IPL 2018 | RCB vs RR: Match 11, stats review

Umesh Yadav, a right-arm-fast bowler of the hosts, has been an important contributor who took three wickets in Punjab to stop this score.

Apart from skipper Ajinkya Rahane and batsman Sanju Samson, rest of the team is yet to show their best.

The Royals, however, began nervously, with D'Arcy Short unable to break free against RCB's spinners and his hesitancy continued between wickets, although neither partner ran each other out this time. Just after that, Mandeep also got run out in the same over.

Ben Stokes took an excellent catch of Brendon McCullum 4 runs (4 balls) and Krishnappa Gowtham got his first wicket in the first over.

In the second game, Punjab survived a big scare from MS Dhoni (79* off 44 balls) as they beat CSK by 4 runs in a thrilling encounter in Mohali.

It's all happening here at Chinnaswamy stadium, Jos Buttler has missed out on stumping chance of AB Devilliers. Kohli in the process became the second batsman after Suresh Raina to score 4500-plus runs in IPL.

Soon Darcy Short top-edged which landed safe into the hands of wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock after he had made 11 runs of 17 balls with one boundary, leaving the score at 53 for two in 6.5 overs. Samson obliterated the Bengaluru bowlers to stroke 10 maximums and two boundaries to anchor Royals to the behemoth total.

RR jump to the third spot while RCB remain intact at the sixth position in the 2018 IPL points table. Both teams have played two games each so far, with one win each. De Villiers upped the ante, hitting two towering sixes off Mujeeb in an over where RCB collected 19 runs. With the likes of Suresh Raina and Kedhar Jadhav out of action, CSK will have to strike a balance between the Indian and overseas players to ensure they put a match-winning unit out at the PCA Stadium.

Rajasthan Royals lost their opener against Sunrisers Hyderabad, but came back strongly in the rain-affected contest against the Delhi Daredevils.

India's star spinner in limited overs cricket Yuzvendra Chahal is also 11/4 but the pick is Chris Woakes at 3/1.

Bangalore was restricted to 198-6 in reply, left behind in its run-chase once captain Virat Kohli (57 off 30) and AB de Villiers (20 off 18) holed out in the deep off legspinner Shreyas Gopal (2-22).

Together with Ravindra Jadeja (19), Dhoni smashed seamers Mohit Sharma (1-47) and Andrew Tye (2-47) for 38 runs before Sharma kept his nerve and conceded 12 in the last over to earn Punjab its second win.
