The Indian Premier League (IPL) is off to a flyer as it witnessed three exhilarating contests over the last two days. The Punjab Kings squared off against Royal Challengers Bangalore today at the DY Patil Stadium, Mumbai. Moreover, both Punjab and Bangalore are yet to win an IPL trophy.

Batting first, Bangalore posted a mammoth total of 205/2 on board with the help of captain Du Plessis’s knock of 88 (57). Both Kohli and Du Plessis ameliorated the middle overs and assured a convincing total on a green track. When Bangalore took the field, they were undoubtedly the favorites to get hold of the match. However, the Punjab batters had a different proposition. They were pouncing the Bangalore bowlers from the start and soon equaled the required rate.

When Odean Smith walked into bat, Punjab was struggling at 162-5 after 16 overs. Earlier, Du Plessis was dropped on the score of 7 when Odean had a bowl in his hand. This time around, Odean had a thirst to take his side home. Bangalore, on the contrary, required only one wicket to seal the match. With a packed off-side field, Harshal Patel invited Odean to play a line outside off-stump and his trap was nearly successful.
