But, Umesh Yadav got rid of the Agarwal.

Well, the balling strategy of the Kohli's team was quite good.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Kings XI Punjab by four wickets in their first home game and got their first win of IPL 2018.

Royal Challengers Bangalore will face an upbeat Kings XI Punjab in their second encounter of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018.

Brief scores: KXIP 155 in 19.2 overs (Rahul 47, Ashwin 33, Umesh 3/23, Washington 2/22, Khejroliya 2/33, Woakes 2/36) lost to RCB 159/6 in 19.3 overs (De Villiers 57, De Kock 45, Ashwin 2/30).

This was after the Bangalore bowlers, led by pacer Umesh Yafav - who took three wickets in an over - had shot out Punjab for 155 after Kohli opted to field first.

Kings XI Punjab, on the other hand, has laid out their template for this season: using spin at various points of an innings to stifle opponents and staying aggressive with the bat. Yuzvendra Chahal got a single wicket but he looked costly in this game. Had it not been for a 10-run win over Delhi Daredevils in their rain-curtailed second game, Rajasthan would have little to cheer about their return after two years.

Also, considering the relative ease with which finger spinners are handled in modern-day T20 cricket - Kings XI have two in R Ashwin and Axar Patel - and with death-overs specialist Andrew Tye being taken for 38 runs in four overs, there aren't many fall-back options. The Karnataka batsman will look to carry on the momentum on his home ground. Mandeep played an imperative knock of 37 towards the end of the game to ensure RCB had a good 177 on board against KKR at the Eden Gardens.

Aaron Finch, who was unavailable for the last match, also may get a chance.

David Miller and Marcus Stoinis add depth to KXIP batting order and the duo will be relied upon once again.

Punjab surprisingly dropped big-hitting West Indian Chris Gayle in the last game but he could open the innings as he knows the conditions well, the venue where he smashed an incredible 175 in the 2013 edition.

The match started as RCB won the toss and chose to bowl first.

RCB captain Virat Kohli and KXIP captain Ravichandran Ashwin. Bangalore's spinners proved expensive, going for 41 runs in three of the six Power Play overs against Kolkata.

Umesh Yadav was the India spearhead in the 2016-17 home Test series run, but has fallen behind as Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and all-rounder Hardik Pandya have come up along side Mohammed Shami. If someone hits you straight for six, it's fine by me.' Since our camp started, that is what we have worked on.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals match will be streamed live on Hotstar.
