A fine half-century by Rilee Rossouw went in vain as Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) bowlers delivered a brilliant performance to bundle out Punjab Kings (PBKS) for just 181 runs and secure a 60-run win at Dharamsala on Thursday.

RCB is in the seventh spot with five wins and seven losses, with 10 points. PBKS is in ninth place, with four wins and eight losses, a total of eight points. Punjab is out of the tournament.

In the run-chase of 242 runs, Punjab Kings lost their opener Prabhsimran Singh early for just six runs in four balls to Swapnil Singh after he trapped him leg-before-wicket.

Rilee Rossoue was the next up on the crease and made pressure on bowlers right from ball one, smashing Swapnil for two fours on his first two balls.

Opener Jonny Bairstow and Rossouw eventually caught momentum and started to hit RCB bowlers all over the park.

Rossouw looted 18 runs from Mohammed Siraj's over number four, smashing a six and three fours.

Bairstow tried to end the powerplay on high, smashing Lockie Ferguson for two fours, but a diving catch by Faf Du Plessis ended his innings at 27 in 16 balls, with four boundaries and a six.

Rossouw and Shashank Singh continued their innings unfazed, with Rossouw being the key aggressor. Rossouw reached his second fifty in just 21 balls, with eight fours and two sixes.

However, the bowler Karn Sharma had a last laugh, removing Rossouw for 61 in 27 balls, with nine fours and three sixes.

RCB bowlers solidified their hold on the game, getting Jitesh Sharma (5) dismissed by Karn and Liam Livingstone dismissed by Swapnil for a duck. Half of the PBKS team was back in the hut for 126 runs in 11.2 overs.

Shashank tried to keep the run-rate going and his team's hopes alive. PBKS reached the 150-run mark in 13.3 overs. However, Shashank was run out by Virat for 37 in 19 balls, with four boundaries and two sixes. PBKS was 151/6 in 13.4 overs.

Siraj then soon helped RCB get the big wicket of Ashutosh Sharma, trapping him lbw for just eight runs.

Ferguson got Sam Curran cleaned up for 22in 16 balls, with two fours and Harshal was dismissed by Siraj for zero.

Siraj got his third wicket, removing Arshdeep for four runs, with a fine catch from Karn. RCB bundled out PBKS for 181 runs in 17 overs, winning by 60 runs.

Siraj (3/43) was the pick of the bowlers for RCB. Lockie (2/29), Swapnil (2/28) and Karn (2/36) also impressed with the ball.

Earlier, Virat Kohli's fiery 92-run knock powered Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) to 241/7.

The RCB batters displayed a stupendous performance in Dharamsala and gave a solid target in a must-win match in IPL 2024.

Kohli (92) and Faf du Plessis (9) opened for the visitors. Even though the skipper failed to make a mark in the game but Kohli did not make his absence felt on the crease.

The RCB openers could only make a partnership of 19 runs after Faf was dismissed by Vidhwath Kaverappa in the third over of the first inning.

Soon after the first dismissal, RCB lost Will Jacks (12) in the 5th over, when the visitors were at 43/2. Jacks slammed just one four and six.

However, Kohli played a 76-run knock partnership with Rajat Patidar (55) who was stupendous on the crease as he slammed 3 fours and 6 sixes during his time on the field.

Soon after replacing Patidar, Cameron Green (46) started hitting. The pair Kohli-Green played a 92-run partnership and helped RCB to cross the 200-run mark in the 18th over.

Harshal Patel was on fire in the final over the first inning as he dismissed Dinesh Karthik (18), Mahipal Lomror (0), and Cameron Green (46) all in one over. However, it was very late, as the RCB batters had already done the destruction and put 241/7.
