Presentation Ceremony of Lowest Total match 27 of VIVO IPL 2017:
"Very refreshing. Credit to the bowling attack, especially Coulter-Nile and Umesh for bowling quick," says Gautam Gambhir. "Not a lot of teams have pace like we have. Got three guys who can bowl over 140. The plan was to hit the deck hard and the plan worked. We didn't bat well at all. After where we were in the first six, we should've got 170. We need to pull up our socks in the batting department. If you want to win the tournament, you need to bring your A game out in all departments. It was moving around, so I thought there was no point in using spin. The bowling department was very professional, I've not seen as impressive an effort from the bowling attack like I did today. The plan to the bowlers was simple ' just use your pace and show to the world what you've got.' A lot of opponents think we're a chasing side. So if we win batting first, it gives us a lot of confidence.
Nathan Coulter-Nile is the Player of the Match for a ripper of an opening spell."I guess you have to come out steaming when you're just defending 130 odd. I just had a feeling we were going to do tonight. I haven't been bowling too much, I was so pumped up, I wasn't thinking too much about the no-balls. I thought if I can try to push the batsmen back and then pitch it up and swing, I could get wickets. We've got some world class spinners who didn't even get a ball today. The pitch suited us."
"Our worst batting performance, it really hurts," says an upset Virat Kohli. "After the kind of half that we had, we thought we could capitalise and chase it down. Reckless batting. I can't say anything at the moment. It was that bad. This is just not acceptable. The sightscreen is very small here, one guy got up as the bowler was loading up, that distracted me. Still it wasn't a big deal. That was just one down. Nine guys could have done the job. There's nothing to review anything about the second half, it was that bad. We need to forget it and move forward. We're a much better team. We got 200 plus in the last game. I'm sure everyone realises what they've done wrong. You have to come out, show intent and back yourselves. I'm sure we won't bat like that again in the tournament. After the start they got, the spinners did well. Restricting to 130 was a good effort. We're going back home for a couple of games. We've got back-to-back games, need to try and win those to get some momentum."
In a battle between two batting heavy sides, Narine emerged as the highest scorer. What a collapse this from RCB against pace. Sustained fast bowling of the highest quality from Nathan Coulter-Nile broke RCB's back early on. There was no looking back once he nipped out Kohli, de Villiers and Jadhav. He was backed up superbly by Umesh, Woakes and de Grandhomme. So grand was their bowling effort that Narine wasn't even needed.
Coulter-Nile to Gayle, 1 no ball, starts off by angling a full delivery outside off, which Gayle leaves. That's one of the biggest no-balls you've seen this season. Free-hit
Coulter-Nile to Gayle, no run, bangs one in short, Gayle is beaten for pace as he looks to pull, Gayle cops one on the glove and Gambhir takes the catch at short leg. Effort short delivery at 140 plus
Coulter-Nile to Gayle, 1 leg bye, looks to flick but the ball swings back in late to deflect off the pad to fine leg
Coulter-Nile to Kohli, OUT, they've snuffed out Kohli for a first-ball duck. He's livid with the shot, Gambhir and KKR are pumped. Eden roars. This is full outside off, the ball moves away a wee bit, Kohli shapes for the drive away from the body but is late on the stroke and Pandey takes it on the second attempt at a wide second slip.
V Kohli c Pandey b Coulter-Nile 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
Mandeep at No. 3. An opportunity to make up for an average season
Coulter-Nile to Mandeep Singh, 1 run, gets on top of the bounce and runs it down to third man to get off the mark
Kohli gestured to the fourth umpire near the sightscreen after getting out. Didn't seem happy with some movement around there. He immediately gestured to the fourth umpire to get people sorted there above the sightscreen. Smashed the bat really hard onto his pad as he walked off. Ouch
Coulter-Nile to Gayle, no run, floats a full delivery across Gayle, who lets it go again
Coulter-Nile to Gayle, no run, right behind that good length delivery on middle in defence. Top over to begin your defence of a modest total
Coulter-Nile to de Villiers, OUT, oh, dear. What is happening at Eden? AB tries to fetch a pull from outside off and the extra pace of Coulter-Nile doe the trick as AB top-edges the pull to Uthappa behind the stumps. The bottom hand came off the glove as he completed the pull, the ball was swirling for a long time, Uthappa called for it and pouched it cleanly on the dive. That delivery was a shade under 150 clicks
AB de Villiers c †Uthappa b Coulter-Nile 8 (6b 2x4 0x6) SR: 133.33
de Grandhomme to Negi, OUT, Got the previous one to slant away, brought this back in to nail him. Super. Negi looks to work across the line when he should have been looking to play straighter. Once he missed, he was a dead duck. Eden Gardens roars. RCB in danger of being bowled out for the lowest-ever IPL score
P Negi lbw b de Grandhomme 2 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66
If KKR manage to win, this will be only the 10th time a score of 131 or under is defended successfully in IPL
RCB's lowest total is 70. Lowest total for any team in IPL is 58, by RR v RCB in 2009.
de Grandhomme to Mills, OUT, another nothing shot and gone! Length ball outside off, he looks to wallop this across the line over midwicket but miscues it towards mid-off. Kuldeep sprints in from long-off, calls clearly to keep the cover fielder off, settles underneath it and takes it on the move. Superb
TS Mills c Kuldeep Yadav b de Grandhomme 2 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00
de Grandhomme to Aravind, 1 run, thick inside-edge down to fine leg. Played outside the line of that length ball that nipped back in
de Grandhomme to Chahal, no run, gets this to wobble away from outside off, Chahal is beaten
de Grandhomme to Chahal, OUT, pokes at a length ball going away with an angled bat, gets an edge that flies low to Pandey who dives to his left to complete a stunning catch. What a capitulation this. RCB bundled out for the lowest score in IPL history.
YS Chahal c Pandey b de Grandhomme 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
