Rising Pune Supergiant beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by 27 runs in an Indian Premier League encounter, on Sunday.
Of course, the Pune celebrated their win. And as the age-old traditions go, celebrations and merriments are incomplete without cakes. Either eaten or smeared all over the faces of all those present.
An Instagram video of the Pune team enjoying the victory surfaced on Monday. In which MS Dhoni is seen convincing his teammates to eat the delicious cake. He says, “Abey kha na, bohot achcha cake hai! Ek adha lo aur ek face pey lagalo.” (Hey, eat the cake. It’s a good one. Eat half and smear the other half on faces)
Batting first, Rising Pune Supergiants scored a respectable 161 for 8 despite a middle-order collapse. In reply, RCB were restricted to 134 for 9.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni (28) and Steve Smith (27) added 59 runs for the third wicket after a 63-run opening stand between Rahul Tripathi (31) and Ajinkya Rahane (30).
A lot of credit should go to Manoj Tiwary for his 11- ball-27 that went a long way for Pune to reach 161 for 8 after being reduced to 130 for 7 at one stage.
Pune now have four points from five games while RCB remained on two points after their fourth defeat in five games.
