After opting to bowl first in the match, the Royal Challengers Bengaluru bowling unit did a fantastic job and reduced GT to 3/19 by dismissing Wriddhiman Saha, Shubman Gill, and Sai Sudharsan for low scores. Shahrukh Khan and David Miller next came together and they were involved in a 61-run partnership that helped GT gain some momentum.

After the duo got out, Rashid Khan and Rahul Tewatia joined forces and together they added 44 runs in 29 balls. The partnership between Rashid and Rahul was broken by Yash Dayal who cleaned up the Afghanistan star. Rashid Khan was back in the hut after scoring 18 runs off 14 balls, with 2 fours and 1 six.

On the third ball of the 18th over, Yash Dayal bowled a 136.1kph yorker and Rashid Khan shuffled across to play a shot towards the leg side. He missed the ball completely and saw his stumps getting rattled.
