RCB MIX-UP – Turning Point of the Match
Both batters at one end, DK was a goner. But the throw is wayward at the striker’s end and DK survives. Umesh with a throw to the wrong end.

KKR Captain Speech
Shreyas Iyer: I thought this game was exciting. Before coming in to the bowl, I told the boys this game could define our character. The way we fought reflects our mentality. Proud to have taken it till the last over. At the end, I decided to go with Venky because he has some experience bowling at the international level. Important to give confidence to the players as early as possible. Wicket was two-paced, bounce was odd. Wanindu bowled really well. We decided we’ll play him as an off spinner, unfortunately didn’t go to plan.
RCB Winning Captain Speech
Faf du Plessis: Very happy. Good win, obviously chasing small scores, you want to be positive and not leave it late, but it was good bowling from their seamers. Tonight there was seam and bounce, first night it swung a bit more. Two-three days ago, it was 200 v 200. Tonight it was 120 v 120, pretty good. In an ideal world, we would’ve liked to have won more convincingly but a win is a win. DK’s experience helped in the end, cool-calm, runs weren’t never really too far away. He’s probably as cool as MS Dhoni can get in the last five overs.
Wanindu Hasaranga is the Player of the Match for his four-for.
Abhilash: “MoM is really difficult- Harshal’s twin wicket (including dre russ) maiden overs, Hasaranga’s Quadra wickets, shabaz and rutherford contributions at crucial moments”
Bihag: “The number of runs Russell conceded in 2.2 overs is same as what Southee and Umesh conceded in 8 overs. “
Marten: “Shreyas’s attitude and captaincy skills are refreshing. Kept a smile on despite everything. Good show overall.”
RCB vs KKR Match Highlights
A solid effort that will please Faf du Plessis and the millions of RCB fans. They won a good toss and did everything asked of their bowlers. Akash Deep was tapped around but had better returns with three wickets, while Wanindu Hasaranga sliced through the middle order in a terrific spell, picking up four wickets. Later in the piece, Harshal Patel, with his truckloads of variations, brought his experience to the fore to keep the lower order honest. RCB would’ve taken this at the toss and will back themselves to chase this down.
RCB made it tougher than they would’ve liked. For a moment, their faithful would’ve gone “here we go, again”, but they found a saviours in Sherfane Rutherford, Shahbaz Ahmed, Dinesh Karthik and Harshal Patel in a small chase that was made that much more tougher. RCB specifically held back DK for a scenario like this, and it worked out in the end.
