The Du Plessis-led side has played 7 matches so far and has only managed a solitary win in them, facing a loss in their six other fixtures. In their most recent fixture against Sunrisers hyderabad (SRH), Bengaluru conceded the highest team total ever in the history of the tournament as the Orange army piled on a mountain of runs, posting 287/3. In response, even though RCB posted 262/7- the highest total chasing in a t20, they fell short by 25 runs.
