Rajasthan Royals were taken home by 5 wickets thanks to exceptional late hitting from Steve Smith & James Faulkner who combined to overcome Yuvraj’s all-round heroics for Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Royal Challengers Bangalore’s big guns failed to fire as they lost to Kings XI Punjab by 32 runs at the Chinnaswamy stadium.
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.
The Royal Challengers had a disappointing day at Abu Dhabi, posting just 70 on their debut at the ground and losing the game against the Rajasthan Royals by 6 wickets.
