Match Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai
I was glad to go and watch the match in the stadium &
tickets are worth buying as entertainment is unlimited. What more we could have
asked for from this match. We beat Mumbai Indians for the 1st time
in Bangalore as we had always lost against them in our home ground. We were
without services of AB De Villers and one man Army Chris Gayle had a cracker of
a game opening RCB’s winning account in style by scoring a whooping 92 runs in
just 58 balls.
The unknown Bumrah took 3 wickets but in the end he too got
the taste of Gayle & kohli as no Mumbai Indian bowlers good deliver the
goods in front of Gayle even though they managed a few in patches. Captain
Virat Kohli smashed 24 runs in just 14 balls as RCB reached 156 from 20 overs.
Vinay Kumar was on song as the Davangere express rocked MI batting with 3 class
wickets with only Dinesh Karthik smashed a few scoring 60 in just 37 balls due
to whom the game went on till the last over as Vinay Kumar won a nail biter for
RCB by 2 runs.
Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Sunrisers Hyderabad:- (1st Super over of the season):-
This was one match which RCB lost as Vihari was making his
bowling debut and bowling to the dangerous Gayle. The strategy worked for
Sunrisers as Gayle was caught behind of Vihari just for 1 run. Dilshan did not
stay on and walked away after scoring just 5 runs. Captain Virat Kohli took up
the responsibility along with Henriques who was playing his 1st
match for RCB. Kohli made 46 and Henriques made 44 as RCB managed to make just
Henriques & Unadkat started of well and ended up with 2
wickets each but the total was a bit too less to defend for RCB still we fought
on and took the game to the 1st super over of the season. With never
to give up attitude we took the game to super over but White blasted of as we
failed to chase the super over target and we lost it but the spirits was good
in the camp as we fought till the end.
Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Sunrisers Hyderabad
(welcoming the guest at home):-
After the super over loss in Hyderabad it was time to do
something different at home with the same opponent. Sunrisers Hyderabad did
well to set a target of 162 runs as White and Perera played on well. RP Singh getting on a game took 3 crucial
When Gayle fell for 13 it was looking as if it will be a
repeat of the match at Hyderabad but captain Virat Kohli sprung up his batting
and accelerated on as he destroyed the consisting of Steyn,Sharma,Mishra,Perera
and there was nothing that could stop Kohli as he went on and on scoring sixes
and fours making 93 runs in just 44 balls as RCB won by 7 wickets. The
electronic board at the Chinnaswamy stadium read as “Revenge was Sweet” and it
Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kolkata Knight Riders:-
Taking on the defending champions at home it was expected to
be a difficult outing for RCB. KKR batting 1st skipper Gambhir
scored 59 runs with some late assaults from Y.Pathan and Bhatia took KKR score
to 154 runs as RP Singh yet again came to party picking up 3 wickets.
Gayle was to take on Narine and it was going to be a
challenge playing this mystery spinner.
Once again the big man Gayle kept the game on and went on to blast a quickfire 85 in just 50 balls with 9 sixes in his name as Virat kohli made 35 and De Villers finished with 22 not out in the end as RCB won by 8 wickets.
The next match against CSK would be awaited exciting contest and all of us would be looking forward for it. All the best RCB ! ! !
