At the point when 53 runs were required from 18 balls, the Royal Challengers Bangalore camp would have imagined that they were at long last going to secure their first focuses in IPL 2019. Be that as it may, Kolkata Knight Riders' Andre Russell had different plans. Mohammed Siraj appeared to have things leveled out when he bowled two back to back spot balls in the eighteenth over. In any case, that was the start of the end for RCB. ((Full Scorecard))
In the wake of bowling a wide, Siraj bowled his second beamer of the match and in this manner he wasn't permitted to bowl any longer. Marcus Stoinis was called up to complete the over and Russell prepared for a free hit. The 30-year-old hit two successive sixes and decreased the condition to 30 keeps running from two overs. Shubman Gill reasonably took a solitary and gave the strike to Russell in the primary bundle of the nineteenth over. And afterward the bloodletting started.
Russell pummeled Tim Southee for four sixes and a limit and for all intents and purposes completed off the match in five conveyances. Southee couldn't get his yorkers right and he was crushed everywhere throughout the recreation center. Russell helped KKR win a match from the jaws of annihilation by and by. He stayed unbeaten on 48 from 13 balls as Gill struck the triumphant keep running off the last over by Pawan Negi. The Kolkata Knight Riders won the match by five wickets with five balls to save.
RCB captain Virat Kohli said that the bowlers' execution in the last four overs was unsuitable.
"There is no speculating there (about where they lost), the last four overs that we bowled was simply unsuitable. We should have been increasingly sharp, nothing fell off and we simply split under strain. That has been our story this season up until this point. In the event that you bowl with insufficient fortitude in the significant overs, it's continually going to be troublesome against power-hitters like Russell," said Kohli.
Be that as it may, Kohli included RCB are as yet idealistic about their odds of achieving the play-offs.
"You have to give the folks some space and return more grounded in the following diversion. It's been a disillusioning season up until now, yet we are as yet hopeful about our odds. We simply need to have faith in ourselves that we can turn things around," said Virat Kohli.
