IPL: AB de Villiers smashes 57 to help RCB beat Kings

IPL: AB de Villiers smashes 57 to help RCB beat Kings

AB De Villiers gave us the profit in this market against KKR with 44 while Brendon McCullum, Virat Kohli and Mandeep Singh all came close to upsetting that tip. Kohli has managed to score 127 runs off 97 balls from Ashwin.

Kings XI Punjab, on the other hand, has laid out their template for this season: using spin at various points of an innings to stifle opponents and staying aggressive with the bat.

However, Kings XI Punjab fought with a lot of courage while defending a modest target of 155.

This may have been an away game for Kings XI, but two local boys walked out to open.

Ashwin is also aware that Agarwal, who missed out in the first game, is another match-winner and is looking at Rahul and Agarwal to provide the flawless platform to Miller and the rest to catapult Kings XI to victory.

In-form KL Rahul who slammed the fastest 50 of the Indian Premier League at the Feroze Shah Kotla ground against Delhi Daredevils on Sunday, hit two sixes and a boundary in the first over of the game off Chris Woakes. AB De Villiers too took his chances and made sure RCB were well ahead of the chase. "Umesh bowled well, getting three wickets in an over is great", expressed the 29-year-old. In this match, after the 19 overs, Kings XI's scored153 for nine wickets.

Mayank Agarwal edged behind before Aaron Finch was dismissed lbw. Aaron Finch, playing his first game after his wedding, lasted one ball as Umesh trapped him in front first up. He even mentioned that bowling out Yuvraj Singh was his most enjoyable moment. He got out soon but the job was done.

Kohli did not look his imperious best in the previous game and he would want to come out all guns blazing against Punjab.

He fell to Washington Sundar, who started his spell after the Powerplay for only the second time in the IPL.

RCB may not be forced to make many changes in their XI.

Apart from Ashwin, Mohit Sharma, Mujeeb, Axar Patel and Andrew Tye add depth to Punjab's bowling attack. It pitched outside off and zipped back in sharply, which Kohli tried to drive but missed it completely, only to see his stumps rattled. However, instead of having Mandeep Singh bat at No. 6, they could go in with all-rounder Pawan Negi, who was among one of the better performers for RCB in their bleak season a year ago.

Well, the balling strategy of the Kohli's team was quite good.

OVERS 6: RCB 41/2 after Powerplay overs. Both batsmen enjoyed the extra pace that Mohit Sharma offered, and smashed 16 runs - including a six and two fours - off the eighth over. RCB required 69 in 51 balls with De Villiers and Mandeep together. Marcus Stoinis looked likely to anchor the middle-order with a six signalling his intent, though he opted to dance down to Washington Sundar who threw in a quicker one, Quinton de Kock whipping the balls off as the Western Australian departed for 11.
