Watch cricket highlights of Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mohali Kings XI from IPL 2009 - 2nd Leg.
Scoreline: RCB 145/9: van Der Merwe 35 (19) - Yusuf Abdulla 4 wickets (including a wicket maiden), Yuvraj Singh hat trick
Mohali fall short:137/7 - Yuvraj Singh 50 (34) - Anil Kumble 4-25-2
It was bound to happen - Bangalore improving after the exit of KP. It has nothing to do with KP the player. More to do with the 4 overseas players/team rule. Now that Kallis the captain has been taken out, wonder why Bangalore still continue to play him leaving Taylor and Steyn out. Anyway, team selection hasn’t been delegated here, so better move on.
Too bad for Yuvraj to have a hattrick and a fifty and still lose. While Praveen Kumar did bowl a fantastic final over, the 19th over bowled by Anil Kumble was the game-swinging one. 17 runs off 12 balls, Sangakkara and Pathan batting, and Kumble gets Sangakkara while conceding just 4 runs.
