RCB beat Mumbai Indians despite Pandya heroics

first_imgROYAL Challengers Bangalore (RCB) stopped the rot with a 14-run Indian Premier League (IPL) victory over Mumbai Indians despite an excellent all-round display from Hardik Pandya.RCB had lost two consecutive matches to give themselves plenty of work to do in their quest for a top-four finish, but they claimed only a third win of the tournament at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium yesterday.Manan Vohra top-scored with 45 on a dry pitch, but the RCB lost their way, Brendon McCullum (37) and captain Virat Kohli (32) failing to go on after getting starts, posting 167-7.Pandya took 3-28 and made 50 off only 42 balls, but the RCB bowlers were much improved and raised their game in the field to claim an important victory.Defeat for defending champions Mumbai leaves them facing a major battle to reach the semi-finals.Vohra made his presence felt in only his third appearance of the tournament, smashing four sixes at the top of the order.JP Duminy suffered at the hands of the opener, who hit two sixes and two fours in four balls during a fourth over which went for 22.Pandya made a nightmare start, conceding seven runs off one ball when McCullum (37 from 25) hit a delivery above waist height over the ropes before taking full advantage of the free hit with a ramp for six to take 13 off one legal ball.Pandya was in no mood to feel sorry for himself, running former New Zealand captain McCullum out with a superb direct hit to leave RCB 121-3 in the 15th over.The India star also saw the back of Mandeep Singh and Washington Sundar as the RCB lost five wickets for 22 runs in the space of four overs.Colin de Grandhomme flexed his muscles in the final over with what proved to be a key contribution, emulating McCullum by hitting a full toss from fellow Black Cap Mitchell McClenaghan for six off what would have been the last ball and doing the same again with the free hit.de Grandhomme had already smashed the fourth delivery off the final over – which cost 24 – for a maximum to finish unbeaten on 23 off 10.The RCB bowlers have come in for some flak, but delivered under pressure on this occasion.Mumbai slumped to 84-5 when Umesh Yadav produced a great piece of fielding to send Duminy on his way and also finished with figures of 2-29.Tim Southee (2-25) and Mohammed Siraj (2-28) also made an impact, the former dismissing Pandya in the final over to all but end the contest.

Our goal is to go out there and start well. There was no need of calling up many foreign based players who end up sitting on the bench.“It will not take long for the players to adapt in my new style of play since they are professional,” Okumbi underscored.The former Mathare United head coach will be looking to guide Kenya to her first win in Group E after drawing 1-1 with Congo Brazzaville and losing 2-1 at home to 2012 champions Zambia.FULL SQUADGoalkeepers: Arnold Origi (Lillestrom, Norway), Boniface Oluoch (Gor Mahia), Lucas Indeche (AFC Leopards) and Ian Otieno (Posta Rangers)Defenders: Harun Shakava, Musa Mohammed (Gor Mahia), Brian Birgen, Omar Mbongi (Ulinzi Stars), Shariff Mohammed (Bandari), David Owino (Zesco United), James Situma (Tusker FC), Eugene Ochieng (Sony Sugar), Joseph Okumu (Chemelil Sugar) and Brian Mandela (Maritzburg United)Midfielders: Victor Wanyama (Southampton FC), Johannah Omollo (Antwerp), Collins Okoth, Francis Kahata (Gor Mahia), Patillah Omotto (Kariobangi Sharks), Johannah Erick, Roy Syamba (Mathare United), Clifton Miheso, Simon Abuko (AFC Leopards), Anthony Kimani, Shaban Kenga, David Kingatua (Bandari FC), Ayub Timbe (Lierse), Anthony Akumu (Zesco United) and Paul Were (FC Kalloni)Strikers: Michael Olunga (IF Djugardens), Aziz Okaka (Ushuru FC), Timothy Otieno (Posta Rangers), Jesse Were (Zesco United), Ovella Ochieng (Kariobangi Sharks) and Nicholas Kipkurui (Zoo Kericho).0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

She told arresting officers that she did not have room inside her car for all her passengers as she headed to Palmdale to visit her sister. Carol Rock, (661) 257-5252 [email protected] SAN FERNANDO – A Gardena woman who was arrested in May in Santa Clarita for transporting two children in the trunk of her car was sentenced Wednesday to a year in county jail and three years’ probation. Laverne Renee Dunlap, 35, was prepared to start serving her sentence immediately but her attorney requested additional time to allow Dunlap to attend Dependency Court to determine her children’s custody. “Her new surrender date is Jan. 23,” said Deputy District Attorney Carolyn McNary. The sentence is part of a plea agreement filed on Dunlap’s behalf in December when she pleaded no contest to a charge of child endangerment. Dunlap had seven children in her compact car when she was stopped on the Antelope Valley Freeway on May 20 in Santa Clarita. California Highway Patrol officers found a boy, 15, and a girl, 10, in her trunk. last_img read more
