2.3 Cleaned up, the middle stump has been flattened! This is a top, top delivery. Angles in a cross-seam delivery length from wide of the crease, this may have nipped away ever-so-slightly as Hales looked to play across the line. Missed it to see the stumps pegged back. 15/1
    5.5 pulled straight to Southee at fine leg! This was an effort ball from Siraj, Dhawan picked the length early and swivelled to pull, but he was looking to clear the long boundary, didn't get it off the middle. The local boy has given RCB a reason to cheer 38/2
    15.6 walks across and tries to heave it over. Had to fetch it from way outside off and playing from that far outside, it's always hard to middle anything. Skews it to the man at the deep backward square leg boundary. Umesh almost oversteps 112/4
    8.2 ah, that's tame. Chips a length ball straight into the hands of short cover. They go upstairs to check the front foot, and he seems to have done alright there. Chahal gave it just about enough loop and landed it around middle, Pandey cleared the front leg and simply gave Kohli some catching practice 48/3
    17.2 slower length ball, Shakib gets across and sweeps this straight to Umesh at backward square leg. Big wicket under the circumstances. Made him fetch this, because he changed the pace, this bounced that much more to hit the top part of the bat to deny him the power to clear the infield. 124/5
    18.1 flattens leg stump. Yusuf looks for an ambitious hoick but is beaten for pace. Maybe he was expecting a slower ball. 134/6
    18.6 trying to be too ambitious! This is a 146kph delivery that has cleaned up Saha's stumps. Full and angling in, he tries to ramp, misses and the off and middle stump take a knock. 143/7
    19.2 mistimes a pull to midwicket, brain fade from Bhuvi as he turned for the second, Rashid was never going to get there. Kohli coming in from deepmidwicket had to watch out for the late spin, he collected the ball on the bounce and fired an accurate throw to Parthiv who did the rest 144/8
    not out
    19.5 pulled to deep midwicket, but no timing or power. They turned for the second blindly, Kaul seems confident of having made his ground, but Kohli thinks its out. Looks like he's comfortably gone. Good gather from Parthiv. 146/9
    19.6 tries to reverse this length ball, but misses. The ball angles in from wide of the crease to hit him on the back leg. Looks like he's hit in line. Ball tracker confirms this would've smashed into off stump. The on-field decision was not out, so the decision has now been overturned. SRH bowled out. 146/10

    7.1 oh, he's chopped it on. So the drop doesn't prove as costly. A legsidish slower ball, 113ks, just back of a length. Vohra doesn't pick the drop in pace and tries to whip forcefully. Swings early and gets an inside edge to the thigh pad, before the ball clips the glove as he completes the swing and then takes the bails out 60/2
    2.5 that looks close and it's been given. Parthiv looks at his partner and then walks off, so review not taken. Might have been umpire's call, so perhaps a good decision to not review. Parthiv misses the sweep as this length ball spins in and pins him dead in front of middle 24/1
    9.5 leading edge and the catch has been taken by Yusuf at short third man. He's taken it one-handed! For a while it looked like Yusuf lost it completely, thinks its going over, eventually sticks his right hand out to pluck that. Kohli shaped to pull but was cramped for room and the ball looped up. Big strike, the match is alive! 74/3
    10.4 back-to-back wrong'uns and AB's gone. Picks the googly, but too close for the cut. This keeps a touch low as AB chops on! RCB in real trouble 80/4
    11.4 he's feathered an edge and RCB are on a freefall. Not the right length to pull, looked to fetch from outside off, and just got the bottom edge. The umpire didn't give it initially but raised his finger as he saw Moeen walking. Moeen's maiden IPL outing with the bat is a forgettable one! 84/5
    not out
    19.6 and their season goes out the window. RCB all but out of the tournament. De Grandhomme walks across a long way and tries to whip it but the yorkers angles into him and sneaks from underneath the bat to smash the stumps 141/6
