  • RCB beat KKR by 7 wickets to register their seventh victory in IPL 2020.

  • RCB have now acquired the second spot in team's standings.

Mohammed Siraj’s magnificent effort helped Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) to crush Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by eight wickets at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.


The RCB speedster stunned KKR in the first innings with his outstanding bowling. He picked up three wickets in his first two overs, reducing KKR to 14 for 4.

Siraj’s effort with the ball helped him register his name in the record books. He became the first-ever bowler in the IPL history to deliver two maiden overs.


Apart from Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal bagged two scalps while Navdeep Saini and Washington Sundar earned one wicket each.

For KKR, skipper Eoin Morgan with 30 off 34 balls was their highest scorer. Lockie Ferguson with 19 and Kuldeep Yadav with made valuable contributions down the order to reach 84/8 in 20 overs.

RCB secures the second place in the points table

Chasing 85 was never going to trouble RCB and precisely what happened. The Challengers only lost two wickets of Aaron Finch (16) and Devdutt Padikkal (25) before they reached the set target in the 14th over.


It was the seventh win of RCB in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020, and they have climbed to the second spot in the points table.
