The Challengers embarked on a strong start, propelled by a formidable 40-run partnership between Virat Kohli and Faf du Plesis. However, Kohli succumbed to M Siddharth's bowling in the 5th over after contributing 22 runs off 16 balls. Subsequently, the RCB skipper was followed by Faf du Plesis, who fell victim to the pace of Mayank Yadav after scoring 19 runs from 16 deliveries.

Glenn Maxwell's batting woes persisted as he departed without scoring yet again, falling victim to Mayank Yadav for the second time in the match. Mayank secured his second wicket of the evening by dismissing Cameroon Green for 9 runs off 9 balls in the 8th over.

In the first innings, Opener Quinton de Kock hammered a 56-ball 81 but Royal Challengers Bengaluru pulled things back in the death overs to restrict Lucknow Super Giants. De Kock went berserk at the start of the innings, raising 53 runs for the opening wicket with skipper K.L Rahul (20) and 56 for the third wicket with Marcus Stoinis (24) after RCB skipper Faf du Plessis won the toss and opted to field first.

However, RCB pulled things back a bit, sending down some miserly overs towards the end of the innings before Nicholas Pooran hammered five sixes in the last two overs for 40 not out off 21 deliveries to help them to a defendable total. Glenn Maxwell was the best of the RCB bowlers with 2-23 off his four overs.
