Rajasthan Royals win toss, elect to bat against RCB

Chris Gayle and Lokesh Rahul shared a match-winning stand

With four fifties, including a 33-ball 73 against Kolkata Knight Riders, the former South African skipper has been in rampaging form this IPL.

Chasing Rajasthan's solid total of 177/6, Aaron Finch departed early for 14.

Rajasthan would have felt confident when Padikkal and Kohli were dismissed from successive balls spanning the end of the 13th over and start of the 14th, with Tewatia involved in both dismissals. But within minutes Kartik Tyagi picked up Kohli's wicket and all the pressure was then on de Villiers' shoulders. Kohli had whipped the ball but Tewatia stopped the ball, leaped over the boundary and then hoped back inside to complete a thrilling catch. De Villiers and Gurkeerat still needed 11 from Archer's final over, but the momentum had unquestionably shifted.

It was a surprise when Buttler did not stride out to open with England colleague Stokes - but his replacement, Robin Uthappa, revelled in his promotion, smiting 41 from 22 deliveries.

Morris gave RCB their first breakthrough when he had the subdued Stokes caught down the leg side.

Leg-spinner Chahal dismissed Sanju Samson (9) next ball - revenge for Samson creaming him for a monster 94-metre six over midwicket earlier in the over - to leave Rajasthan 69-3 after eight overs. RCB fans expect the team to get more such wonderful records in the future!

After losing three quick wickets, skipper Steve Smith and Jos Buttler took to the crease. Furthermore, none of their opening partnerships have lasted beyond the first three overs of the innings.

Smith struck six fours and one maximum before Chris Morris bowled a brilliant final over, conceding only four runs while taking two wickets to check RR from going past 180.

Chasing 178, De Villiers smashed six sixes to help RCB win the game after they found themselves in a hard position following the dismissal of Virat Kohli with the team struggling at 104 for three in the 14th over.

With ten century stands in the IPL history, Kohli and de Villiers have been flag-bearers of Bangalore 's batting line up over the years.
