Rajat Patidar’s Big-Match Ton Helped RCB to Secure a Spot in Qualifier 2

Rajat Patidar scored one of the greatest knocks in Playoffs history, his unbeaten 112 of 54 balls now is the fastest hundred by an uncapped player in IPL. Faf du Plessis failed, Virat Kohli failed, Glenn Maxwell failed but Rajat Patidar who came as a replacement for RCB, helped them to score 207 runs with his century in the eliminator. He kept on hitting the ball hard while wickets were constantly falling at the other end.

After the match, RCB Captain Faf du Plessis said “Rajat Patidar’s Hundred – one of the best Hundred I have ever seen. Oh, what an Innings.”

Here are some interesting stats of RCB in the last 2 matches in Eden Gardens in IPL:-

In 2019
•Virat Kohli – 100(58).
•Last 5 overs RCB – 91 runs.
• Kohli’s last 18 balls – 50 runs.

In 2022
•Rajat Patidar – 112*(54).
•Last 5 over RCB – 84 runs.
•Patidar last 15 balls – 46 runs.

Rajat Patidar was a find by the RCB scouting team. Every run scored by him in this season has been impactful in terms of the match context. He is taking the pressure off from Kohli & Faf but He won’t get that much hype because why give credit to RCB for some domestic talents.

RCB was nowhere around 180 after 10 overs and then, Rajat Patidar & Dinesh Karthik took the total to 200+

Apart from Rajat Patidar, Harshal Patel bowled superbly last night, You’re a warrior. He got injured in the last match and when he came in this eliminator match he wasn’t fully fit but he played and did really well and he Bowled incredibly well in death overs in Eliminator. Want to say one word for him phenomenal.
