 Match Report

Kallis came out like a man possessed as he ripped apart Malinga in his first over. Uthappa was all over the place as he prodded and poked around before the break. Then something happened to him as he came out firing on all cylinders to belt the ball to all parts of the ground. Infact Uthappa hit the longest six so far in this year’s IPL against Bravo which went 113 metres. It was a cakewalk in the end for the RCB. A throughly professional performance.

It was one of the most convincing wins in this year’s IPL. Rewind to the MI innings as Dillon du Preez made a dream debut as he picked up three quick wickets to rock MI. Then Bravo and Nayar batted brilliantly to help the MI to 149. It was never enough on a belter of a wicket.
