IPL 2020 , RCB vs KKR: Red army on fire as Mohammed Siraj turns star of the match, knocks Knight Riders by 8 wickets



  • Mohammed Siraj became the first bowler to bowl two back-to-back maiden overs in a single game in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as his three-wicket haul helped Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) hammer Kolkata Knight Riders by 8 wickets at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.
  • It was a superb bowling effort from the RCB bowlers who dominated the proceedings against KKR from the word go.
  • After being asked to bowl first by KKR skipper Eoin Morgan, Siraj got his team off to a flying start with a double-wicket maiden over.
  • Chris Morris bowled the opening over conceding just three runs off it before Siraj bagged the wickets of opener Rahul Tripathi (1) and Nitish Rana (0) in the second over.
  • KKR never managed to rescue themselves after the early double blow from Siraj as they kept losing wickets at regular intervals.
  • Navdeep Saini got rid of Shubman Gill (1) in the third over to reduce KKR to 3/3 before Siraj returned to pile more misery on Morgan’s men.
  • Siraj dismissed Tom Banton on 10 off 8 balls as KKR were left reeling on 14/4 inside four overs. KKR’s top-order suffered a dramatic collapse as Siraj ran riot with the new ball.

  • He finished with excellent figures of 3/8 in his 4 overs as KKR were restricted on 84/8 after a stellar effort from RCB bowlers.
  • Along with Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal also continued his fine form with the ball as he picked two wickets while conceding only 15 off his 4 overs.
  • It was the eighth-wicket partnership between Kuldeep Yadav (12) and Lockie Ferguson (19) which helped KKR post something to fight for on the board after a dreadful show from the top and middle-order. Morgan top-scored with his 30 off 34 balls.
