KKR stuns RCB to keep them winless

Highlights - KKR stuns RCB to keep them winless

VIVO IPL 2019 : RCB vs KKR T20 Highlights - Kolkata Knight Riders beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by 5 wickets with 5 balls remaining.

Andre Russell's sensational Knock 48* stuns Royal Challengers Bangalore to keep them without victory - Andre Russell produced fourth consecutive devastating innings to scored unbeaten 13-ball 48* not out as Kolkata Knight Riders chased a steep total with five balls to remaining.

Kolkata Knight Riders Chasing 206, they needed 66 runs off last 24 balls at one point, and then 53 off 18 with Andre Russell having just faced two balls.

Royal Challengers Bangalore used four bowlers - Mohammed Siraj was suspended halfway through the 18th for a second beamer - all of whom were pumped to various corners of the ground by Andre Russell who needed only eight scoring shots to score 46 of the 53 required.

It particularly soured the night for Royal Challengers captain Virat Kohli's 84 off 49 balls and a 108-run partnership stand with AB de Villiers seemed to have set up a win they desperately needed, having come into the game with four consecutive losses. The result told a familiar story - a long-standing deficit of quality death bowling, even on a night where they had seven bowling options.
