The story behind the 50
How Robin warmed up for his swashbuckling half century, and what he did post the match.
Robin was seriousness personified from the team bus to the playing field. He emerged without fuss onto the ground, and quietly took to one part of the field to warm up and stretch.
Here's a video of his warm up routine just prior to the match:
In the team bus, Robin wore a satisfied look and smiled his charming smile to the fans as we rode back from the stadium. He stayed glued to his headphones (more on his taste in music soon!), but as the bus approached the hotel, he was good naturedly ribbed by other players about the coterie of women staff who were dressed in traditional attire to welcome the team. A job well done, and he headed back for a peaceful night's sleep, giving a miss to the post-match party.
At the Chinnaswamy for an RCB practise session. Stay tuned for more on that. In the meantime, check out Chief photographer Ashish's page for images from last night's post match events.
