KKR beat RCB Highlights – IPL 2021 Points Table: It was a must-win game for KKR, who were seventh in the IPL table before the resumption of the tournament, and moved up to fifth following this victory.

Despite the dramatically one-sided result, Virat Kohli’s RCB remain well-placed in third, with five wins from eight matches.

KKR beat RCB Highlights: Varun Chakravarthy’s weaves magic as KKR thrash Virat Kohli’s RCB by 9 wickets

KKR beat RCB Highlights – IPL 2021: KKR’s bowling took a big dent when Australia superstar Pat Cummins chose not to return to the IPL, but the break seemed to have actually benefitted them. Prasidh Krishna made the initial breakthrough in the second over, removing Kohli lbw for just five, with the batsman also wasting a review on the decision.

But they still managed to reach a respectable 41-2 at the end of the powerplay.

From then, it was like a game of dominoes and a sight that RCB fans will be used to as their star-studded batting line-up was unable to click as a unit. Just the thought of Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers batting together is enough to send shivers down the spine of any bowler – but not Russell.

The game-changing moment came when the West Indies all-rounder produced the most ferocious and perfectly-executed leg stump yorker to dismiss de Villiers for a golden duck.

Chakravarthy was equally remarkable, eventually named Player of the Match for his 3-13 that included 15 dot balls. Maxwell’s frustration at getting only 17 from 10 balls eventually led to being bowled attempting a slog. Kyle Jamieson was then run out at the non-striker’s end after the ball was hit back to the bowler – perhaps summing up RCB’s day.

KKR beat RCB Highlights – IPL 2021: When Gill and IPL debutant Venkatesh Iyer came to the crease to begin KKR’s chase, they immediately looked as if they were batting on an entirely different pitch.

Taking an attacking approach from ball one – unsurprisingly given they are captained by Morgan – they romped to 82 from just nine overs.

When Gill was dismissed for 48, only 11 runs were needed to win and Iyer smashed a boundary to seal the success and finish with an impressive 41 not out.

Sri Lanka’s Wanindu Hasaranga did not have the same beginner’s luck. On his RCB debut, he was out for a golden duck and bowled two overs for 20 runs.

KKR beat RCB Highlights – IPL 2021: Varun Chakravarthy – Kudos to the whole bowling unit, it was a very disciplined bowling performance. I’m happy to do whatever the coach and the captain want me to do, be it bowling the first over or come back later. We did work a lot even during the last phase, credit goes to the team management. The plan was to attack the stumps, the ball was doing a bit initially, now it has flattened, so we just stuck to our plans
