Rajasthan Royals are placed 7th in the IPL 2021 points table with 2 bitter defeats and just 1 victory so far in their campaign. Their memorable win came against Delhi Capitals when Chris Morris hit the winning runs for the side.
On the other hand, Royal Challengers Bangalore have been in incredible form in the ongoing season. They played 3 games so far and won all three against Mumbai Indians, Sunrisers Hyderabad, and Kolkata Knight Riders.
Rajasthan Royals are locking horns with Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 16th game of the Indian Premier League at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. RCB captain Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to bowl first.
Mohammed Siraj provided an early breakthrough by getting rid of Jos Buttler in the third ball of the third over. Siraj made a mess of Buttler’s stumps and the batsman departed for just 8 runs.
New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson removed Manan Vohra in the next over. Rajasthan Royals were in all sorts of trouble after losing two quick wickets inside four overs.
Siraj was given the ball to weave the magic in the fifth over of RR’s innings. The right-arm fast bowler delivered an unplayable delivery to David Miller in the third ball of the fourth over.

The South African international failed to connect the ball. Meanwhile, the white leather went on to hit the South African player’s toe. Mohammed Siraj and his teammates made a full-hearted appeal but the on-field umpire was not interested.
RCB players took a review and the decision was taken upstairs. When the third umpire reviewed it, the ball was pitching in line and hit the wickets. As a result, the third umpire asked the on-field umpire to overturn his decision and he signaled the batsman ‘out’.
