In the 27th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Delhi Capitals by 16-runs. RCB’s new captain Faf du Plessis, showered accolades on Dinesh Karthik after the keeper-batter helped his team thrash the DC. In this article, we have discussed what Faf Praises For Glenn Maxwell And Dinesh Karthik?
RCB defeated DC by 16 runs in their IPL 2022 clash at Wankhede Stadium, owing to outstanding half-centuries from Glenn Maxwell & Dinesh Karthik, as well as determining bowling efforts.
“I think it is important from the top-order perspective. Batting again was a little tricky. But Maxi put the pressure back on them. But then two guys in form did well for us. Today was a bit about some planning”. Faf Praises for Glenn Maxwell And Dinesh Karthik.
“We haven’t been as good as we would have wanted at the death. The bowlers were fantastic today. Most teams can fall away quickly seeing so much of dew. But we stuck to our plans. Nice thing to have experience,” said Faf du Plessis.
Faf Praises for Glenn Maxwell And Dinesh Karthik: DK is in the form of his life.
Dinesh Karthik hit an unbroken 66, while all-rounder Glenn Maxwell slammed a magnificent 55 to help Royal Challengers Bangalore set a comfortable total of 189/5. Shardul Thakur, Khaleel Ahmed, and Axar Patel each took one wicket for DC.
This is RCB’s fourth win in 6 games in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, boosting them to 3rd spot. For Delhi, this is their 3rd defeat in 5 games.
“When it is going well or not, you can reinforce the trust. DK is in the form of his life. Obviously lucky to have him on our side. I would like to have guys tell me before the game if there would be dew or not. Maybe on tired wickets, we will bat first. Just one game at a time. It is important to stay calm and composed,” he added.
Also at the post-match conference, Dinesh Karthik, Man of the Match: “I must admit that I have a bigger goal. I have been working really hard. I have been trying to do everything to be a part of the Indian team. Depends on the bowler, whoever is bowling well. I respected Kuldeep as he was bowling well. When you are batting at the death, you try and get under the ball more while hitting”.
“You make me sound like a serial killer (laughs when asked as to how was he so calm and hit them so hard at the same time). I must admit positions and calmness comes from preparations. Apart from that staying in the moment sounds cliched but it works. He (Shahbaz) is a very special player, I am very sure he is going to do special things. He can hit a ball a long long way. And he backs himself which I like about him”, concluded Dinesh Karthik.
