For the fourth time in as many games in the UAE leg, Royal Challengers Bangalore failed to strike in the PowerPlay as Rajasthan Royals jettied off to 56 for none. At the end of the 11th over, Kohli's men were staring down the barrel with Evin Lewis in a punishing mood. Though Rajasthan couldn't quite capitalize on the momentum provided by the openers and ended up huffing to a below-par 149/9. Fluent contributions from Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell and Srikar Bharat were enough to lend RCB their seventh win of the campaign.
