As Royal Challengers Bangalore crashed to the ground on Sunday night with a meager 49 runs on the board thereby registering a thrashing 82 run defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens. In the process, RCB have the terrible statistic of holding the lowest score in the IPL next to their name to give the remove suspended Rajasthan Royals from that ‘unwanted’ position.

None of the RCB batsmen moved to double digits with Kedar Jadhav top scoring with a 9. With the ball, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Chris Woakes and Colin de Grandhomme breathed fire to pick up three wickets each while Umesh Yadav got the other wicket.

Incidentally and rather ironically, this comes exactly four years on from the highest IPL total – also scored by RCB. Then they had scored 263/5 against defunct Pune Warriors. That day at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore, Chris Gayle had scored 175 while also seeing a cameo knock from AB de Villiers. In response, Pune could only muster 133/9 to lose by 130 runs.

The previous lowest score, 58 by Rajasthan Royals against RCB, came in the first game of IPL 2009. In fact, RCB have the terrible record of featuring four times in the list of scores under 100.
