Bangalore crush Punjab by 10 wickets in must-win IPL game

The t-shirt turned out to be so lucky that RCB's bowling line-up, which has been the poorest in comparison to other teams, ran over Kings XI Punjab batting line-up and dismissed the home side on a mere score of 88 in Indore.

The match is scheduled to be played at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore at 8:00 PM.

Earlier on Monday, as Kohli's men geared up for a do-or-die battle against KXIP, Anushka wore a t-shirt sporting Kohli's name and posted a special message on Twitter, "Come on boys".

On May 1, Kohli dedicated RCB's victory over defending champions Mumbai Indians to wife Anushka, who celebrated her 30th birthday. Its bowlers clicked so well today that apart from Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal (1/6), Colin de Grandhomme (1/8), Moeen Ali (1/13) and Mohammed Siraj (1/17) picked up a wicket each to bundle up Punjab for 88-all out.

From there on, Kings XI never really recovered and were eventually bundled out for the second lowest total of this years IPL, courtesy some brilliant work at the field by RCB fielders. Umesh Yadav was the wrecker-in-chief as he removed the opening duo of Chris Gayle and KL Rahul and the rest of the team just crumbled under pressure. The KXIP middle order had an opportunity to make their presence felt in this game but Karun Nair and Mayank Agrawal failed yet again, while Marcus Stoinis couldn't justify his promotion.

Left-hander Patel then smashed three boundaries off seamer Mohit Sharma in the fifth over as RCB looked for a quick finish.

Virat Kohli scored unbeaten 48 runs with the help of two sixes and four fours while Parthiv Patel scored 40 runs that included seven boundaries.

While Rahul pulled one straight to de Grandhomme a deep square leg, Gayle departed in similar fashion caught by Siraj off another short delivery three balls later.

KXIP who won 5 of their first 6 games has lost 5 of last 6 games.
