Sunil Narine scores quickest 50 in IPL

Hashim Amla was caught behind off Choudhary in the first over and the South African walked off despite the fact that neither the bowler nor the wicketkeeper had appealed. Lynn scored 50 after returning from a shoulder injury which ruled him out for a month, while Narine hit a 17-ball 54 as the visitors overhauled RCB's total of 158/4 easily. He struck in his second over, the 11th of the chase, having Watson feather a short of a length ball behind to leave RCB at 71 for 5.

KKR Pacer Umesh Yadav sent back West Indian explosive batsman Chris Gayle on the first ball of RCB's innings. Things never really looked good for them, as Virat Kohli was also out in the third over. With Narine (2-29) castling AB de Villiers (10), Bangalore ended the powerplay at 40 for three. KKR, for their part, piled up the pressure using spin and medium pace and restricted the home side to just 63/3 at the end of 10 overs.

After the high of last global season, the IPL has been kind of a setback for skipper Kohli with his team letting him down pretty badly. Barring Mandeep Singh (52) and Travis Head (75), the other Bangalore batsmen were all at sea. Run-scoring was hard, but the Indo-Australian pair completed their 50-run partnership in the 13 over.

Law of Averages isn't applicable to RCB's batting, for it has become one itself, and so the bowling had to stand up, like it has, and try to defend a modest total.

The defeat continued RCB's freefall of IPL 2017.

Narine played a memorable knock as he scored the fastest half-century to demolish the opponent attack. Head finished off the innings with two sixes and four, which must have given RCB hope of emerging victorious. It was in the final over of the innings when he finally unleashed his fury on KKR.

The duo made it look easy. Vohra's 28-ball knock was laced with one boundary and one six.

Royal Challengers are out of contention for a top-four finish.

Skipper Virat Kohli was dejected after RCB's 6 wicket loss in the green game at the Chinnaswamy against the Knight Riders on Sunday.

However, there are a few teams who have been a major disappointment this time. Nobody can forget the last match that they had with KKR at Eden Gardens.

After the openers departed, Colin de Grandhomme scored 31 while Gautam Gambhir contributed 14 runs.
