Apr 24, 2014


Yogesh Takawale and Parthiv Patel have given a steady start to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in chase of 151 against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the 11th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014. After a brisk start, skipper Gautam Gambhir brought in Sunil Narine. But Takawale continued to explode against the quicker bowlers. He hit three boundaries in the sixth over. Bangalore are 49 for no loss in six overs.


Morkel came in to bowl his second over on the trot for KKR. He bowled consistently over 140 kmph, but Takawale was still able to hit him for three boundaries off the over. He hit his first one over midwicket, the second between the keeper and slip and the third through square leg.


Parthiv started off with a boundary in the first over. It was short and wide from Umesh Yadav and Parthiv cut it past point for four.Morne Morkel opened the bowling from the other end. He was bowling a good pace reaching almost 150 kph on one occasion.

On the typical shiny Sharjah pitch, this could be a below par score. Chris Lynn’s enterprising 41 and Jacques Kallis’ 43 were the highlights of the innings for the batting side. It was a disciplined show from the RCB pacers with Varun Aaron picking three wickets.
