Ronal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by 10 runs in the third match of the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The win is important for RCB, which was last in the points table last season, as it will boost Virat & Kong’s morale in the upcoming matches as well. At the end of the league round, the Virat Kohli-led RCB team won just five of 14 matches last season. Virat’s wife and Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma reacted to RCB’s victory through an Instagram story.
