T Natarajan, Umran Malik, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Marco Jansen have been outstanding with their bowling. They bundled out RCB for just 68 in the last game. Bhuvneshwar and Jansen have been brilliant in the power play, Natarajan too has done well in that phase. Umran Malik with his pace has been excellent in the middle-overs while Natarajan and Bhuvneshwar are handling the death overs with ease,
