Pepsi Indian Premier League, 35th match: Royal Challengers Bangalore v Rajasthan Royals at Bangalore, May 11, 2014
Rajasthan Royals won by 5 wickets
11 May 2014 - night match (20-over match)

Richardson to Kohli, OUT, superb start for the Royals so far, and it has just got better. There have been quite a few dots, and few singles, so Kohli throws his bat at this wide delivery. The ball moves away a touch to take a thick edge that flies all the way to third man

V Kohli c Bhatia b Richardson 4 (11m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 44.44

Royal Challengers Bangalore 6/1   CH Gayle 2* (6b)   KW Richardson 1.3-0-5-1

Tambe to Gayle, OUT, Gayle is not reading this wrong'uns, but he is a fair man as this ball shows. Goes to cut, edges the googly, Samson takes a sharp catch, and Gayle walks. Turns out Tucker has his arms raised to call it a wide, but Gayle has walked away. Well played, Chris. Another example of ordinary umpiring this IPL

CH Gayle c †Samson b Tambe 19 (33m 25b 3x4 0x6) SR: 76.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 38/2   VH Zol 15* (12b 3x4)   PV Tambe 1.4-0-14-1

Tewatia to Zol, OUT, Turns out watching the legspinner's hand is out of fashion. Even Zol is not picking the wrong'un even though Tewatia has bowled seven googlies out of seven. Zol reads this off the pitch, which is too late, and he gives slip catching practice as this is pitched short of a length, and turns away to take the edge of a nothing poke

VH Zol c Watson b Tewatia 16 (25m 14b 3x4 0x6) SR: 114.28

Royal Challengers Bangalore 40/3   AB de Villiers 1* (1b)   R Tewatia 1.1-0-2-1

Richardson to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, moves across again to open up the leg side but is beaten. Given out leg-before, but I am not sure it wasn't going down with the angle. Yuvraj walks off to a huge applause from the home crowd. What hitting

Yuvraj Singh lbw b Richardson 83 (52m 38b 7x4 7x6) SR: 218.42

Royal Challengers Bangalore 172/4   AB de Villiers 44* (28b 1x4 3x6)   KW Richardson 4-0-43-2

Faulkner to de Villiers, OUT, full and wide, takes it outside AB's reach, who is looking to stay back and hit, and consequently doesn't get all of this one, and holes out to deep cover

AB de Villiers c Rahane b Faulkner 58 (61m 32b 1x4 5x6) SR: 181.25

Royal Challengers Bangalore 186/5   JA Morkel 0* (0b)   JP Faulkner 3.4-0-38-1
