The Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Faf du Plessis won the toss and decided to bat first at the Wankhede Stadium. Virat Kohli lost his wicket on the first ball, but a splendid fifty from skipper Faf helped the Bangalore-based franchise finish with 192/3 in 20 overs.

Chasing 193 runs to win the match, the Orange Army lost wickets at regular intervals and eventually got all out for 125 runs. Wanindu Hasaranga stole the show with a five-wicket haul in the second innings.

Soon after RCB won the match, a Twitter used posted an interesting coincidence that the Royal Challengers Bangalore won only twice in the green jersey before, and both times, they finished runners-up. Thus, if the trend continues, RCB can make it to the IPL 2022 Final.

I was actually trying to get out because I was so tired: RCB captain Faf du Plessis

Faf du Plessis played the entire 20 overs of the Royal Challengers Bangalore innings and helped the team finish with a big score. Speaking at the post-match presentation, du Plessis said that he was also thinking about retiring out because he was very tired during his innings:

“If he (Dinesh Karthik) is hitting sixes like that, we want to get him in and bat as long as possible. He’s just so clear. To be honest, I was actually trying to get out because I was so tired, to get DK in. We were even contemplating – myself ‘retiring out’. And then, we lost that wicket. DK is in such good form,” said du Plessis.
