Fall of wickets: 1-27 (KL Rahul, 3.4 ov), 2-182 (Virat Kohli, 19.3 ov), 3-182 (AB de Villiers, 19.4 ov)
3.4 to KL Rahul, third time lucky for the Supergiants. Rahul plays an ugly hoick. It was a full ball, which he tried to loft over mid-on, but the bat and feet were in no position as the ball flies off a thick outside edge to Ishant, who didn't have to move an inch at third man. 27/1
19.3 to V Kohli, no control over that pull, it was the slower one, the bat face turned in his hand as he made contact, the man at deep midwicket didn't have to move an inch. Kohli slaps the bat on his thigh pad as he walks off. He's far from happy with the shot, by the looks of it. 182/2
19.4 to AB de Villiers, slower leg-cutter outside off, ABD looked to go over long-on, gets a top edge to a nervous Ankit Sharma, who just about managed to get his hands around that one. He was off balance when the ball lodged in his hands.. 182/3

Fall of wickets: 1-12 (Faf du Plessis, 1.4 ov), 1-12* (Kevin Pietersen, retired hurt), 2-18 (Steven Smith, 2.3 ov), 3-109 (Ajinkya Rahane, 14.4 ov), 4-120 (MS Dhoni, 15.5 ov), 5-164 (Thisara Perera, 18.3 ov), 6-165 (Ravichandran Ashwin, 18.5 ov), 7-169 (Rajat Bhatia, 19.3 ov), 8-169 (Murugan Ashwin, 19.4 ov)
1.4 to F du Plessis, there's the early wicket for RCB, and Kohli is pumped. Not quite there for Faf to hit through the line, he stepped out to go over mid-off, but the ball got big on him and Patel took an easy catch.. 12/1
19.3 to R Bhatia, the slower bouncer has done the trick. Bhatia fetched the pull from outside off, didn't connect well as the ball didn't arrive, too early into the stroke as it lobbed to Watson at square leg. Plucky knock but had a little too much to do in the end. 169/7
19.4 to M Ashwin, how easy has AB de Villiers made that look? Ashwin slapped that over the infield, ABD was back-pedalling from mid-off, realised he was going nowhere, so he twirled and twisted around to set himself up and then leaped to catch the ball with his palms facing skywards. Both feet were off the ground when he took the catch. Stunning. 169/8
15.5 to MS Dhoni, touch-and-go stuff by AB de Villiers, but that's a sensational catch at long-off. This was floated full outside off, Dhoni drilled it, the ball flew off the bat, but it didn't matter because de Villiers was lurking around there. The advertising triangle behind him was no more than a couple of centimetres away. De Villiers was hardly bothered by that though, in complete control right throughout.. 120/4
18.3 to NLTC Perera, the Thisara party is over, Watson has delivered under pressure. Fires it full and wide outside off, he got it low on the bat and it lobbed straight to Mandeep at cover. Watson lets out a roar, and that's understandable. It got a little too close for comfort, but what a knock!. 164/5
18.5 to R Ashwin, intention was right, but the execution came a cropper. Ashwin lined himself for the slog, Watson helped him by bowling short of length on off, he went through with the stroke, got it off the middle. The only issue was it was right down Harshal Patel's throat at deep midwicket. 165/6
14.4 to AM Rahane, there's the wicket. Beautifully done. This one was a slider that went past Rahane's wild swing, didn't get to the pitch of the ball and Rahul whipped the balls off in a jiffy. Shamsi leaps high and punches the air in delight. Not a bad first wicket to have in the IPL, is it? RCB call the celebration the 'Busdriver dance'. Wonder what that is all about. 109/3
