Match – 28 RCB VS KXIP : Show-stoppers VIRAT KOHLI & AB De Villiers shine as ROYAL CHALLENGERS BANGALORE beats PUNJAB to opens their account

TOSS: RCB won the toss and have decided to bowl first

Chris Gayle & KL Rahul comes to the crease

2 overs just 7 runs for KXIP

I think it’s calm here before Gayle-storm!

We are 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

Ah the smile from the young boss baby! It’s Prietty Zinta cheering here the KXIP. What a start from Punjab 60/0 after 6 overs

6 and gone!

It was 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

It’s a 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.

Knocked him over!

Again a 6 and a wicket for Yuzi Chahal!!!!!

Earlier 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 86/2

How can he scoop that for a six? As Sarfaraz scoops it over his head for a maximum off Siraj.

And again, 6 and a wicket!

I think it’s a signature step for KXIP now hit a six and gets out the next ball!!!

As Sarfaraz edges it to the keeper Parthiv patel for 15. Sam Curran in. KXIP 110/3

Moeen Ali comes to the party as well!

As Sam 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

A drop and 16 runs off the Umesh Yadav’s over as KXIP 162/4 after 19 overs

Last bowl of the innings as Chris Gayle is on 95*

Can he gets to his century?

Ah just 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

RCB needs 174 runs to win off 120 balls

Skipper Virat Kohli & Parthiv Patel opens for RCB

WHAT-A-START for RCB 36/0 after 3 overs.

Ravi Ashwin strikes; removes Parthiv Patel

As 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

50 for Virat Kohli! Just another one for him. RCB 98/1

Virat is gone!

Shami 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

20 runs required off 12 balls

Huge six from ABD gets the equation 6 runs to get off 6 balls

No Sam Curran here?

Who’s gonna bowl then? As Punjab doesn’t have a 6th bowler.

Oh my my! Sarfaraz Khan gets the nod!

Not a 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
