While Punjab was struggling to get an above-par total at 154/6 at 18.4 overs, it was Shashank Singh’s 21-run cameo that fired the visitors to 176/6 in their 20 overs.

Virat Leads The Way

In reply, it was India’s talisman Virat Kohli who took the initiative right from the start, scoring 19 runs in the very first over against a talented Sam Curran.

Despite losing two wickets quite cheaply, Virat Kohli never let the intent go away from his side’s chase. Virat Kohli’s classy 77 showed once again why he is still one of the best hitters in white ball cricket.

However, the in-form Harpreet Brar sent the former RCB skipper back to the pavilion at 77 runs, which left RCB at 130/5 (16 overs)
