  • Chris Woakes is going through a rough patch for Royal Challengers Bangalore Indian Premier League 2018

Colin de Grandhomme helped Royal Challengers Bangalore's bowlers suffocate the life out of the innings of Kings XI Punjab in a one-sided Indian Premier League match on Monday (Tuesday NZ time).

Shreyas Iyer's men came into the game playing for pride while RCB was battling to keep their campaign alive and needed a victory. Aaron Finch, right handed bat, comes to the crease.

Virat Kohli is a cricketer of rare instinct and intensity. The game that was expected to be a thrilling one turned out to be a damp squib. They have just six points.

"We were not clinical with the ball, but these guys played well". RCB bowlers were very well complemented by some good outfield catching and three run-outs.

Punjab, however, are not out of it as yet but shockingly poor effort from their batsmen on a belter of a wicket in Indore will be cause for concern, especially since it has come at a crucial juncture of the tournament. Umesh Yadav was spectacular in the initial stages of the tournament but has receded into the sunlight as the wickets have dried up and the economies have gone up.

R Ashwin and his KXIP bowling unit barely posed a challenge as the RCB openers made merry in the small ground.

WICKETS! This is just awful.

WICKET! Yuzvendra Chahal gets his name of wicket list, dismisses Marcus Stoinis. That wicket had put the KXIP in serious trouble as they were 3 wickets down within the powerplay itself. Mohamed Siraj gets his first wicket.

WICKETS! RCB have made a strong comeback with two wickets in one over. Among them, Umesh Yadav stood out. In reply, KL Rahul continued his fine form with a third consecutive fifty - smashing 66 from 29 balls - but it wasn't enough to lift the team up anywhere near the steep target as they slipped to another defeat.

Dropped! How costly will this prove.

Off the last ball of the same over, Umesh struck again and this time his victim was none other than Chris Gayle (18).

It was the 2nd head to head battle between this two teams in the ongoing season.

Their batting revolves around Virat and de Villiers, who played a brilliant knock in the must win game against Daredevils on Saturday.

Punjab win. RCB have been far too patchy this season and look unlikely to defeat a Punjab with a goal. Thanks to Narine's 75, Karthik's 50 and Russell's 31 KKR posted 245 runs on board, which is also the highest in this years IPL. This might just turn out to be a blessing in disguise as Stoinis will strengthen their batting considerably, and will give the team four overs. The ever dependable and consistent Rahul too will have a point to prove against his "home" side. Out of those 11 games, KXIP won 6 and lost 5.

Virat- The RCB skipper has already shown his intent. The team India pacer has picked up 14 wickets in 11 games.

The match will start at 8:00 PM IST onwards.

The match will take place at Holkar Stadium, Indore.
