With 83 runs needed from 45 balls, Shahbaz and Karthik put up a sixth-wicket stand of 67 runs to help the Bangalore-based side cross the finish line. Shahbaz, who scored 45 in the IPL, expressed his willingness to contribute on crucial occasions.

“This is my third season in this role, and it’s been a long time since I’ve played it.” And now is the time to fulfill your obligations. Because the initiative was with RR at one point, the circumstances were somewhat difficult tonight.

“However, DK bhai’s ability to change the tempo in our favor made things easier for me. “And that enthusiasm allowed us to close the game,” he said in a press conference after the match.

Shahbaz Ahmed spoke about his role at RCB:

Shahbaz Ahmed was tested as a floater in the previous edition after only appearing in two games in the 2020 season. He has now stated that he will bat at No.5 or No.6 continuously. So far this year, the left-arm spinner has delivered just 12 deliveries, and he claims captain Faf du Plessis likes Leggie Wanindu Hasaranga should play against the opposition left-handers.

“It depends on the circumstances at the time.” Since many teams have left-handed bats, the captain prefers to throw our lead leg spinner at this time. However, I hope to be able to bowl in the next matches.

“As for my stick, I have to hit whenever the team requires it. “But they’re not going to use me as a float; I’ll hit No. 5 or No. 6 and only train for that. said the 27-year-old.

Dinesh Karthik will want to keep his momentum going to have the best opportunity to qualify for the T20 World Cup, to be held in Australia later this year.
