View dismissal V Kohli* c Rahane b Perera 80 85 63 7 2 126.98
19.3 no control over that pull, it was the slower one, the bat face turned in his hand as he made contact, the man at deep midwicket didn't have to move an inch. Kohli slaps the bat on his thigh pad as he walks off. He's far from happy with the shot, by the looks of it 182/2
View dismissal KL Rahul c Sharma b Perera 7 15 10 1 0 70.00
3.4 third time lucky for the Supergiants. Rahul plays an ugly hoick. It was a full ball, which he tried to loft over mid-on, but the bat and feet were in no position as the ball flies off a thick outside edge to Ishant, who didn't have to move an inch at third man 27/1
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Ankit Sharma b Perera 83 68 46 6 4 180.43
19.4 slower leg-cutter outside off, ABD looked to go over long-on, gets a top edge to a nervous Ankit Sharma, who just about managed to get his hands around that one. He was off balance when the ball lodged in his hands. 182/3

View dismissal AM Rahane st †Rahul b Shamsi 60 76 46 8 0 130.43
14.4 there's the wicket. Beautifully done. This one was a slider that went past Rahane's wild swing, didn't get to the pitch of the ball and Rahul whipped the balls off in a jiffy. Shamsi leaps high and punches the air in delight. Not a bad first wicket to have in the IPL, is it? RCB call the celebration the 'Busdriver dance'. Wonder what that is all about 109/3
View dismissal F du Plessis c Patel b Richardson 2 7 3 0 0 66.66
1.4 there's the early wicket for RCB, and Kohli is pumped. Not quite there for Faf to hit through the line, he stepped out to go over mid-off, but the ball got big on him and Patel took an easy catch. 12/1
KP Pietersen retired hurt 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
1.5 from Richardson, what has KP done here? Has he hurt his ankle? He's motionless at the moment. Coming back to the ball, it was short outside off, he was on his toes to defend. But something about it didn't look right. KP took off for a single, but looked like he hurt his calf muscle as he turned to get back into the crease. Oh dear. he's hobbling off the field. Kohli has a few comforting words to KP. He seems to be in a lot of pain. 12/1
View dismissal SPD Smith run out (Kohli) 4 3 3 1 0 133.33
2.3 from Patel, it's all happening here. Smith is foxed by the slower one and was hit on the pad, the vociferous appeal seemed to have distracted him as he took a few paces outside the crease. Virat Kohli coming in front point saw that, picked up the deflection and hit the stumps direct at the striker's end. Smith, turned late and slipped which cost him a split-second, and was a couple of inches short of the crease when the bails were dislodged 18/2
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c de Villiers b Patel 41 70 38 3 0 107.89
15.5 touch-and-go stuff by AB de Villiers, but that's a sensational catch at long-off. This was floated full outside off, Dhoni drilled it, the ball flew off the bat, but it didn't matter because de Villiers was lurking around there. The advertising triangle behind him was no more than a couple of centimetres away. De Villiers was hardly bothered by that though, in complete control right throughout. 120/4
View dismissal NLTC Perera c Mandeep Singh b Watson 34 23 13 3 3 261.53
18.3 the Thisara party is over, Watson has delivered under pressure. Fires it full and wide outside off, he got it low on the bat and it lobbed straight to Mandeep at cover. Watson lets out a roar, and that's understandable. It got a little too close for comfort, but what a knock! 164/5
View dismissal R Bhatia c Watson b Richardson 21 20 11 1 1 190.90
19.3 the slower bouncer has done the trick. Bhatia fetched the pull from outside off, didn't connect well as the ball didn't arrive, too early into the stroke as it lobbed to Watson at square leg. Plucky knock but had a little too much to do in the end 169/7
View dismissal R Ashwin c Patel b Watson 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
18.5 intention was right, but the execution came a cropper. Ashwin lined himself for the slog, Watson helped him by bowling short of length on off, he went through with the stroke, got it off the middle. The only issue was it was right down Harshal Patel's throat at deep midwicket 165/6
Ankit Sharma not out 3 7 3 0 0 100.00
View dismissal M Ashwin c de Villiers b Richardson 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
19.4 how easy has AB de Villiers made that look? Ashwin slapped that over the infield, ABD was back-pedalling from mid-off, realised he was going nowhere, so he twirled and twisted around to set himself up and then leaped to catch the ball with his palms facing skywards. Both feet were off the ground when he took the catch. Stunning 169/8
