'Superman' De Villiers gets 9.5, Kohli 7, Unadkat 3: IPL 2020 Bangalore and Rajasthan player ratings

Commanding seven-wicket win for Royal Challengers in Dubai

South African great AB de Villiers had a match to remember as he almost single-handedly took Royal Challengers Bangalore to a seven-wicket win in Dubai on Saturday.

Chasing Rajasthan Royals' total of 177-6, significant but time-consuming knocks from Devdutt Padikkal (35 from 37 balls) and Virat Kohli (43 off 32) meant Bangalore were well behind the required rate.

But De Villiers turned things around in a matter of minutes, smashing three successive sixes in the penultimate over from Jaydev Unadkat when the team needed 35 from 12 balls. He finished the game with a six off Jofra Archer in the final over, remaining unbeaten on 55 from 22 balls.
