    6.2 vital breakthrough! Parthiv can barely drag himself from the crease. He plays across the line at a floaty googly, and a leading edge loops very tamely to his captain at cover. Parthiv looks suspiciously at the pitch as he trudges off, but this dismissal was down to good bowling and a loose stroke 71/2
    3.1 and gets his man! A full house has been silenced as Kohli slices a drive uppishly into the covers, where this time the fielder - Mandeep - makes no mistake 35/1

    7.3 bowled him! Moeen stayed deep in the crease, waiting and playing for orthodox turn, but the ball rushes on to him with the arm, skidding through a little low and slamming into the stumps. And that's that for Moeen and IPL 2019 - he's back to England now 76/3
    8.6 tapped tamely to cover! Akshdeep was much too early into this push to cover as Viljoen rolled his fingers over a 134km/h cutter. The ball ballooned off the bat and presented Mandeep with the very simplest of chances 81/4

    10.1 and he strikes first ball! This will dent Kings XI's chances even further. Rahul was looking to get after Moeen straight away, but his lofted stroke comes off the end of the bat and finds Southee at long off. It's not the biggest boundary, but the shot doesn't have the legs to beat him 105/3
    3.2 taken at long-on now and de Villiers holds the pose, standing in front of his beloved RCB fans! Seriously, there's only like three inches between his boots and the boundary and he takes it so florgin coolly! Holds the ball and his hands aloft for a second or two for the photographers and then runs into the huddle. Lovely stuff from the RCB's greatest game-changer. And the ex-RCB game-changer leaves having mis-hit a short ball, the pull shot going up instead of long 42/1
    9.1 Stoinis breaks through! Against the run of play. And it was a fairly innocuous delivery, just short of a length and straight. Mayank was looking to pull it off the front foot, and didn't bother keeping it down, but the ball has just rushed on quicker than he expected, looping off the splice to be caught by a tumbling Chahal at midwicket inside the circle. Stoinis bellows his approval at the wicket. Kohli's pretty chuffed too 101/2
    18.1 caught at long on! Well, Stoinis has just dropped Pooran, but de Villiers makes no mistake in the deep to get rid of Miller. The ball was full, and the shot was on, but Miller just didn't get the height or the distance he was looking for. AB made ground, running around in front of the sightscreen and then diving forward to hold the chance 173/4
    18.6 another skied slog, but this one is held! If anything, this one went even further up in the air than the last chance as Pooran backed away and heaved at a full one. The ball is in the air for an age, coming down with ice on it, but if there's one fielder you'd trust to hold such a difficult chance, it's de Villiers. He settles under the swirling chance, and has to dive at the last minute to get to it, but clings on 176/5

    19.2 but maybe it is now. The ball was a similar one, so the shot was on again, but Ashwin just didn't get the connection he was looking for. He still got enough on it to make the catch a difficult one - Kohli had to time his leap, right next to the boundary at long on, just right, but he does so and holds the catch cleanly 182/6
    19.3 gloved down the leg side, and this game is safe now. Umesh greets his fellow quick Hardus with a bumper first up, and he can only get a glove on it. Parthiv makes ground and tumbles to his left to hold the low, dipping chance, and Yadav is on a hat trick as the Chinnaswamy finds its voice once more 182/7
