Tripathi got his side off to a decent start yet again

It is hardly believable when the batting line-up of the Royal Challengers Bangalore fades away for less than 100 runs once. However, when the same thing happens twice, it is just insanity. For the second time in this year’s IPL, the team from Bangalore were decimated for under 100. 

Asking the Pune Supergiant to bat first, the Bangalore bowlers restricted them to a decent score of 157. In response, the batting order of the Challengers was royally tormented by the bowlers of the Pune franchise. In the end, they could only manage a score of 98 after playing out their 20 overs.

Here are 5 memorable moments from the match that don't fade away, quite like the Axe Signature range of body perfumes. 


#1 Rahul Tripathi shows promise

The first time is always the hardest for cricketers. Making an impression as quickly as possible is the need of the hour since there is no guarantee that the said player will ever get a second chance. And that is precisely what Rahul Tripathi is doing right now.

This is his first season in the Indian Premier League and he has fared amazingly well so far. Tripathi continued his fine form, scoring 37 runs from only 28 balls, an innings that gave his team the start they required to put up a fighting score of 157.
