Dream11 IPL 2020 RCB vs KXIP: KXIP defeat RCB by 8 wickets in a nail-bitting finish

KXIP dominate RCB to win the match by 8 wickets to register their 2nd win of Dream11 IPL 2020

KXIP defeat RCB for the second time in the 31st match of IPL 2020. This win proved a big relief for KXIP after having lost 5 games in a row.

RCB won the toss and elected to bat first against KXIP in Sharjah. This was Virat Kohli’s 200th match as RCB player.

Skipper Virat Kohli (48) and a valuable cameo by Chris Morris (25) took RCB to 171 at the end of 20 overs.

RCB took some strange decisions in their innings as AB De Villiers came to bat at no.6 instead of 4. The experiment of sending Sundar and Dube ahead of AB De Villiers failed as they failed to make an impact.

In reply, KXIP never looked uncomfortable as they had a blistering start with Mayank (45) and skipper KL Rahul (61) smashing 56 at the end of 6 overs.

Universe boss Chris Gayle (53) made his first appearance of the season and made his presence known. However, KXIP were almost about to tie the game with 1 required the last ball and Nicholas Pooran hitting a six of Chahal.

This was the second win of KXIP over RCB and their only win. RCB stand 3rd with 10 points.
