KXIP vs RCB Highlights and Match Recap, IPL 2019, Full cricket score: Royal Challengers snap losing run with 8-wicket win

Highlights

00:02 (IST)

The whole of Bengaluru is going to party harder tonight as RCB finally get off the mark in IPL 2019. It has taken them seven games but today they were the better side in all departments. Despite Gayle's unbeaten 99, some great disciplined bowling in middle-overs never allowed KXIP to get way with the bat. Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers then put up another classic batting performance as they clinched the match by eight wickets!

That's all for tonight! Two more matches coming up tomorrow. KKR take on CSK while SRH face DC. Our live blog for the first match starts at 2.30 PM. See you tomorrow. Good night!

23:56 (IST)

Virat Kohli, winning captain: Most pleasing thing is coming for an interview at this time, and not immediately after the match gets over. I won't say we have been unlucky in every game, but a couple of games we should've closed out before this. We thought 190 will be par but to restrict them to 170 was a great effort. To pick up 4 wickets in 8 overs in the middle for 60 runs was a great effort.

23:55 (IST)

AB de Villiers is the Player of the Match for his unbeaten 59! 

ABD: We've waited a long time this season, so we're very happy! I've got too much respect for the game to be upset about it. I just haven't crossed the line on a few occasions. I know you're always just one knock away from getting into the confidence zone. I've decided not to play international cricket to keep myself sharp for other forms. Playing 11 months of cricket, I cannot stay sharp. It was a fantastic move to get Dale. One thing's for sure, you'll get 200 percent from him. Another great human being in our team. We have to win a lot of games now. Hopefully more successes around the corner for us. 

23:46 (IST)

Marcus Stoinis: I thought I was pretty comfortable here (At Mohali). (On ABD) Probably the best player of our generation. I think the main difference for us tonight how we came back with the ball, and then the big partnerships with the bat. We'll make sure we're having fun, and we'll start thinking about it if it gets close towards the end.

23:44 (IST)

Ravichandran Ashwin, KXIP captain: There's only six runs to go, and the ball was sliding in nicely, and with AB and Stoinis, I thought a leggie had a better chance. I thought we let ourselves down on the field. All these small things make a difference in the end. To be completely honest, the dew helped batting. Gets better to bat in the second half. I had to back my best bowlers, and it didn't work out today. We have a few more games at home, and hope they turn up in big numbers then as well.

Quite an eventful over. 18 off it. 20 needed in 12 now. Stoinis whipped the full ball to mid-wicket fence before cutting the length ball past point for another four. His pull shot went up in air but Murugan put it down in deep before ABD slapped the wide ball from Tye over cover for a six. He also completed his fifty with a single.

23:30 (IST)

KXIP vs RCB Expert's Voice 

That was a key over from Tye. The last throw of the dice for KXIP. They were in with a chance when Stoinis hit the ball sky-high. But Murugan dropped a sitter. Two boundaries, 1 six,turned the state of the match around. The 18 runs from the 17th over has put RCB in drivers seat

KXIP vs RCB Expert's Voice 


RCB entering the homestretch requiring less than 50 runs in the last 5 overs. They have 8 wickets in hand and should back themselves to get across. KXIP does not have a great bowling in the death. But pressure is a funny factor. The loss of Kohli for a well made 67 could be a blow but RCB have the resources to see them across the line

KXIP vs RCB Expert's Voice 


That's a superb partnership between the old firm of Kohli and ABD. The duo really enjoy batting with each other and Kohli has said it in so many words repeatedly. They run well and hardly raise a sweat in picking off runs through singles, twos and boundaries. Their understanding of each other's ability is perfect and seem so in control. Kohli, meantime has also got to his 50 from 37 deliveries. RCB are 107/1 after 12 overs

Fifty up for Kohli! He reached there in 37 balls. RCB need 76 in nine overs. He also got a four off the over as he rocked back to cut the slower ball from Ashwin past point as a lazy Shami was too slow to bend down.

Skipper Ashwin comes back into attack! Six off the over with six singles. Kohli is on 40 and RCB need 94 in remaining 11 overs. Time for strategic time-out.

22:40 (IST)

KXIP vs RCB Expert's Voice 


Ashwin probably hoping that his mystery bowler Murugan will fox Kohli or ABD. Little does he know that Murugan was in the RCB set up for a year and they had batted against him regularly in the nets. Kohli is looking watchfully aggressive and ABD too is not looking to take risks. RCB are ahead of the run rate at present so the batsmen are under no pressure to step on it

RCB Score latest updates

Murugan Ashwin started well even forcing Kohli to inside edge one though it didn't hit the stumps but he lost his rhythm a bit as he presented him with short deliveries. Kohli cut the first one past point to get a four on off and then clipped the next one to mid-wicket fence. Nine off the over. Powerplay up!

22:27 (IST)

FOUR! Another half-tracker. Poor bowling from Murugan as Kohli clips it through mid-wicket

After 5 overs,Royal Challengers Bangalore 54/1 ( Virat Kohli (C) 26 , AB de Villiers 9)

KXIP vs RCB Expert's Voice 

ABD has come out to join Kohli and he never takes too long to get into the groove! Plays a beautiful back-foot punch off length ball to beat the mid-off fielder and then opens the face of the bat late against good length ball to pierce the third man fence off Shami. 10 off the over.

22:24 (IST)

KXIP vs RCB Expert's Voice 


RCB's openers Kohli and Parthiv looked to have taken off in grand style by hammering the opening three overs before Ashwin came onto the bowling scene and had Parthiv caught at long off. At 54 for 1 in 5 overs RCB have got off to a healthy start, though Parthiv finding one of the only two fielders in the outfield was a bit silly. Not as much dew on the outfield as expected. Should benefit the spinners at least for a while

IPL 2019, KXIP vs RCB, Today's Match Preview: Kings XI Punjab face Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 28th match of the Indian Premier League 2019.

Still searching for their first win this season, Virat Kohli's men find challenges stacked against them, but playing after a small break the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will be rejuvenated to make a mark against R Ashwin-led Kings XI Punjab (KXIP).

RCB will find some solace in the fact that KXIP have been slightly off the boil in few off their games. Couple of nights ago the Punjab franchise lost from a winning position against the Mumbai Indians, where Kieron Pollard bludgeoned 83 off 31 balls dishing out some severe beating for Kings XI bowlers. RCB have been woeful in all three department and even any mathematical possibility off making the top four is quickly diminishing.

The Kings XI will look to extend their good run at Mohali, having won all their three games so far and will be aiming for another win against the bottom-placed Bangalore side in their bid to remain among the top four. Kings XI openers KL Rahul and Chris Gayle have been in tremendous form and once again the onus will be on the attacking duo to help the Kings XI middle order that has few weaknesses.
