Miller and Sandeep Sink RCB


The only thing RCB did right in this game was perhaps to keep KXIP under 200, this was their sole achievement of this game. Despite knowing the fact that RCB is the same team who few years back chased down 200+ score against the same opponents on the same ground, the writing was on the wall as soon as Gayle first struggled and got out again to Sandeep Sharma. Although debatable, but a bold decision by umpire K Srinath sent Virat Kohli packing in the same over and RCB’s fate was sealed despite some heroics to come from AB de Villiers later in the innings.
