Shahrukh Khan, along with Sai Sudharsan, steadied the innings and thwarted RCB’s spinners, unleashing a flurry of boundaries in the middle overs. The turning point came when RCB’s Mohammed Siraj unleashed a breathtaking reverse-swinging yorker to dismiss Shahrukh Khan.

However, Sai Sudharsan continued his onslaught, while David Miller attempted to accelerate but fell short. Despite the challenging conditions, GT managed to reach the imposing total of 200, setting a daunting target for RCB on a pitch expected to remain consistent throughout the match.
