Openers Virat Kohli and Du Plessis both played casually in the first fielding RCB squad. As the RCB team struggled against spin this season, Dhoni gave prominence to spinners. The RCB team also played with difficulty against the spinners.
Goalie 30 (33) and Du Plessis 38 (22) were bowled out by Moin Ali. Glenn Maxwell was also run out for 3 (3) due to the crisis.
Following this, spinner Deekshana took the wicket of Lamrore 42 (27). Next Rajat Patidar 21 (15) Pretorius was bowled out for a big score and the RCB started to suffer a severe setback. In the end Hasaranga 0 (1) and Shahbaz Ahmed 1 (2) both bowled Deekshana.
Finally in the last over, Pretorius bowled Dinesh Karthik for two sixes. The RCB team added 173/8 in 20 overs.
