This was KXIp's second win of the season and interestingly, both the wins this season have come against RCB.

KXIP are now at the bottom of the points table.

Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals continue to remain at the top of the points table having registered six wins so far in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

James Neesham, the Kiwi all-rounder and one of the foreign players of the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) franchise in IPL 2020, has hilariously trolled his coach Anil Kumble and his teammates after they completed yet another breath-taking game, but this time, ended up on the winning side. They won by 97 runs in their first clash against RCB.

. Chris Morris and Isuru Udana palyed some brilliant shots in the last two overs to post 171 in 20 overs. RCB fans expect the team to get more such wonderful records in the future! Rahul and Gayle together stitched a 93-run second-wicket partnership.

Gayle, who was playing his first competitive match since January, overcame a sluggish start against Royal Challengers Bangalore to smash five sixes and a boundary in his 53-run knock, helping KXIP snap a five-match losing streak.

KXIP had almost pulled off the win when they reduced the target to seven runs needing off the final two overs.
