IPL 2017: Twitter Reacts As Travis Head & Mandeep Singh Steer RCB To Respectable Total Against KKR

Royal Challengers Bangalore rode on gutsy half-centuries from Travis Head and Mandeep Singh to recover from a disastrous start and post 158 for six against Kolkata Knight Riders at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

After being put to bat first, the hosts once again began disastrously with Umesh Yadav dismissing Chris Gayle for a golden duck. Just a few moments later, the Jamaican was joined by Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers in the hut too, as both departed after scoring five and 10 respectively, leaving the Bangalore side reeling at 34 for three in the fifth over.

Mandeep Singh and Travis Head then shared a much-needed partnership of 66 runs to stabilise their team’s poor condition before rain intervened. Mandeep, who had scored 46 in the last game, scored his half-century just three balls after the game resumed. The right-handed batsman took 41 deliveries to get to his first fifty of the ongoing season. However, he could not continue for long, as he was dismissed for 52.

Kedar Jadhav could not do much with the bat either and was dismissed for only eight but Travis Head held firm from one end. The Australian batsman also scored his first fifty of this season and remained unbeaten on 75 off 47 balls to guide the Royal Challengers to a respectable total.

Here is how Twitter reacted to the innings:

An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
You will never walk alone.
