Are you ready?
Let’s get started.
Match number 31 of IPL 13 is between RCB vs KXIP.
How about a recap of their previous matches in this season.
RCB faced KKR is their recent match that was played in Sharjah. RCB won the toss and decided to bat first. Aaron Finch (47) and Devdutt Paddikal (32) started the inning and gave them a solid start. Start was not as fierce as we all were expecting. After losing these two wickets came the duo of Virat Kohli & ABD. Virat was rotating the strike while ABD was hitting fours and sixes. Kohli was 33 in 28 balls while ABD was 73 of 33 balls. This made RCB reach 194 with the loss of 2 wickets only.
Chasing 194 was not easy due to pressure but not difficult coz the dimensions of the ground is low as compared to other grounds. KKR’s opening was not that good as they lost early wickets and kept on losing wickets one after the other. Shubhman Gill, Andre Russell and Rahul Tripathi tried to build a inning but that was too late as the asking rate was climbing due to big target. RCB’s Bolwers bowled and every one took a wicket each. Morris and W. Sundar took two wickets each. KKR scored 112 for 9 in 20.
KXIP played their recent match against KKR. KKR won the toss decided to bat first. In the starting overs it did not seemed to be a good idea to bat as they lost early wickets. 2 wickets for 14 runs in 3.2 overs. But innings got stable because of the opener Shubhman Gill who stayed and made sure they dont lose wickets from other end. Dinesh Karthik was the game changer. He scored 58 with a strike rate of 200 and Gill scored 57 of 47 balls. Ravi Bishnoi and Arshdeep Singh were economical took a wicket each.
In chasing KXIP was in control till 16-17 over. Both the openers were well set and scored 50+ runs but then wickets started to fell and that when it all turned and went towards KKR’s side. Prasidh Krishna took 3 wickets. Sunil Narine changed the game and turned it towards KKR. Defended 11 runs in the last over when Maxwell was on strike. It was unfortunate for KXIP though that they lost the match by a couple of inches. KL Rahul (74) and Mayank Aggarwal (56) played great innings.
