    0.6 125 kph. Sunrisers strike early. A good catch from Kaul at third man. A back of a length delivery outside off, moves away too and may have bounced a tad extra. Parthiv heaves across the line, felt like he was there a touch early too. The ball takes a thick leading edge and goes very very high - more elevation than distance - and carries down to third man, who runs to his right and takes a good catch. 6/1
    4.5 cleaned 'im up. You can't really say that often but that was poor game awareness from Kohli. He just got four against the opposition's best bowler, and went for six this time. It's a tossed up googly outside off, Kohli backs away and slogs across the line. He misses, the ball doesn't, hits off and middle stump. Maybe it was instinct or his determination to attack the best, but that wasn't the best decision he's made. 38/2
    14.2 for all the pyrotechnics of RCB batting, that is spectacular from Dhawan! Stalls this innings, quietens the crowd with a typical T20 play. Events such as this change games. And all it needs to be is a catch. A flat delivery on middle and leg, AB stays low and sweeps towards deep square leg It seems like it's lobbing over Dhawan, but he stays calm, takes the catch and ensures his balance doesn't take him over by keeping a strong centre of gravity. Awesome catch. Not as good as Boult's, but very close. 145/3
    14.4 two in three! Rashid pulls things back. A flat googly outside off, Moeen reverse-paddles the ball from the back of the bat. It's a significant deflection, but Goswami gets his gloves to it, and parries the ball up and takes the rebound. Not the worst shot from Moeen, but another fantastic catch. 149/4
    19.2 Rashid takes that! He misjudged that as well but he's taken a one-handed stunner! Much like Trent Boult, Rashid misjudges this, comes in, and backtracks late. He then goes back, but this is much flatter so all he can do is stick out his right hand take the catch nonchalantly. It was a flat-batted swat from CdG. 210/6
    17.1 Dhawan takes the catch at long-off. A shortish length delivery outside off, hoicked away but with bad timing. The bat turns in his hands as well, taken by Dhawan. Easy catch. 176/5

    5.1 hit straight back! Dhawan steps out to go over the top, can't get to the pitch and ends up chipping it back. Big wicket for RCB. Dhawan checked his shot because the ball gripped the surface and spun back in, may have been able to just clear the bowler had he gone through 47/1
    7.6 today is a day of catches, physics-defying from AB! It's that superman AB de Villiers. The catch is so good that Kohli and his mates do a 100 metre dash to run towards their mate. Magnificent, incredible. Hales steps out and muscles this length ball over deep midwicket, he thinks he's cleared it but doesn't know what's to come. AB leaps high, but realises the ball was swirling away. Instinctively puts his right hand out and pulls off a one-handed stunner even as it continued to curl away. Mind you. he was airborne when the ball lodged in his hand, so there was still a simple matter of having to land, keep control and be mindful of the ropes. All items checked. Wow 64/2
    19.1 scoops this straight to de Grandhomme at fine leg! This went a mile in the air as he walked out to expose all three stumps and scoop, the ball went a mile, was swirling high and handsome, but de Grandhomme kept his composure to pull off a difficult catch. Is that the game? What a game. 199/3
