Will Jacks started the proceedings with the ball for RCB and he gave away 7 runs off the first over and at that the hosts didn't have an idea about what was coming their way. Travis Head just smashed the bowlers right, left and center to hit his maiden IPL century. There was no stopping for Head and Abhishek Sharma in the powerplay as SRH posted 76 without losing any wickets. However, it was only a trailer as they produced box-office stuff after the powerplay as Head kept clearing the boundary rope at will and brought up his century off 39 balls - fourth fastest in tournament history.

Abhishek, who looked fluent, failed to convert the start into a big score and was dismissed for 34 by Reece Topley. The SRH openers shared an incredible 108-run stand for the opening wicket. However, SRH made the bold move to promote Heinrich Klaasen up in the order at number 3 which completely blew away the RCB bowlers.

Head scored 102 runs off 41 balls as his knock was embellished with 9 fours and eight sixes. He was dismissed right after scoring his century in search of another boundary.

Meanwhile, Klaasen continued to get going as he decided to deal in more sixes than four as he slammed 7 maximums and 2 fours during his 67-run knock.
