Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad have played the ball on merit so far, respecting the testing lines and lengths and putting away anything marginally loose. It was the same template they had employed to great effect in their previous game against SRH. Earlier, RCB started with a bang in the powerplay, initially through some streaky edges but Faf du Plessis then found his groove to explode a fair bit. However, the dry surface assisted spin and the trio of tweakers came to the fore at different stages to ensure that the score didn’t get totally out of hand.
