Chasing a competitive target of 182, RCB's two most dependable batsmen i.e. Kohli (70 off 40 deliveries) and De Villiers (72* off 37) rose to the occasion and handed their team a comfortable win in a must-win game. If Pant was the top-scorer with 34-ball 61, then his younger colleague and India U-19 World Cup team member, Abhishek Sharma, hammered 46 off just 19 balls on his IPL debut to take his team to a respectable total. They have faced issues in all three departments of the game. At 18 for 2, Kohli and de Villiers began resurrecting the innings.
In the next over, the 17-year-old greeted Tim Southee with a four and two sixes. De Villiers took some time to play his shots but when he started, he was literally unstoppable. By the time the Power Play was done, Bangalore were 58 for 2 and on course for the chase.
The southpaw got going by depositing Mohammed Siraj for successive sixes in the eighth over, one came off a pull over midwicket and the other was a flatter hit over long-off. Kohli's fifty - his 34th - that came off just 26 balls was his joint-fastest in the IPL.
Delhi's bowling coach James Hopes and captain Shreyas Iyer insisted that there is a lot to play for. The legspinner, who opened the bowling and sent Patel on his way, conceded 10 runs off the over to finish with an impressive 1 for 25 on his IPL debut.
That was when Sharma stepped in and took the opposition by surprise. The bowling department will be headed by pacemen Umesh Yadav and Tim Southee, while leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal and offie Washington Sundar could prove handy in the middle overs. While Shaw was defeated by a flipper, Roy played all around a googly. Lamichhane, thus, became the first player from Nepal to play in the IPL. The crowd was cheering for both and at one stage it felt like the match was going on in Bangalore. Another six from Sharma and a four by Vijay Shankar followed in the over after that, delivered by Mohammed Siraj.
In a desperate attempt to break the threatening stand, Kohli summoned Chahal to bowl the 12th over. Pant raced to his fourth fifty of the season off 27 balls and was poised for another big innings. The third-wicket stand of 93 was finally broken by Moeen Ali, who had Pant caught at long-on off his last ball of the night. Only Chahal and Moeen Ali went for less than 8 an over. Iyer's sluggish innings (32 off 35) ended 13 balls later when he was holed out by Siraj. Patel was looking for a sweep, misses the ball.
Tye once again got the breakthrough when Russell top-edged a short-pitched delivery and Karthik also holed out at long off after hitting five fours and three sixes.
