KKR files first victory in IPL 5


Kolkata Knight Riders 165/8 (20/20 overs)
RCB 123/9 (20/20 overs)
Kolkata Knight Riders won by 42 runs



The Kolkata Knight Riders played a good knock here on tuesday, at Bangalore to upset the home crowd. KKR being a good team with experienced players in the side was tried a lot of things to file their victory in the current IPL 5 season. However, they lost their previous two matches now under Gambhir's captaincy played a good knock to beat Royal Challengers Bangalore.

L Balaji is the pick of bowlers with 4 wickets in his allotted limited overs. Gambhir 64 and kallis 22 started up well the game for KKR. And supported by Bisla 46 helped to manage 165 on the board. 

The bowling was pretty well with Bret Lee who is wicket less was well shaped the attack by L Balaji who picked up 4 wickets. Also Kallis and Shakib al Hassan each with 2 wickets bowled a good spell along with Ten Doeschate who got 1 wicket.

It is been a team effort under Gambhir's captaincy to stop RCB from making 166 and to reduce them for 123 on the board in a tougher situation to file their first victory in the on-going series. All the best KKR, hope Shahrukh Khan might be quiet happy with the win.
