RCB vs SRH

Travis Head fell in the first over while Abhishek Sharma fell in the fourth. Markram then fell in the fifth over to debutant Swapnil Singh and then SRH's batting talisman Heinrich Klaasen fell off the last ball of that over. SRH have thus lost four wickets in the powerplay for the first time this season.

The collapse continued as the SRH batters tried to maintain their reputation for big-hitting and perished. Karn Sharma sent back Nitish Reddy and Abdul Samad, the two recognised Indian batting talents down the order for SRH. They managed to survive their full 20 overs though, eventually ending their innings on 171/8. Royal Challengers Bengaluru won by 35 runs
