Kohli, de Villiers shine to keep Bangalore in race
RCB comfortably beat DD to register their fourth win in 11 games and keep their slim play-off hopes alive in IPL 2018 on Saturday. Kohli's gamble to start with wrist spinner Yuzvendra Chahal paid early dividends as Prithvi Shaw failed to read his wrong one.
Narine and Chris Lynn got KKR off to a fantastic start and put on 53 for the first wicket before Lynn was dismissed early in the sixth over. Having scored only seven off his first eight balls, he would smash 68 off his next 28, majority with loose-limbed lofts in the midwicket-to-cover arc.
The Windies-cricketer scored his second IPL fifty this year in 26 balls and then went on to score 75 runs. On this pitch, there was little anyone could do to stop the haemorrhage of runs. Every batsman who took charge played breezy cameos, which never allowed the momentum to shift to the opponents' camp.
Andre Russell was promoted to No.4 to keep the onslaught going and together with Karthik, the duo took the bowlers to the cleaners.
Eyes will once again be on KL Rahul and Chris Gayle.

Chris Gayle (21 off 17 balls) couldn't play an impactful innings being dismissed by Russell. However, Narine made a decision to bowl round the stumps, and used his carrom-ball to dismiss Rahul.
The next over saw Narine hit back to back boundaries off left-arm pacer Barinder Sran (1/48 in 3 overs) - a hook and one over mid-on. Skipper Ravichandran Ashwin and Andrew Tye did their best to push the score beyond 200, and maintain a healthy net run-rate.
It was one such day for the Kings XI Punjab. The bowlers were just caught under the fire. This season, he has got more chance to bat by virtue of being an opener and Rahul too has pounced on the opportunity not letting anything go. "When you bowl on a small ground, anything can happen", he said. We'll try to make the most of the opportunity. Previous games were sticky but this one is expected to stay the same. Both of them will be confident of repeating their heroics but even KKR must have noticed by now that Punjab doesn't have a solid middle-order and if they remove openers early the job will be nearly done for them. He hit the ball well.
