IPL 2018: RCB Bowls Out KXIP For 88, Fans Call For Change In Captaincy!

IPL 2018, KXIP vs RCB: Umesh Yadav (3/23) came up with an impressive bowling effort up front to destabilise the Kings XI innings

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) made a mockery of Kings XI Punjab’s (KXIP) batting line-up as they bowled them out for just 88 in a must-win Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 match at the Holkar Stadium in Indore on May 14.

Sent to bat by RCB skipper Virat Kohli after winning the toss, KXIP kept losing wickets at the regular intervals and they were bowled out in 15.1 overs.

For RCB, pacer Umesh Yadav (3/23) came up with an impressive bowling effort up front to destabilise the Kings XI innings. Besides, Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal (1/6), Colin de Grandhomme (1/8), Moeen Ali (1/13) and Mohammed Siraj (1/17) picked up a wicket each. RCB bowlers were very well complemented by some good outfield catching and three run-outs.

Aaron Finch top-scored for Kings XI with a 23-ball 26 while KL Rahul made 21 up the order.

Following KXIP’s dismissal show, Bollywood actress Preity Zinta’s co-owned franchise faced the heat on Twitter as fans started trolling them by calling them ‘Çhokers’.

Here are some of the reactions:

Brief Scores: Kings XI Punjab 88 (Aaron Finch 26, Lokesh Rahul 21; Umesh Yadav 3/23) vs Royal Challengers Bangalore.
