Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kings XI Punjab IPL Live Streaming on Star Sports, HotStar, Live Cricket Score

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kings XI Punjab live streaming will be telecasted on Star Sports First channel. Umesh, their best bowler in their first match against KKR, did just that in the fourth over of the innings, changed its course nearly decisively. Aaron Finch, playing his first game after his wedding, lasted one ball as Umesh trapped him in front first up. Finch (0) had to go. The first ball, a tempting full-pitched delivery, was edged by Agarwal to the keeper de Kock diving to his right.

Ben Stokes, the most-expensive signing at the IPL Player Auction 2018, hasn't been in the best of batting form recently, but RR will hope he can start hitting a few balls out of the park soon. And then out! Yadav clean bowled Yuvraj off the last ball of the over, thus breaking the backbone of the opposition. RCB bowlers bowled with a game plan and apart from Yadav (3/23), all other bowlers chipped in and restricted Punjab to 155.

In response, RCB started their inning with Quinton de Kock ad Brendon Mccullum. Kings XI raced to 32 in the first three overs and RCB needed to stop them before they could run away with the game.

Ajinkya Rahane can take a cue from Ravichandran Ashwin on how well to rotate his bowlers, and hope for them to make life hard for RCB's top-order. He came in to bowl the 12th over.

- Virat Kohli has scored 78 runs off 66 balls from Dhawal Kulkarni and has been dismissed four times. Sarfaraz Khan came to bat and in the next ball, Ashwin took his wicket too as Khan gave the catch straight to Karun Nair. The duo had put on 54 before De Kock was castled by an Ashwin straighter one on 45.

The decision to bat Rahul Tripathi at number five continues to baffle the experts as D'Arcy Short was run out once again for a single digit score.

But de Villiers stayed calm.

Kohli's wicket brought AB De Villiers at the crease and the two South Africans started the rebuilding job for the home side. Yuvraj just has to take a deep breath and enjoy his cricket and runs will automatically flow. "The general message shared by the team is to stay busy and take the game to the next level always", de Villiers told RCB according to a press release. In response, RCB chased down the total comfortably and scored 159 runs in 19.3 overs for the loss of 6 wickets. But then there was still a certain AB de Villiers (57, 40b, 2x4, 4x6) at the crease, making a mockery of both the relative difficulty of the task and the slow nature of the pitch. He fell in the 19th over, holing out to deep point off Andrew Tye, but Washington Sundar's two boundaries off the last over ensured RCB managed to draw curtains on the horrid run endured last season.
