Parag scored an unbeaten 56 off 31 balls, which included three 4s and four 6s. In response, Bangalore lost Virat Kohli cheaply on 9. Faf du Plessis, who looked in good touch, was dismissed on 23, while Glenn Maxwell fell for a golden duck. Earlier in the evening, Rajasthan started on a poor note after being invited to bat first.

Shimron Hetmyer too fell cheaply, adding just three runs on the board. Meanwhile, Mohammed Siraj, Josh Hazlewood and Wanindu Hasaranga returned with two wickets each. Harshal Patel also picked one, while Prasidh Krishna was run-out.
