If you are a fan of Virat Kohli's team, then know the bitter truth - defeating Bangalore is a game of 'left hand'.

If you are shocked by reading this headlines, believing it to be wrong, then stop and 'recap' the previous matches of Royal Challengers Bangalore. On Friday night, Punjab Kings defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by a big margin of 34 runs. That too when the target of 180 runs was in front of Royal Challengers Bangalore. That is, in terms of goals, there was no such big score that the team disintegrates. But the team scattered. Earlier, something similar happened in the match played against Chennai on 25 April. Chennai Super Kings defeated Bangalore by a big margin of 69 runs. Even then the target was only 192 runs. But the Royal Challengers Bangalore team remained far away from that goal.

The team of Royal Challengers Bangalore has won five out of 7 matches so far this season. He has suffered defeat in just two matches. He is at the third position in the points table with 10 points. But the two matches that we mentioned have exposed the huge shortage of Bangalore. It is such a shortcoming that it can become a big weapon for the opposing teams. That is the shortfall of the Royal Challengers Bangalore batsmen kneeling against the left-arm spin bowlers.

Weakness revealed against Punjab Kings

Against Punjab, Bangalore's team had landed in the field to achieve the target of 180 runs. After the dismissal of Devidutt Padikkal, captain Virat Kohli took the front. Up to 60 runs were also added for 10 overs with Rajat Patidar. Now there was a delay in putting the next gear. But before putting the next gear on, Harpreet Brar came. Left-arm spinner Harpreet Brar did not even have a bogey that the batsmen were scared of his name. But he first surprised Virat Kohli. Virat wanted to play his low ball towards midwicket. But there was a slight miss and Virat became bold.

On the very next ball, 25-year-old Harpreet Brar bowled Glenn Maxwell. This time he bowled the ball at the middle stump line, which Maxwell could not understand. After this, when ABP de Villiers was in front of him, when Harpreet brought his next over. Now the same obstacles could be formed in the way of Punjab's victory. Harpreet caught AB de Villiers on his first ball. The world's three biggest T20 batsmen were licking the dust in front of the left-arm bowler. Harpreet Brar took 3 wickets for 19 runs in 4 overs. He was adjudged Player of the Match.

Ravindra Jadeja also showed left hand power

Recall one more match of this season. The date was 25 April. Batting first, Chennai had added 191 runs to the scoreboard. In this, Ravindra Jadeja's contribution of 62 runs off 28 balls was contributed. Well come to the batting of RCB. The matter was at par until Jadeja had taken over. Jadeja came to bowl in the seventh over. First of all, he dismissed Washington Sundar, who came up in the batting order. In his next over, Jadeja dismissed Glenn Maxwell. Maxwell missed the shot towards midwicket and the ball scattered the stumps.

On the very first ball of his next over, Ravindra Jadeja again did a great job. This time he made AB de Villiers his victim. De Villiers wanted to play Jadeja's ball coming out of the crease, but Jadeja's ball touching the upper part of the middle stump was enough to send him to the pavilion. Royal Challengers Bangalore do not have T20 League title yet, if they have to fulfill their dream of winning the title then they will have to overcome their weakness against the left-arm spin bowlers. Otherwise left-arm spin bowlers will continue to surprise Bangalore with their speed and variation of line length.

The BCCI decided to postpone IPL-2021 indefinitely due to increasing cases of corona. With this, all the players participating in it, the support staff and those involved in the commentary panel, returned to their homes. Former India and Bengal cricket team player Laxmiratan Shukla was also part of the IPL commentary team. After the postponement of the league, Shukla has done a winning job. He has decided to pay the entire fees from IPL commentary to the West Bengal Chief Minister Relief Fund to deal with the Corona crisis. Shukla gave information about this by tweeting.

Shukla took this decision on his birthday on Thursday. Shukla was the Sports and Youth Affairs Minister of the state from 2016 to 2021. He said goodbye to politics earlier this year. He was a Trinamool Congress MLA from Howrah North region. He has also played three ODIs for India. He has also participated in 47 IPL matches. He said, "I am happy that I am able to give the earnings from the IPL 2021 commentary on the day of my birthday for the good of the state." Whatever I am, I am because of people. If my contribution makes any difference on my birthday, I will consider myself lucky.

Many more cricketers have helped

Before Shukla, many cricketers who played in the IPL have come forward to help India in this epidemic. Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins decided to help the PM Cares Fund. Apart from them, Shikhar Dhawan, Jaidev Unadkat, Pandya brothers also announced their help. Sachin Tendulkar, Brett Lee have also helped. Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals also announced help in the fight against this epidemic.
