This brought in A B de Villiers to the crease and he showed his improvisation soon after Harbhajan Singh was brought on to bowl the first over after power play, at the end of which RCB were 49 for 1, by reverse-hitting the off spinner for a four. The senior bowler then leaked 13 runs in his second over with Kohli hitting him for two fours while de Villiers contemptuously pulled Hardik Pandya for a six as RCB raced to 89 in 10 overs. Krunal brought MI back in the game in dramatic fashion by dismissing the two set batsmen in the next over, his second. Kohli was caught on the long-off boundary while de Villers was lured out and stumped as MI slid to 93 for 3 from 91 for 1 in five balls. Bumrah dismissed Shane Watson in the next over with a catch at the wicket as the batsman flirted with a short, wide ball to make it 99 for 3. The batsmen brought together by the fall of these three quick wickets, league debutant Travis Head and youngster Sarfaraz Khan. The former made a slow start before gradually upping the ante to hammer 2 fours and as many sixes including a pulled six off McClenaghan in the penultimate over. The diminutive Indian player gave him good support and also swung McClenaghan for a pulled four and six in the 19th over of the innings that yielded 18 runs. RCB added 47 runs in the last four overs.
