Royal Challengers and Kolkata Knight Riders are currently squaring off against each other in their second respective match of the Indian Premier League 2022. In the match being played at the D.Y Patil Stadium, Royal Challengers Bangalore dominated right from the beginning and they did not give Kolkata Knight Riders any chance at all to comeback in the match. RCB’s brilliant bowling restricted KKR to a mere first innings total of just 128 runs.
However, KKR also had a couple of great performances here and there like the one with Umesh Yadav. In the most unexpected manner, Umesh Yadav hit a massive six against Akash Deep who picked up 3 wickets for RCB today, in the 18th over and it might as well be nominated as the best six of the night. Even the Commentators and spectators were surprised by the way Umesh Yadav played this shot and they praised him a lot. Unfortunately he lost his wicket in the same over to Akash Deep only and although the RCB Bowler got his revenge, Umesh Yadav playing such a classy shot being a fast bowler needs to be given its due credit.
KKR’ innings came to an end after Umesh Yadav’s fall and they scored 128. Umesh also gave KKR a brilliant start with the ball by picking up the big wickets of Virat Kohli and Anuj Rawat.
The match is in a very important stage right now and anything can happen. However, if KKR somehow manage to win this match against RCB, it will be a great achievement and second consecutive disappointing loss by RCB
