RR beat RCB by 19 runs

Chasing a record 218 to win, Royal Challengers Bangalore failed to chase the target, despite Kohli sparkling with the bat.

De Kock and AB de Villiers’s efforts were not enough to mount a challenge for Rajasthan Royals and Mandeep Singh’s cameo came too late in the day for RCB, which helped only to narrow the margin of the loss.

Sportskeeda takes a look at the three unnoticed things from the match which had a considerable impact on the end result.

#1 Rampant Rahane

Rahane has always been trustworthy

Always trusted with batting through the innings, Ajinkya Rahane was forced to rework his strategy owing to an injury, where he pulled a muscle around his right knee in 3rd over.

After getting strapped, he minimized the running options and tried to deal with boundaries, which helped his side build a strong base, under which Sanju Samson built on, powering them to 217.

His innings of 36 included six fours and a solitary six, coming in quick time at 20 balls.
