Royal Challengers Bangalore’s big guns failed to fire as they lost to Kings XI Punjab by 32 runs at the Chinnaswamy stadium.
RCB won the toss and decided to field first trusting their star-studded batting order to chase in front of the home crowd in their first game at the M Chinnaswamy this season. RCB made two changes to their line up from the previous game with Nic Maddinson’s replacement Rilee Rossouw coming in for Albie Morkel and Yogesh Takawale making way for Harshal Patel.
Kings XI Punjab won the toss and elected to field first. RCB named Chris Gayle in the starting XI, a player we all have been waiting to see in action. The big man walked out to face Glenn Maxwell in the first over of the game. The Gayle Storm seemed to kick off as he got 20 runs off the first over with two sixes and a four. However, in the next over Sandeep Sharma uprooted his stumps before trapping Kohli LBW too. With the wickets of Parthiv Patel and Yogesh Takawale falling in the powerplay as well, RCB managed to score 44/4 in the first 6 overs.
Virat Kohli won his third toss and decided to chase against KKR in Sharjah. Mitchell Starc backed his decision, bowling an absolute peach of a delivery to dismiss the Kolkata skipper for his third duck in a row. Albie Morkel then picked up the in-form Manish Pandey. Kallis and Chris Lynn then had to ensure the team did not lose any more wickets without hitting over the top managed to reach the score of 42 at the end of the 6th over.
