Head scored an impressive hundred, 4th fastest in the history of IPL, he scored 102 runs in 41 balls while Klassen scored 67 off 31 with the strike rate of 216.1. Following this striking start, Markram & Samad too broke upon RCB bowlers, Markram scored 32 off 17 while Samad scored 37 in just 10 balls.

Going after such a huge target was not easy but Royal Challengers are known for such unbelievable moments, they fought till end and scored 262 runs most by any team in T20 cricket while chasing. Virat Kohli & Faf Du Plessis set the platform for batters with a attacking start. Kohli scored 42 off just 20 balls while Faf was looking good with 62 off just 28 balls untill he was eaten out by Cummins. RCB lost their way in the middle when Patidar got cought playing a lofted shot & Sourabh Chauhan got LBW out playing his first bowl following run out of Will Jacks. Though RCB was still in the game chasing the unchasable when Dinesh Karthik started showing his skills on field, DK scored 83 off just 35 balls, got unlucky when he was cought by Klassen in Natrajan's over.
