RCB's Mills, De Villiers to return for KKR clash

IPL 10 Match 23 In-form Kolkata Knight Riders look to continue good form against beleaguered Gujarat Lions

In a stunning collapse, Royal Challengers Bangalore were all out for 49, the lowest score in the history of IPL as Kolkata Knight Riders spanked them by 82 runs, here tonight.

The aggregate of RCB heavyweights - Virat Kohli (0), AB de Villiers (8) and Chris Gayle (7) - was 15 and that sort of explained the misery of the RCB. He bowled fast with intent, and made maximum use of the pacer-friendly pitch.

The same duo combined again to snare Chris Gayle (seven) with Coulter-Nile taking the catch from a Woakes delivery and Stuart Binny followed three balls later to hand the English quick a his second wicket and leave RCB reeling at 6-40. The Bangalore team's previous low was 70 against Rajasthan Royals in 2014.

Lions and Kings XI have both won a game against each other in the last season 2016.

The top-order cameo: In what turned out be comfortably the highest score of the match, the 34 from West Indies star spinner Sunil Narine opening the batting got the hosts off to a terrific start.

Kohli was facing only the third ball of the innings when he was caught at second slip and the Royal Challengers Bangalore captain was clearly unhappy as he stormed off the ground and whacked his bat against his leg in frustration. After winning the toss and electing to field, RCB bowled out KKR for 131 on the back of a brilliant spell by Yuzvendra Chahal.

Coulter-Nile has figures of 3/17 in 3.1 overs. Reckless batting, I can't say anything at the moment.

Kohli though hoped that his side realises what went wrong. "We're a much better team", he added. It also reminded you of how KKR captain Sourav Ganguly led with the ball to choke RCB, also in 2008, after Kolkata could manage only 129.

After an outstanding performance by the RCB bowlers, they had a rather easy total to chase and given the quality of batsmen they possess this should have been a cake walk for them.

Kohli described it as their "worst batting peformance". Two quiet overs from the leggies brought about Yusuf Pathan's doom as he jumped out to attack Chahal only to be slipped a wide one and get stumped, leaving KKR 87/4 after 10 overs.
