Captain Virat Kohli did not last long either. He was held out in deep mid-wicket on the bowling of Natrajan for 14.

AB Devilliers batted authoritatively and he was very brutal on the bowlers. Before being run out, he scored 51(30b, 4×4, 2×6). Due to his gutsy hitting, in the end, RCB scored 163 for 5 wickets. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar was a very economical bowler for SRH as he gave only 25 runs in his 4 overs.

SRH began their inning on a disastrous note. When it looked all well for David Warner, he was runout at non-striker end as he was backing too much. But a partnership of runs between Bairstow and Manish Pandey steadied the inning. Pandey perished while trying to increase the run rate for 34. Bairstow continued his inning with some good shots. He was bowled by Chahal for 61(43.b, 6×4,2×6). Two consecutive wickets by Chahal brought some life to the game.
