Andre Russell scored a fiery 13-ball 48 as Kolkata Knight Riders thrashed Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by five wickets at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Friday. Russell smashes as many as seven sixes and a boundary in his unbeaten match-winning knock. Shubman Gill, who was unbeaten on three, took a quick single to help KKR chase down the target with five balls to spare. RCB, who sit at the bottom of the points table, suffered their fifth consecutive defeat in the IPL 2019. Earlier, Virat Kohli and AB de Villers scored impressive half-centuries as Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) posted a confident 205/3 in their allotted 20 overs. After being asked to bat, skipper Kohli gave RCB a flying start with opener Parthiv Patel (25). Following the dismissal of Patel, Kohli was joined by De Villiers and he went on to score 84 runs off 49 balls with the help of nine boundaries and two sixes. With this, Kohli also became the leading run-scorer in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL). De Villiers, who smashed 63 runs off 32 balls including five boundaries and four sixes, then shared a century stand with the RCB skipper. However, it was a 13-ball 28-run cameo by Marcus Stoinis that took RCB past 200. (SCORECARD)
