Teams:

Chennai Super Kings: MS Dhoni, Murali Vijay, Faff du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Albie Morkel, S Badrinath, R Ashwin, Doug Bollinger, Shadab Jakati

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Daniel Vettori, Chris Gayle, Cheteshwar Pujara, AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli, Saurabh Tiwary, Mayank Agarwal, Raju Bhatkal, Vinay Kumar, Zaheer Khan, Muthiah Muralitharan

Danny Morrison is sweating under the heat and has Chennai skipper MS Dhoni holding an umbrella for him. No such perquisites for Tom Moody.

Toss Vettori has won the toss and he has decided the Bangalore will bat first.

The Bangalore skipper says that the pitch will slow down in the second half. One change to his Bangalore line-up, Raju Bhatkal comes into the 11 in place of Harshal Patel.

MS Dhoni says it is all about playing as a team and to prove that point, he says that Chennai are going into the game with the same 11.

3.25 pm These two teams had last played in the last season's IPL final. Chennai Super Kings had run away easy winners but the season hasn't kicked off too well for them this time; they have lost two of their first three games. Bangalore have won and lost one apiece. Lots, therefore, to play for the two teams here!

Toss in 5.

This comes from M Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai and will see the hosts Chennai Super Kings take on Royal Challengers Bangalore. Kings XI Punjab will play Pune Warriors in the 8 pm game but that is for later. I am Suneer Chowdhary and will be your commentator for both matches.

2.6

Ashwin to Agarwal, 1 run, on-driven to Murali Vijay at deep square-leg, who was miked up and talking to the commentators. Doesn't affect his concentration and a single is all that they get.

5.2

Morkel to Agarwal, 1 wide, short ball tried by Morkel and it seemed like a good variation until the umpire decided it was too high. Wide called.

MA Agarwal c Bravo b Morkel 45 (23m 26b 5x4 3x6) SR: 173.07

They stopped to look at the no-ball but the bowler's foot was cutting the crease alright.

Bravo to Kohli, 1 run, down the leg-side and Kohli flicks it away to the fine-leg for a single.

9.5

Bravo to Kohli, no run, punched it back to the bowler for no run.

V Kohli    15* (17b 2x4)      DJ Bravo    2-0-12-0

10.2

Morkel to Kohli, 1 run, short of length and driven on the up by Kohli for a single to the sweeper fielder.

MS Dhoni comes up to the stumps.

11.3

Jakati to Kohli, 1 run, punched off the back-foot by Kohli for a single.

11.5

Jakati to Gayle, 1 run, pitched on the middle and Gayle drives it to long-on for a single.

11.6

Jakati to Kohli, 1 run, drives him to long-off and the batsmen stroll through for an easy single. Looking ominous for Chennai.

Jakati to Gayle, no run, flighted slightly and outside the off-stump, Gayle wanted to cut it away but goes to the fielder.

Jakati to Gayle, SIX, pitched right up to Gayle and he has smacked it over the long-on fielder. It was a decent idea, but it turned out to be a full-toss!

Jakati to Gayle, SIX, and again! Gone into the crowds in the deep square-leg region and that brings up his 50.

13.4

13.5

Jakati to Kohli, no run, reverse sweep attempted but can get only till the point fielder.

13.6

Jakati to Kohli, no run, goes down the track but yorks himself and gets nothing out of it. Kohli is frustrating himself here.

V Kohli    26* (30b 3x4)      SB Jakati    2-0-27-0
CH Gayle    54* (28b 1x4 5x6)      DJ Bravo    3-0-16-0

200 looks achievable and if Gayle bats through...

14.1

Bravo to Gayle, SIX, slower one and Gayle has tonked it into the roof. Or has it gone out of the stadium? Tom Moody says it should be worth 12. New box balls being called for I think.

14.2

Bravo to Gayle, 1 run, full-toss from Bravo and it is driven straight to long-on. It was whipped to the fielder and he struggled to get hold of it!

14.3

Bravo to Kohli, no run, outside the off-stump, pitched right up to the bat and Kohli misses getting any bat. Not only is Kohli struggling but he could end up frustrating Gayle, who looks murderous right now.

14.4

Bravo to Kohli, 1 run, drilled through the covers for a single.

third-man and fine-leg up. No fielders yet in the stands though.

14.5

14.5

Bravo to Gayle, 1 run, goes down the pitch and Bravo pitches it right up and outside the off-stump, can only manage to drive it long-on.

What's happened here? Kohli went for another of those big ones, missed it and both, the keeper and Kohli look at the leg-umpire. Leg-umpire calls it a dead ball for some reason.

14.6

Bravo to Kohli, FOUR, full-toss and Kohli has finally got in the middle of his bat to the fence. Bravo is not chuffed!

End of over 15 (14 runs) Royal Challengers Bangalore 149/1 (RR: 9.93)
V Kohli    31* (33b 4x4)      DJ Bravo    4-0-30-0

15.1

Ashwin to Gayle, 1 run, flighted up on the off-stump driven to the covers and the fielder throws it to Dhoni, who whips the bails away. Third-umpire called for but Kohli is just in.

Ashwin to Kohli, 1 run, comes down and plays it away to the leg-side for a run.

Ashwin to Gayle, 1 run, edge outside the off-stump and a single to the short third-man.

15.6

Ashwin to Kohli, 1 run, drives hard and back to the bowler, but only for a single.

V Kohli    37* (36b 5x4)      R Ashwin    4-0-46-0
CH Gayle    68* (34b 2x4 6x6)      DJ Bravo    4-0-30-0

Ashwin's gone for 46 in his four, but he is the only bowler who was probably not plundered by Gayle. It was Mayank Agarwal who did all the damage to his figures.

Look who's here, Ravindra Jadeja will bowl his first over!

16.1

Jadeja to Kohli, 1 run, full-toss on the legs and a single for Kohli.

16.2

Jadeja to Gayle, OUT, finally gone and it is Jadeja who picks up the wicket of Gayle! Outside the off-stump and pitched right up, and Gayle went for the slash, but only managed to slice it away. Bravo caught hold of that one easily.

CH Gayle c Bravo b Jadeja 68 (80m 35b 2x4 6x6) SR: 194.28

Wondering why Jadeja did not bowl earlier? I am too.

16.3

Jadeja to Kohli, 1 wide, down the leg-side and it is a wide.

16.3

Jadeja to Kohli, 2 runs, full-toss and played away to the right of long-on for a couple of runs.

Jadeja to Kohli, 1 run, inside out shot from Kohli, who isn't getting his timing right. Goes to long-off for a single.

16.6

Jadeja to de Villiers, 1 wide, down the leg-side, wanted to sweep it away but missed. Umpires calls it a wide.

16.6

Jadeja to de Villiers, FOUR, inside-out and the gap between sweeper and long-off is split by AB de Villiers. Four off the very first ball!

End of over 17 (12 runs) Royal Challengers Bangalore 173/2 (RR: 10.17)
AB de Villiers    4* (1b 1x4)      RA Jadeja    1-0-10-1

Morkel to Tiwary, 1 run, slower again and shorter again! Tiwary pulls it away to mid-wicket for a single.

17.5

Morkel to Kohli, 2 runs, goes down the track and then slaps it to deep square-leg for a couple. Kohli has brought up his 50 and the celebration is muted and exhausted!

17.6

Morkel to Kohli, 1 wide, slower one, too many of them in this spell for Morkel and he has stylishly flicked it away for a six!

17.6

Morkel to Kohli, SIX

End of over 18 (17 runs) Royal Challengers Bangalore 190/3 (RR: 10.55)

     RA Jadeja    2-0-18-2
V Kohli    57* (45b 5x4 2x6)      JA Morkel    4-0-37-2

Six more balls and Kohli is definitely looking exhausted there. Can he get a few off the middle? Bhatkal's the non-striker.

19.1

Bollinger to Kohli, OUT, yep, the strength had gone from his arms and that is spooned away to the long-on fielder where du Plessis takes an excellent catch over his head.

V Kohli c du Plessis b Bollinger 57 (32m 46b 5x4 2x6) SR: 123.91

19.2

Bollinger to Pujara, OUT, bowled him! Bollinger has another one and is on a hat-trick. On the middle stump and Pujara went for a slog over mid-wicket. He missed and the result is a flat stump.

19.3

Bollinger to Vettori, 1 run, full-toss swung away to square-leg for a single.

19.4

Bollinger to Bhatkal, OUT, run-out! Outside the off-stump and it is dabbed away, where Bolliner runs, picks up and sees that Vettori is way outside the crease. He rolls it down the ground much like Trevor Chappell's infamous underarm ball and hits the stump!

Bollinger to Vinay Kumar, SIX, short ball and it has been pulled away by Vinay Kumar for a six! End of an excellent over spoiled by that shot!

In the end, Royal Challengers Bangalore have managed to get to 205 in their 20 overs, which is this IPL's highest total. Mayank Agarwal laid the foundation, Chris Gayle built on it well and Kohli assisted him in getting Bangalore to 200.
