"I just can’t bat with you" - Glenn Maxwell to Virat Kohli after getting run out in the match against CSK

One of the biggest games happened last night when two big teams met. The defending champions took on RCB in a race to survival. But in the end, it was Bangalore that held their nerve and came out victorious to get two important points on the table. With this win, Faf du Plessis and his men ended their losing streak and jumped to fourth place. 


The franchise also shared a video on their official social media platform of the players congratulating each other and having fun in the change room. Two big boys, Virat and Maxwell, were also seen having a funny conversation. Notably, before the start of the match, Maxwell had a niggle, but he performed exceptionally well. He was an instrumental part of RCB’s win over CSK last night. The all-rounder bowled his full quota of four overs for just 22 runs and took two important wickets of Robin Uthappa and Ambati Rayudu to dent the hope of a CSK chase. 

However, with the bat, he wasn’t able to do much, as he was run out for just three runs. The former RCB skipper was involved with him in that run-out. Recalling that moment, the all-rounder told Virat humorously that he wouldn’t bat with him anymore. It was the last ball of the ninth over, when Virat nudged a ball and called Glenn Maxwell for a run.


Responding to the call, the all-rounder ran, but Uthappa grabbed the ball and threw it to MSD, who whipped off the bails, and the 33-year-old was short of his ground. The all-rounder said in the video, “I just can’t bat with you. You run too fast, you run too fast. You get ones and twos, I don’t. “

RCB is now sitting in 4th place with 12 points. RCB has three games left and needs at least two big wins to qualify for the playoffs. Speaking on the performance of the all-rounder, the former RCB skipper jokingly said that “The greatest injured player in the history of the game (laughs). 2/22 in 4 overs.

RCB Director of Cricket Mike Hesson also praised Glenn Maxwell. He said that he took two crucial wickets of veteran right-handers and brought RCB back into the game. Furthermore, he added that the turning point was the overs from spinners. The RCB spinners bowled exceptionally well, as they bowled 10 overs for 80 runs and took four wickets.


Talking about the RCB batting, A few batters got the start and Mahipal Lomror was the highest run-getter. He scored 42 runs off 37 balls, including three fours and two maximums. A late cameo from Dinesh Karthik helped RCB to reach a competitive total.
