Royal Challengers Bangalore demolished Kings XI Punjab at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore on Monday night. After opting to bowl, RCB bowled and fielded with plenty of intent and aggression, and dismissed the home side KXIP for 88. The opening pair of Virat Kohli and Parthiv Patel then knocked off the required runs in 8.1 overs to lead RCB to a huge 10-wicket win, reports IPL T20.

Put in to bat, KXIP were cautious, to begin with, scoring only one run from the first eleven balls of the match. But a slight error in length from Tim Southee was enough for KL Rahul to break the shackles; the right-hander sent the ball on its way into the stands at square-leg. Chris Gayle dropped on 0, collected three boundaries in the fourth over bowled by Southee.
