richardson saw Maxwell getting under the ball he started celebrating. Maxwell knew he was in business and was ready to take the catch.
Maxwell had to come forward and in the end, dived in front to complete the match. From the reactions from Maxwell, it seemed he had misjudged the ball and was relieved after grabbing the catch.
Meanwhile, Shivam Dube scored 46 from 32 deliveries and struck 5 boundaries and 2 sixes. Talking about Maxwell he will again be keen to contribute when RCB comes out to bat in the run chase. The Rajasthan Royals are presently 157 for 6 after 18 overs and will be pleased after they lost their key batsmen very early.
Furthermore, RCB is unbeaten in IPL 2021 so far and will be looking to make it 4 in a row by winning tonight.
