David Miller was batting well for Kings XI Punjab against Royal Challengers Bangalore in their match in IPL 2014. Albie Morkel came in to bowl the 12th over, and struck to get rid of a scratchy-looking George Bailey for one run off seven deliveries. It was the first economical over for RCB in a long time. Only one run came off it.

The 11th over was bowled by Chahal and he beat Bailey off the first ball comprehensively. He continued to keep things tight, going for just one of the first three balls, till Miller smashed the fourth ball for a huge 93-metre six. The last couple of balls passed without incident.

Varun Aaron came in to bowl the 10th over, and was immediately struck for a couple of boundaries by David Miller to bring up the 100 for KXIP. He nearly hit another off the penultimate delivery of the over, but it was well fielded by Yuvraj Singh in the deep. Aaron kept bowling it wide, however, and went for the third boundary off the over off the final ball.

Earlier, Punjab made a good start. However, from Bangalore’s point of view, at the right time, Mandeep Singh and Virender Sehwag were dismissed. Harshal Patel snared the wicket of Mandeep and Sehwag gout to Yuzvendra Chahal the leg-spinner. Sehwag perhaps cold have stayed at the crease for a  little longer, but here is one batsman who likes to go after the spinners. But Punjab needn’t have to worry much, as Glenn Maxwell the star performer for them is at present batting at the crease. Maxwell showed his class by smashing Yuvraj Singh for a six down the ground. He followed it up with another six. He smashed 19 runs off that Yuvraj’s over. He though, was dismissed by Chahal for 25 off 11 balls. Catch Live Scorecard and ball by ball commentary of the Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kings XI Punjab IPL 2014 match here

Punjab made a good start to their innings. It was Virender Sehwag, swashbuckling opener who started the boundary count with a flick shot. He was at his best when he smashed Albie Morkel for a boundary. It was a trademark square cut from Sehwag. He also thwacked Harshal Patel over Mid off for a boundary. His young partner, Mandeep Singh wasn’t to be left behind, as he too played a fine shot or two off Mitchell Starc, the left-arm swing bowler from Australia. Catch Live Blog of the IPL 2014 match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kings XI Punjab
