Rajasthan Royals backed by a subline 92 not out off 45 balls by Sanju Samson defeated batting power-house Royal Challengers Bangalore by 19 runs in Bengaluru.

Batting first, RR made 217 for 4 and in reply RCB scored 198 for 6.

RCB skipper Virat Kohli smashed his fastest IPL fifty.

Notably, it was also the first time a team had successfully defended a total of 10 full games this season.

Royals had done it once previously as well, in a rain-shortened game against Delhi Daredevils.

On a familiar hit-through-the line Chinnaswamy pitch, Royals pillaged 88 runs in the last five overs of their innings - the joint second highest in the IPL. Samson's contributed 58 to that tally.
