    1.4 he's gloved this down leg, so the move hasn't worked. Archer swivels back to pull but is cramped for room as the ball angles back in, faint little edge through to Parthiv. Fourth duck of the season for Jofra. 2/1
    13.1 swings across the line to heave it over the leg side and gets hit on the pad. Umesh turns around and appeals and the umpire takes a long time to give it. Rahane asks for the review. A little too full for him to attempt that heave with a half-angled bat as the ball sneaks from underneath after keeping a little low. Seems to be be hitting the stumps, but he did take a big stride across which is what could save him. Nah, actually, it's umpire's call on impact 101/2
    13.2 straight to short midwicket. Umesh again provides RCB with crucial strikes. Royals cannot afford to slow down anymore, and Samson has paid the price for checking his stroke here. Closes the face from outside off to a length ball and the follow-through isn't great as he's caught in two minds. Chips it straight to Moeen Ali 101/3
    18.6 looks to clear long off, but no timing and Moeen takes a simple catch at the ropes. Klassen backed away, Siraj bowled it full and wide. Slowed the pace down as well, so he couldn't get any timing on that as well despite having a good reach. Useful knock nonetheless. 149/4
    19.6 walks across, so Southee fires this full and wide, he can't carve it so decides to scoot a bye. Parthiv flicks the underarm throw to Southee, who breaks the bails at the bowler's end with Gowtham not even in sight. 164/5

    2.5 gone, Kohli's gone! This is a huge wicket for Royals. You got the feeling Kohli was playing for the 15.5 over requirement. Charges down the ground to force the pace, not quite full enough and he swipes only for the ball to spin in from a length and flatten the stumps 20/1
    8.3 slides one across, Parthiv shapes to pull but this beats the underedge as he misses. In doing so, he dragged his back foot forward and it was on the line when the bails were whipped off. Stunning work from Klaasen. Parthiv's done his job though. 75/2
    12.4 misreads the googly, gone. That could be the final nail in RCB's coffin this season? Class from Shreyas Gopal! Lands this outside off, AB is sucked into the drive, but is done in by the length as well as the ball rips back in to beat the inside edge. Klaasen is alert as he pulls off another superb stumping. 98/6
    8.6 he's chipped this back to Shreyas, who leaps high to take an excellent return catch. The double-strike returns to stun RCB, the blue flags are out. The googly has done the trick. He's a short man, but timed his jump superbly. 77/3
    10.3 there's the big wicket. Mandeep runs down under pressure to go over the top, beaten by sharp turn and Klaasen executes a straightforward stumping. Superb bowling, nicely tossed up him and deceived him in flight. Big moment in the match. 85/4
    11.6 shapes to drive, doesn't get to the pitch, is beaten for turn, and gets a thick edge that has been taken beautifully by Rahane at slip. Excellent captaincy to have himself stationed there. Superb from Sodhi. Dragged him forward into the drive, deceived him in flight and thank you very much. RCB slide further. 96/5
    15.1 stunning from Klaasen! Catch of the match. Sarfaraz looks to play a late cut, but strangely to another slower ball. Surely he can't be trying dinky strokes like those without pace to work with? Doesn't matter, he has to go. Klaasen's anticipation is top notch as he moves quickly to his right, dives low and puts his right hand out to pluck that inches from the ground. 108/7
    17.6 he's got more elevation than distance, would've been six at Chinnaswamy but the boundaries in Jaipur are huge. Swung away and Gowtham takes a simple catch off the toe end at wide long-on. 128/9
    15.2 the middle and off stump has been flattened. Right through Umesh's defence. Hits the hard length this time, he played all around it. Royals roar. 108/8
    19.2 swung away, but this is a steepler towards deep midwicket. Sanju Samson is running IN, K Gowtham is running back from the ingield, the ball curves in the air and as it comes down, Samson oses balance and fumbles, but Gowtham has the presence of mind to take this on the rebound. Stunning win for the Royals. Bangalore boys Gowtham and Gopal have booted RCB out of IPL 2018. 134/10
