Kings XI Punjab Innings

Over 20 | Score 138/7 – Axar Patel 38(17b); Varun Aaron 0(5b)

Last over.

Axar Patel started with a bang, a huge six over long-on. To the moon and back. Ball crashed into the stands, and returned to the field. No work needed for fielders. A double followed with Axar, playing behind square. Good effort from the Yuzvendra Chahal to stop it to two runs.

Then, back-to-back fours, first one through wide of short fine leg and the second one straight. A wide, then a double as Patel played towards long-off. A dot ball to end the over, and innings.

19 runs from it. Shane Watson’s figures: 4-0-43-1.

Over 19 | Score 119/7 – Axar Patel 20(11b); Varun Aaron 0(5b)

Aniket Choudhary on with his last over. He removed Mohit Sharma off the first ball, caught behind.

WICKET: Mohit Sharma c Kedar Jadhav b Aniket Choudhary 6 (4b)

It was followed by five dot balls to new man Varun Aaron. A wicket maiden from the 27-year-old. His figures: 4-1-17-2

KXIP scored 40 runs, losing two wickets in the last five overs. 

Over 18 | Score 119/6 – Axar Patel 20(11b); Mohit Sharma 6(3b)

Shane Watson returned for his third over. Aniket Choudhary committed a misfield at deep fine leg, which allowed KXIP batsmen to take a second run. But the very next ball, a deceptive slower delivery got the better of Wriddhiman Saha, clipping his off stump.

WICKET: Wriddhiman Saha b Shane Watson 21 (25b)

Two singles, then a four as new man Mohit Sharma got a thick outside edge. A single to end the eventful over.

Over 17 | Score 110/5 – Wriddhiman Saha 19(23b); Axar Patel 19(10b)

Aniket Choudhary returned for his third over. The left-arm medium pacer was brilliant in his two-overs spell in power play, conceding 6 runs for a wicket.

A single to start the over as Wriddhiman Saha played towards cover, where Virat Kohli fielded. Axar Patel took a double off the second ball, then a single. It was followed by a brilliantly timed four by Saha, beating the third man.

A single, then a double to make it a 11-run over.

Over 16 | Score 99/5 – Wriddhiman Saha 13(20b); Axar Patel 14(4b)

Yuzvendra Chahal on for his last over. A single to Wriddhiman Saha, then a wide. Axar Patel blocked the next ball, before hitting a six over long-on.

A dot, then a four for Patel, played past third man. A double to end the over. 15 runs from it. Chahal’s figures: 4-0-21-2


Over 15 | Score 84/5 – Wriddhiman Saha 12(19b); Axar Patel 0(0b)

One quick over from Samuel Badree. Only five runs – all singles. KXIP are in deep trouble. They have lost two crucial wickets in the last five overs, scoring only 29 runs.

Over 14 | Score 79/5 – Wriddhiman Saha 8(14b); Axar Patel 0(0b)

Yuzvendra Chahal continued with his third over. Four leg byes to start. Everyone missed it. Glenn Maxwell tried to played an expansive shot, but he missed the ball, and so thus the wicket keeper Kedar Jadhav.

A dot ball, then a similar scenario unfolded, for another four leg byes. A dot ball, then Chahal struck. Close call. Bowler’s landing foot seemed to miss the line. But the umpires thought otherwise.

Maxwell played another reverse sweep, but ended up lofting the ball for Samuel Badree to take an easy catch at short third man.

WICKET: Glenn Maxwell c Samuel Badree b Yuzvendra Chahal 6 (11b)

That happened off the fifth ball. Nine runs and a wicket from the over.

Over 13 | Score 70/4 – Wriddhiman Saha 8(14b); Glenn Maxwell 6(6b)

Pawan Negi returned for his third over. Two dot balls, then a couple of singles, then Glenn Maxwell took on the spinner, and played a reverse sweep for a four. The over ended with a leg bye. Seven runs from it.

In the last five overs, KXIP have scored 28 runs, losing one wicket.

Over 12 | Score 63/4 – Wriddhiman Saha 7(13b); Glenn Maxwell 1(1b)

Yuzvendra Chahal removed Manan Vohra off the second ball, caught at long-on by AB de Villiers. Good catch by the South African.

WICKET: Manan Vohra c AB de Villiers b Yuzvendra Chahal 25 (28b)

Three runs from the over, including a single from the bat of new man Glenn Maxwell.

Over 11 | Score 60/3 – Manan Vohra 25(27b); Wriddhiman Saha 5(9b)

Shane Watson continued with his second over. Good effort from the veteran all-rounder. He conceded five runs – all singles – off the first five balls.

For KXIP, Manan Vohra and Wriddhiman Saha are into rebuilding the innings.

Over 10 | Score 55/3 – Manan Vohra 23(24b); Wriddhiman Saha 2(6b)

Bowling change for RCB. Yuzvendra Chahal on, and the leg spinner got off to a brilliant start. Only one two runs – both singles – from it. He also almost got Wriddhiman Saha stumped, but the work from wicketkeeper was not up to the task.

Over 9 | Score 53/3 – Manan Vohra 22(22b); Wriddhiman Saha 1(2b)

One good over for the visitors with Manan Vohra hitting his first six of the day. 11 runs from the over.

Pawan Negi did well to control the flow of run, up until the fourth ball, then the six came to spoil the over.

Over 8 | Score 52/3 | Vohra 21, Saha 1

Vohra with the first maximum of the day. A 74 meter six to Negi. 10 runs of the over.

Over 7 | Score 42/3 | Vohra 11, Saha 1

Wriddhiman Saha in the new man sent in, considering the nature of bowlers (spinners) presently being utilised, Glenn Maxwell probably wanted to keep him away from the danger. 3 runs of Badree’s second over. 

Over 7 | Score 39/3 | Vohra 9

Pawan Negi the new man in, replaces Shane Watson in attack who was the most expensive of the lot so far in his first over. 4 singles off the first 5 deliveries and wicket off the sixth make this an incredible over for RCB. Shaun Marsh departs.

SE Marsh c Mandeep Singh b Negi 20 (17b)

Over 6 | Score 35/2 | Marsh 18, Vohra 7

Samuel Badree has been handed the responsibility of bowling the last over in the power play. Decent over for RCB. 6 runs off it!

Over 5 | Score 29/2 | Marsh 18, Vohra 1

Shane Watson has been brought into the attack by Virat Kohli. Expensive first over for the Aussie all-rounder. 10 off it!

Over 4 | Score 19/2 | Marsh 9, Vohra 0

Aravind strikes! The Kiwi Martin Guptil heads back to pavilion. Bengaluru crowd ecstatic with the way their team has performed so far. Manan Vohra the new batsman to walk in.

MJ Guptill c Negi b Aravind 9 (10b)

Over 3 | Score 15/1 | Guptil 9, Marsh 4

Choudhary with a good over once again. Not giving much room to Guptil and Marsh with spot on line and length. Skipper Kohli must be really happy with the way he has bowled so far.

Over 2 | Score 11/1 | Guptil 6, Marsh 4

Guptil, Marsh both get their first boundaries of the innings. 9 runs from Aravind’s first over as Punjab look to recover from first over hurdle quickly.

Over 1 | Score 2/1 | Guptil 1, Marsh 0

Shaky start for Kings XI Punjab as Choudhary removes Amla in the very first over. Some movement for the bowler early in the innings. Shaun Marsh the new batsman to walk in.

HM Amla c Jadhav b Choudhary 1 (3b)

With eight losses and two wins, Bangalore are currently at the eighth spot and are already out of the running for the IPL play-offs. 

Punjab, on the other hand, are coming into the fixture on the back of a 10-wicket win over Delhi Daredevils in their last outing, presently sitting fifth spot with four wins and five losses.

Failing in almost all departments of the game, Bangalore would certainly like to spoil Punjab`s party who are still in the race for the knockout stage.

Though the Kings are fifth in the table with eight points from four games they won out of nine played so far, another win will give them momentum to stay on course for play-offs.

Bangalore will blame their star-studded batting line-up for their predicament as despite boasting several quality batsmen like Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Shane Watson, they have failed to click in unison.

Looking to end the #ipl off with a few good results! Hopefully we can give the fans something to cheer about tonight at the Chinnaswamy.

The bowling and fielding departments are also not performing up to the standard for Bengalore. Many catches were dropped in the last match against Mumbai Indians which resulted in a five-wicket defeat for them.

The boys are on their way to the stadium! Chak de phatte sheron! #LivePunjabiPlayPunjbai #RCBvKXIP

On the other hand, after defeating Delhi by 10 wickets last week, Punjab are in a positive mood as both batsmen and bowlers are performing in unison.
