Samson towers over RCB star cast

AB de Villiers

Right-hander Rahane hit six fours and a six to provide the early fireworks for the visitors as they raced to 49 off 5.4 overs till the dismissal of the Indian global. After his departure, de Kock and Kohli looked good before the former got out for 26 (19). Samson obliterated the Bengaluru bowlers to stroke 10 maximums and two boundaries to anchor Royals to the behemoth total. Umesh Yadav was hit for 59 runs in his four overs.

He capped his final assault on Umesh Yadav and the analysis of the final RCB over ready 2.6.4.1nb.6.6.1, all faced by Samson, who wished "Happy Vishu", the new year celebrated across the western coast of the country, in no uncertain terms.

Woakes bore the brunt of his clean-hitting, getting whacked for two fours and a six in the penultimate over. Rajasthan might make a change and bring the unsafe Jofra Archer. Kohli, it must be mentioned produced a quality effort, his power-packed half-century providing his team an outside chance halfway home, but the moment Virat (57) and De Villiers departed, it was all over bar shouting. Gopal also dismissed AB de Villiers 20 (18 balls) c Jaydev Unadkat.

Kohli and De Kock meted out some heavy punishment to the likes of spinner K. Gowtham and medium pacer Dhawal Kulkarni.

Legspinner Yuzvendra Chahal (2-22) was the best bowler for Bangalore and, although Chris Woakes also picked up two wickets, he was expensive and conceded 47 runs. Kohli's pull shot was taken at deep mid-wicket by D'Arcy Short, who timed his jump to perfection. But, when he along with De Villiers fell within a span of a couple of overs, the contest was all but over. The notoriously short boundaries of the Chinnaswamy Stadium were peppered by Samson, who hammered 10 sixes and a four in his 45-run blitz and shared two important partnerships, first with Ben Stokes (27) and Jos Buttler (23) and outscored both of them.

Tye (7) and Mujeeb Ur Rahman (0) got out cheaply and Punjab only managed 155 runs in 19.2 overs. He started slow ensuring RCB doesn't lose more wickets but came to his full might towards the end of the inning when he started hitting big sixes and reaching 57 runs off just 40 balls, taking RCB home comfortably.

Royal Challengers Bangalore have won the toss and have elected to bowl first.

Washington Sundar with 35 and Mandeep Singh with 47 had a late flurry as they took RCB to 198 for 6 in 20 overs.
