Yuvraj’s?68 hands RCB win over Daredevils

2014-05-14 00:00

YUVRAJ Singh smashed an unbeaten 68 from just 29 balls to help the Royal Challengers Bangalore post an imposing total of 186/4 and victory by 16 runs in their IPL match against the Delhi Daredevils at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium last night.

The Daredevils managed just 170/7 in reply and never looked likely to stage a serious challenge despite a lusty 48 from South Africa’s JP Duminy whose knock came from just 30 balls and contained three fours and three sixes.

Yuvraj struck a remarkable nine sixes in his innings, including two “hat-tricks” with three in a row against Proteas legspinner Imran Tahir and Rahul Shukla in the final over which cost an eye-watering 27 including a wide and a no ball, and four sixes.

AB de Villiers scored a dazzling 33 from just 17 balls before medium pacer Siddarth Kaul hit the top of off stump.

De Villiers’s delivery suggested a total of around 150 would be par, but Yuvraj changed that perception.
