Even the RCB Skipper was seen walking out with making it too only 1 run in 5 balls. But Aaron Finch, Ab de Villiers, and Washington Sundar did some work for the team as Finch scored 20 runs in 21 balls. de Villiers scoring 28 runs in 18 balls and Washington Sundar scoring 30 runs in 27 balls.

RCB did expect Umesh Yadav and Navdeep Saini to hold on the middle order but then they did not as Ravi Bishnoi and M. Ashwin successfully pulled in their wickets too.
