The leggie picked up three big wickets of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Hetmyer.
RR won the toss and opted to bowl first. Both the temas made certain changes to their playing eleven.
RCB got off to a decent start scoring 48 in first six. But then in came the leggie who just spun a web around RCB. Shreyas Gopal as mentioned got three huge wickets. Parthiv Patel looked to be batting on a different surface as he scored 67. Stoinis brought in as replacement held one end and with Moeen Ali in the death overs finished at 158. This score looked below par.
RR had a great opportunity to get the much needed two points on the table and they did that comfortably in the end. Both the openers Rahane and Buttler were off to a flier scoring 55 off first six. However Virat Kohli dropped Rahane when the batter was on 1.
Chahal got the all important breakthrough by trapping Rahane in front of the stumps. Buttler meanwhile on the other hand got going and brought up his 50, second of this IPL. He too was dismissed by Chahal. Tripathi and Steve Smith made sure that there were no additional hiccups as they batted sensibly and playing risk free shots. The hosts in the end won by 7 wickets with a ball to spare.
Shreyas Gopal was rightly given Man of the Match.
RCB looked below par in every department specifically fielding. They had dropped catches which one would expect them to hold on to. It is high time now for RCB as they need to win 8 out of the remaining 10 matches to qualify for Play-offs.
