Gayle- Rahul fail
It was yet another a disappointing show from the openers of KXIP, both of them went cheaply in the dugout. Umesh Yadav, the speedster of RCB drew the first blood by taking Rahul's wicket with a short delivery that was hit straight in the hands of Colin de Grandhomme.
To make things worse for the home team, Yadav jolted Chris Gayle to break the backbone of Kings XI Punjab. Punjab's main strength lies in the openers as the other batsmen don't bat as deep as the team unit would like them to.
