Parthiv Patel started to score runs freely for Royal Challengers Bangalore against Delhi Daredevils in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 game played at Bangalore. Siddharth Kaul came in to bowl his second over, and was taken for three off the first two balls by de Villiers and Parthiv. The batsmen weren’t getting a lot of boundaries but were taking lots of quick singles and doubles. Murali Vijay misfielded one at the boundary and AB de Villiers got four. Off the next ball, de Villiers hit another six. He finished the over with another boundary as Rahul Shukla misfielded one at the boundary. 18 runs came off the over.


Imran Tahir came in to bowl the 11th over. Parthiv got a quick single off the first ball, before de Villiers picked up a couple of runs. Off the fourth ball, Parthiv stepped out and struck the ball for a boundary down the ground. He found the fence again off the final delivery to make it 14 runs for the over.


JP Duminy came in to bowl his final over, and was worked away for a couple. The pair of AB de Villiers and Parthiv Patel tried to work the ball around. Parthiv looked a touch uncomfortable, and even de Villiers got a couple of inside edges, but they survived the over to trudge to 60 for two after 10 overs.


Earlier, Chris Gayle started well But at the right time, Rahul Shukla, the fast bowler dismissed him. It came at a time when Gayle was looking dangerous for Bangalore. His partner, Parthiv Patel has been playing well at the other end. Once Gayle got out Delhi were able to stem the run flow to some extent. Duminy, who came back into the attack bowled a fine sixth over. He was followed up by Shukla mixing up his pace well to keep the batsmen guessing. The odd delivery he bowled quick enough and then there was that slower one to surprise the batsman.  Imran Tahir, the leg-spinner  was introduced into the attack, during the eighth over of the game.
