The RCB chase began on a typical note with a flurry of boundaries off Tillkaratne Dilshan's bat while the other opener Chris Gayle barely got a look in. The pair put on 38 runs in four overs.
Skipper Harbhajan Singh opted to bowl Lasith Malinga a third over and the move paid off as the Sri Lankan ace knocked back Dilshan's off-stump to draw first blood. Harbhajan brought himself on for the next over and trapped a tentative Gayle in front.
