Call it a clash or encounter, King XI Punjab (KXIP) loses the 8th match of IPL played against Royal Challengers Bangalore. IPL seems to be stimulating as unexpected things are taking place as well. A defeat of lions in the last match is unbelievable but true. Well, RCB played well.
Where had KXIP lacked or how RCB got a victory? Time to think of these five ultimate reasons-
Punjab began well. With the opening duo scoring 32 runs in the first three over, things went all downhill as Yadav picked up three wickets in the next over.
RCB's beginning was lame but all thanks to De Kick and De Villiers who pushed the singles around. Moreover, a combo of left-handed and right-handed troubled Punjab team to regulate their lines and lengths.
There seemed to be an off day for KXIP's fast bowlers as they failed to take up important wickets at the top. RCB boosted good runs.

De Villiers always portrays his importance in a cool manner. With calm mind in a difficult situation, the South African enhanced the team score till his knock on 57.

Call him Yadav or Virbhadra Express, Umesh Yadav has ticked all right boxes this IPL. With hat-trick wickets, Umesh Yadav titled as "Man of the Match".
