Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) ended their three-match losing run as they defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by 27 runs in an Indian Premier League (IPL) game at the Chinnaswamy stadium here on Sunday. The Jamaican became the first player to complete ten thousand runs in T20 cricket when he reached the score of three in the fourth over.

The first 10 overs produced 66 runs for RCB with 95 required off the last 10 overs.

Ravindra Jadeja may have picked up a wicket in two games in IPL 2017 but his performance will be crucial against RCB. Having been dropped in favor of Munaf Patel due to the nature of surface at the Wankhede, don't be surprised if the experienced left-arm spinner makes it back into the side.

Jadeja, while going for 21 runs in his opening over, nearly got rid of Gayle, thanks to a sensational diving catch by McCullum on the boundary line in the eighth over.

Towards the end, Jadhav and Head showed no mercy on the bowlers, dispatching them out of the park at will as the visitors milked 35 runs from the final two overs.

Kohli also impressed with the willow as he struck a six and seven boundaries in his entertaining 50-ball knock.

The Jamaican brought up his fifty, his first this season, with a huge six in the tenth over. He hit two fours and as many sixes to quickly get to 23 off 7 balls, before a poor shot off Chahal's bowling brought his downfall.

Rahane hit a flurry of boundaries off the pacers Adam Milne (2/27) and Watson before a googly from Samuel Badree cleaned him up.

Shardul dealt a double double blow to RCB, dismissing dangerous-looking pair of Pawan Negi (11 off seven) and Stuart Binny (18 off eight), to plunge the hosts to 125/7 in 18 overs.

For GL, New Zealander Brendon McCullum top scored with 72 runs off just 44 balls. When Gayle and De Villiers are in full flow, it is hard to stop them and the Gujarat Lions bowlers struggle to find answers to curtail the fours and sixes.

On the other hand, the Gujarat Lions are set to welcome Aaron Finch back into their team, after the Aussie batter had to sit out of their previous game against Mumbai Indians after his kit-bag got misplaced.

RCB bowlers operated with discipline, giving no room for the batsmen. Negi wasn't afraid to toss the ball up, extracted turn off the surface, and finished with figures of 1-21.

With Gujarat reduced to 103/3 midway through the innings, the home crowd expected an in-form Dinesh Karthik (1) to support McCullum, who at the other end raced to his half century off 30 just balls.
