Royal Challengers Bangalore trounce Punjab by 10 wickets

16 May 2018

Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli achieved a double milestone on Monday during his match against Kings XI Punjab in Indore. Three of the last four wickets were chaotic run-outs, which summed up Kings XI's approach on a pitch that wasn't as flat as the one that produced a run aggregate of 459 on Saturday, but it wasn't unplayable either. Both teams have an explosive top order. After a lacklustre start to the tournament, the team led by Virat Kohli found themselves in a must-win situation to stay alive in the tournament. The bowlers wreak havoc supported by some explosion on part of the Punjab batsmen.

Talking of the RCB vs KXIP IPL match today, coming off the back of a strong win against the Delhi Daredevils, the Bangalore side looked a completely changed unit in that match. His success has come with the ball so far, making up for scoring a combined 11 runs with the bat by conceding at an economical 6.28 runs an over, and returning particularly impressive figures of 1-25 in that Daredevils win. The earlier time Kings XI Punjab took on Bangalore in this year's IPL, the big Jamaican did not feature in the XI.

Umesh had already put the KXIP on the back foot by striking twice in the 4th over sending both their openers back. Karun Nair, who's had a wonderful domestic season recently was dismissed when he tried to guide a shortish delivery past Kohli at 1st slip but ended up giving a regulation catch to him. Gayle followed suit with a similar stroke.

Andrew Tye has had a lot of success in the death overs; he has picked up 12 wickets while bowling in the last five overs, and has an economy rate of 8.05 in that period.

The target was expected to be nothing, but a cakewalk. The victory also gives massive boost to RCB's net run rate. He went on the attack and peppered the Punjab batsmen with short-pitched deliveries. The best RCB can reach is 14 points where they can tie with other sides and race ahead by virtue of a positive NRR.

The former Michigan State man blocked a ridiculous three shots per game, good for seventh-best in the entirety of Division-I. But should he fall two spots lower, Cleveland could take a hard look - if not ultimately pick - the Blue Devils big man.

The pair cautiously put nine runs for Bangalore in the first over. Barring Andrew Tye none of the bowlers are consistent enough. Although in IPL, there always seems a unusual turnaround at the end of the tournament and the Bangalore team, led by Virat Kohli will try to put pressure on Punjab. Overall, 63.8% of the runs scored in the three matches have been through boundaries. The visitors eventually won the contest by ten wickets and in the 9th over. Both openers had a lifeline each - Kohli was even dropped on 18 by Aaron Finch and Patel survived being caught in the deep by Mayank Agarwal on 32.

The duo took the visitors over 50-run mark in the fifth over and were at 66/0 after the six Powerplay overs.
