#IPL2022, RCBvsSRH: RCB captain Faf du Plessis reaches the milestone of 300 fours

New Delhi:

 Captain Faf du Plessis’ unbeaten knock of 73 and Wanindu Hasaranga’s five-wicket haul helped Royal Challengers Bangalore beat SunRisers Hyderabad by 67 runs here at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday, and the South African reached a milestone of 300 fours in the league.

The RCB skipper opened for his side and despite losing Virat Kohli for a golden duck early on in the innings managed to help his team achieve a big first-innings total of 192/3 in 20 overs. Faf du Plessis was on a rampage with the bat scoring an unbeaten 73 off just 50 balls hitting eight fours and two sixes and in-process achieved the milestone of 300 fours in the league.

The RCB captain went on to score his 25th half-century in the IPL and his third of the season.

The South African’s knock paved way for an emphatic 67-run win and with this victory, RCB has moved to the fourth spot in the points table with seven wins out off 12 matches. 

Brief scores: 

Royal Challengers Bangalore 192/3 in 20 overs (Faf du Plessis 73, Rajat Patidar 48; Jagadeesha Suchith 2/30, Kartik Tyagi 1/42) vs SunRisers Hyderabad 125/10 in 19.2 overs (Rahul Tripathi 58; Wanindu Hasaranga 5/18, Josh Hazlewood 2/17).
