Another disappointing match for Punjab super kings yesterday in which they can blame only themselves. After setting themselves a challenging total of 182 in the first innings they helped the Bangalore royal challengers to win the match easily by providing a lot of drop catches. Punjab was on control even after 16 overs of the Bangalore innings. But it was the sensational striking which Robin Utthapa displayed in the 17 the over that Brett lee bowled which turned the match completely against Punjab. At 48 needed from 4 over Bangalore was breathing very easily after Brett lee’s over having taken 25 runs from the 17th over that lee bowled. With more than 3 drop catches with Bopara, Sreesanth and the captain sangakkara himself as culprits, the Punjab team was not playing in a way that they deserve a victory .a good and solid inning s played by Kevin Petersen then another blazing innings by virat kohli and a yet another blazing knock in which robin scored 22 of 8 balls eventually gave Bangalore an easy win. The team strength of Bangalore is very evident considering the fact that a they have been winning matches keeping a superb striker like Ross Taylor as a spectator and the legendary cricketer Rahul Dravid not even getting a chance to bat. So all the hopes of Punjab had died with this match.
