RCB vs KXIP IPL match highlights – Cruise To 10 Wicket Victory
- RCB won by 10 wickets
- They chased down 89
- The win keeps them alive in the race for the playoffs
What a dampener yesterday’s match turned out to be. Billed as a clash between the two best batting sides in the tournament, Kings XI Punjab failed to impress. The match ended up being won with the bowl instead in the end with the Royal Challengers Bangalore blowing apart Punjab. Dismissing a heavy loaded batting unit for just 88, Bangalore did not miss a beat as they chased the target down successfully by 10 wickets. The win boosted their run rate by a huge mile which in turn helps them stay alive in this year’s IPL.
Coming back to RCB vs KXIP IPL match highlights, a struggling Punjab side for whom things have been going downhill ever since a spat between owner Preity Zinta and coach Virender Sehwag became public, needed a win yesterday more than anything else to get back on track in their quest for the playoff spot. However, that particular incident has had more effect on the team than we have imagined. Despite Punjab’s PR team coming out to clarify that there was no argument between the two, insiders believe the story to be entirely different.

“However, when Preity continued to blame him, saying ‘unnecessary’ tinkering with the playing XI had led to a spate of defeats, Sehwag tried to reason with her. Viru had told the other owners to rein in Preity. He told the owners that he’ll not comment on Preity’s acting chops and she should refrain from talking about his cricketing acumen,” a franchise source said.
The impact of the unrest in the team’s management has come down heavily on the team’s performance. In dire need of a win, Punjab failed miserably as they slumped to one of the lowest total this season. A magnificent spell of pace bowling by Umesh Yadav and Tm Southee decimated Punjab’s batsmen who had no answers to the hot fire being constantly breathed on them.
In reply RCB who dominated on the day in one of their best performances, this season showed Punjab that the pitch was much easier than they had made it out to be as they scored the winning runs without losing a wicket.
