Scorecard summary
Royal Challengers Bangalore62/7(5 overs)
Rajasthan Royals41/1(3.2 overs)

That's all from our side for this game. See you soon.

Nikhil Agarwal: "Rajasthan is the most unlucky team in this IPL. Knocked bails 3 times but the bails did not fall completely, Mankading, and lost the final moments of every lost games."

Earlier, Shreyas Gopal dismissed both Kohli and de Villiers once again and, in fact, went on to complete the hat-trick with Stoinis' wicket. In case you are wondering, the hat-trick still stands.

12.24 Guess what? It's raining again and that's it! The game has been called off when we were just ten balls away from a full game. The teams share a point each and that means RCB have been knocked out, even mathematically. However, the result hurts Rajasthan Royals. They would have backed themselves to score those 22 off 10 balls.

Saini to Samson, 1 run
length ball around off, goes for the pull but mistimes it towards deep square leg, only a single. More like a drag than a pull

Saini to Livingstone, 1 run
a high full toss and Klaasen almost pulls of a stunner, at cover. Flung himself to his right, got his hand to it when the ball had already passed him but he fails to latch on to

Saini to Livingstone, SIX runs
toe-end of the bat but it sails over long-off, all the way for a six. Was short of length outside off, Livingstone went for a tennis-like forehand, got enough on it
