won the toss and have decided to bowl first
Gayle & KL Rahul comes to the crease
just 7 runs for KXIP
it’s calm here before Gayle-storm!
talking about taking up the ante and I think The Boss might have listened to
that one as he scraps the bone outta Siraj as he has hit him for 4,6,4,0,6
smile from the young boss baby! It’s Prietty Zinta cheering here the KXIP. What
a start from Punjab 60/0 after 6 overs
coming we can see that as Rahul had earlier hit chahal for a six this time
again dances down the track but misses the Ball completely and Keeper Parthiv
makes no mistake as Rahul goes for 18. Mayank Agarwal in at 3. KXIP 66/1
fifty for the BOSS! off just 28 balls. He is doing with so much ease and I
think he wants to stay till the end as KXIP doesn’t have the deep and
experienced batting line-up. 27th fifty for Chris Gayle. He should convert this
into a hundred.
Again a 6
and a wicket for Yuzi Chahal!!!!!
Mayank hits him for a six deep mid-off and the next ball is absolute ripper,
he’s foxed and stump shatters as he goes for 15. Sarfaraz Khan comes in. KXIP
he scoop that for a six? As Sarfaraz scoops it over his head for a maximum off
again, 6 and a wicket!
it’s a signature step for KXIP now hit a six and gets out the next ball!!!
Sarfaraz edges it to the keeper Parthiv patel for 15. Sam Curran in. KXIP 110/3
comes to the party as well!
Curran tries to reverse-sweep it but gets struck on the pads and Umpire says it
out as it was hitting middle and leg-stump. So he goes for 1. KXIP 113/4
and 16 runs off the Umesh Yadav’s over as KXIP 162/4 after 19 overs
of the innings as Chris Gayle is on 95*
gets to his century?
the boundary just a short of to a what would be a phenomenal hundred
thenonetheless he stays on 99* as KXIP ends on 173/4
174 runs to win off 120 balls
Virat Kohli & Parthiv Patel opens for RCB
for RCB 36/0 after 3 overs.
Ashwin strikes; removes Parthiv Patel
Parthiv comes down the ground and top edges it to Mayank Agarwal at long-off.
He goes for 19. ABD comes in. RCB 43/1
Virat Kohli! Just another one for him. RCB 98/1
gets the short ball which Virat Kohli pulls it to deep mid-wicket where Murugan
Ashwin takes a perfect catch to end Kohli’s innings for 67. Marcus Stoinis is
in. RCB 128/2
required off 12 balls
from ABD gets the equation 6 runs to get off 6 balls
gonna bowl then? As Punjab doesn’t have a 6th bowler.
Oh my my!
Sarfaraz Khan gets the nod!
regular one as this is his first appearance as a bowler. This might be to
surreal but hey that’s Ravi Ashwin for you. Always thinking differently.
4 and a
couple from Stoinis gets the victory for RCB by 8 wickets
Man of the match: ABD for his knock 59*
