RCB vs GL 2017 meetings

The reverse leg was played at the RCB home, M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore. Once again, the Lions won the toss and elected to bowl first. This time, the Gujarat bowling looked in an excellent form as they accounted for the first three wickets inside first five overs only. Even from there, they didn’t let any RCB batsman settle down and sent the half-side back to the hut inside first 10 overs. Only Kedar Jadhav (31 runs off 18 deliveries) and Pawan Negi (32 runs off 19 deliveries) could make some contributions to take RCB to 134/10 in 20 overs. Australian pacer Andrew Tye returned with the brilliant figures of 3/12 in his 4 overs. Chasing the target, the Lions lost both openers, Ishan Kishan and Brendon McCullum, early in the chase. However, Suresh Raina (34 runs unbeaten) and Aaron Finch (72 runs off 34 deliveries) added 92 runs for the 3rd wicket to bat RCB out of the game. Raina alongside Ravindra Jadeja completed a dominating 7 wickets victory over RCB with 6.1 overs remaining. Only Samuel Badree could impress with the ball and spinner took two wickets for RCB. Andrew Tye was awarded man of the match.
