Fall of wickets: 1-26 (Venkatesh Iyer, 3.2 ov), 2-26 (Mandeep Singh, 3.3 ov), 3-47 (Nitish Rana, 6.1 ov), 4-89 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 11.2 ov), 5-89 (Andre Russell, 11.3 ov), 6-192 (Rinku Singh, 18.6 ov), 7-198 (Shardul Thakur, 19.4 ov) • DRS
19.4 to SN Thakur, finally Thakur finds a fielder. Siraj also bowls to his field for a change. Wide bouncer with the mid-off up. Thakur goes for the pull but there is no way to control it from that height and that line. Gets a big top edge to long-on. That ends a sensational innings from Thakur. 198/7
3.2 to VR Iyer, timber. This has jagged back in to hit the middle stump. He has missed this by a long way. Willey stays on a length, just outside off, Iyer likes to play off the back foot, and tries to muscle it through the off side. The seam movement beats him by six inches at least. 26/1
3.3 to Mandeep Singh, and he is already the old batter. How has that hit the off stump? Left-arm quick, hitting the off stump of a right-hand batter usually happens when the ball is swinging back in or if the batter is going hammer and tongs. This one, though, is a wobble-seam delivery that lands on middle and off, seams away to beat Mandeep's defensive prod, and still manages to clip the off stump. Mandeep is squared up. 26/2
6.1 to N Rana, big appeal for a catch as Rana reverse-sweeps first ball. Not given on the field, and they review after much discussion. Replays show this has come straight off the glove. Rana shapes up fort the shot early, Bracewell gets some bounce to go past the top of the bat and take the glove to lob up for catch for Karthik. 47/3
11.2 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, that is one way to get out. Almost nail the reverse-sweep but find short third with it. This is on a length, outside off, and he middles it with the reverse. Except that he has played it finer than he wants to. Straight to short third. 89/4
11.3 to AD Russell, and his stay is short. Just one ball long. Russell is looking for a six first ball, and he gets a full enough ball, but he has not been able to connect properly at all. Easy catch for long-off, well off the boundary line. Not even close to a six. 89/5
18.6 to RK Singh, misses out on the fifty but he has played an important hand. Harshal bowls the slower bouncer, Rinku tries to get inside the line to try to go over short fine, but ends up gloving it to the keeper. Shah Rukh Khan gives him a standing applause. 192/6

TOTAL17.4 Ov (RR: 6.96)123
Fall of wickets: 1-44 (Virat Kohli, 4.5 ov), 2-46 (Faf du Plessis, 5.2 ov), 3-54 (Glenn Maxwell, 7.2 ov), 4-54 (Harshal Patel, 7.4 ov), 5-61 (Shahbaz Ahmed, 8.5 ov), 6-83 (Michael Bracewell, 11.3 ov), 7-84 (Anuj Rawat, 12.2 ov), 8-86 (Dinesh Karthik, 12.5 ov), 9-96 (Karn Sharma, 14.3 ov), 10-123 (Akash Deep, 17.4 ov) • DRS
4.5 to V Kohli, gone, the off stump is plucked! Eden is up in celebration. Kohli went to play across the line, but missed this fullish ball which pitched just outside off. It was flicked from the front of the hand, and turned in nicely enough for Narine to strike in his first over. RCB lose an early wicket in a big chase. 44/1
8.5 to Shahbaz Ahmed, picks deep point! That was actually well struck, as Shahbaz went reverse sweeping. The fielder in the deep moved a few steps to right to gobble that. Narine went much fuller this time, angling it into the left-hander, as the ball ended on off stump. Shahbaz rolled his wrists and struck nicely, only to unfortunately find the fielder. 61/5
5.2 to F du Plessis, another mystery spinner strikes for KKR! Now du Plessis' turn to be cleaned up. Varun tosses it up a bit, and goes on a slightly shorter side of a length outside off. That was bowled from back of the hand, and hinted to turn in, as du Plessis went for an expansive drive but got an inside edge. RCB's chase gets derailed just after they had started well. 46/2
7.2 to GJ Maxwell, bowled him again! Once again it's the off stump that is uprooted. From the back of the hand, and on the shorter side of a length. That pitched just outside off, and turned in and bounced nicely enough for the bowler's liking, as Maxwell went swinging hard and across the line, but was completely foxed. He lost his shape, as Varun struck again. 54/3
7.4 to HV Patel, another inside edge, and bowled him again! That was quicker from Varun too, and was another googly. That is now four bowleds. Bowls from the back of the hand - and the googly - on a good length outside off. Harshal goes pushing hard, as the turn in finds the gap between his bat and pad. This time it is the middle and leg stumps that are disturbed. 54/4
17.4 to Akash Deep, very good catch by Varun! He ended up where an imaginary midwicket fielder would have been, diving forward to complete the catch. There were two others rushing towards the ball, but Varun kept his eyes on it, not getting distracted by Gurbaz reaching so close to his left. The ball was flirted up right into the clouds, as Deep went heaving at this full ball, only to get a top edge. KKR win by 81 runs. 123/10
12.2 to Anuj Rawat, finds short third! Impact Sub gets his counterpart. Top-edged to the fielder there, as he saw this full delivery tossed up just outside off. It hinted to turn away - as Suyash had good revs on the ball - with Rawat going for the big heave across the line. But he got a top edge, and found the fielder. 84/7
12.5 to KD Karthik, another one finds short third! Suyash strikes again, as the mystery spinners continue to have a roll. This one was full and a bit loopy outside off, inviting the big loft from the batter, with Karthik going for it. The ball took off from the outside edge, and flew to short third's right for a simple take. 86/8
14.3 to KV Sharma, An animated appeal by Suyash, and not given. The ball went to the slip fielder after Karn missed his sweep, and KKR review. That was bowled from the back of the hand, on a full length on middle and off. Karn swept but missed, and there looks like no bat involved. Ah, UltraEdge detects a faint bottom edge. But Karn is gone even then, since the ball had carried to slip. So he is given caught, and Suyash has his third. 96/9
11.3 to MG Bracewell, gloved to short fine! Good catch by Rana tumbling forward. Thakur banged it in short again - this time to the left-hander - and pitched it just about on leg stump. Bracewell pulled, but the extra bounce played a part in him not timing it well. The ball ballooned up for a good take by the KKR captain. 83/6
