What Akash Chopra said was
In a video on his YouTube page, Chopra talked about the game and said that the “Impact Player” rule helped both Royal Challengers Bangalore and Faf du Plessis. He said that Faf du Plessis was a star who made a big difference. Even though he hurt a muscle in his chest, the boy still wants to play. God knows what he is up to. Rohit Sharma played that day because of the ‘Impact Player’ rule, and Faf played here. Which is why it’s a big blessing that he gets to play at all.”

The former player also said, “When he came up to bat, I didn’t think he would hit that much, but he hit a lot. Both du Plessis and Virat Kohli played well at the bat, and together they scored 137 runs. It looked like they would score between 195 and 200, but they weren’t counted. You couldn’t go higher than 175. So I thought they slowed down a bit at the end.”
RCB lost the toss and had to bat first. In the 20 overs that were allowed, they got 174 runs and lost 4 wickets. The most runs were made by Faf du Plessis (84).
