Punjab Kings Defeat Royal Challengers Bangalore by 54 Runs

Trends

20 overs. Royal Challengers Bangalore tried to match their scoring rate initially but lost wickets at regular intervals as their chase derailed against some disciplined bowling by the Punjab Kings bowlers, especially Rishi Dhawan (2/36), Kagiso Rabada (2/16) and Rahul Chahar (2/37).

Earlier, RCB captain Faf du Plessis won the coin toss and opted to bowl first at the Brabourne Stadium. While Bangalore went unchanged, Punjab made one change with spinner Harpreet Brar replacing pacer Sandeep Sharma. Faf said toss isn’t making much of a difference anymore.

“The trends in the competition suggests that the wickets are getting better, toss isn’t making much of a difference,” he said. PBKS captain Mayank Agarwal said it wasn’t a bad toss to lose. “Not a bad toss to lose. Want to put runs on the board and put pressure on them. Obviously, runs on the board is a factor,” he said.
