WATCH: AB de Villiers’ son hurts himself in disappointment after father’s dismissal

The 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League had a double-header in store for the fans yesterday on a Super Sunday. In the first match, the Kolkata Knight Riders battled the Chennai Super Kings, while in the second match, the Royal Challengers Bangalore took on the two-time defending champions Mumbai Indians. The likes of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Rohit Sharma and Trent Boult were in action during the second game of the night.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore won the match comfortably, thanks to half-centuries from Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell. In the second innings, Harshal Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal united forces to take a total of seven wickets of the Mumbai Indians batters. The Royal Challengers Bangalore cruised to a win in Dubai and strengthened their grip over the third position in the IPL 2021 standings.

Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Mumbai Indians for the 2nd time in the 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League

Many fans would remember that the Royal Challengers Bangalore crossed swords with the Mumbai Indians in the opening fixture of the 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League. The RCB franchise emerged victorious in that match played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Notably, Harshal Patel was the hero for the Bangalore-based team in that contest as well, as he had taken a 5-wicket haul for his team.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore had won that game while chasing a target, and AB de Villiers played a crucial knock in that match. However, in yesterday’s match, de Villiers could not score big. His son was disappointed after Jasprit Bumrah dismissed him.
