And it's all over for RCB 💔❤‍🩹💙👑🌋🪸💨

As he wrapped up the match with his fourth hundred of the edition, he shook hands with Virat Kohli, who had done the four-century feat in 2016, and proceeded to do the same with rest of RCB. Then, at the end, Butler turned and shouted ‘Virat” who swung back, and Butler would throw his hands around Kohli’s shoulder and say something. A smile appeared in Kohli’s tired face. Couple of days ago, R Ashwin had spoken about how the late Shane Warne led team had won the first edition and “there is something special” in the air this time around. We shall know on Sunday if Warne’s team can do it again in his memory. Placards of Warne bobbed around the stadium as Rajasthan hunted down a paltry total without much fuss. RCB were deflated as soon as Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal exploded away in the Powerplay and even when he caught Jaiswal in the fifth over, Kohli showed no emotions. He would have fist-pumped and roared but by then, pretty early in the piece, he must have known it was all over. And it was.
