IPL 2018, RCB vs KXIP: 3 Things you might have missed
This edition of IPL is up and running with two consecutive nail-biting thrillers where chasing side had the last laugh keeping their fans at the edge of the seats until last over.
De Villiers finally redeemed himself after losing 11 games he played, with a crucial inning of 57 runs from 40 balls to seal the victory for Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Sportskeeda takes a look at the three unnoticed things from the match which had a considerable impact on the end result.
#1. Umesh Yadav’s lucky streak
Umesh Yadav had a good match with the ball bagging three wickets, all coming in the power play in his three-over spells he bowled upfront which earned him a Man of the Match performance ahead of De Villiers.
Yadav has always enjoyed bowling against Kings XI Punjab picking more than six three-wicket hauls taking his tally to 23 wickets. The Punjab franchise think tank will be aware of this record if they haven’t already.
