Royal Challengers Bangalore stretched their unbeaten streak to 3 matches in a row on Sunday as they registered a 38-run win over Kolkata Knight Riders in Match 10 to return to the top of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 points table.

Chasing a mammoth 205 for victory, KKR were restricted to 166 for 8 in 20 overs on the back of some superb bowling from spinners Kyle Jamieson, Yuzvendra Chahal and Harshal Patel at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.

KKR tried their best to make a fist of the run chase but kept losing wickets at regular intervals which led to their downfall. Gill got the two-time champions off to a flying start with his 9-ball 21 but they lost the momentum completely after his dismissal.

Andre Russell (31) and Shakib Al Hasan (26) provided some fireworks in the final few overs which reignited KKR's hopes but Kyle Jamieson's double strike in the 18th over ended the contest there and then. Jamieson bagged 3 wickets while Harshal Patel and Chahal grabbed 2 each and Washington Sundar took one.

Royal Challengers Bangalore top the table now with 6 points from 3 games and will play their next match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai for the first time this season when they take on Rajasthan Royals on April 22. KKR will also travel to Mumbai to face Chennai Super Kings on April 21.
