Mitchell Santner got a fingertip and there was a deviation as the ball went to hit the stumps at bowlers end. Faf du Plessis didn't ground his bat and umpire Michael Gough after several looks declared the batter out to jolt the the Royal Challengers Bengaluru fans. 

Faf du Plessis on his way back didn't look happy as he shrugged his head away and walked back to the dug-out. Virat Kohli too looked angry and so did Rajat Patidar as the Royal Challengers Bengaluru batter was given out at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
