RCB Beats KKR Highlights – Hasranga, Akash Deep Destroys KKR Batting: RCB captain Faf du Plessis won the toss and put KKR in the bat and his bowlers delivered immediately.
Mohammed Siraj and Akash Deep struck three times in the power play. KKR tried to attack from the start and kept losing wickets as Wanindu Hasaranga spun a web around KKR’s mid-order.
Hasaranga took the wickets of Shreyas Iyer, Sam Billings, Sheldon Jackson and Tim Southee in a fine bout of bowling as KKR struggled to even make the 100 run.
Andre Russell hit a few lusty punches in the middle, but was outdone by Harshal Patel. KKR had fallen to 101/9, but Umesh Yadav and Varun Chakravarthy added some crucial runs for the last wicket to take KKR to 128.
RCB defeated KKR Highlights † Dinesh Karthik, Harshal Patel help RCB survive a fear: In response, Umesh Yadav and Tim Southee had RCB on 17/3.
The specialists of Testmatch get a good seam movement out of the track.
David Willey and Shelfane Rutherford controlled their attacking instincts and patiently put together a 45-run score before Sunil Narine struck and sent Willey away.
RCB surprisingly promoted Shahbaz Ahmed and the move worked like a charm. The southpaw scored a rapid fire of 27 to bring Bangalore back into the game.
However, a late turn saw Shahbaz, Rutherford and Hasaranga all leave in quick succession.
KKR tried their best to defend a modest total. However, veteran Dinesh Karthik and Harshal Patel got RCB over the line for their first win of the season.

KKR Scorecard – 129/10
Ajinkya Rahane and Venkatesh Iyer to open for KKR. David Willey to open the bowling for RCB.
At the time of the throw, Faf du Plessis said: ‘Let’s go bowling. The pitch is similar, but it feels a bit tacky. Lots of positives, the first 3-4 overs were challenging, the way we went through. From a bowling perspective, you are expected to not get everything perfect. Same XI. Nice to start the tournament like this, hopefully I can do that again.”
Kolkata Captain Shreyas Iyer said: “I also wanted to bowl. Dew plays a major role. The bowlers did a great job making it easy for the batsmen. Now it’s going to be a test for us to come in and bat and make sure we get a good total. It’s just a performance work. Tim Southee comes in for Shubham Mavi. That’s the only change we’re making.”

Pitch Report: “The wicket looks a lot drier than the first game, not as much live grass on the surface. I still have a feeling it’s going to be a good wicket. The limit size is not that big, straight is quite small. If Kolkata can get a good base up front and Andre Russell can get in, he’s definitely going to clear here and hit some big sixes. I’ll definitely go bowling first. It gets wet here, quite difficult to control”, says Morne Morkel.
