Kolkata Knight Riders beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by 82 runs in IPL 2017. RCB were bundled out for a record low total of 49 after KKR scored 131 batting first.
This is the lowest ever score by a team in IPL ever and earlier the lowest score was of 58 runs by Rajasthan royals which they scored in year 2009 in Capetown.
Nathan Coulter-Nile and Chris Woakes have picked up three wickets each while Umesh Yadav and Colin De Grandhomme took two wickets apiece for the hosts. Earlier, Yuzvendra Chahal finished with figures of 3/16 as KKR were all out for 131.
Virat Kohli looked totally disappointed and he said “Our worst batting performance, it really hurts. After the kind of half that we had, we thought we could capitalise and chase it down. Reckless batting. I can’t say anything at the moment. It was that bad. This is just not acceptable. The sightscreen is very small here, one guy got up as the bowler was loading up, that distracted me. Still it wasn’t a big deal. That was just one down. Nine guys could have done the job. There’s nothing to review anything about the second half, it was that bad. We need to forget it and move forward. I’m sure we won’t bat like that again in the tournament. After the start they got, the spinners did well. Restricting them to 130 was a good effort. We’re going back home for a couple of games. We’ve got back-to-back games, need to try and win those to get some momentum.”
