After winning the toss, RCB captain Virat Kohli opted to bat first. Openers Dedvdutt Padikkal (32 off 23) and Aaron Finch (47 off 33) gave a solid base for the batsmen to follow as they put on 67 for the first wicket. Sportzpics

After the fall of Aaron Finch, AB de Villiers came to bat and provided the much-needed boost RCB needed, blasting 73 off 33 balls, which included 5 fours and 6 sixes. On a track where other batsmen struggled hard, de Villiers hitting seemed extra-oridnary. Thanks to the knock RCB posted 194/2 in 20 overs. Sportzpics

KKR never looked like being in the chase, from the beginning. They kept on losing wickets consistently, with their top-scorer Shubhman Gill finishing with just 34 runs. Not an ideal scenario for a side chasing 195. Sportzpics
