After the disappointments of IPL 2017 and IPL 2018, the team management of RCB and captain Virat Kohli had hoped for a new dawn in 2019 edition of the Indian T20 league. The West Indian Shimron Hetmyer could manage to add only 9 runs before he was stumped by Bairstow off Nabi coming down the ground.

"Probably one of our worst losses ever". Literally, nothing I can explain. They showed that they are a champion side.

Put into bat, SRH openers Bairstow and Warner put on a show for their raucous home fans, flaying a hapless RCB bowling attack to all parts of the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium as they closed their innings on 231-2, their highest total in the VIVO IPL, before all-rounder Mohammad Nabi, who replaced the injured Kane Williamson, collected 4-11 as RCB were bowled out for 113 in 19.5 overs. We could have tried a few different things, like taking pace off the ball.

With a very big target to eclipse, RCB needed a rollicking start but the visitors' chase never got going as they kept on losing wickets to be bundled out for 113 in 19.5 overs. "So credit to both of them, they were world class today and they definitely deserved to be on the winning side".

"We thought about that initially as well (opening the batting)". We just need our players to put up a better challenge up front.

Backstrom gave the Capitals a 1-0 lead at 7:24 of the first period with a one-timer from of the slot off a pass from Wilson. At 33 years old, Ovechkin is just the fourth player to score at least 50 goals at this age or older.

Jonny Bairstow, David Warner became only the second pair of batsmen to score hundreds in the same IPL game. They next play Rajasthan at Jaipur on April 2. We need to bring our A-game, like we did against Mumbai and play with that kind of intensity.

"If we go through the motions, if we do the regular basic stuff, then things are going to keep going away from us. If we want to gain some momentum we need to start well, and probably next game should be that game for us".

Bairstow was out to spinner Yuzvendra Chahal for 114, his 56-ball knock laced with 12 fours and seven sixes to be named the man of the match. Bowlers across all teams might not be faulted if they start wondering whether the one-year ban has made Warner more unsafe, given the way he has played in the first three games.

The post-match presentation interview were interrupted as it began to pour heavily, just in time.

Swing bowler Sandeep Sharma built on the work done by stand-in captain Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Nabi, and built pressure on RCB captain Virat Kohli to induce him into a shot that was caught neatly by Warner at short cover. The Englishman had already announced his arrival in his first ever season in the competition, and timed the ball from the outset.
