Pepsi Indian Premier League, 24th match: Royal Challengers Bangalore v Sunrisers Hyderabad at Bengaluru, May 4, 2014
Royal Challengers Bangalore won by 4 wickets
4 May 2014 - night match (20-over match)

Finch will take strike for Sunrisers. Dhawan at the other end. Starc with the new ball

Kohli wins the toss and RCB will bowl

Two changes for RCB. Rilee Rossouw, the South African batsman, will make his IPL debut in place of Albie Morkel and Harshal Patel is in for Yogesh Takawale

Kohli: "We love to chase on the this ground. Small field, we know what to do here, we have played here before."

Dhawan would have fielded first as well because of the small outfield. He is expecting some swing and bounce for the fast bowlers. Ishant Sharma comes in for Amit Mishra. The legspinner has had a nightmarish IPL this time with an economy-rate of 10.30. S Rajesh has all the numbers.

Venkat Sravanth: "@Madhu.. But do you seriously reckon picking Ishant is an assurance on a small ground?? I would rather go with Prashanth's point."

Rana Waleed: "Virat Kohli wins the toss and decided to chase. Very obvious. It is as obvious as telling that we are humans."

Aman Parikh: "RCB going with 5 genuine bowlers. That's what i'm talking about This is gonna be the way forward for RCB :)"

Prashanth: "I am surprised to see SRH not opting for Parvez Rasool inspite of RCB playing four left-hand batsmen in their top six. Gayle and Yuvraj are well known for their struggles against offspin bowling."

madhu: "It's very good decision to bring Ishant in place of Mishra considering small ground and power-hitters of spin in RCB (Gayle and Yuvraj )"

7.10pm First match of the IPL season coming up in Bangalore, with the hosts taking on Sunrisers. With scores of 70 and 124 in their last two games in the UAE, Royal Challengers will be looking to the Chinnaswamy to produce plenty more runs

Complete the sequence: Garry Sobers, Ravi Shastri, Herschelle Gibbs and _________. Think you have all the answers? We have the questions. Play CricIQ now.

Starc to Finch, 1 run, straightening on middle on a full length, nudged square on the leg side


Starc to Dhawan, no run, just back of a length, 143 kph, and it does not carry to the keeper even as Dhawan lets it go outside off


Starc to Dhawan, no run, pitches it up to end the over, bang on off stump, Dhawan stays in the crease and guides it to point

Dhawal Atrey: "Has chasing become default mentality of Indian players???..both wanted to field first..."

    • S Dhawan 1 (3b)
    • AJ Finch 2 (3b)
    • MA Starc 1-0-3-0

Dinda to Finch, 1 run, Dinda starts right on target too, with a pitched up ball holding its line on off stump, is pushed to the off side, AB runs across from extra cover and dives forward to try and lob the ball at the non-striker's end, but only succeeds in parrying it to mid off, Kohli runs after it to cut off the chance of another run

Starc to Finch, OUT, Starc bounces out Finch, a 140 kph lifter into the body, Finch tries to gather himself into playing a hook, but it rises up too fast, and he's in no position to play the shot, he is hopping in the air, trying to half-fend, half-hook, and only ends up looping it to the keeper

    • AB Dinda 1-0-12-0

Arsalan: "Agree with Prashant. Playing Ishant on a small ground against such high quality stroke makers as those of RCB is probably even worse than playing an out of form Mishra. Parvez Rasool would have given the team a bit of variety at the same time adding some depth to their misfiring middle-order!"

Rahul is having a change of bats

    • AB Dinda 2-0-21-1
    • MA Starc 2-0-8-1

Warner is in

samarth : "Bizzare tactics by SRH. Warner is at his best while opening the innings. Not only he doesn't open but KL Rahul is out at 3! Selfish by Dhawan really. Given his ordinary form he should move down at 3 and allow Warner and Finch to open. "

HV Patel to Dhawan, 1 run, it is down the leg side but Dhawan does not get enough bat on it and cannot tuck wide enough of fine leg


HV Patel to Warner, 1 run, turned past Gayle at midwicket and wide of mid on for a single

Kuldeep: "@samarth: Actually it is the right tactic by Dhawan since he is not in form, not a case of him being selfish. The idea of having Warner at 4 is to strengthen the middle order. An out-of-form Dhawan would only weaken it. Just imagine if your best two batsman are the openers, once they get out, your middle order would look as thin as an aluminium foil!!!"


HV Patel to Dhawan, 1 wide, this should have gone too, back of a length and well down the leg side, but Dhawan cannot connect


HV Patel to Dhawan, 1 run, short of a length and bouncing on the left-hander, dropped softly and square on off for one

    • DA Warner 16 (14b 2x4)
    • HV Patel 2-0-15-0
    • YS Chahal 1-0-6-0

Ram: "Guys, we cannot really criticize every decision of a captain just because it is not working out but somehow I cannot imagine Dhawan as a captain :P"

Abhishek: "The whole team looks unsettled. Instead of having both Finch and Warner, they should drop one of them and give a chance to Moises Henriques. He's a very good player. That would give them more stability to the middle order. They are relying too much on the openers. Playing Warner at 4 is bad. He does not suit that position. Henriques will"


Chahal to Warner, no run, stays back to the googly and ends up sending the leading edge to cover.. Just drops short


Chahal to Warner, no run, now he uses his feet to get to the pitch of the ball and drives it firmly to off, but that's straight to the fielder at cover

    • YS Chahal 2-0-8-0
    • HV Patel 2-0-15-0

Aaron comes round the wicket

Don: "@Ram - Agree with you there Ram, why make Dhawan the captain when there's a world cup winning captain in you playing XI. Maybe it would be worth a try having Sammy captain the side and see how it goes, this would allow Dhawan to focus on his batting instead of worrying about captaining the side. "


Aaron to Dhawan, no run, sharp length delivery outside off, doesn't bounce much this time. Dhawan throws his bat at that and misses


Aaron to Dhawan, FOUR, that's typical Dhawan this time! There is hardly any room in that one as it comes in with the angle, but he somehow creates room and cracks it past backward point.. That raced to the boundary

Goes over the wicket


Aaron to Dhawan, 1 wide, digs this one short and this one flies over the batsman's head, it's called a wide

Kuldeep: "@Abhishek: Agreed that Henriques is a good all-rounder who can smash it around with the bad and bowl decently. However, SRH are not in need of an extra bowler and Henriques is certainly no Warner or Finch. His inclusion instead of either of these would only weaken the batting further and in terms of bowling, well - Too many cooks spoil the broth!!"


Aaron to Dhawan, 1 run, shortish again and Dhawan tries to pull this behind square, but gets an underedge on to his body. They pick up a single but Dhawan is in some pain after taking that blow to his thigh

Chahal to Warner, 1 run, this was much slower from Chahal, allowed Warner all the time in the world to go back and punch it to deep midwicket


Chahal to Dhawan, FOUR, he uses his feet and slaps the low full toss calmly over the umpire's head..


Chahal to Dhawan, 2 runs, waits on the back foot and cracks it to deep backward point for a couple


Chahal to Dhawan, 1 run, tossed up and it turns a touch away, was the googly. Dhawan calmly presses forward and dabs it to point for a single


Chahal to Warner, 1 run, that stayed a touch low! Warner was shaping to pull as this was short, but toe-ends it to long off


Chahal to Dhawan, no run, another backfoot punch from Dhawan as he spots the shortness in the length early, but he is not able to beat Gayle at backward point

Raghu B: "Really impressed with the temperament of Warner, the way he is trying to build the innings with odd boundary and have a go in the final overs. Unlike Warner role! Sign of a good team man!"

Patel switches to round the wicket line


HV Patel to Dhawan, no run, looks to cut a length delivery, but this was not short enough. He is beaten


HV Patel to Dhawan, 1 run, this time he decides to wait for the ball rather than throw bat on it, he opens the face of the bat late and runs it down to third man


HV Patel to Warner, FOUR, slower ball, Warner spots it early and plays a double-handed forehand winner down the line! No chance for anyone there


HV Patel to Warner, no run, looks to cut the short of length delivery, but misses it completely


HV Patel to Warner, no run, is that an edge! Parthiv was interested, and I heard something as the ball passed the bat.. But Harshal turns around and takes his hat. Strange
