Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kings XI Punjab Match Review

K L Rahul

As enchanting as De Villiers' innings was, Umesh Yadav's superlative effort with the ball (3/23) was equally crucial, if not more, in RCB's win.

Virat Kohli's lack of form will be a concern for Royal Challengers Bangalore when they gear up for Rajasthan Royals at home. He produced his brilliant triple strike in the space of six balls, Agarwal, the unsafe Finch and then Yuvraj Singh for four. In the very first ball, he dismissed Agarwal (15), with Quinton de Kock stumping him.

After losing their IPL opener against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), RCB was eyeing a win at home and Umesh's 3 for 23 restricted the opponents to a small total. Finch (0) had to go.

India's champion player and show stopper Yuvraj Singh again had a poor outing and from a distance, it is looking like that something is not right with this talented batsman. And then out! Yadav clean bowled Yuvraj off the last ball of the over, thus breaking the backbone of the opposition.

Between the two teams, Bangalore hold the edge, despite winning just two of the six matches against their opponents of the morrow at this venue. R Ashwin finally broke the promising alliance, bowling de Kock in the 12th over. With the Royal Challengers cruising towards their target, Ashwin brought himself on and snuck through the gate to have Quinton de Kock on his way with a quicker off-spinner.

RCB are expected to continue with their young contingent of Washington Sundar and Mandeep Singh in the team, but Sarfaraz Khan may will have to make way for Murugan Ashwin if there is any late change in selections. A good example of that was the fact that all of the five players who bowled each took at least one wicket.

Mandeep Singh denied Ashwin a hat-trick, and began the rebuilding process along with de Villiers. Umesh, their best bowler in their first match against KKR, did just that in the fourth over of the innings, changed its course nearly decisively. The RCB think-tank, including Gary Kirsten, could give a chance to Corey Anderson, who has the ability to hit long and hard.

The run chase, although modest, started badly when New Zealand's Brendon McCullum was out for a golden duck off Axar Patel's second ball, while 17-year-old Afghanistan offspinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman got the prize wicket of the prolific Virat Kohli (21). De Villiers upped the ante, hitting two towering sixes off Mujeeb in an over where RCB collected 19 runs. The duo initially dealt in singles, occasionally finding the gaps during their 59-run partnership that took RCB closer.

For Bangalore, pacer Umesh Yadav scalped three wickets while Chris Woakes, Kulwant Khejroliya and Washington Sundar took two wickets each.
