It was carnage at the Eden Gardens on Friday and it wasn’t Andre Russell for a change. It was the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) batsmen Moeen Ali and Virat Kohli smacking the ball to all the parts of the ground. The duo literally ripped apart the KKR’s bowling attack to propel the team to a huge total of 213 runs for the loss of 4 wickets after 20 overs. Though Kohli scored a century and stole all the limelight, it was Moeen who started it all against Kuldeep Yadav.
The chinaman had a tough day at the office on the day as he ended up conceding the joint most expensive spell by a spinner in IPL history. One felt that all was going KKR’s way until the 14th over started and the momentum completely changed in the 16th over. Moeen Ali launched an assault on Kuldeep who had conceded 32 runs in his three overs by then. The Englishman smashed Kuldeep for 27 runs in his final over as the young spinner finished with the figures of 59/1 in four overs.
