In reply, RCB lost wickets at crucial times during the innings and fell short by 19 runs.

Ajinkya Rahane: We were looking to bowl first as well, but it doesn't matter whether you bat or bowl first as long as you start and end well.

This was after the RCB bowlers, led by pacer Umesh Yadav who took three wickets in an over, had shot out the KXIP for 155 after being sent into bat.

Unperturbed by the sudden fall of wickets, opener Lokesh Rahul (47) played sensibly and also hammered the bowlers all around the park before getting out in the 12th over to spinner Washington Sundar.

Local boy K Gowtham struck in the first over of the chase to dismiss McCullum for 4 but Kohli combined with de Kock to shave 64 runs off the target in the first six overs.

In the second game, Punjab survived a big scare from MS Dhoni (79* off 44 balls) as they beat CSK by 4 runs in a thrilling encounter in Mohali. Luckily these missed chances didn't cost the team a win.


Sanju Samson hit eight sixes before scoring his first four - an IPL record.

Ben Stokes (27) then assisted Samson to maintain the tempo of RR with a stand of 49.

While Samson went on rampage in the final over's, he found able partner in form of Jos Buttler (23 runs of 14 balls) and Rahul Tripathy (14 runs of 5 balls) as he registered the highest score of the tournament and also laid his hands on orange cap. Quinton de Kock was batting well on 26 untill he pulled one straight in the deep.

Nearly four hours before Royal Challengers Bangalore's first home game of the Indian Premier League 2018 season, fans in red and black thronged the M Chinnaswamy stadium.

RR jump to the third spot while RCB remain intact at the sixth position in the 2018 IPL points table. From there on, it was RR's game as seldom does RCB pull of stunning wins without their two mainstays. Both the skippers came to the ground for the toss session, and Virat Kohli RCB skipper won the toss and like the trend is going he chose to bowl first. Buttler hit a six against Woakes and two fours against spinners Chahal and Pawan Negi before losing his wicket to Woakes. The Bangalore outift never really recovered from that set back and Washington Sundar with a 19-ball 35 and Mandeep Singh 25-ball 47 only helped in reducing the margin of defeat.

Rajasthan Royals will also work towards educating the people to apply best practices to go green - auto pooling, rain water harvesting, waste management etc.
