Impossible for RCB to win IPL with this bowling attack: Vaughan

Written by Praveen CA

Kolkata Knight Riders showcased an emphatic performance in their IPL 2024 clash against Royal Challengers Bengaluru on Friday, securing a commanding seven-wicket victory. The catalyst for their success was Venkatesh Iyer’s ruthless fifty, setting the tone for KKR’s pursuit of the 183-run target. Iyer’s aggressive innings of 50 runs off just 30 balls, embellished with three boundaries and four sixes, provided the necessary momentum for KKR’s chase after opener Sunil Narine whacked the RCB bowling attack in the initial overs.

This was RCB’s second loss in their third match and the cricket pundits are not too impressed with the side’s efforts with the ball.

Former England captain Michael Vaughan believes the Royal Challengers cannot possibly win the tournament with such a bowling attack.

“Impossible for @RCBTweets to win the IPL with this bowling attack .. #OnOn #IPL2024live,” Vaughan wrote.

With the loss to KKR, the RCB have fallen to the sixth spot in the IPL 2024 table with an NRR (net run rate) of -0.711. The side will return to action on April 2 with another home game against Lucknow Super Giants.
