Umesh's pace colleague Kulwant Khejroliya and Chris Woakes and off-spinner Washington Sundar then took over in the later part of the KXIP innings with two wicket apiece as the visiting side could not even complete their allotted 20-over quota as they were all out in 19.2 overs. Skipper Ajinkya Rahane scored 36 off 20 balls.

The Royals, however, began nervously, with D'Arcy Short unable to break free against RCB's spinners and his hesitancy continued between wickets, although neither partner ran each other out this time.

RCB, during the chase, fought to some extent as Virat Kohli got into his beast mode and smacked his first half-century in IPL 11, but once he was caught on the boundary off Shreyas Gopal trying to deposit a half-tracker into the stands, the game was as good as over for RCB.

RCB are now sitting in the fifth position on the points table, while RR are placed on the sixth position on the points table.

Virat Kohli: Team's looking good, we're going to bowl first today as well. Both teams have played two games each so far, with one win each. They needed 48 runs from the last two overs. While in their second match, RR recovered from a poor start to post a reasonable total in a rain-affected contest against the Delhi Daredevils.
