The England star played a crucial role in helping KKR post 200/5 in 20 overs after being asked to bat first. His 29-ball stay on the crease saw him blast 56 runs including four fours and five sixes.
The 32-year-old was dismissed on the final ball of the 10th over by RCB pacer Vijaykumar Vyshak. Roy shuffled across the crease as Vushak’s delivery crashed directly into his leg-stump. Roy hit one one of the bails while screaming furiously at himself.
