It was carnage at the Eden Gardens on Friday. No, it wasn’t Andre Russell for a change. It was the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) batsmen Moeen Ali and Virat Kohli smacking the ball to all the parts of the ground. The duo literally ripped apart the KKR’s bowling attack to propel the team to a huge total of 213 runs after 20 overs. Though Kohli scored a century and stole all the limelight, it was Moeen who started it all against Kuldeep Yadav.

The chinaman had a tough day at the office on the day. One felt that all was going KKR’s way until the 14th over started and the momentum completely changed in the 16th over. Moeen Ali launched an assault on Kuldeep who had conceded 32 runs in his three overs by then.

No one saw the brute force coming from Ali. He shuffled around his crease and even as Kuldeep flighted every next delivery, the southpaw got under it to smack it over the boundary. The bowler also tried to throw in a pacy delivery but the England batsman was in the zone on the day and he didn’t spare the 24-year-old.

After going for 27 runs in an over, Kuldeep Yadav managed to have the last laugh. He finally got the better of Moeen Ali and most importantly, he had a chat with his skipper Dinesh Karthik before the delivery. But the damage was already done and he didn’t celebrate the wicket.

Rather after the over, in the strategic time out, Kuldeep, sat down at the boundary dejected and there were tears coming out of his eyes. His teammates tried to console him but his confidence was completely and his poor season turned worse on Friday. Kuldeep returned with the figures of 1/59 in his four overs as RCB posted a mammoth total on the board.

Here’s how Twitter consoled the youngster:
