TOTAL19.3 Ov (RR: 6.71, 99 Mins)131
Fall of wickets: 1-48 (Gautam Gambhir, 3.4 ov), 2-65 (Sunil Narine, 5.4 ov), 3-66 (Robin Uthappa, 6.2 ov), 4-82 (Yusuf Pathan, 9.1 ov), 5-93 (Manish Pandey, 11.1 ov), 6-93 (Colin de Grandhomme, 11.3 ov), 7-120 (Chris Woakes, 16.3 ov), 8-125 (Nathan Coulter-Nile, 17.3 ov), 9-125 (Suryakumar Yadav, 17.4 ov), 10-131 (Kuldeep Yadav, 19.3 ov)
6.2 to RV Uthappa, The drift has done the trick. Appeal for lbw as Uthappa plays across the line to a full ball on middle, umpire CK Nandan thought about this for a while and decided it would've crashed into the stumps. Played into Badree's hands, should've been trying to play straighter towards long-on rather than midwicket.. 66/3
3.4 to G Gambhir, the late movement has done the trick. This length delivery bowled with a scrambled seam comes back in to middle and deviates late to square up Gambhir, who pokes at that. It was dying on Jadhav, because of lack of pace, and he dived forward to complete the catch. Gambhir walks off shaking his head, he though it came off the hand. The onfield umpires can only check if it carried. Replays confirm Gambhir got glove on that. . 48/1
16.3 to CR Woakes, slower ball at off stump, leans into it again. He seemed to have picked the slower ball, but ended up picking deep midwicket too. Got to the pitch and tried to lift it over that corner of the boundary with an aerial flick, but got under it too much. High before landing safely in the fielder's grasp. 120/7
19.3 to Kuldeep Yadav, and that's it for KKR. This is an off cutter. Good length outside off stump, steps out and looks to swing this into the midwicket boundary, but he's missed. It slams into the middle stump. 131/10
5.4 to SP Narine, timed beautifully but he's picked out the lone man at deep square leg. Too short, he goes back into the crease and whips that away. Chahal was right there at the ropes and took it with both hands facing the sky. Narine's done his job though, he's livid with himself for playing that shot. 65/2
9.1 to YK Pathan, beautifully done by Chahal. Big moment, surely? Sees Yusuf give him the charge and fires this down leg, Jadhav is alert to that possibility, moves swiftly to his left, collects cleanly and whips the bails off even as a desperate Yusuf tries to lunge back in.. 82/4
11.1 to MK Pandey, flicks a low full toss straight to midwicket. Pandey can't believe what he's just done. Nicely tossed up, the ball dips on him and Pandey hit it well but found the fielder. 93/5
11.3 to C de Grandhomme, draws him forward, deceives him in flight, de Grandhomme looks to biff this over the long-off boundary but gets a thick edge as the ball spun away sharply, gleefully accepted by Kohli at slip. Chahal is having a grand party at the moment. KKR continue to slip and slide. 93/6
17.3 to NM Coulter-Nile, tossed up outside off stump, stands his ground this time and meets it at the pitch. Gets good connection too as he drives this flat, but that is his undoing in the end. Not enough to clear ABD at long-off who hops up gracefully and takes the offering mid-air. 125/8
17.4 to SA Yadav, Negi will have a hat-trick ball at No. 11. This is good length, off stump, and it meets with a wild heave with no feet movement. Problem for Yadav is, it has met the heave on the leading edge. Lobs up for Mills who takes it too easy at short third man, fumbles and takes on the second attempt. 125/9

Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Virat Kohli, 0.3 ov), 2-3 (Mandeep Singh, 1.2 ov), 3-12 (AB de Villiers, 2.3 ov), 4-24 (Kedar Jadhav, 4.1 ov), 5-40 (Chris Gayle, 6.2 ov), 6-40 (Stuart Binny, 6.5 ov), 7-42 (Pawan Negi, 7.3 ov), 8-44 (Samuel Badree, 8.3 ov), 9-48 (Tymal Mills, 9.1 ov), 10-49 (Yuzvendra Chahal, 9.4 ov)
0.3 to V Kohli, they've snuffed out Kohli for a first-ball duck. He's livid with the shot, Gambhir and KKR are pumped. Eden roars. This is full outside off, the ball moves away a wee bit, Kohli shapes for the drive away from the body but is late on the stroke and Pandey takes it on the second attempt at a wide second slip.. 2/1
2.3 to AB de Villiers, oh, dear. What is happening at Eden? AB tries to fetch a pull from outside off and the extra pace of Coulter-Nile doe the trick as AB top-edges the pull to Uthappa behind the stumps. The bottom hand came off the glove as he completed the pull, the ball was swirling for a long time, Uthappa called for it and pouched it cleanly on the dive. That delivery was a shade under 150 clicks . 12/3
4.1 to KM Jadhav, chips it straight to mid-on. Did the ball stop on him? The length ball angles back in, Jadhav was looking to whip this towards midwicket but the bounce meant it hit him on the top part of the bat and mid-on took a dolly. RCB in tatters.. 24/4
1.2 to Mandeep Singh, width and he's cut that straight to Pandey at point. RCB are making a mess of this or what? He picked the length early but looked like he checked his shot, almost steered it into the hands of the fielder.. 3/2
6.2 to CH Gayle, look to muscle the pull over midwicket, but skews it straight to mid-off. Once again the pace doing the trick for KKR. Gayle clearly late on the shot, didn't get any power behind that whatsoever and it turned out to be a dolly. RCB slip and slide further. You can't take Coulter-Nile away from the action tonight, can you?. 40/5
6.5 to STR Binny, got him. Flirting at that length ball with an angled bat, super seam position from Woakes as the deviation takes the edge through to Uthappa. Absolute carnage. This was Binny's chance to a win a game for his side, won't happen tonight.. 40/6
8.3 to S Badree, gets this to angle back in full on the stumps from wide of the crease, Badree plays down the wrong line. The ball misses the inside edge to hit him on the pad. Would've smashed the middle of middle.. 44/8
7.3 to P Negi, Got the previous one to slant away, brought this back in to nail him. Super. Negi looks to work across the line when he should have been looking to play straighter. Once he missed, he was a dead duck. Eden Gardens roars. RCB in danger of being bowled out for the lowest-ever IPL score . 42/7
9.1 to TS Mills, another nothing shot and gone! Length ball outside off, he looks to wallop this across the line over midwicket but miscues it towards mid-off. Kuldeep sprints in from long-off, calls clearly to keep the cover fielder off, settles underneath it and takes it on the move. Superb. 48/9
9.4 to YS Chahal, pokes at a length ball going away with an angled bat, gets an edge that flies low to Pandey who dives to his left to complete a stunning catch. What a capitulation this. RCB bundled out for the lowest score in IPL history. . 49/10
