About the match: 

It was the 52nd match of the tournament, and it was scheduled between Gujarat Titans & Royal Challengers Bengaluru. The venue of the match was  M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, and the match started at 7:30 PM. 

The toss story: 

Faf Du Plessis wins the toss for RCB and decides to bowl first against the Gujarat Titans.

The final scorecard: 

Gujarat went to bat first and posted a target of 147 runs in 19.3 overs. Royal Challengers Bengaluru scored 152/6 in 13.4 overs and won the match by 4 wickets while 38 balls remained.


It was the perfect start for the Royal Challengers Bengaluru as they dominated through the powerplay by picking up four wickets in the powerplay led by two from Mohammed Siraj to get rid of the opening pair. Green cleaned up Sai Sudarshan as GT looked to be in deep waters. But David Miller and Shahrukh Khan got a fifty-run partnership to get going but were not able to stick around as they crumbled in the end and set a target of 148 runs to win for RCB.

Will Jacks has been the batter in form for the home side who is coming on the back of a scintillating century against the Titans at Ahmedabad. He will be expected to make better use of the conditions at Bengaluru and possibly be able to capitalize on the conditions and register a big score.

For GT, Shubman Gill has been struggling with consistency and he will likely look to put that behind him and continue scoring the big runs right at the top of the order.

Post-match reactions: who said what? 

Royal Challengers Bengaluru skipper Faf du Plessis reflected on his team’s performance after the crucial win over Gujarat Titans to move up on the points table. 

“We’ve been really good in the last few games, with both bat and ball. We’ve been unbelievable in the field as well. The wicket was a bit different, there was a bit more bounce. Wanted to make sure we take that information from the pitch and give it to the bowlers. Yes there was a dropped catch but it’s the effort that we look for and that was there throughout,” he said. 

RCB captain accepted that batters were supposed to be calmed down after losing the 4 wickets.  

“The games we’ve played here have all been high-scoring, anything around 180-190 would’ve been par. Was important we didn’t look at the scoreboard when we went out to bat and try and play the way we play. Was a bit nervous. Probably not the best assessment from us there. Yes we wanted to go out there and get the total quickly to boost the NRR but probably when we were 4 down, we had to calm down a little bit,” he added.

While it is a big blow for GT. Shubman was looking heartbroken after the defeat. 

“It all depends on the wicket, you see the first couple of overs. You get an idea and you play according to that. I think 170-180 on this wicket would have been a good total. I think how we batted in the powerplay and how we bowled in the powerplay, that made a difference,” Gill said.

The talented batter further revealed that they have to change their plans after losing early wickets as Vijay Shankar had to come up as an Impact Player instead of Sandeep Warrier.

“We would have an extra bowling option (had we not lost early wickets.) Never easy. It’s important for us to start from zero (in the next game), need to move on. Many positives to take from this game, need to make sure we don’t repeat our mistakes. It’s all about winning everything we can from here on,” he added.
