Royal Challengers Bengaluru lost their openers Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis early in the tough chase against Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens on Sunday. Kohli kicked off RCB's innings by smashing two big sixes but was stunned by Harshit Rana's bouncer which triggered a big controversy at Eden Gardens.

Harshit's slow full-toss delivery came as a surprise for Virat who tried to defend it but found the bowler. The umpire went for a review and the replay found Virat out of the batting crease and DRS trajectory showed a fair delivery below the waistline. 

But the third umpire's decision triggered Kohli who exchanged angry words with on-field umpires Vinod Seshan and Akshay Totre. Kohli also slammed his gloves on his bat on his way back to the pavilion and thrashed the dustbin near RCB's camp. 

After Kohli's early dismissal, RCB also lost skipper Faf du Plessis in the powerplay overs. But Rajat Patidar and Will Jacks kept Bengaluru alive in the game with a stunning 102-run partnership for the third wicket.

Both Jacks and Patidar registered quickfire fifties to our Bengaluru in the driving seat but Andre Russell bowled the match-defining 12th over to dismiss both settled batters. Bengaluru witnessed another collapse under the pressure of a big target but Dinesh Karthik and Karn Sharma took the game to the wire.

Chasing 21 runs in the last over, Karn smashed three sixes off Mitchell Starc but the latter managed to defend three runs on the last two deliveries to boost Kolkata to a thrilling one-run win at Eden Gardens. 

Royal Challengers Bengaluru Playing XI: Faf du Plessis (c), Virat Kohli, Will Jacks, Rajat Patidar, Cameron Green, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Mahipal Lomror, Karn Sharma, Lockie Ferguson, Yash Dayal, Mohammed Siraj.

Kolkata Knight Riders Playing XI: Philip Salt (wk), Sunil Narine, Angkrish Raghuvanshi, Shreyas Iyer (c), Venkatesh Iyer, Andre Russell, Rinku Singh, Ramandeep Singh, Mitchell Starc, Varun Chakaravarthy, Harshit Rana.
