IPL 2019: KKR won by 5 wickets against RCB
Does any bowler know how to stop Andre Russell when he starts bombarding? Russell once again got KKR over the line in a next to impossible chase. A fiery 9 balls 47 runs by Russell Muscle made KKR win over RCB.
Dinesh Karthik won the toss and put Virat Kohli and team to bat.
RCB Playing XI – V Kohli(c), P Patel (wk), AB de Villiers, M Stoinis, M Ali, A Nath, N Saini, T Southee, Y Chahal, M Siraj, P Negi.
After losing four games back to back, batsmen did not let the momentum affect the fresh game. Parthiv Patel and Virat Kohli opened the innings. Kohli was in his brutal form hitting back to back shots. Patel was playing calmly defending the wicket until he got his leg before wicket on Rana’s ball.
AB de Villiers joined in the RCB skipper and both smashed bowlers from left right and centre. When Kohli and Villiers keep going there is no stopping for RCB. The duo registered 100 plus score for the second wicket.
Kohli smacked a brilliant 49 balls 84 beating Suresh Raina and achieving the feat of the highest run scorer in IPL. Villiers too made 63 runs off 32 balls. Marcus Stoinis played a handy part by making 28 in 13 balls which got RCB to a total of 205.
Shahrukh’s boys had a tough task in front of them
KKR Playing XI – S Narine, C Lynn, R Uthappa, N Rana, D Karthik (c & wk), S Gill, A Russell, P Chawla, K Yadav, P Krishna, L Ferguson.
KKR came in action with flying colours. Chris Lynn, Robin Uthappa, and Nitish Rana and the skipper Dinesh Karthik too contributed in the chasing the monumental total. Pressure on both sides was equal as though lost 5 wickets but Russell was still there.
53 in last 3 overs. Sounds like a joke? No, when Russell is there this achievable that too easily. With 7 sixes and 1 boundary, he smacked 48 off just 13 deliveries. Russell has been delivering another level of batting this edition. Everyone praised the man for his wonderful match-winning knock.
