View dismissal CH Gayle c †Karthik b Tye 8 22 11 1 0 72.72
4.1 and gone first ball. RCB struggling early again. Excellent line, on a length outside off. Gayle just prods at that, the ball kisses the outside edge and carries to Dinesh Karthik. Sensational lines. Lions' tight lines in the previous overs have worked. 22/2
View dismissal V Kohli* c Finch b Basil Thampi 10 19 13 0 1 76.92
3.5 he's picked out short fine leg. My, my. The home crowd is stunned into silence. A good length delivery down leg, quite a bad delivery but Kohli pulls and finds short fine leg. The only man there. Didn't keep it down or didn't place it. Backed himself to find a gap and didn't give him a failsafe if he didn't. probably overcritical, but that wasn't a good shot. A little bit of arrogance in that 22/1
View dismissal AB de Villiers run out (Jadeja) 5 29 11 0 0 45.45
9.3 Ankit Soni to Mandeep Singh, an absolute waste. And RCB are in deeep trouble. Flight from Mandeep, played towards point. AB calls Mandeep through even though Mandeep is hesitant. Seeing his partner's hesitation, AB is now flat-footed, wondering if the run is on. But when Jadeja is hurtling towards the ball, there is no time to wonder. Jadeja picks up and hits direct at the batsman's end. That wasn't Mandeep's fault, wasn't AB's either, just bad luck 60/5
View dismissal TM Head c Raina b Tye 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
4.2 Tye is on a hat-trick again. Wow. What a ball. Head has no idea what happened there. RCB are 22 for 3. These are Test-match lines on a spicy surface. Doing nothing wrong. Hits a back of a length, on a fourth-stump line. Head has to play, it's t20 afterall. But gets a thick outside edge which carries at head height to Raina at wide slip, who gets his hands up and takes a good reverse-cupped catch 22/3
View dismissal KM Jadhav b Jadeja 31 18 18 4 1 172.22
8.4 bad batting. A low-percentage option. All his strokes before this were good options. A late cut is a very risky option when the ball is straight. Jadeja is very rarely not straight. Jadhav tries a deft dab to third man but misses. Clatters into middle and leg stump, not even off, that was how low-percentage that stroke was. Again, Jadhav not giving him a failsafe if things went wrong. It did and RCB slump further. 58/4
View dismissal Mandeep Singh c Jadeja b Tye 8 34 14 0 0 57.14
15.5 Mandeep commits the same error he did in the previous game. A short and wide delivery outside off, a nothing delivery. But Mandeep cuts and finds backward point. A simple catch for Jadeja. Not good cricket from Mandeep. Once an error, twice not just an error 110/8
View dismissal P Negi c Basil Thampi b Ankit Soni 32 16 19 3 2 168.42
13.4 good bowling from Soni. Tosses the googly up outside off, in the arc outside off. Negi mis-times a sweep and picks out deep midwicket. Backed himself and slowed that one up. Great bowling. Good knock from Negi too 100/6
View dismissal S Badree c Ishan Kishan b Jadeja 3 5 3 0 0 100.00
14.3 another good catch. Flat and quick on off, Badree keeps going. Gets underneath the length and sweeps but gets more elevation than distance. The ball goes straight up. Kishan runs in from deep midwicket and takes a good catch 105/7
View dismissal S Aravind c McCullum b Faulkner 9 22 16 0 0 56.25
19.4 111 kph, makes it look soooo easy. A slower ball outside off, Aravind lofts the ball towards long-on. Not great timing. McCullum moves back, takes a reverse-cupped catch, sees his momentum is taking him over so he throws the ball up, comes back in and takes it. Such an easy catch he makes it look. 133/9
A Choudhary not out 15 18 12 1 0 125.00
View dismissal YS Chahal run out (McCullum/†Karthik) 1 1 2 0 0 50.00
19.6 from Faulkner, full and wide, hit to long-off. Chahal runs back for the second but McCullum throws the ball to Karthik who takes off the bails to find Chahal a few feet short. This is the first time RCB have been bowled out in consecutive games 134/10

View dismissal Ishan Kishan lbw b Badree 16 9 11 4 0 145.45
2.3 pinned plumb in front. This was the full, straight ball, Kishan dares to play across the line. He can't put bat on the sweep, though. The ball skids onto rap the front pad below the knee-roll. This was clattering into the middle of middle stump. That was how plumb it was 18/1
View dismissal BB McCullum c de Villiers b Badree 3 19 6 0 0 50.00
4.1 Long-on was the deep, Baz dares to take him on. He only miscues it to de Villiers. Two in two for Badree. Baz makes some room and jumps down the track. He can't get close enough to the pitch. Drags a catch to long-on 23/2
