What do you do when your side puts on 205 runs on the board and still can’t end up defending them? With 75 runs needed by KKR in the last 4 overs, the result of the match looked all but certain, etched to give RCB their first win of the league before an inclement bowling display by Siraj and Southee saw the Virat Kohli lead outfit concede another match from their grasps.

The result couldn’t have been rounded off more perfectly by a dejected Kohli who said the side were let down by huge lapses in the bowling, with no composure being shown in the final stages to take their side across the line.

With the spinners giving away just 45 runs in their 7 overs, RCB were romping on their way to a win. The wickets were coming at regular intervals and as the run rate kept skyrocketing, this was an encounter that was sealed in their favour before Siraj single-handedly decided to ruin things for his side.

Giving away 36 runs in 14 balls, Siraj who came onto bowl the 18th over was taken apart for 3 sixes by Russel with it all beginning with a height related no-ball that was dispatched straight across the fence. As the equation fell from 52 needed in 18 balls to 30 in the final 2 overs, RCB had no one but themselves to blame for continuing to persist with a bowler who has time and again shown his inabilities to bowl competently.

From that over onwards, the match completely turned on its head as RCB remarkably managed to throw it. Southee, playing his first match of the tournament, bowled in all the wrong areas, with length and room given to Russel who pummelled his over, taking 29 runs off it in 13 balls 48 run innings with 7 sixes that meant RCB were left staring at an abysmal defeat.

Earlier in the day, on a completely placid track, built for the batsmen to come out and amass a bagful of runs on, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers took the onus of taking the target to as high as possible for their side. A 108-run stand between the duo saw them set the foundation for a 205-run total with both playing shots all around the park, taking on the bowlers in a manner that only the world’s best batsmen are capable of. It was a star-studded display, one that deserved to end up on the winning side.
