But it was Dinesh Karthik’s 32 off 14 that saw RCB post 205/2 after Mayank Agarwal opted to bowl first.

began at RCB in style with Faf Du Plessis setting the stage with a fantastic 88. Virat Kohli and Dinesh Karthik with 41 and 32 aided him in the cause as RCB set a mammoth 206 run target for Punjab Kings at the DY Patil Stadium.

However, Punjab Kings made the best work of the DY Patil Stadium pitch. Shikhar Dhawan and Mayank Agarwal put PBKS on course with a 63-run opening stand. After Mayank was dismissed, Dhawan and Bhanuka Rajapaksa continued ticking the scorecard at a good pace. Their 47-runs stand of just 25 balls did the trick. Rajapaksa scored 43 off 22 while Dhawan scored 43 off 29.

While Mohammed Siraj’s twin strike did bring RCB back in the game, Shahrukh Khan and Odean Smith had other ideas. In the 18th over, Shahrukh and Odean hammered 25 runs off Mohd Siraj to end the game for RCB. Odean Smith remained unbeaten on 25 off 8 while Shahrukh scored 24 off 20 to see off a mediocre RCB bowling attack
