IPL 2019 – Twitter Reactions: Andre Russell, Nitish Rana efforts in vain as Virat Kohli’s RCB wins a thriller against KKR

Posted On / /

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) eked out a thrilling win over Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) for only their second success of the IPL 2019 season after Andre Russell and Nitish Rana nearly pulled off the impossible at the Eden Gardens on Friday.

Needing 113 runs off the last six overs, Russell (65 off 25) and Rana (85 not out off 46) almost got their team over the line but Moeen Ali managed to defend 24 in the final over.

The tense climax came after Virat Kohli slammed 100 off 58 balls for his fifth century in the IPL and first this season. RCB hammered 91 runs off the last five overs to reach 213 for four – their highest total this IPL season.

Ali’s 66 off 28 while batting alongside Kohli also proved beneficial for the Red Army as they finally managed to defend.
