With LSG needing one to win off the final ball, Harshal bowled a dot delivery to Avesh Khanbut Dinesh Karthik failed to collect the ball cleanly as the batters managed to steal the match-winning single.
Pooran recorded the season’s fastest fifty, reaching the landmark in only 15 balls. Earlier, Captain Faf Du Plessis, Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell smashed blistering half-centuries as RCB posted an imposing 212 for two after being sent into bat. While Du Plessis made an unbeaten 79 off 46 balls, Kohli took the center stage initially with his 44-ball 61-run knock, as the duo shared 96 runs for the opening wicket after being sent into bat.
