Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) managed to score 175 after being put to bat by Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the match 29 of Vivo IPL 2018. Brendan McCullum and Quinton de Kock gave RCB a decent start. It was Andre Russell who dismissed McCullum and Manan Vohra on consecutive balls in the 10th over. Virat Kohli took charge from then and guided RCB to a good total with his knock of 68*.

Sunil Narine always favours the RCB side and he has showed it today once again. Chris Lynn was dropped on 7 by Murugan Ashwin but he dismissed Narine in his very first over as well. Robin Uthappa had a good start again but was dismissed on 30 by Murugan again. In the end it was KKR who won comprehensively by 6 wickets.
