Kolkata Knight Riders made short work of Royal Challengers Bangalore's star-studded batting lineup to and script a remarkable 82-run win in a high-voltage Indian Premier League game at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Sunday.
Chasing the KKR's low 131, the visitors were bundled out for 49, the lowest total in the Indian Premier League. The previous being was 58 by Rajasthan Royals against RCB in 2009.
Nathan Coulter-Nile (3/21), Chris Woakes (3/6) and Colin de Grandhomme (3/4) starred with the ball for the hosts as they skittled out their rivals for their lowest score ever.
Coulter-Nile set the tone for the hosts, removing RCB skipper Virat Kohli for a golden duck as he chased a fullish delivery outside off stump to give a simple catch to keeper Robin Uthappa.
Umesh Yadav got Mandeep Singh's (1) back with the latter cutting straight to Manish Pandey at point, but it was Coulter-Nile who bowled a fiery first spell (3-0-21-3) sending the dangerous AB de Villiers (8) back in the hut after the South African hit two boundaries.
Kedar Jadhav (9) too failed to negotiate the Australian as the 2016 runners-up were tottering at 4/24.
