RCB Vs KXIP 06/05/2013 - Results,Review and Statistical Highlights
This match was a very important one for the Kings XI Punjab as they need to win most of their remaining matches if they want to qualify for the playoffs.Royal Challengers Bangalore on the other hand were confident after they achieved a comfortable victory over the Pune Warriors outside the comfort of their home ground.Lets now take a closer look at the Batting and Bowling Review along with the results of the match.
Royal Challengers Bangalore batting once again started with a Gayle Storm,Despite having a great start the Kings XI Punjab ensured they pulled things back but ended with a formidable target thanks to AB De Villiers who was able to get 21 Runs of their final over.The pitch was definitely good for batting which meant it was expected to be a run feast throughout.
Kings XI Punjab were very good with their bowling during the mid innings but gave away a lot of runs towards the end which made things tougher for them as their last over helped the Royal Challengers Bangalore post a more than competitive target.
When the Kings XI Punjab came into bat they were looking to chase down a target which was a very stiff one.They lost a couple of early wickets which didn't help their cause but David miller who was the best highlights of their innings played superbly as he tore the Royal Challengers Bangalore bowling apart with his superb hitting.He is undoubtedly one of the best hitters of a cricket ball.
Royal Challengers Bangalore bowling was good to start with as they picked up early wickets but none of their bowlers had any answer to David Miller as he single handedly ensured that the Kings XI Punjab stayed in the match throughout their batting innings and helped them win the match with around a couple of overs left.
