Knight Riders fall flat in the Royal Challenge

Oct 22, 2020 00:46 IST

After thrashing Kolkata Knight Riders by 82 runs in their previous encounter, Royal Challengers Bangalore completed a double once again with a thrashing. Probably the only positive for Eoin Morgan was that he won the toss because it all went downhill from there. The first four wickets fell with 14 on the board with Mohd Siraj picking up the first double-wicket maiden in IPL 2020. Siraj also became the first bowler in IPL history to bowl 2 maiden overs in a game. In fact, RCB became the first team to bowl 3 maiden overs in one match. KKR skipper Eoin Morgan waged a lone battle as he found some support in Kuldeep Yadav and Lockie Ferguson. The Knight Riders were stopped at 84-8 in 20 overs which is the lowest total in a 20-over IPL innings without getting bowled out. In reply, Virat Kohli's men reached the target with 8 wickets and more than 6 overs to spare. This is the fourth win for RCB in the last 5 games as they jump to second on the points table.
