In a low-scoring thriller at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai, the Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Kolkata Knight Riders by three wickets. The match went into the last over with India chasing a meagre 129, until Dinesh Karthik struck Andre Russell for a six and a four to put the game out of reach. RCB gained their first win of the season as a result of this. Meanwhile, Wanindu Hasaranga was the star bowler in the RCB camp, as they bundled out KKR for 128 after inviting them to bat first. In his quota, the spinner took four wickets for 20 runs.

Venkatesh Iyer (14), Ajinkya Rahane (10) and Nitish Rana (10) got off to a bad start in the powerplay overs for KKR. Shreyas Iyer, who was fired on the 13th, fared no better (10). Andre Russell lit up the arena with some massive sixes, but he only scored 25 runs off 18 balls. In response, RCB got off to a rough start, losing three wickets in the powerplay overs to Umesh Yadav and Tim Southee. Following that, Sherfane Rutherfod and David Willey formed an important partnership, with Shahbaz Ahmed delivering a crucial 27 off 20 balls.
