    0.5 is he gone? Yes he is! That was the most sullen caught behind dismissal you will see. This is back of a length, outside off stump. Amla chases it with a cut and it carries through to Kedar, who doesn't appeal. No one appeals. Not till Amla appears to be walking off, at which point Aniket raises the question and the umpire, Shamshuddin, says okay 2/1
    3.3 good length outside off, plants a stride in and looks to lift this over mid-off, but this is a slow pitch. He isn't to the pitch there and is through the shot early. Once more, he slices it and this time there is a sweeper cover to take that. Good captaincy to expect Guptill to skew some there on a slow pitch 18/2
    6.6 holes out. Disastrous start for Kings XI. Slides this across the left hander from around the wicket at a good length. Marsh wants to bludgeon this on the up but the angle has done him. Not the shot for this pitch. Hits it straight to long-off 39/3
    11.2 gone. Good bowling from Chahal. Tosses this up at a good length and gets it to dip quickly on an off stump line. Vohra sees it above eye level and is ready with the slog sweep, but that is down and spinning away before he can fully execute his shot. Can only sky it to AB at long-on who hangs gracefully under it and finishes off nicely 61/4
    17.2 good length, offcutter, literally cuts the outside of off stump. Saha knows third man is in so he's looking to bunt this between that fielder and backward point. But there isn't enough room and the stumps light up 112/6
    13.5 Maxwell is late on the reverse sweep at this length ball on middle stump, and skies to short third man, where Badree watches sheepishly before getting under it and holding on...hang on, this could be a no-ball. Phew. The umpire sent it upstairs after the catch was taken and replays showed he was very, very close to overstepping. The benefit of doubt is given to the bowler, it seems. 78/5

    18.1 back of a length outside off, he sways across the line and Jadhav appeals after taking this. It's given, he got it off the outside edge 119/7

    11.2 gets the middle stump! He rolled in a straight delivery from around the wicket, it was slightly short so Mandeep opened his stance to pull that over midwicket but he missed it completely and the ball hit the sticks 73/6
    0.4 comes down and hands a catch straight to point! It was another swinging delivery from Sandeep, Gayle walked down in line with the leg stump and the ball swung enough to take the outside edge and fly straight to the fielder 1/1
    2.5 he's got Kohli too, clean bowled! Kohli charged down quickly, it was an inswinger from Sandeep which pitched around off and middle and came in, Kohli swung hard and missed it completely. What a blow for RCB, what accurate bowling from Sandeep 23/2
    4.5 AB caught behind, Sandeep is on fire! This is beautiful swing bowling from Sandeep under pressure. He keeps his head and bowls it in the channel just outside off with lovely shape, AB charges down like Kohli and gets a thick outside edge for Saha to snap it easily 37/3
    7.5 this is easier than catching practice to Axar Patel at short cover. Jadhav also charges down, not sure why, it's the slower ball, he tries to loft it over the infield but miscues it to Axar 52/4
    10.5 that's not a great ball but Watson has edged it to the keeper! It was short, it was wide and Watson got into position to cut it fiercely but only managed a thin outside edge. Saha did the rest 71/5
    17.1 there's a collision on the field but the good news is nobody looks injured and Saha took the catch! Axar pitched it short and wide outside off, Negi swing hard and got a leading edge, the ball went high towards point as Saha ran to his left, Aaron came in and Saha pouched it easily 111/8
    13.5 this one's out, tries to sweep but Aravind is struck right in front of middle! Number two for Maxwell, he's pumped. It was a fullish delivery , Aravind didn't get in great position to sweep that and was caught right in front 87/7

    17.2 bowled! Axar wants to finish it this over. It was a flat delivery from outsde off, Badree went for the pull but the ball went under his bat to knock off stump 111/9
    18.6 taken at mid off, RCB done and dusted on their home ground. Slower ball to end the match this time, it was back of length, Choudhary made room to slam it down the ground but miscued a catch to Guptill 119/10
