RCB made it to the second qualifier after knocking the Rajasthan Royals out of the competition on Tuesday (20 May). Despite losing the two openers quickly, a brilliant partnership between AB de Villiers and Mandeep Singh helped their side to post 181.

In reply, the Royals lost wickets at regular intervals before being bowled out for 109 at the end of the 19th over. The latest victory has given Virat Kohli's side a chance to make it to the final later this weekend.
