It was Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Dinesh Karthik who won the toss and opted to field. Openers Virat Kohli and Parthiv Patel walked out in the middle to begin proceedings. Parthiv who has looked in great touch in the tournament s far fell early after playing a few good shots. Akshdeep Nath got a promotion as he was asked to bat at No 3.

He scored 13 of 15 deliveries before Andre Russell dismissed him with a brilliant delivery. Virat Kohli was playing the anchor’s role to perfection and ever since Moeen Ali came into the crease the whole complexion of the match changed. The southpaw looked in ominous touch and started to smash the KKR bowlers from the outset.

The southpaw was supported brilliantly by Virat Kohli who wasn’t really playing the big shots. Moeen Ali was the attacker between the two as he smashed 5 fours and 6 sixes during his breezy knock of 66 of just a mere 28 deliveries. It was a special effort from Moeen Ali to treat the way he did to Kuldeep Yadav. The world-class chinaman bowler was smashed for 27 runs in an over to put KKR on the backfoot.

After conceding 27 runs, Kuldeep Yadav finally bagged his wicket. After his dismissal, Virat Kohli took the onus on himself to do the job for Bangalore. He started taking on the attack to the KKR bowlers and raced towards a well deserved century. He looked in sublime touch and smashed Harry Gurney all around the park to near a well-deserved century.

It was a rampage on show in the last few overs as he completed his century of the final over. Marcus Stoinis also struck a few lusty blows and was about to miss his century had Stoinis hogged the strike. However, he refused a double in the 3rd delivery and eventually made a century. He was dismissed in the final delivery of Harry Gurney.
