Rain stops the play between Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore
SOURCE In IPL 12, it was the first match where rain interrupt between match and play had to be stopped. The news was about the tsunami will come from the ocean given news by weather forecasting. so, it was clearly seen black clouds above the ground. When the toss was done at that time there was not a sign of rain but after the toss rain started and the players have to stay inside the roof. In the 13 match, virat Kohli had a captaincy but out of that he loses a toss 10 times and this makes the team out of the playoffs. Toss won by Rajasthan Royals skipper Steve Smith and elected to field first. It was a small ground and dev factor plays an important role so it will be easy to chase the target at this ground. Rajasthan Royals have one change in the team. Due to rain match had been reduced to 5 over a side because if match not started then it will be a loss to both the team because 2 points were important for Bangalore to remain alive for the journey of playoffs. As the rain stops at late 11.00 pm at night and match started and so De Villiers and Virat Kohli open the innings for Royal Challengers Bangalore. Bowl was on the hand of Varun Aaron. Royal Challengers Bangalore able to score 63 runs in 5 overs and Shreyas Gopal was the highest wicket-taker with 3 important wickets of Virat kohli, Marcus Stoinis, and De Villiers. Now Virat Kohli teammates have a responsibility on their head to do good bowling. Umesh Yadav conceded just 10 runs in first over. After 3.1 over once again match stopped and both teams have given 1 point each.

Shreyas Gopal stars as Rajasthan Royals registered their first win.
The leggie picked up three big wickets of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Hetmyer. RR won the toss and opted to bowl first. Both the temas made certain changes to their playing eleven. RCB got off to a decent start scoring 48 in first six. But then in came the leggie who just spun a web around RCB. Shreyas Gopal as mentioned got three huge wickets. Parthiv Patel looked to be batting on a different surface as he scored 67. Stoinis brought in as replacement held one end and with Moeen Ali in the death overs finished at 158. This score looked below par. RR had a great opportunity to get the much needed two points on the table and they did that comfortably in the end. Both the openers Rahane and Buttler were off to a flier scoring 55 off first six. However Virat Kohli dropped Rahane when the batter was on 1. Chahal got the all important breakthrough by trapping Rahane in front of the stumps. Buttler meanwhile on the other hand got going and brought up his 50, second of this IPL. He too was dismissed by Chahal. Tripathi and Steve Smith made sure that there were no additional hiccups as they batted sensibly and playing risk free shots. The hosts in the end won by 7 wickets with a ball to spare. Shreyas Gopal was rightly given Man of the Match. RCB looked below par in every department specifically fielding. They had dropped catches which one would expect them to hold on to. It is high time now for RCB as they need to win 8 out of the remaining 10 matches to qualify for Play-offs.
