Note: In a career context, all numbers are restricted between 0 and 5. However, in a match context, the numbers are not restricted.
For simplicity, we are changing the scale here in the report and expressing every Match Impact number as a percentage. The maximum percentage (100) is assigned to the highest impact player of the match. All other players in the match are scaled relative to him. Negative Match Impact indicates that not only did the player not contribute in the match, but he also had an adverse effect on his team’s chances.

Scorecard

In a display of utter domination, hosts Royal Challengers Bangalore swamped a hapless Gujarat Lions by 144 runs on Saturday (14 May).

AB de Villiers was the highest impact player, and batsman of the match for his unbeaten 52-ball-129. It was the highest impact performance of his T20 career (across domestic and international levels).

As many as nine players from GL failed tonight; RCB had five such players. In fact, the visitors were so terrible in their collective failure that they had a negative Match Impact as a team.
