The 28th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) witnessed Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) locking horns at Sharjah. RCB decided to show up with the bat first and displayed a breathtaking show to win the contest by huge 82 runs. All the batters contributed well to the team’s score, but it was AB de Villiers who stole the limelight, and the team won the thriller by 82 runs. He played a phenomenal knock of 73* off 33 to help RCB register a big win.
De Villiers was named as the player of the match for his thunderous innings with the bat. Aaron Finch contributed 47 off 37 from his bat, and cameos by young Devdutt Padikkal (32 off 23) and skipper Virat Kohli (33* off 28) also remained essential. Varun Chakravarthy conceded just 25 runs in his spell. Prasidh Krishna and Andre Russell picked one wicket each for KKR.
RCB’s bowling took them home
Hunting down the hefty target, the batting line up of KKR crumbled under the pressure and couldn’t do the required job for the team. Shubman Gill’s knock of 34 runs was the only satisfactory thing from KKR’s end. Yuzvendra Chahal and Chris Morris were splendid from RCB’s bowling unit as they conceded just 12 and 17 runs, respectively in their spell. After winning this match, RCB now have 10 points in their bag and have jumped to 3rd position in the points table.
