Kolkata Knight Riders Crush Bangalore Royal Challengers

By: Dharmendrasinh Rathod

Kolkata Knight Riders Crush Bangalore Royal Challengers : A grand openning of the Indian Premier League at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium marked the commencement of a new era in the game of Cricket.

The first match saw the Kolkata Knight Riders posting a massive total of 222/3 in the stipulated 20 overs. Brendon Mcmullum played a stunning knock of 158 n.o. setting a new record of a highest individual score in the T20 format. His innings included 13 sixes and 10 fours. Mcmullum picked up the man of the match award along with the DLF maximum sixes award.

The breathtaking knock left no option for the Royal Challengers but to go hammer and tongs from the first delivery of their innings.

The Royal Challangers response failed to match the reputation of the greats like Kallis and Dravid. Their innings was proved to be of no match to that of the Riders and they were eventually bundled out for a meagre total of 82/10 in 15.1 overs.

For the Knight Riders Ishant Sharma took 1 wicket, while Agarkar picked up 3 and Ganguly finished with 2 wickets as Bangalore fell short by 140 runs.

It was a pleasing site to see the players of different nationalities intermingling with each other as an unit in both teams. IPL, surely provides a platform for the international players to play together as a team and to develop respect for each other.

The next fixtures on April 19, will feature
Kings XI Punjab V/S. Chennai Super Kings and
Delhi Daredevils V/S. Rajasthan Royals.

Happy Viewing.
