AB de Villiers looked solid, but wickets kept tumbling in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 game played between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kings XI Punjab. Shivam Sharma bowled the 12th over, and got Albie Morkel out straight away, caught off a miscue at point. AB de Villiers kept the attack going, hitting another six off the over.

Glenn Maxwell bowled the 11th over, and was greeted by de Villiers with a six down the ground. He was hit for another couple off the next ball, but was unable to get the big hit in. A Morkel hit another six in the over, but was nearly caught by Miller in the deep. He hit the third six of the over off the penultimate delivery, before getting a single off the last ball.

Shivam Sharma got the wicket of Yuvraj Singh, caught by Sehwag at slip. A Morkel edged one as well, but it went between Sehwag and Saha, it could have been two wickets in three balls. Shivam was in the middle of a really good spell.

Earlier, In the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 game played between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kings XI Punjab, Bangalore lost their way after losing quick wickets. In fact they lost four wickets before the ninth over of the game. The likes of Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle got out cheaply. Even Parthiv Patel who looked in fine touch was dismissed during the sixth over of the game. Sandeep Sharma the swing bowler was the wreaker in chief as he took three wickets in quick succession. He swung the ball late and bowled at good pace for Bangalore. Sachin Rana, who was picked for the match didn’t survive long as he got out to Akshar Patel for 18 runs.  To make it worse for them Yuvraj Singh continues to struggle for runs. AB de Villiers is one batsman who has looked comfortable at the crease till now but he perhaps has too much to do as they are chasing a monstrous score on the board. The required run rate has climbed up to over 13 runs required per over.

Earlier, Bangalore’s openers, Chris Gayle and Parthiv Patel started rather cautiously before they got out to Sandeep. Sachin Rana though survived the hat-trick ball from Sandeep.
