The medium pacer made great use of the short delivery as he dismissed both the batters by pitching the ball short.
Both left handers miscued the pull shot as the ball grew big on them as they attempted to pull their way out of trouble.
While Iyer checked his shot and got a leading edge, Rana went through with his but the ball didn’t travel far enough.
RCB captain Faf du Plessis had decided to field first after winning the toss.
