3.30 pm Kohli wins the toss and RCB will bowl

Kohli says RCB want to make use of some grass on the pitch and feels it will settle down later in the evening. KL Rahul, the young Karnataka batsman, comes in for left-arm spinner Murali Kartik, indicating how Kohli expects the pitch to play

Two, in fact, three changes for KKR. Pradeep Sangwan is in for Laxmi Ratan Shukla. Brett Lee makes way for Ryan McLaren. Indian fast bowler in for Indian allrounder, overseas fast bowler out for overseas allrounder. And Balaji takes his place back from Shami Ahmed

Matt: "Why, why why is BMac not playing? I thought KKR had batting issues..."

Siddarth: "So now we have the bowling mentor(lee) sitting out with his disciples playing.. see the IPL can do strange things :)"

3.15 pm Hello, hello, another double header today, the first one in Bangalore, the second in Pune.

RCB's season so far - a close win, a close defeat, and a thrashing of Sunrisers. KKR's season so far - a comprehensive win followed by a comprehensive defeat. Here's what Gautam Gambhir has to say. Also here is that keen blogger Ryan ten Doeschate on how the KKR support staff get the side through the maddening schedule of the IPL.

Pariksheet: "Going by the law of average, Virat Kohli won't be among the runs today. That leaves Gayle to be the obvious choice for my Fantasy team captain."

Ahmad: "Ryan ten Doeschate is paying the price of not being a star or from a leading test playing nation. About time he gets a go in this IPL , KKR dont want to be in a position , later in the tournament , where they require players who have only been warming benches."


-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Singh to Sangwan, FOUR, a high full toss outside off, he swings hard, and a thick edge beats the keeper fine on the off side

KKR were 95 for 2 in the 13th over when Yusuf Pathan got out. And they kept losing wickets after that

Singh: "lets be fair to KKR here, 95/2 in 13 overs and ending at 154 is Okay to me. Someone from the top order had to fire to get a bigger score and noone did so, they have ended up at a reasonably decent score of 154.. I dont see the fuss here (comments like Pack of cards). KKR can win from here."

sammydude: "A pack of cards will fall much slower than the KKR batsmen!"

Shreesha Bhat: "Dinesh Karthik and Vinay Kumar... bet nobody, absolutely nobody expected them both to be holding the orange and purple caps at any stage of IPL"

End of over 20 (6 runs) Kolkata Knight Riders 154/8
PJ Sangwan    4* (2b 1x4)      RP Singh    4-0-27-3
SP Narine    1* (1b)      R Vinay Kumar    4-0-36-2
