RCB were set a stiff target of 218 by Royals, but didn't have the kind of start they would have hoped for.

Even before a single ball was bowled in IPL 2018, Virat Kohli spoke about the present squad being one of the most-balanced Royal Challengers Bangalore sides ever.

Virat Kohli will lead RCB in IPL 2018. However, Bravo's scintillating 30-ball 68 put them on the brink of the win and later in the last over Jadhav snatched a win from the jaws of defeat. After the departure of Virat Kohli (57, SR: 190) and AB de Villiers (20) and the constantly mounting required run rate, it was always going to be a tough task for Bangalore.

Asked whether the team missed Sarfaraz Khan's big-hitting prowess (he has so far failed), Kohli replied,"We pick players not according to their performance in a particular match but to bring in balance in the team".

In the bowling department, Royals' pacers were rather ordinary on the day. But a fine penultimate over by Jasprit Bumrah - where he gave away just five runs - meant Delhi needed 11 from the final over by Rahman. After de Villiers' wicket, the hosts were at 114-4 and were left a huge mountain to climb, still requiring 104 runs in 7.3 overs.

But leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal bowled well in the middle over and bagged the prized wickets of Kohli and AB de Villiers.

For Boston Tuesday, it was all about Chris Sale who dominated the Yankees with eight strikeouts in six innings of one-run ball. Washington Nationals' Stephen Strasburg tossed eight innings of three-hit, shut-out ball in a 4-1 win over the Atlanta Braves.

Riding on Samson's 45-ball-92, Rajasthan Royals posted a competitive 217 for 4 on a batting belter and then managed to restrict the home team to 198 for 6, earning their second victory in three games.

Sanju Samson hit eight sixes before scoring his first four - an IPL record. Indian stalwart Yuvraj Singh strode to the crease and deposited a ball to the boundary, but a change of tack by Yadav saw the bowler go around-the-wicket and castle Yuvraj for his third scalp in one over, completely swinging the momentum inside the space of six balls.

After Mandeep Singh had struck a four, de Villiers essayed two consecutive sixes as 19 runs came off the over to put RCB in a strong position. The duo strung together a partnership of 73 runs.

Earlier, Rajasthan began their innings with a flurry of boundaries hit by skipper Ajinkya Rahane (36 off 20 balls).

It was absolute carnage at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Match 11 of this year's IPL as more than 400 runs were scored with the batsmen feasting on two below par bowling attacks in action and smashing the white ball into the orbit continuously right through the match.

Mandeep too was run out in the same over, but Washington Sundar smashed a couple of fours to take RCB home with three deliveries to spare.
