Punjab Kings' explosive batting made a rollicking first appearance as they chased down Royal Challengers Bangalore's 205 with an over to spare. Odean Smith took all the pressure off Shahrukh Khan at the death with some belligerent hitting in the 18th over to kill the chase He pilfered 25 off Siraj even as the pacer tried bowling the tramline stuff. Smith, though, displayed his range-hitting prowess by hitting sixes over cover and long-off.
Scores: Punjab Kings 208 for 5 (Rajapaksa 43, Dhawan 43, Agarwal 32, Siraj 2-59) beat Royal Challengers Bangalore 205 for 2 (du Plessis 88, Kohli 41*, Karthik 32*) by five wickets
