A valiant unbeaten 89 by AB de Villiers went in vain, as Kings XI Punjab thrashed Royal Challengers Bangalore by 8 wickets in an IPL 10 match in Indore last night.
RCB posted 148/4 in 20 overs, thanks to de Villiers 89* and Mandeep Singh 28. Varun Aaron took 2/28.
In reply, KXIP lost just two wickets before reaching the target in just 14.3 overs. Manan Vohra made 34. Hashim Amla and Glenn Maxwell remained unbeaten on 58 and 43 respectively.
Axar Patel was declared the ‘Man of the Match’ for his superb spell of 1/12 in 4 overs. That changed the course of the game.
