Pawan Negi has been a bright spot in Royal Challengers Bangalore’s disastrous campaign in Indian Premier League 2017
1*, 13, 56, 73*, 99, 35* and 58.4 Number of fifties Virat Kohli scored in the IPL2017.
Difference between 160 and 180? . Both aggressive batsman, they pulled free of Delhi's tight bowling and brought up the fifty-run partnership for the second wicket in 41 balls, after targeting spinner Amit Mishra's over for 19 runs. With all the senior bowlers finishing off their spells, Zaheer Khan turned to Corey Anderson to bowl the 20th over of the innings. When put in context of the game, however, they were vital.
Kohli flicked Zaheer over the ropes but was out from the following ball and Negi hit three consecutive boundaries in the last over of the innings, runs which proved to be crucial.
For RCB, the debutant Avesh Khan clocked good speeds and generated steep bounce, hit the bat high on the maker's name, and provided the first-over strike. It was his first match of the IPL and the pacer was handed the ball to start proceedings. Zaheer dropped a hard return catch of Kohli on the first ball of that over.
DD's chase was rocked at the start when they lost Sanju Samson without a run on the board. He finished his first over on T20 debut conceding just two runs and a wicket.
Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant got starts, though neither converted that to a big score; Shreyas made 32 from 29 balls before he slapped a short delivery to the cover fielder, while Pant made a stroke-filled 45 (34 balls, 3 fours, 2 sixes) before he played all over a slower delivery from Harshal Patel in the seventeenth over.
In the 12th over, seamer Harshal Patel dealt RCB a double blow when he sent back Iyer and Marlon Samuels off successive deleveries, to give RCB the upper hand and leave Daredevils in trouble at 87 for four. Delhi, in response, bungled the straightforward chase with frequent wickets, especially in the middle overs.
Shami dispatched the last two balls for boundaries to bring the equation down to 35 off 18 balls. For the Royal Challengers Bangalore, the failure of the destructive force with Kohli, Gayle and De Villiers unable to live up to the expectations, Bangalore will be relying on some firepower by Travis Head and promising youngster Mandeep Singh.
