KXIP vs RCB – IPL 2020 Match 6 Review

Match 6 of Indian Premier League 2020 had an importance among all the matches played, because we saw an spectacular century from the Kings XI Punjab captain KL Rahul (132 Runs of just 69 Balls). KL Rahul reached the century with brilliant fours and sixes, he made 14 fours and 7 sixes to reach 132 Runs in 69 balls and helped the team to reach 206/3 in 20 overs.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) won the toss and elected to field first, which proved wrong after seeing the fabulous batting display from KL Rahul.

Kings XI Punjab started brilliantly with the first wicket partnership of 57 runs in 7 overs. The second wicket also had a very good partnership of 57 runs between N Pooran and KL Rahul.

In the last 5 overs Kings XI Punjab made 80 Runs and in just the last 2 overs they got 49 Runs. Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli dropped KL Rahu twice (he was 83(55) and 89(59)) in the depth over after which KL Rahul himself got 49 runs more.

Kings XI Punjab Batting:

KL Rahul (132 Runs of 69 Balls with 14 Fours 7 Sixes)

N Pooran (17 Runs of 18 Balls with 1 Four)

NA Saini (4 Overs 37 Runs)
YS Chahal (4 Overs 26 Runs 1 Wicket)
