The Royal Challengers Bangalore suffered an awful batting collapse against the Kolkata Knight Riders and were bundled out for 92 runs at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. Bangalore won the coin toss and Virat Kohli chose to bat first.
The decision, however, proved to be fruitless, as KKR bowlers made the ball talk throughout the match. In addition to skipper Kohli, Devdutt Padikkal, Srikar Bharat, and Glenn Maxwell all got off to a good start after he was dismissed in the second over.

Lowest Scores for RCB in IPL
Unfortunately for the Royal Challengers Bangalore team, none of the three players played an innings of substance. Even AB de Villiers got out for a golden duck. Lower order for the Bangalore-based side couldn’t make much of an impact, getting bowled out for 92. Padikkal (22) was the highest run-scorer for RCB, whereas Srikar Bharat (16) was the wicket keeper batsman’s best performance.
The KKR bowlers took a total of 3 wickets apiece with Andre Russell and Varun Chakravarthy taking one wicket each. Also, Lockie Ferguson was successful in getting a couple of wickets as well. As a result, this is the first time in the history of IPL that KKR has not conceded a six when bowling first. KKR will also be playing their 200th match in the IPL and they would be hoping to win their 200th match.
RCB: 49 all out vs KKR – 2018
It was expected that Royal Challengers Bangalore would stroll to victory in IPL Match 27, especially after Kolkata Knight Riders were dismissed for just 131 in 19.3.
With star players like Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers, and Virat Kohli on the team, the target was sure to be easy.However, the Kolkata Knight Riders led by Gautam Gambhir had other ideas. They came out shooting from the start.
In the first three overs, Nathan Coulter-Nile took three wickets, and Chris Woakes pounded out the middle order. RCB were reduced to 49 for no score in 9.4 overs with none of the batsmen reaching double figures, while Colin de Grandhomme provided the final touch, as RCB were all out for just 49 in just 9.4 overs.
RCB were out for 59 minutes during the second innings, leaving them completely red-faced. As of now, this score is the lowest in the IPL’s history.
