Royal Challengers Bangalore Reviews
Royal Challengers Bangalore hadn’t been in such a good position since 2014 where they are right now. They ended on the bottom of the points table in almost the last three editions but the situation is different now. They had played a total of seven matches with five wins to their name. They had lost just two matches and are tied at the third position on the points table with Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians. They are coming to this match on the back of a massive win over Kolkata Knight Riders in their most recent match with a handsome margin of 82 runs. They won the toss and decided to bat first. The way how the batting order of RCB performed in that match was just superb. They scored 194 runs in their inning of 20 overs. The performance of their top batting order was outstanding and almost all batsmen from their side put some runs on the board. AB de Villiers was the most successful and highest run-scorer from their side who remained not out after scoring 73(33) runs with the help of five boundaries and six huge sixes. Aaron Finch also had a good performance with the bat. He scored 47(37) and smashed four boundaries and one six. The skipper, Virat Kohli also performed well with the bat. He remained not out after scoring 33 runs. Devdutt Padikkal put 32(23) runs and smashed four boundaries and one six.
Like the batting, the bowling unit of RCB also gave their best performance in the previous match against KKR. Not only they defended the target of 195 runs, but they also restricted the strong batting order of Kolkata Knight Riders which have batsmen like Tom Banton, Andre Russell, Eoin Morgan, Shubman Gill, and Dinesh Karthik under the total of 120 runs. They used six bowlers in that match and almost all bowlers from their side performed well in that match. Chris Morris, who was playing his second match of this season of IPL T20, had a superb performance with the ball. He picked two wickets in his four overs bowled out and leaked just 17 runs. Washington Sundar was the other bowler from the RCB side who picked two wickets in his four overs bowled out while he was charged for 20 runs. Yuzvendra Chahal also had an outstanding performance and picked one wicket in his four overs bowled out against just 12 runs. Navdeep Saini picked one wicket in three overs while he leaked 17 runs. Mohammed Siraj also picked one wicket in his four overs bowled out while he was charged for 24 runs. We can say that Isuru Udana was the most expensive bowler from their side who leaked 19 runs in his two overs and picked one wicket.
Kings XI Punjab Reviews
Kings XI Punjab had been struggling in this tournament since the very first match of this edition of the Indian Premier League. They had won just one out of seven matches played so far and are laying at the bottom of the points table. This will be their last chance to have a start to the next level of this tournament. They were beaten by Kolkata Knight Riders in their most recent match by the margin of just two runs. This was a match that KXIP could easily win but their middle-order batting line up failed to do so. They lost the toss and were asked to field first. The performance of their bowling unit was good in the previous match. They leaked 164 runs in their 20 overs. Ravi Bishnoi was the most successful bowler from their side who picked one wicket in his four overs bowled out against just 25 runs. Arshdeep Singh also had a good performance with the ball. He picked one wicket in his four overs bowled out while he leaked 25 runs. Mohammed Shami was the other bowler from the KXIP side who picked one wicket but they leaked plenty of runs. He was charged for 30 runs in his four overs. Chris Jordan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman were the bowlers who failed to pick any wicket in the previous match.
The batting order of Kings XI Punjab almost failed to perform well in the previous match. The target of 165 runs was easy to chase and they were in the position to chase this target but in their last overs inning, they failed to do so. They had a good opening start of 115 runs but soon they lost the momentum and could manage to score 162 runs in their inning of 20 overs. The skipper, KL Rahul was the most successful and highest run-scorer from their side who scored 74(58) with the help of six boundaries. Mayank Agarwal was the other batsman from their side who had an outstanding performance with the bat. He scored 56(39) and smashed six boundaries and one six. Nicholas Pooran scored 16 runs while Glenn Maxwell remained not out after scoring 10 runs. Simran Singh could manage to score just four runs while Mandeep Singh failed to open his account on the scoreboard and was bowled out on a golden duck. The bowlers of Kings XI Punjab did well against Kolkata Knight Riders but the middle batting order destroyed their dreams to win a match. Kings XI Punjab had to have a look at their middle-order batting line up.
