IPL 2017: RCB vs DD - Star Of the Match - Kedar Jadhav

RCB are without their star players - Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers - at the moment who are recuperating from injuries - but, in their absence, the onus of big runs was well taken care by Kedar Jadhav in their second match against Delhi Daredevils.

After losing their opener against Sunrisers Hyderabad, RCB made a remarkable comeback in their second game against Delhi Daredevils to emerge victorious.

Jadhav played a lone hand with a brilliant 69 off just 37 balls and helped his team post a respectable total of 157 for 8 against a Zaheer Khan-led Delhi outfit.

Opting to bat first after winning the toss, RCB began on a brisk pace but lost two quick wickets early on and that put brakes on their scoring rate.

Jadhav then shifted gears and hit a flurry of big shots amidst cheering by home supporters at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

RCB were 61 for 3 at once stage. Jadhav decided to score some quick runs as he hit leg-spinner Amit Mishra for two boundaries and as many sixes to take 24 runs from the 13th over.

Jadhav continued with a four and six off Carlos Brathwaite to add another 16 in the next over as RCB scored 48 runs in three overs to up the ante.

The Maharashtra batman hammered five sixes and as many boundaries in his 37-ball knock of 69.
