Rajasthan Royals won the toss and elected to bowl first. Rajasthan’s bowling attack did a really good job to restrict Royal Challengers Bangalore at 158-4 in 20 overs. Virat Kohli opened the batting along with Parthiv Patel and he was looking good before he was dismissed by Shreyas Gopal for 25-ball 23.
AB de Villiers came in and scored 9-ball 13 before he was sent back by Shreyas Gopal. Shimron Hetmyer continued his poor streak of performances as he was dismissed by Shreyas Gopal. Parthiv Patel scored a beautiful half-century before he was dismissed by Jofra Archer for 41-ball 67.
Marcus Stoinis and Moeen Ali finished it for RCB as they made 31 and 18 runs respectively. Both of them hit 2 fours and 1 six each in their innings to take Bangalore to 158 runs.
Shreyas Gopal took three wickets for Rajasthan, while Jofra Archer took one to his name. Gopal also had the best economy rate in the lot as he went for just 12 runs in his four overs.
