Coming to the match, the skipper of RCB, Virat Kohli decided to bat first at Sharjah after winning the toss against Kings XI Punjab. Though their openers provided them with a decent start, the middle-order batsmen of RCB could not utilize it.

After losing the wickets of both the openers, the skipper of RCB made such a surprising decision not sending AB de Villiers at number 4. Instead of de Villiers, the left-handers like Washington Sundar and Shivam Dube was promoted up the order.

With both Sundar and Dube failed to grab the opportunities and lost their wickets cheaply, de Villiers came to crease but has scored just 2 runs. With the help of Virat’s 48 off 39, his franchise posted a decent total of 171 on their board.

While chasing a target of 172, the openers of KXIP provided them with a brisk start in the powerplay. Mayank Agarwal took the responsibility and smashed the RCB bowlers all around the park before getting dismissed by Chahal.

However, the partnership between KL Rahul and Chris Gayle reduced the confidence levels of RCB bowlers. Though Gayle started his inning slowly, he launched an attack later on the bowlers of RCB.

When everyone thought that the game would be finished inside the 18th over, the RCB bowlers put the pressure on KXIP batsmen and took the game to the 20th over.

When they needed just 2 runs in the final over, Chahal bowled a brilliant over. However, Nicholas Pooran hit a massive six on the final ball to win the game for his franchise.
