IPL: Kohli praises bowlers for victory against KXIP

  • IPL 2018 RCB vs RR Interesting Trivia between two giants

Umesh, their best bowler in their first match against KKR, did just that in the fourth over of the innings, changed its course nearly decisively.

The visitor has spinners of its own, in the Karnataka pair of K. Gowtham and Shreyas Gopal, both of whom have bowled only five overs between them in Rajasthan's two matches, but may expect to play a greater role here.

Umesh Yadav, 30, didn't get to play a Test on the South Africa tour, played his last ODI last September and has featured in just T20 worldwide, in 2012. Punjab were 32/0 after three overs and were staring at a big total. The very next ball - and the first faced by Australia's Aaron Finch in this edition of the IPL - trapped the Kings XI No.3 in front for his second victim.

The 17-year-old Afghan, who was bought for ₹4 crore, has a variety of off-breaks and carrom balls in his arsenal and he bowled Kohli with a googly from the back of the hand; there was not a murmur in the crowd. So, I bowled that first ball a little fuller hoping he'd attempt a big shot, and he did exactly that (caught behind). Just after that, Mandeep also got run out in the same over.

IPL is very ruthless and your reputation doesn't count much and Yuvraj has to pull up his socks and play like a senior batsman. Virat tried taking charge but got out at just 21 runs made off 16 balls.

Rahul looked set to hit another half-century, smashing for sixes, and along with Karun Nair, added 58 runs for the fourth wicket before Washington elicited a top-edge that found Sarfaraz.

There were two separate occasions during their chase of 155 that Bangalore lost pairs of wickets in quick succession.

Guardiola: 'Man Utd can still win the Premier League'
But while City are still overwhelming favourites to be crowned champions, Guardiola admits there could be further slip-ups. When I heard pundits and fans in November they said it's all done, it's impossible for City to drop points.

Earlier, in a stark contrast from Ashwin's strategy of bowling only spin in the Powerplay, Kohli waited till after the Powerplay to bowl his spinners.

Umesh Yadav's three for 23 had helped RCB restrict Punjab to 155 but the pursuit of that target was far from straightforward.

De Villiers offered some numbers from the past seasons while assessing how RCB fared so poorly in IPL 10.

Needing seven runs in three balls, Jadhav (24 not out) who got retired hurt, scooped a six over short fine leg and then slammed a boundary at covers off Mustafizur Rahman to clinch a thriller for his team. After Kohli's wicket there was a pin drop silence at Chinnaswamy and Bangalore were in a precarious position at 33/2.

From the perspective of finding form, even Ben Stokes is yet to deliver for the Royals and RCB will be well aware of his destructive capabilities.

Incoming batsmen Suresh Raina (4) also struggled in the middle but Rayudu kept on scoring runs at the other end.
