IPl 2018 : Royal Challengers Bangalore win by five wickets

IPl 2018 : Royal Challengers Bangalore win by five wickets

Earlier, Kolkata posted IPL 2018's highest team total as their batsmen came to the party.

The 29-year-old took the bowlers to the cleaners before falling for a 40-ball 70 of the bowling off Amit Mishra in the 14th over.

Kohli also reached other milestones in his knock. For the first time in IPL's history, Nepali player Sandeep Lamichhane is taking part.

Boult 4/40 was slightly expensive while Mishra, as usual, was at his economical best with 1/33 and accounted for the wicket of unsafe Kohli. The much-needed win tonight was RCB's fourth in 11 games, keeping them in contention for a playoff spot.

"The table is wide open. There were other games too which we should have won". "At this stage of the tournament, maybe we will prefer bowling first because the batsmen can take more responsibility and chase down every total". "We are out but it is important that we win the remaining three games", said Hopes. Ask the opposition team to get the runs and tell them we are coming after it.

"Feeling really good. We are really excited about the next few games".

Tiemoue Bakayoko shares thoughts on rumours surrounding Antonio Conte's future
He then flew to London after the event to finally be given the FWA Footballer of the Year gong, adding to PFA Player of the Year . Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko would be "disappointed" to see head coach Antonio Conte leave the club this summer.

"We have assembled a strong squad and we have played well at times and yet, in crucial moments, usually in the closing overs with both bat and ball, we have let ourselves down badly, won only three matches out of 10 and now find ourselves on the brink of elimination", he wrote on his column for Times of India. Nepal's Sandeep Lamichhane, Junior Dala and Abhishek Sharma were handed their debut caps, brought in for Shadab Nadeem, Glenn Maxwell and Liam Plunkett. What a start for him.

A little later Chahal sent back Jason Roy in a similar fashion as the Englishman failed to read the wrong one off the Indian spinner's hands, leaving Delhi reeling at two for 16 in the third over. Pant played a major role in boosting the run rate.

Chris Gayle went for 21 as Russell got two wickets off successive deliveries in the sixth over.

AB de Villiers shared an emotional message for RCB fans, saying the team would be hoping to make a good comeback in the remaining four games. Abhishek Sharma, the 17-year-old teenager, took his time to settle and then just blazed away against the likes of Tim Southee who was simply superb in his earlier matches. Patel was looking for a sweep, misses the ball. Luck was also on his side as Sharma was dropped by Siraj at third man and to add insult to the injury, the ball deflected from his hands to the ropes. He attacked the debutant Junior Dala in his very first over and smashed him for two boundaries and one six in the fourth over of the innings, that produced 17 runs. His unbeaten 19-ball 46 included some of the cleanest hits. Two overs later, they had crossed the 50-run mark with two sixes from Pant in the eighth over against RCB's medium-pacer Mohammed Siraj.
