Rajasthan easily chased down Bangalore’s total of 183, reaching the target in 19.1 overs with four wickets in hand. Captain Sanju Samson provided strong support with a quickfire 69 off 42 balls.

Despite a valiant century from Virat Kohli (113* off 72 balls), Bangalore’s bowling attack couldn’t contain the Royals’ momentum. Rhys Topley, Yash Dayal, and Mohammed Siraj picked up a wicket each for RCB.

Earlier, Rajasthan won the toss and elected to field. Bangalore posted a competitive 183/3, with Faf du Plessis contributing 44 before Kohli’s explosive knock. Yuzvendra Chahal (2 wickets) and Nandre Burger (1 wicket) were the standout bowlers for Rajasthan.

This victory solidifies the Rajasthan Royals’ position at the top of the IPL table, remaining unbeaten after four matches. Bangalore, meanwhile, drops to eighth place with one win and four losses in five games.
