Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Gujarat Lions Match-44

In 44th match of IPL-9 2016 Royal Challengers Banglore defeated Gujrat Lions by 144 runs. Batting first Banglore started slowly as they have also lost Chris Gayle in 4th over when the total was 19 runs. Then comes AB Devilliers who was in mood to destroy bowlers and their spirits. In first ten overs the score was 76 runs and then Virat Kohli and AB started to dominate and they scored 172 runs in last ten overs. Its 17 runs per over. AB scored 129 runs off 52 balls with 12 sixes and 10 fours on the other hand Virat scored 109 runs off 55 balls. They both put up a partnership of 229 runs the biggest in IPL history for second wicket. Batting second Gujarat was never in the hunt. They started losing wickets from start and they kept on losing that till the end. None of the batsmen could do anything for his team. Only Aaron Finch scored 37 runs but he took 38 balls to do so. It was Banglore’s day all long. This has brought some hopes to Banglore’s camp about qualifying. It’s still very far away. AB was named man of the match for his blistering knock of 129 runs of 52 balls. Admire this talent.
