IPL 2022 Score Updates Between RCB vs PBKS, Highlights: PBKS bowlers jolted RCB with regular wickets and derailed their run-chase to register a 54-run win. Rajat Patidar and Glenn Maxwell kept the scoreboard ticking but both departed soon to give PBKS the upper-hand while Dinesh Karthik was also removed early. Earlier, Rishi Dhawan jolted RCB with two wickets in an over as he dismissed captain Faf Du Plessis and Mahipal Lomror in quick succession.

Glenn Maxwell broke the 60-run partnership by cleaning up Dhawan for 21 off 15 balls. Wanindu Hasaranga struck in his first over to send back countryman Bhanuka Rajapaksa.  Bairstow was eventually dismissed for 66 off 29 balls by Shahbaz Ahmed.
