  • De Villiers fifty helps RCB home against Kings XI

Kings XI's teenager Mujeeb (1-29) also shone, bowling Kohli through the gate with a googly, while De Kock and Sarfaraz fell to Ashwin's spin - De Kock bowled and Sarfaraz, the third player in the match to depart first ball, clipping to slip.

Indian speedster Umesh Yadav has not had a great 2018 so far as the pacer has been out of Indian team despite being part of the squad and only been carrying drinks. Finch (0) had to go. Yuvraj Singh looks a pale shadow of his old self while captain Ashwin and Axar Patel lower in the order are not exactly power-hitters. A ball earlier, he had pulled Yadav for a four and was expecting the same from him the next ball. RCB bowlers bowled with a game plan and apart from Yadav (3/23), all other bowlers chipped in and restricted Punjab to 155. Dwayne Bravo's 30-ball 67 won Chennai their first game against Mumbai followed by another individual show by Sam Billings which got them over the mark against the KKR with Chepauk witnessing a victory lap from their beloved team after two years. At the end of 15th over, KXIP were 122 for 7 and they could add 33 more runs at the expense of three wickets thanks to Ashwin's breezy 21-ball 33. He came in to bowl the 12th over. Kohli known for shuffling his XI could get Colin de Grandhomme into action given that he can hit hard and bowl as well in place of Woakes. The wicketkeeper missed out on his 50 by five runs. The duo had put on 54 before De Kock was castled by an Ashwin straighter one on 45. However, he and Mandeep Singh struggled to score. Umesh, their best bowler in their first match against KKR, did just that in the fourth over of the innings, changed its course nearly decisively. But with de Villiers still there, the RCB had the batsman who can do the job.

Despite losing opener Brendon McCullum for nought and captain Virat Kohli for 21, De Kock and De Villiers looked in good form as they steered their team closer to the target.

Her office said that May had talked with US President Donald Trump by telephone on Thursday evening to discuss Syria. Russian Federation called the council meeting to challenge the West over the legality of the military action.


The IPL is a long tournament in terms of just how many matches there are, but it's also a short one in terms of the length of time those matches are squeezed into. The 17th over bowled by Mujeeb Ur Rahman turned out to the game changer as de Villiers hit two consecutive sixes out of 19 runs from that over.

Many people forget that both KL Rahul and Karun Nair play their domestic cricket for Karnataka and when the two of them were batting together against RCB, it felt odd.

Then the responsibility was performed well by AB de Villiers (57) and Mandeep Singh (22) till both got out in the 19th over providing some twist to the match.
