The Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) survived a scare final against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and recorded their second 2020 IPL victory to stay alive in the tournament on Thursday Continuing a goal of 172, KXIP edged RCB on ball 1 of the second inning With only two runs needed on the last six balls, with nine wickets in hand, few expected RCB to succeed
Four scoops and a point on the penultimate delivery almost saw RCB clinch a win Unlike Glenn Maxwell, Nicholas Pooran walked that one inch distance and hit all six of the match winners to stop KXIP to be eliminated
Captain KL Rahul and Chris Gayle also played their part in the chase Here is a look at the top three strengths of the RCB vs KXIP nail-biting tie –
« There was no conversation between Yuzi (Chahal) and me to be honest, » RCB captain Virat Kohli said in the post-match press Of course, with only two races needed with nine wickets, no captain would go to his bowler with a tip Chahal did it on his own and brought RCB back into the game by giving only one point on the first five balls.
Pooran, who only played one ball, ended RCB’s hopes by converting the final ball into a full toss and sending the ball through the boundary line For a while, head coach Anil Kumble also appeared to be tense as this was the second time KXIP had watched a shocking loss. But they prevailed on this occasion
Where is universe boss Chris Gayle? For weeks fans were eager to see Chris Gayle, who warmed up the bench on several occasions and when his time finally came, a stomach infection prevented his return He finally made his first game of the season against his old franchise and scored 53 wins out of 45 He was exhausted by the penultimate delivery, pressuring Pooran to do the job
