So one more week of pulsating Cricketing action is done and dusted, this week we saw some amazing innings, some awesome spells of bowling and a whole lot of other dramas, Let’s take a quick roundup of this week top action in the Vivo IPL 2016.
1) ABD And Kohli show
Before writing anything about this innings i must warn you that this is one of those innings that you have got to see to believe, so if by any chance you missed the game head over to youtube hotstar or wherever you use to watch cricket and catch the highlight of their marvelous innings. After a poor start by Bangalore, where gayle got out for just 6 runs in the 4th over, AB De Villiers joined kohli in the middle and from there the ABD & Kohli show started, ABD smashed 12 maximum and 10 4’s in his innings of 129 runs of just 52 balls, He started right from the word go and there was no stopping him after that as he got to his ton in just 43 balls, last 50 of which came in just 18 balls. Kohli was playing the second fiddle in the partnership until the 18th over , when he was on 65 from there he went into a rampage mode thrashing the young and helpless kaushik for 30 runs in the 19th over, he bought up his hundred in the final over as he smacked praveen Kumar for a huge six.
2) Dhoni Loses his cool
How often do you see the man who is known as captain cool for his calm nature in the field lose his cool, well not very often, but one such instance happened last night, in the first innings dhoni while batting with pathan lost his cool more than once. With the aggressive field set by Gambhir, Dhoni was finding it difficult to score runs. With a score of just 8 off 22 balls , and a terrible loss at the end this is one match that Dhoni would like to forget sooner, rather than later
3) Bangalore Vs Punjab Match
One of the most exciting match in this week Ipl , This match had it all. Batting first Rcb made 175 runs in their stipulated 20 overs thanks largely to AB de Villiers 64 and L.Rahul 42. The chase of KXIP started on a positive run with both amla and vijay scoring runs, Vijay was in a fine form as he smacked 12 4’s on his route to scoring 89 runsof just 57 balls. His wicket in the 17th over seemed to have sealed the deal of RCB , but a late onslaught by Stoinis ensured that no one left their seat early, However a excellent penultimate over by watson raised the chance of RCB winning, he conceded just 7 . With 17 required of last over Kohli gave the ball to jordan,11 was scored of the first 3 balls, with just 6 required of 3 balls it looked all over for RCB but a brillant comeback by jordan ensured that they win the match by a run.
This match is among the contenders for being the best match of the tournament.
