However, the Royals' batsmen sent RCB bowlers on a leather hunt posting 217/4. Sanju Samson delivered the match winning knock of 92 runs. In response, RCB could only manage 198/6. Here is our winner and sinner of this fixture.
Sanju Samson is the winner
Rajasthan Royals managed to reach the 200 run mark courtesy of the big-hitting exploits of their young batsman Sanju Samson. The Kerala lad scored an unbeaten 92 off 45 balls scoring at a strike rate of 204.44 to propel the Royals to 217/4. The right-handed batsman's innings included 2 fours and 10 massive sixes.
Brendon McCullum is the sinner
Royal Challengers' big-hitting opener Brendon McCullum is the sinner of this game. When you are chasing a 200+ target in the T20 format, the onus is always on the openers to give the team a good start in the powerplay. McCullum, however, failed to do so and his poor patch at the Chinnaswamy stadium continued. McCullum scored only 4 runs off 4 balls.
