Kings XI Punjab 150 for 2 beat Royal Challengers Bangalore 148 by eight wickets yesterday.

AB de Villiers, returning from a back injury and replacing Chris Gayle, made a jaw-dropping 89 off 46 balls, but the rest of Royal Challengers Bangalore was so woeful that Kings XI Punjab won with 33 balls to spare.

De Villiers arrived in the second over but by the end of the 15th, he had faced only 28 balls and scored 31 runs.

Mandeep Singh and Stuart Binny had taken most of the strike and scored at less than a run a ball.

In the last five overs, though, de Villiers faced 18 deliveries and scored 58 off them.

He helped RCB double their 15-over score of 71 and was the sole reason they got 148.
