Kohli: Samson played a brilliant innings

  • K L Rahul

Put in to bat, KXIP started well, but Umesh Yadav struck thrice in his second over, and Kulwant Khejroliya (2 for 33) and Washington Sundar (2 for 22) stifled the middle order with their strikes to restrict them to 155 in 19.2 overs. His unbeaten knock drew widespread applause from the cricketing fraternity while skipper Ajinkya Rahane bestowed him with compliments and identified him as the future of Indian cricket. He didn't play his usual game but managed to score quickly and take the pressure off D'arcy Short. With scores of 4, 6 and 11, and with South African Heinrich Klaasen waiting in the wings for an opportunity, Short will need to show something soon or face losing his spot in the side.

Batting first, RR made 217 for 4 and in reply RCB scored 198 for 6.

Brendon McCullum's poor form continued as he once again perished for single digit. He got the wicket of unsafe Brendon McCullum at Mujib ur Rahim on the second ball of the second over.

Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) began their record chase in right earnest but they were derailed by the Bangalore's own boys, Shreyas Gopal and Krishnappa Gowtham, who are not turning up for the Royals. Kohli in the process became the second batsman after Suresh Raina to score 4500-plus runs in IPL.

Put into bat, Samson sent the bowlers on a leatherhunt hitting as many as 10 sixes and two fours. Samson was ably supported with cameos from Ben Stokes (27), Jos Buttler (23) and Rahul Tripathi (14*).

RR jump to the third spot while RCB remain intact at the sixth position in the 2018 IPL points table.

Virat Kohli: Team's looking good, we're going to bowl first today as well. While in their second match, RR recovered from a poor start to post a reasonable total in a rain-affected contest against the Delhi Daredevils.

After Royals sprinted to 52 for the loss of Rahane in the Powerplay, Yuzvendra Chahal set them back by bowling leg breaks wide of off stump. Two overs later, de Villiers holed out off a similar ball.

Tournament: This is the 11th match of IPL 2018.

Kohli took just 26 balls to reach a half century on his way to a 57-run total, beating his previous best of 28, before falling to Shreyas Gopal (2-22), who also claimed the wicket of AB de Villiers two overs later. He was out in the 18th over but by then he has taken the match to the threshold of victory with RCB needing just 10 runs from 1.5 overs.
