Chasing 214 to win, Bangalore gave a poor account of themselves and could only go as far as 167/8 in 20 overs. Since then, they have under-performed. Although has been a pivotal bowler in the Indian Premier League, but for the moment he needs to tweak up his line and length just a little bit. Kohli said at the toss that the dampness and overhead conditions had prompted him to elect to bowl, an assessment that seemed ideal after the first two balls, both of which beat the inside edge, one of a right-hander and the other of a left-hander, one off the pitch another with bend through the air.

One week and 12 games into IPL 2018, a few trends have emerged. Chennai Super Kings beat them in the season opener by just one wicket with one ball left. "We can take lot of confidence from this game and move ahead".

The match will commence at 8:00 pm IST, Star Sports the official broadcast partner will telecast the match live. Getting ever so close and failing to cross over for three consecutive times can shatter the confidence of any team.

The start of the 2018 campaign for RCB has been up and down.

His seven fours and four sixes were a lone beacon of hope for RCB, however, as Krunal Pandya (3-28) built on the earlier good work of Mitchell McClenaghan, who had removed dangermen Quinton de Kock and AB de Villiers in the space of four balls. We expect a high scoring match and the bowling strategy would depend on the circumstances during the game. RCB bowlers couldn't contain the RR batters as they were smashed all over the park.

44 runs scored by Rohit Sharma in last three matches, the sequence being 18, 11 and 15. No matter who is in your batting line-up, chasing 217 is not going to be easy.

So, to register their second win, Bangalore need to set their bowling combinations right as, apart from leggie Yuzvendra Chahal, no other bowlers could rose to the occasion.

A team that has not suffered an expensive first over is Sunrisers Hyderabad. The team has been carried by the performances of youngster, Sanju Samson, and the numbers don't lie. The average run rate in the first over in the 2017 season was only 6.53.

If Mumbai Indians have their problems to sort out, having lost at the death in all three games so far, Royal Challengers Bangalore too have their own shortcomings to address with only one win in three games under their belt.
