For the first time ever, Royal Challengers Bangalore clinched victory in the first three matches of an IPL season when they registered a dominant 38-run win over Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Match 10 of IPL 2021. With the win over Eoin Morgan's men, RCB remain the only unbeaten team this season and retain the top spot in the points table.

Knocks from Glenn Maxwell (78) and AB de Villiers (76*) propelled RCB to 204-4 from 20 overs. In reply, Harshal Patel (2/17) proved crucial in the death overs yet again, while Kyle Jamieson (3/41) and Yuzvendra Chahal (2/34) also did wonders with the ball.

The second match of the double-header between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) is currently underway at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
