Indian Premier League, 70th match: Royal Challengers Bangalore v Chennai Super Kings at Bangalore, May 18, 2013
Royal Challengers Bangalore won by 24 runs
18 May 2013 - night match (20-over match)

Bravo to Kohli, 1 run, dropped. Length ball, angling away, toe-ended on the drive. Dhoni's feet have hardly moved, and he doesn't reach the ball well. Easy chance


Bravo to Gayle, OUT, Hussey doesn't drop. This was short of a length and wide, and Gayle smashed this in front of square. It's going at the rate of knots, but Hussey is good enough at extra cover

CH Gayle c Hussey b Bravo 28 (23m 13b 0x4 4x6) SR: 215.38


Bravo to de Villiers, FOUR, de Villiers moves across, then comes back into his original position, and he drives a length ball between extra cover and cover


Bravo to de Villiers, 1 run, slower ball wide outside off, de Villiers is early into his slog sweep, and toe-ends this towards third man


Bravo to Kohli, FOUR, sees Kohli charging, digs in a bouncer, Kohli swings eyes closed, gets a top edge, which goes fine of third man


Bravo to Kohli, no run, down the wicket again, this time drives a shortish delivery straight to cover-point

Royal Challengers Bangalore 76/1   DJ Bravo 1-0-10-1

Bravo to Kohli, no run, bowls quick, shortish, angled across. Beats Kohli, who is charging at him


Bravo to Kohli, no run, and again. That angle is working. Kohli looks to open up the leg-side field this time, but is beaten by a short delivery angling across


Bravo to Kohli, SIX, Kohli makes the adjustment. He has been beaten twice going across the line so he waits for this to angle away, gets under it, and drives it over mid-off for a flat six


Bravo to Kohli, no run, and Bravo beats him again. He is going across him, bowling short. Kohli tries to drive. Hang on, there is a sound as the ball passes the bat. Bravo appeals, Dhoni doesn't. Not given


Bravo to Kohli, SIX, and this time Bravo bowls full. Not a yorker. Just full. Easy to get under it. Kohli sends it flying over deep midwicket. That's fifty for Kohli


Bravo to Kohli, FOUR, another length ball, and this time Kohli hasn't got all of it, but enough to send it wide of long-on for four

Royal Challengers Bangalore 106/2   DJ Bravo 2-0-26-1
