In the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 played between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kings XI Punjab, Bangalore won the toss and elected to bowl. The threat of rain perhaps made him to think about electing to bowl. The track is flat and one should see batsmen from both teams doing well. Virender Sehwag and Mandeep Singh opened the batting for Punjab. Catch Live Scorecard and ball by ball commentary of the Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kings XI Punjab IPL 2014 match here.
Bangalore’s opening bowler, Mitchell Starc, the left-arm swing merchant from Australia found some swing early on to trouble Sehwag outside the off-stump. Sehwag as usual tended to flash at anything outside his off-stump and played and missed a few times against the left-arm swing bowler. It has to be said though, Starc at times found it hard to get his line right from over the wicket. He even tried to bowl from around the wicket. Sehwag, who looked relaxed at the crease finally opened up his shoulders by flicking Albie Morkel for a boundary during the second over of the game. Mandeep too essayed a boundary off Starc’s bowling. Bangalore need a wicket or two quickly. Catch Live Blog of the IPL 2014 match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kings XI Punjab.
