Abu Dhabi, Apr 26: Royal Challengers Bangalore, boasting one of the best batting line-ups in Indian Premier League (IPL 7), crashed to the third lowest total in tournament's history.

AB de Villiers was out for a golden duck while Rs 14 crore worth Yuvraj Singh was sent back for just three runs.

There was nothing wrong with the pitch but good bowling effort from the Royals sent RCB packing to their lowest ever score.

Captain Virat Kohli was the top scorer with 21 runs while the next best was 18 from Mitchell Starc batting at eight. Only three batsmen crossed the 10-run mark, the other being Ravi Rampaul with 13.

At the toss, Kohli had said that he was expecting the match to be a high-scoring one. RR skipper Shane Watson had won the toss and opted to field. However, Kohli had said he wanted to bat first.

Veteran legspinner Pravin Tambe was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 4/20 in 4 overs.
