The start to Season 10 of IPL has been tough for the RCB camp. With stars like Rahul being ruled out owing to injuries, the batting balance of the side lacks the killer element, but for AB De Villers. Here's a quick look at the top five moments from today's match between the RCB and the KXIP at the Holkar stadium in Indore.
AB De Villers' surreal innings - There are great cricket players and then there is AB. The pitch that seemed to trick most RCBians found the South African prodigy at his best. The 360-degree man, smashed the ball across all corners and was awarded the ‘Maximum Sixes’ award at the end of play.
Wriddhiman Saha gloving a magic - Just when the partnership between Mandeep Singh and AB seemed to be rolling fine, The KXIP keeper ran back to the boundary and dived to his right to catch a high one - dismissing Singh. He was later awarded the ‘Perfect catch of the match’ for that.
Stadium cheering for AB - A supposed KXIP home ground was heard cheering for RCB star AB De Villers when he was putting the balls in the orbit. They were heard saying "we want six"!
Hashim Amla and Maxwell's drop catches - As they often say in cricket - 'catches win matches', was proven right yet again when the dangerous Hashim Amla and the destructive Glen Maxwell was dropped on 20 and 14 respectively.
Maxwell finishing off in a hurry - The new skipper of the KXIP seemed to be in a hurry to finish off the match as he smashed a 43 of 22 balls to achieve the target of 149 in 14.3 overs.
Though it has not been a great start to the tournament for the RCB, we can soon see things changing with the return of Kohli and Gayle who can add to the Play Bold moments and make things work for the side.
