The spinner then went to dismiss Kohli before Maxwell winded-up the proceedings with an undefeated 40 off 18 balls.
Before in the evening, Hardik Pandya led the side from front and bashed an unbeaten 62(47) as GT put up 168/5 after choosing to bat first.
Apart from Pandya, Rashid contributed with 19 runs off 6 deliveries, whilst David Miller scored 34(25). Josh Hazlewood grabbed 2 wickets from the RCB camp, whilst Wanindu Hasaranga and Maxwell fetched a wicket each.
