1.3

Morris to Gayle, SIX, mis-hit for six. Gayle throws his arms at a length ball outside off, and sends this off the outside half of the toe end over point. Lands on the rope on the full

Royal Challengers Bangalore 15/0   CH Gayle 8* (4b 1x6)   CH Morris 0.3-0-9-0

2.6

Ashwin to Kohli, SIX, he has picked the carrom ball and gone with the turn. Charges at him again, has made room too, and goes inside-out well over long-off

Royal Challengers Bangalore 33/0   V Kohli 21* (12b 3x4 1x6)   R Ashwin 2-0-21-0

3.6

Morris to Kohli, SIX, and Kohli goes inside-out again. This is a half-volley and he sends it flying over mid-off for a flat six

Royal Challengers Bangalore 46/0   V Kohli 33* (17b 4x4 2x6)   CH Morris 2-0-22-0

4.4

Holder to Gayle, SIX, slower short ball, but it doesn't quite stick into the surface. Cannon fodder for Gayle who opens up the front leg and pulls it over deep midwicket

Royal Challengers Bangalore 54/0   CH Gayle 16* (10b 2x6)   JO Holder 0.4-0-8-0

4.5

Holder to Gayle, SIX, flicked away for six. On a length, on the pads, and he has nonchalantly sent this over deep midwicket. Almost into the second tier. Crowd going crazy

Royal Challengers Bangalore 60/0   CH Gayle 22* (11b 3x6)   JO Holder 0.5-0-14-0

4.6

Holder to Gayle, SIX, make it three. Jamaican laying into the Bajan. Attempted bouncer but not much sting behind it, and Gayle has deposited this in the same general area as the previous two

Royal Challengers Bangalore 66/0   CH Gayle 28* (12b 4x6)   JO Holder 1-0-20-0

7.3

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

Royal Challengers Bangalore 96/2   V Kohli 46* (26b 5x4 3x6)   DJ Bravo 1.3-0-16-1

7.5

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

Royal Challengers Bangalore 102/2   V Kohli 52* (28b 5x4 4x6)   DJ Bravo 1.5-0-22-1
