Player of the Match
AB de Villiers was declared the Man of the Match for his spellbinding innings of 73 off 33.
D Karthick: Didn't do much wrong, to be honest, the RCB run-rate was under the check-up until AB went berserk. Today was one of those days where bowlers bowl well yet get hammered.
V Kohli: Everything is falling in place for Kohli this season, his batting unit is peaking at the right time. His bowlers are performing well. Overall, he had an excellent day as captain.
The match which looked promising when it started but ended up being a one-sided affair.
