In front of this result, Bangalore team could only score 155 throws for losing 9 wickets in 20 increments, and the team had to face defeat by 54 runs. Chasing the goal, RCB did not have a good start, on such occasions the team could have sent the brilliant Dinesh Karthik, but he did not. Former Indian opener Virender Siwaj told the reason behind this.

After chasing 210 runs, Virat Kohli and Pfaff de Plessis returned to the winger in fifth. Mahipal Lomror came again to support Rajat Patidar, who was hitting third, but couldn’t show anything amazing. Mahipal returned to the winger after scoring 6 runs on three balls and losing RCB his third wicket in powerplay.

After the match, there was talk in the cricket lanes that RCB could capitalize on the experience of Dinesh Karthik, who has been playing the tournament’s playmaker thus far, into the top tier? In response to this question, Sehwag said that RCB’s decision to speculate on Lemore was the right one but that they were unable to implement it.
Speaking to Cricbuzz, Sehwag said, “Maxwell also came in for a 5 racquet. RCB was probably looking at a mix of left and right. Get that hand bat guy so he’s a rotating guy with a left leg. He can hit spinners (Rahul Shahar and Harpreet Brar). But Lemore couldn’t play the big roles. RCB’s reasoning was right but they couldn’t do it.
