Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) defended a modest total as Royal Challengers Bangalore crashed to their fifth straight defeat in the Indian Premier League on Friday. Axar Patel (38*) was the top scorer for Punjab, and also contributed with the ball for the visitors, picking up three wickets. Mandeep Singh (46) was Bangalore's highest scorer after Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers were all dismissed cheaply by Sandeep Singh. Speaking after the match, Kohli said he hadn't experienced so many batting collapses ever in his career. The RCB captain stated that he had no idea how to describe such a batting performance. (Scorecard

Sandeep Sharma (Man of the Match) says that he feels great to remove three top T20 players (Gayle, de Villiers and Kohli) in a single spell. Further adds that he is happy to contribute to a win. States that he has been focussing on the basics and looking to swing the ball by pitching it up. Maintains that having a great record against great batsmen like Gayle and Kohli is a huge boost for him. Reveals that the pitch did have some movement for him. Hopes that he can do his magic in the coming home games as well as he has a good record in Mohali just like he has in Bangalore.

Glenn Maxwell says that they did really well tonight. Credits Axar Patel's cameo with the bat in the end. Also praises his bowlers to defend such a low total against a mighty batting line-up. Adds that they have been on a good run but it's still a long way to go. Feels that they went too hard with the bat early on which backfired for them. Hopes to continue their form in Mohali and continue putting up such performances.

!

Virat Kohli says that he doesn't have any explanation for these performances. Feels nothing is going their way. Adds that preparation has been similar to last year's. Credits his bowlers but feels disappointed with his team's batting performance again. Informs that they tried to play with intent which didn't work for them either.

Sandeep Sharma's opening burst was brilliant as he claimed a 3-fer, bowling four overs on the trot to remove the big three batsmen of the opposition. The other bowlers too chipped in with Axar also getting a 3-fer to his name. It was a brilliant show from the all-rounder whose late blitz had given Punjab a respectable score to defend earlier in the evening. Punjab continue to stay alive in the playoffs race while Bangalore seem destined to finish at the bottom barring a miracle.

!

Brilliant win for Punjab. They weren't defending a big score but made optimum use of a sluggish surface to totally strangle Bangalore throughout. Mandeep Singh was the only batsman to get going as the more experienced names perished to shocking strokes. Pawan Negi threw his bat around lower down the order but the hosts fell well short in the end as they couldn't get a proper partnership going at all. If only a couple of batsmen had applied themselves, Bangalore could have got home but their performance was once again a reflection of the immense lack of confidence in the camp.

Mohit Sharma to Aniket Choudhary

OUT! Mohit Sharma completes the formalities. Slower back of a length delivery outside off. Choudhary looks to loft it over mid off but fails to get his timing right. The ball goes off the toe end of the bat towards Guptill, who makes no mistake. Once again Bangalore have been bowled out. This is the lowest total ever defended at this venue in the Indian T20 League. PUNJAB WIN BY 19 RUNS!

Full outside off, Choudhary goes hard at it but gets a bottom edge towards the keeper, who does really well to stop it on the dive.
