Cameron Green, who played a good innings of unbeaten 38 runs to take RCB to 218 runs, talked about the team's effort with the bat. He lauded the duo of Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis for their heroics and stated: 

"For sure, the wicket was quite tough when you bowl into the wicket, there was some bounce, I hope it stays the same in the second innings. Pretty crazy (on conditions changing after the rain break), Faf and Virat batted beautifully (against spin), gave us a nice little platform, they assessed the conditions well. 

"Don't know why it happened, but it was the same in Dharamsala as well. You can't put a figure on that, it's been the beauty of this season's IPL, it's not about keeping any score in mind, just have to get going and play your shots right from the start," he concluded.
