Needing 190 runs to win, Rajasthan lost their star opener Jos Buttler for 0 but a solid hand from Devdutt Padikkal and Yashasvi Jaiswal got their innings back on track. The pair put on 98 runs for the second wicket before Padikkal fell for 52 (34) against David Willey. Yashasvi 47(37) and Sanju Samson 22(15) were also dismissed in no time. Shimron Hetmyer failed to get the big hit and was run out for 3(9), however, a late cameo by Dhruv Jurel kept Rajasthan in the hunt. With 20 needed in the final over, Jureli only faced the final delivery when the match was already out of RR's hands as they managed to add 182/6 in 20 overs.

Earlier, Rajasthan bowlers made a tremendous comeback after the dismissals of Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell. Both the batsmen scored half-centuries as RCB posted a challenging total of 189/9 in 20 overs. The pair got into the proceedings after Trent Boult shocked the home side and reduced them to 12/2 in 2.1 overs. Unfazed by the early jitters, which included the prized wicket of Virat Kohli for 0(1), Maxwell and Du Plessis wasted no time as they put on 127(67) for the third wicket. Yashasvi ended du Plessis' 62(39) innings with a direct hit. R Ashwin dismissed Maxwell on 77(44).
