The Indian Premier League (IPL) has witnessed some of the most thrilling cricket matches in the history of the sport. However, it is not often that a team posts the lowest ever score in the tournament’s history. That is exactly what happened on Sunday when Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) was dismissed for just 49 runs against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Eden Gardens. Here’s a look at 49 all out RCB, the lowest score in RCB’s history but also the lowest score in the history of the IPL.
49 all out RCB
RCB, led by Virat Kohli, started off the innings in a terrible manner as they lost three quick wickets in the first three overs. None of the RCB batsmen were able to get a grip on the KKR bowlers, who were relentless in their attack.
Kedar Jadhav was the highest scorer for RCB, scoring 9 runs off just 7 deliveries. This was a far cry from his usual flamboyant batting style and showed just how much the KKR bowlers had dominated the RCB batting line-up.
The RCB middle-order also failed to put up any resistance as the KKR bowlers continued to run through the RCB line-up. No batsman was able to reach double figures, which is a testament to the exceptional bowling performance by the KKR bowlers. The RCB innings lasted just 8.4 overs, with KKR winning the match by 82 runs.
This defeat was a huge disappointment for the RCB fans, who have been waiting for their team to lift the IPL trophy for years. RCB has been one of the strongest teams in the tournament, having reached the final thrice in the past, but they have never been able to win the tournament. This loss was a bitter pill to swallow for the RCB fans and players alike.

KKR, on the other hand, had a lot to celebrate after this match. They had put in an outstanding performance, both with the bat and the ball. Their bowlers had dominated the RCB batting line-up and restricted them to the lowest ever score in the IPL. The KKR batsmen also played their part, putting up a solid score of 131, which was more than enough to secure the win.
This match was a lesson for all the teams in the IPL, showing the importance of a strong bowling attack. KKR had put in a dominant performance with the ball, which was the key to their win. It also showed the importance of having a well-rounded team, with both batting and bowling strengths.
In conclusion, RCB’s all-out score of 49 will go down as one of the lowest moments in the history of the IPL. It was a disappointing result for the RCB team and fans, who had high hopes for the tournament. On the other hand, KKR’s outstanding performance in this match will be remembered as one of the best bowling performances in the history of the IPL. The tournament is filled with excitement and surprises, and this match was just a testament to that.
