KXIP vs RCB Match Report 6

Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) beat Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by 97 runs in the sixth match of the Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 in Dubai on Thursday. 

KXIP kick-started the match with Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul hitting some really amazing shots against Umesh Yadav, Dale Steyn and Navdeep Saini, helping their side to move past fifty in the final over of the powerplay. Well, it was Yuzvendra Chahal’s introduction into the attack that gave RCB their first breakthrough as the leg-spinner broke through Mayank’s defence and hit the woodwork.


It was Rahul who brought up his fifty and KXIP crossed the 100-run mark in the 12th over with nine wickets in hand. The 13th over of the game went for 14 runs. Further, Shivam Dube struck twice in the space of his two overs. First, he broke the Pooran-Rahul stand, dismissing the left-hander, and in his next over – 16th of KXIP innings, he got Glenn Maxwell out.

But finally, Dube was the next man to get out before Bishnoi scalped his second wicket, dismissing Umesh and Washington Sundar in his final over for 30. Next, Murugan Ashwin picked up the last two wickets as KXIP bowled out RCB for 109 and made a win.
