Gayle played his part as King XI knocked down the Royal Challenger again



Kings XI have struggled to win in 2020 but have won both games against Bangalore, albeit surviving a late-night spin on Thursday.

 

Gail scored 53 off 45 balls but was run out’ with multiple deliveries with the score level. Nicholas Pooran came out and faced the same ball, due to which he scored six runs and went down to the ground.

 

An eight-wicket victory gave Kings XI new hope for the season, although they remained at the bottom of the list.

 

Rahul, who was dismissed’ for 132 in the last meeting of the two franchises, was not out for 61 in the process of increasing his lead at the top of the scoring table.

 

Opening partner Mian Agarwal weighed in at 45 as Bangalore's 171-6 was not enough despite an unexpected last overplay.

 

Virat Kohli top-scored with 48 but the Royal Challengers struggled to get a run-off rate, leaving AB de Villiers sixth in the order with a score of six. ۔

 

South Africa scored just two runs but compatriot Chris Morris was much more successful in the final stages, eight balls off eight balls saw him not out 25 runs.

 

De Villiers is ready to wait

 

De Villiers was performing explosively against Kolkata Knight Riders after the last dismissal; he played unbeaten innings of 73 off 33 balls.

 

Despite this explosive display of kills, Bangalore sent both Washington Sundar and Shyam Doob ahead of them, before they finally came up with four overs.

 

THE UNIVERSE BOSS IS BACK!

 

Gail's participation in the tournament was delayed’ due to food poisoning, which caused magic in the hospital. They battled for Kings XI in an unknown position of three, the opening pair scored 78 runs.

 

After a careful start, the left hand cut loose with the help of four and five sixes alone. His demise even included a bit of drama, but Pooran ended up working in style with Yuzvendra Chahal's maximum success.
