Putting on 59 runs in seven overs for the first wicket with Sunil Narine, the Aussie ensured his side got the start, laying the platform for a chase of 175 runs. (RCB vs KKR IPL 2018 SCORES)

Lynn had earlier scored 74 against Kings XI Punjab, a match that KKR lost. He also had a couple of other good innings that he, however, had failed to convert into fifties.

While both Narine first and Uthappa later went after the bowlers, trying to hit over the top and playing cameos, Lynn held one end up after starting on an aggressive note, eventually ending up scoring at over a run-a-ball though with six fours and a six at the time of crossing the 50-run mark.
