Mumbai: Royal Challengers Bangalore scored a score of 199 runs while batting first against Mumbai Indians in IPL-2023 on Tuesday. Captain Faf Duplesey played an important role in helping the team reach this score. Duplessi is in excellent form this season and once again he has shown the power of his bat and scored a brilliant innings half-century. This is Duplesey’s sixth half-century. But Mumbai had a chance to stop Duplesey which he missed.
Du Plessis played a brilliant inning against Mumbai at the Wankhede Stadium and scored 65 off 41 balls with the help of five fours and three sixes. He is the highest run scorer for Bangalore this season. Mumbai could have stopped Duplessy in the beginning but she could not do so.

Chance missed in the very first over
Duplesey could have returned to the pavilion in the very first over but it could not happen. Jason Behrendorff was throwing the first over. Jason gave the ball at the feet of Duplecy and this batsman flicked the ball. The ball went into the hands of Nehal Wadhera standing at short midwicket. But Nehal could not catch this simple catch and Duplessy got life. Duplessy took full advantage of this gift of life.
The Bangalore captain then played a fiery innings and shared a century partnership for the third wicket with Glenn Maxwell. Maxwell scored 68 runs. Had Nehal caught that catch of Duplesey, Duplesey would have returned to the pavilion and then there would have been no partnership with Maxwell, which would have been a relief for Mumbai. In such a situation, it is possible that the Bangalore team is not able to score big.
