RR Stuns RCB In Their Own Backyard


No score is safe in T20 it seems. Till the last ball is bowled no captain can feel safe and relived at all. When Yuvraj Singh and AB de Villiers were tonking the RR bowlers all over the Chinnaswamy Stadium, things looked grim and over for RR. Even when Yuvraj took 4 RR wickets and the last Yuzvendra Chahal over cost only 5 runs it looked that RR perhaps has shut the shop but then what happened was just incredible. Two Australians in Steven Smith and James Faulkner wrote an amazing script and chased 190 with 7 balls to spare!!
