The KXIP and RCB tie was one important match of the IPL. While one team had lost their first match the other one came from a victory. KXIP had lost in a nail-biting super over against Delhi Capitals whereas RCB had won against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
The same match saw skipper KL Rahul hit an unbeaten 132 runs off just 69 balls becoming the highest individual score by an Indian in the history of IPL. While KL does it with the bat, Shami, on the other hand, does magic with the ball. In the two matches that the KXIP has played so far, he has been an important asset to the side. His performance with the ball has restricted the teams from getting big totals and also from chasing.
After yesterday’s innings both the orange and purple caps have landed in the Kings XI squad. KL Rahul became the orange cap holder with 153 runs overtaking Faf du Plessis. Mohammad Shami became the purple cap holder with 4 wickets in 2 matches with an economy of 4.36 and conceding 32 runs.
