2009: A batting line up that has Jacques Kallis, Robin Uthappa, Ross Taylor, Kevin Peitersen, Rahul Dravid and Virat Kohli gets bowled out for 87 runs. Shocking right? But this is what happened on April 20, 2009 when CSK set huge target of 180 against RCB, and in reply the most reputed batting order collapsed within 100 runs. CSK won this match by 92 runs.
2012: Kings XI Punjab vs. RCB. It was one of those matches where Gayle storm struck and struck hard. Kings XI team managed to score 163 after useful contributions from the batting order. But when RCB came into bat, on the one side Gayle stood firm and on the other side wickets kepts falling. In 5.1 overs the score was 25-3. That is when AB de Villiers came into bat and on the other side Gayle got back to playing his normal game. When these two get going, no target seems big and so was in this case and RCB managed to win easily. Gayle struck 87 off just 56 deliveries.
It will be interesting to see if today’s match between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab can make it to the history books.
