The skipper needed just two runs when he came out to open the innings for his team.
Earlier, RCB won the toss and elected to bowl first against KXIP in their second game, being played at Dubai International Stadium.
Virat Kohli-led side won their first encounter against Sunrisers Hyderabad by 10 runs while KXIP lost the thrilling Super Over finish against Delhi Capitals on Sunday.
Rahul made two changes in the team as they brought in Jimmy Neesham and M Ashwin in place of Krishnappa Gowtham and Chris Jordan. On the other hand, Kohli retained his winning combination and opted for the same unit that played the last game.
