TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 10.00)200/5
Fall of wickets: 1-83 (Narayan Jagadeesan, 9.2 ov), 2-88 (Jason Roy, 9.6 ov), 3-168 (Nitish Rana, 17.2 ov), 4-169 (Venkatesh Iyer, 17.4 ov), 5-185 (Andre Russell, 18.6 ov) • DRS
18.6 to AD Russell, lovely yorker speared into the leg stump. Russell is bowled as he clears the front leg to hit. Superb comeback from Siraj after going for 14 in the first three balls. 185/5
17.2 to N Rana, finally they catch Rana. It is Vyshak who does it. Another reverse sweep but Hasaranga is bowling legbreaks and not wrong'uns. The top edge goes towards short third who dives forward to take the catch. 168/3
17.4 to VR Iyer, and when Iyer tries the slog sweep, it turns out to be the wrong'un. Bowled two legbreaks when they were playing for the wrong'un, and now slips in the wrong'un. Goes a mile in the air, and Maxwell takes it at long-on. Once again turning the momentum around is Hasaranga. 169/4
9.2 to N Jagadeesan, caught at deep midwicket. Vyshak bowls the bouncer, gets good height on it, Jagadeesan pulls, doesn't get all of it, and finds the deep midwicket. 83/1
9.6 to JJ Roy, what a time to go for the change-up. Vyshak has frustrated Roy with the wide lines for two overs now. This time Roy shuffles across, and Vyshak has nailed a leg-stump yorker. I wonder if Vyshak saw the foot moving, and then changed up at the last moment. The foot did move before the release. And if he did that after seeing the foot move, this is a great spell of limited-overs bowling against a destructive batter. 88/2

Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-31 (Faf du Plessis, 2.2 ov), 2-51 (Shahbaz Ahmed, 4.4 ov), 3-58 (Glenn Maxwell, 5.5 ov), 4-113 (Mahipal Lomror, 11.3 ov), 5-115 (Virat Kohli, 12.1 ov), 6-137 (Suyash Prabhudessai, 14.5 ov), 7-152 (Wanindu Hasaranga, 16.5 ov), 8-154 (Dinesh Karthik, 17.3 ov) • DRS
2.2 to F du Plessis, and Suyash has the wicket. Wow what a challenge, and he has aced it. Wrong'un, flighted, and du Plessis makes room to go over long-on, but doesn't get all of it. A smart overhead catch by Rinku at the fence. 31/1
4.4 to Shahbaz Ahmed, that is out one of the two ways, and Shahbaz walks off. The fullest Suyash has bowled today, and Shahbaz is beaten on the sweep. He is dead plumb but just in case he has got an edge, it has lobbed up for a catch too. In the end he is out lbw. Replays show he got a bit of a feather, but it doesn't matter. 51/2
5.5 to GJ Maxwell, they have lost three in the powerplay. Maxwell is looking to go over mid-on, but the offbreak sort of cramps him, and ends up kinda slicing it straight to mid-off . Two of the big three of RCB gone. 58/3
11.3 to MK Lomror, smart bowling. Varun pushes this wide on the line. Lomror has to drag this one. Gets just the toe end, and is he caught at the fence on deep midwicket. Another twist. 113/4
17.3 to KD Karthik, that is signed, sealed and delivered. Karthik has pulled a long hop straight to deep midwicket. Slow off the pitch, gets no timing on it, and it is all over for RCB. 154/8
12.1 to V Kohli, is this the game? Digs one in short, and Kohli smacks a pull clean, only for Iyer to take a stunning catch at deep midwicket. This is travelling flat, Iyer dives to his left, the ball hits his hands high but he recovers to prevent it from wobbling out of the hands even as he rolls over. 115/5
16.5 to PW Hasaranga, wow it is KKR's day, it would appear. A slower ball, wide half-volley, Hasaranga goes down on a knee and lofts it with an open face, but he has found Anukul Roy at deep point to perfection. 152/7
