Star openers Aaron Pinch and Devthu Patikkal gave a good start this afternoon, but soon after the fall of the opening wickets the division began to lose its grip. Sam Curran, with his stellar spelling, forced Aaron Pinch 15 (11) to return to the pavilion soon. In the first match of the season, Mitchell Sandner was ruled out of the RCP when he was knocked out by an angel 22 (21). Soon lost another crucial wicket.
Despite losing crucial early wickets, Royal Challengers Bangalore impressed the cricketers this afternoon as captain Kohli and ABD sewn more than 50 partnerships for the team. The team suffered another major setback with the fall of AB de Villiers wicket, followed by Moin Ali. The death over turned out to be unfortunate for the RCB as Kohli was ruled out of the match, but made a solid 50 contribution to the team.
Speaking of Men in Yellow, Sam Curran and Mitchell Sandner presented some bowls that prevent RCP batsmen from going to the maximum. S Curran made a big contribution to CSK by removing two key wickets with his attack. Fans can appreciate the amazing fielding combination of Faff and Keyquad.
It remains to be seen whether Kohli will be able to book his squad a playoff spot with a win or CSK, which looks set to be almost over this season, will end up at a high level before exiting the tournament.
