Defeat dulls Yuvraj’s brilliance





Yuvraj brilliance lighted up what at first appeared as a dull encounter.

In the match between Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Yuvraj unsatisfied with taking a hat trick proceeded to blast a 34-ball 50.

Yuvraj opened with K.Goel when KXIP set out to chase the target of 145 set by RCB. He proceeded to impose himself directly by scoring exactly 50 (3x4, 4x6). Victory should fittingly crown his champagne performance; alas, it was not to be.

Following his dismissal, RCB’s bowlers scripted a turn around and proceeded to win the match. The penultimate over bowled by Anil Kumble changed the course of the match. Praveen Kumar then removed Irfan Pathan and Piyush Chawla of successive deliveries in the final over and won the match for RCB.

Slog,

I agree with you, however it is a pity that he is inconsistent.If only he tightens up his technique he could have made a name for himself.
