“My plan was simple. I was looking to bowl yorkers as long as I could execute it. We saw in the first innings that the yorkers which were executed properly were difficult to get away so I was just looking to execute my yorkers. When I was traded to RCB, Virat Kohli and the management told me that I would be bowling in the middle and death overs. After that, I started working on my yorkers and I brought that confidence into games,” Harshal told teammate Mohammed Siraj in a video posted on the official website of IPL.

Harshal gave in 37 runs taking 2 wickets from his four overs spell. He took the wickets of Prithvi Shaw and Marcus Stoinis.
