Royal Challengers Bengaluru suffered its seventh defeat of IPL 2024 when they lost a nail-biting encounter to Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens. After being put into bat, KKR scored 222-6 in 20 overs. They started blazingly as they have done throughout the tournament, making full use of powerplay restrictions.

Phil Salt smashed a 14-ball-48 before holing out in the deep. Thanks to a steady half-century from captain Shreyas Iyer and important contributions from KKR's finishers Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, and Ramandeep Singh, they put up an above par total on the board.

In reply, RCB lost Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis cheaply, but Will Jacks and Rajat Patidar put on a blistering partnership. At one time, RCB even looked favorites but they lost 4 wickets for 18 runs. In the end, Dinesh Karthik and Karn Sharma tried their best but they fell short by 1 run.

In a video clip that has gone viral on social media, KKR allrounder Venkatesh Iyer can be seen mocking RCB's bowling lineup.

"RCB is a dangerous side currently. They have a very good bowling attack (laughs)," Venkatesh Iyer said.

Venkatesh Iyer had a disappointing match as he was dismissed for 16 runs from 8 balls. He hit three fours during his little knock. His bowling has been limited ever since the impact player rule has been introduced.
