  • Preview Kohli comes home as RCB look to keep play-off hopes alive against Delhi Daredevils

There catching was on point too barring an initially dropped chance of Gayle by Parthiv which didn't prove too costly in the end.

Meanwhile, Royal Challengers Bangalore are also struggling in this season and will be knocked out of the tournament if they lose another game. Their stars are starting to click with the bat and the bowlers are executing their plans as well.

RCB can make it upto 4th spot in the standings table, if it happens to win all the remaining matches.

Rahul continued his scintillating form in the IPL by smacking two fours and seven sixes as Punjab's top order crumbled around him.


Umesh Yadav's short-pitched deliveries got the big wickets of Lokesh Rahul (21) and Chris Gayle (14) as Punjab was bowled out for 88 in 15.1 overs after Bangalore won the toss and opted to field. KL Rahul, whereas has been the most consistent batsman of the IPL. They fail to show charming performance on the ground. Suddenly, both their batting as well as bowling have started to look weak. It defeat Delhi Daredevils in its last encounter. He broke into an animated jig, and his team was in such a dominant position that he could afford at least one slip till the end of Kings XI's innings. That means that although RCB has had a stop-start season, Kohli is still in the running for the Orange Cap. "We still got three days till the next game, we just want to enjoy the break till then", he said. "It cost us 10-12 balls to get the victory".

There have been plenty of changes in the batting line-up but they finally seem to have settled on one with Moeen Ali and Parthiv Patel opening the innings. Kohli and Parthiv remained unbeaten till the end as they chase down 88 easily.

In three matches at the Holkar Cricket Stadium at Indore, the average first innings score sits at 190 but that has been skewed heavily by KKR's effort on Saturday. They can progress even with one win if both KXIP and RR don't win all their remaining games. On a pitch that will be conducive to big hitting, RCB has an upper hand irrespective of the outcome of the toss. Although they will be high on confidence after the way they defeated the Delhi Daredevils in last match where both Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers batted brilliantly. They lost four wickets totally. The winning momentum they started to gather was arrested by the loss to RR at the Wankhede and they now need other results to go their way to qualify. They have failed to get breakthroughs because of which betsmen have found it easy to rotate strike between wickets. The Punjab openers have been a major reason behind their success as the two have handed a flawless start to their side on several occasions in this year's edition.

The Challengers have been eliminated from the tournament, but they can still spoil the party for a few teams.
