Faf du Plessis made a well-paced 64-ball 96 to anchor the innings, while Josh Hazlewood bagged an IPL career-best four-fer as Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Lucknow Super Giants by 18 runs in Mumbai. Du Plessis reached his 50 off 40 balls and despite losing Shahbaz, he continued to twin rotation of strike with shots to push the scoring rate. RCB won their fifth game of the IPL season to jump to the second spot with 10 points on the table.
