RCB vs RR: Clash of Royals at Bengaluru

AB de Villiers was at his vintage best, as he powered Royal Challengers Bangalore to win against Kings XI Punjab in the eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League on Friday.

Aaron Finch, who was unavailable for the last match, also may get a chance.

There were two separate occasions during their chase of 155 that Bangalore lost pairs of wickets in quick succession.

Umesh Yadav has now won seven man of the match awards in the IPL - the most by a specialist fast bowler in the tournament.

Winning the toss, Dhoni opted to bowl first and opined his side love to chase, a statement which was hence proved right by his boys. He got the wicket of unsafe Brendon McCullum at Mujib ur Rahim on the second ball of the second over.

The Match 8 of IPL Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kings XI Punjab will be broadcasted on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports Select 1 and Star Sports Select 1 HD in English Commentary. His 40-ball 57 was a teaser of how impactful his presence could be on an opposite side. Before they can get to nullifying the South Africa's threat, there's Brendon McCullum at the top, who has a free pass to swing at anything directed his way, and Virat Kohli - who has so far succumbed to a part-timer's full ball and a promissing spinner's early contender for ball-of-the-season. Mandeep Singh then supported De Villiers during the 59-run fifth wicket partnership. He fell in the 19th over, holing out to deep point off Andrew Tye, but Washington Sundar's two boundaries off the last over ensured RCB managed to draw curtains on the horrid run endured last season.

Mandeep Singh joined De Villiers at the crease and the duo kept the scoreboard ticking with the help of singles and doubles.

Earlier, KL Rahul (47, 30b, 2x4, 4x6) provided Kings XI with an identical start he had delivered for them against Delhi Daredevils in their opener in Mohali.

"I really enjoyed Yuvraj Singh's wicket".

The Punjab innings, however, began with a bang with Rahul taking 16 runs from the opening over bowled by Woakes whom he hit for a four and two sixes. Going at ten-per-over for the first three and looking to build, Umesh Yadav stepped up to first have Agarwal caught-behind off a regulation edge that was sharply taken by Quinton de Kock. 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. His innings ended when he attempted to put away Ashwin (2-30) for a big one but mistimed it with the ball crashing into the stumps. Punjab lost their last wicket as Mujib ur Rahim Rahman could not even open the account.
