IPL: Kings XI Punjab beat Bangalore Royal Challengers
Kings XI Punjab, skippered by Yuvraj Singh recorded their first win of the second edition of Indian Premier League Twenty20 tournament being held in South Africa.
The target of 169 set by Bangalore Royal Challengers was not that easy under lights at the Kingsmead, but an explosive innings by Ravi Bopara (85; 59 balls, 4×4, 5×6) and a confident contribution from Yuvraj Singh ensured a comfortable win for the Kings.
Yusuf Abdulla kept the Royals’ score down to manageable proportions and got Kevin Pietersen in his kitty. Only Jacques Kallis (62 off 46 balls) weathered the storm.
