IPL: Bangalore desperate for a face-saving victory

15 May 2017

Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli won the toss and chose to bat first in RCB's last game of the VIVO IPL 2017 season at the Feroz Shah Kotla against the Delhi Daredevils. Corey Andesrson was then stumped by Vishnu Vinod off Head, but Pat Cummins blasted the bowler for a six only to get out the next ball. Zaheer Khan's men also defeated Rising Pune Supergiant by seven runs in their last league game at the Kotla on Friday. In his next two overs, he conceded just the one boundary. Given that RCB had lost two of their set batsmen at a time when a switch in gears was required, they stood up and provided the boundaries with the team being able to push their total past the 160-run mark, adding as many as 49 off the last four overs; that, despite losing their power-hitters.

Virat showed no signs of slowing down and Amit Mishra was his next victim as he pummeled the leg spinner for a six and a four in the 12th over.

Israel's prison service have not commented on the matter, however officials previously rejected the idea of negotiations. Earlier this week Israel released footage it said shows Barghouti breaking his fast.

Kohli, meanwhile completed his fifty in 39 deliveries in the final ball of the 15th over with a single to deep cover off a delivery from Zaheer.

The last match of IPL 2017's group stages was also 20-year-old Avesh Khan's first T20 match. Shahbaz Nadeem, who was consistently bowling as a chinaman to Gayle, bowled one that spun the other way and he mistimed it to give Zaheer a rather easy catch at midwicket.

Credit must be given to some of the best visual effects yet to be seen in a Marvel film, or perhaps blockbuster cinema as a whole. Yondu and Rocket both share some pretty emotional moments that develop their characters and teach us more about them.

Delhi's chase got off to a disastrous start when Sanju Samson was dismissed by Avesh Khan's second ball. Karun Nair struggled early on but then got a few quick runs, courtesy the five boundaries he collected; he made 26 from 22 balls before miscuing a pull to the man at midwicket. In the end, DD only ran RCB close because of later-order hitting from Shami (21 from 9 balls, 3 sixes). The left-arm spinner Pawan Negi, introduced to bowl in the eighteenth over, finished with impressive figures of 3/10 from two overs, while Harshal Patel copped some punishment but picked up three crucial wickets.

In response, the Daredevils starts well, despite Samson falling for a duck, but in the end fell short by 10 runs. He also contributed with a sharp runout of Travis Head (2 off 2) and the big wicket of Kohli in the eventful 17th over. TOSS TIME! Royal Challengers Bangalore Captain Virat Kohli has won the toss and chose to bat first against Delhi Daredevils at Ferozeshah Kotla ground in the capital.
