Glen Maxwell’s side Kings XI Punjab [KXIP] defended a modest total as Royal Challengers Bangalore [RCB] crashed to their fifth straight loss in the Indian Premier League on Friday.
Spinner Axar Patel (38*) was the top scorer for Punjab, and also contributed with the ball for the visitors, picking up three wickets. Batsman Mandeep Singh (46) was Bangalore's highest scorer after skipper Virat Kohli and explosives guns like, Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers were all dismissed cheaply by seamer Sandeep Singh. Speaking after the game Kohli said he hadn't experienced so many batting collapses ever in his career. The RCB skipper stated that he had no idea how to describe such a batting performance.
