Indore: Both Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore come off victories. RCB, minus their big guns Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, beat Delhi Daredevils at Chinnaswamy by 15 runs on Saturday. But KXIP were emphatic in victory against the captain-studded Rising Pune Supergiants. Kings XI Punjab’s win against Steve Smith’s Rising Pune Supergiants was a complete team show. The pace-spin combination of Sandeep Sharma and Axar Patel restricted RPS to 163 for 6. Ben Stokes’ maiden 50 and a cameo 40 not out off 23 balls from Manoj Tiwari boosted Steve Smith’s team.
