KKR in trouble with early wickets against RCB in IPL 2014

Apr 24, 2014

 

Varun Aaron was called upon to bowl the fourth over as KKR were struggling after a couple of quick wickets in their third match of the Indian premier League (IPL) against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Thursday. Aaron worked up decent pace as he beat the bat of Kallis once, and induced a false pull the next ball. Kallis was lucky that it did not go to a fielder. Lynn showcased his talent by striking Aaron for a four off the penultimate delivery of the over.

 

Starc came in to bowl the third over and started very well against Kallis, bowling five dot balls to him in a row, until Kallis cut him for a boundary off the last ball to spoil his figures.

 

Earlier, Kolkata Knight Riders lost the wicket of their skipper Gautam Gambhir for duck in their third match of the Indian premier League (IPL) against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Thursday. The slide continued as Manish Pandey too was dismissed for five. Kolkata are 17 for two in two overs. Jacques Kallis and Chris Lynn are batting.

 

Mitchell Starc opened the bowling for RCB and struck on the third ball of the over. Gambhir was done in by a yorker and missed it completely. It was an easy decision for the umpire. This is Gambhir’s third duck in a row, two of which were golden duck. Starc maintained a tight line getting the ball to rise from short of good length.

 

Gambhir’s dismissal has often given more opportunities at the start to the in-form No 3 Manish Pandey. But Pandey couldn’t do much. He hit a four and then couldn’t keep a leading edge down. Virat Kohli took a sharp catch at short point.
