KKR were playing their first game at home after a gap of four years, made it a memorable one by putting up a spirited effort and registered a turn-around victory after being pushed to the walls.
Shardul Thakur (68 off 29 balls) and opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz (57 off 44 balls) cracked half-centuries while Rinku Singh scored a 33-ball 46 as the hosts made a fine recovery from 89 for five to post 204 for seven after being put to bat first.
Later, mystery leg-spinner Varun Chakravarthy (4/15) and young Suyash Sharma (3/30) did the maximum damage as KKR dismissed RCB for 123 in 17.4 overs. Sunil Narine (2/16) was again at his miserly best as nine wickets were taken by tweakers.
For RCB, left-arm pacer David Willey and leg-spinner Karn Sharma took two wickets each.
