The crowd of Kolkata today witnessed a whammy in Cricket field. In the latest brawl between Kolkata knight Riders and Royal Challenger Bangalore at Eden Garden, the Bengal crowd caught a glimpse of thunderbolt being thunderstruck with host side’s dominance over adversary. They have beheld the record lowest IPL total ever scored by any franchise (RCB), 49 all out.
Winning the toss, Virat Kohli went for field aspiring to restrict the host with a decent total and to chase it down with ease. Eventually RCB was looking a bit stiff as KKR got off a great start with Gambhir and Narine. The show of this duo came to its end with the dismissal of Gambhir. Starting from Gambhir the entire batting line up started to fall with their short cameo which led the team to the total of 131 at the cusp of their innings.
Virat kohli led side with the target of 131 seemed a bit confident to steal the show but as the game began the whole RCB got bundled out through the hands of Nathan Coulter Nile, Chris Woakes and DE Grandhomme with the record lowest total of 49. RCB a team comprising with players like Chrish Gayle, Virat Kohli, AB De Velliers only upstaged the total of 49. With kohli’s duck and Gayle’s lost tracked performance, RCB exhibited a major area for themselves to ponder on. In Kohli’s word this was the disastrous batting performance they have ever come across in the last 10 years of IPL.
Last year on the same day the RCB shaped up the most devastating Gayle storm along with the highest total of 175 in this particular format of cricket but today they have gone contrary to their own benchmark, Hence today their own deeds made themselves the subject matter of shame.
