Dhoni's IPL onslaught in vain as Kings win

Umesh Yadav, a right-arm-fast bowler of the hosts, has been an important contributor who took three wickets in Punjab to stop this score. Kohli's pull shot was taken at deep mid-wicket by D'Arcy Short, who timed his jump to perfection. However, he didn't have the greatest starts to his IPL career as he only managed to score 11 off 17 balls. But Gopal had a bigger impact as his two wickets, that of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, derailed RCB's chase.

If they seek to address that, it may mean Brendon McCullum (who got a first ball duck) gives way to one of two fellow Kiwis- all-rounder Colin de Grandhomme or seamer Tim Southee.

In a high scoring match, Gowtham had a decent outing as he conceded 36 runs in four overs and took a crucial wicket of the risky McCullum.

He rejected reports that there was any pressure from his alliance partner PDP for withdrawal of the two ministers. The state government has also chose to terminate from service the cops accused in the case.

The 11th match of Indian Premier Leauge (IPL) has been started and the match is going to play between Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore and Ajinkya Rahane's Rajasthan Royals. There's always this view that one or more of their much-vaunted Top Four will play a big innings and to be fair to them, that's what happened on Friday with Quinton de Kock's 45 and AB de Villiers' 57 getting them over the line.

7- In the thriller against RCB, RR's Sanju Samson hit 10 sixes which is also the second highest by any Indian in IPL in a single match.

Rajasthan are now third on the points table while RCB dropped down to 6th with just 2 points from 3 games.

Confirming the report, Shindand District Governor Shukrullah Shaker said the attack took place in Larzanak area of the district. Rahmani said the attackers planted mines to stop reinforcements from coming to help the government forces fend off the attack.

RCB, on the otherhand, slumped to their second defeat in three games despite skipper Virat Kohli (57 off 30 balls)'s first half-century of this edition. Royals had done it once previously as well, in a rain-shortened game against Delhi Daredevils.

The home side, which will turn out in green on the occasion (an annual ritual), could be tempted to field an extra spinner although Kohli has spoken about his preference for giving only five bowlers total responsibility. His 40-ball innings was laced with two boundaries and four sixes.

Together with Ravindra Jadeja (19), Dhoni smashed seamers Mohit Sharma (1-47) and Andrew Tye (2-47) for 38 runs before Sharma kept his nerve and conceded 12 in the last over to earn Punjab its second win. Bangalore lost their first match against KKR while the Rajasthan side lost theirs against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Khloé's mom made it very clear to Tristan that it would be very unwise for him to make any moves to keep the baby in Cleveland". TMZ also released video from October apparently showing Thompson being intimate with two women in Washington, D.C.

Mandeep Singh contributed 22 down the order while Washington Sundar (9 not out) hit the winning runs - four - as RCB reached 159 for 6 in 19.3 overs at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.
