Clinical performance by @KKRiders . Lynn played with a lot of responsibility and DK's quick cameo was crucial. RCB continue their struggle with the bowling. Dropped catch of Lynn proved costly too. #RCBvKKR

#RCBvKKR, Kohli took a catch that was too little too late for the team but rubbed tons of salt on the ashwin’s hurt of dropping the catch. Also something to blame for in the post match interview. But it was KKRs day!🙏
