Royal Challengers Bangalore will need to do create history to qualify for playoffs by 13 or fewer points which has never happened in the IPL previously. Even for that, they need to win all their remaining 4 games as their loss against Rising Pune Supergiant put their chances of a shot at the championship in tatters.

Virat Kohli alone scored 55 out of RCB’s total of 96/9 after they restricted the hosts to just 157/3, a below par total at Pune. Here are all the records and statistical achievements from the game.
