1.6 finds extra cover. To the man who'd hit RCB's first IPL hundred. This is a full toss on off stump. He backs away and looks to slice it over the infield on the off side. It's a feeble lob to Pandey in the end 13/1
    3.1 he's got him! Superb from Nabi who is now on a hat-trick! The perfect pace - slow, loopy, dipping and turning away from middle stump. This is how you find success in the Powerplay against a left-hander. Hetmyer running down the pitch, nowhere near the ball. Swings across the line and is stumped by a long way 20/2
    6.1 straight to short extra! Sandeep Sharma has Kohli for the sixth time in the IPL in 42 balls! Overpitched ball just outisde off, backs away and drills this cover drive. Straigh to Warner. Didn't have to move 30/4
    3.4 middle stump! AB is also done by the slow pace! Expects this to turn into him and go over the cover region, but this is straight past the outside edge. Didn't get to the pitch of the ball 22/3
    6.2 sloppy from Moeen and he is going to be out here. Royal Challengers completely blindsided here, they don't know what's hitting them. Slower ball at a length on leg stump, flicked towards midwicket. Mo wants the run, he's sent back. The fielder is off balance as he throws and therefore it comes in on the bounce. There's time for Moeen to get back in the crease but he merely plonks the bat in. He's short 30/5
    7.3 drags it out to long-on! It's a free-for-all! Who wants to have a bowl? Length ball, some grip in the corridor. Looks to drill it straight over the bowler but he isn't to the pitch, so this comes off the inside half and is taken well inside the boundary 35/6
    18.3 one of the two players is run out! It was played towards covers, and the fielder fired a quick return back to the bowler. He whips the bails off, and CdG's bat is in the air! He also got rid of Siraj at the other end, but sadly only one of those will count. Sums up RCB's evening, though. Nothing has gone right from the first ball itself this afternoon 109/9
    15.1 slower ball, just outside off, and he looks to chip it down the ground. Checks the shot, and it loops up towards short midwicket. Ray Barman's resistance comes to an end 86/7
    17.3 tossed up outside off, and he pushes this towards backward point. They want to push for two, but the return is sharp and straight to Rashid. Easy run-out of Umesh Yadav, who was very slow during the first. Terrible running! 103/8
    not out
    19.5 slower ball, and he has launched this into the air, and Deepak Hooda gets under this one. That's that! 113/10
