Virat Kohli’s team won the match by 8 wickets and reached the second place in the points table. In front of dangerous bowling, KKR was able to give RCB the target of only 85 runs, which RCB achieved in 13.3 overs after losing 2 wickets.

After winning the toss, KKR came out to bat first and managed to score only 84 runs for the loss of 8 wickets in the scheduled over.
