TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.80)176/7
Fall of wickets: 1-18 (Quinton de Kock, 1.4 ov), 2-63 (Brendon McCullum, 8.2 ov), 3-127 (AB de Villiers, 14.2 ov), 4-127 (Virat Kohli, 14.3 ov), 5-154 (Sarfaraz Khan, 18.1 ov), 6-176 (Mandeep Singh, 19.5 ov), 7-176 (Chris Woakes, 19.6 ov)
19.5 to Mandeep Singh, taken on the deep sweeper cover boundary. Full and wide, Mandeep slices the ball off the outside half to the fielder. Just a little more power and that would have been another six. A very tidy cameo from Mandeep, the impetus is now there.. 176/6
19.6 to CR Woakes, a nice slower ball and Russell will take the catch! Two wickets in two balls to finish the over. Woakes is through the shot too early, the ball takes the lower half of the bat and lobs to cover. Russell runs back and takes a good catch.. 176/7
1.4 to Q de Kock, taken at short third man! Another indicator that de Kock did not read Piyush Chawla. A legbreak on middle and off, de Kock looks for a reverse sweep, takes a thick leading edge and lobs to short third man. Legspin comes with extra revolutions and very very often top edges too.. 18/1
8.2 to BB McCullum, gone through McCullum! A short offbreak, McCullum picks the length early, goes back and looks to hit that over midwicket but he was too early through the shot. The ball goes on and hits middle and off stump.. 63/2
18.1 to SN Khan, taken at long-on! Sarfraz picks out the fielder. That was a stumbling, stalling innings. Full outside off, Sarfraz mis-times a lofted drive down the throat of long-on. Kohli isn't happy Sarfraz didn't go through with the shot.. 154/5
14.2 to AB de Villiers, skied! And taken at long on. Another short ball on off, but AB wants to send that into the Ganges river. Tried to muscle this over the leg side, but it's been top edged. Johnson calls for the catch early and takes a swirler. The part-timer has broken the partnership. 127/3
14.3 to V Kohli, yorked! And he's on a hat-trick. It's a full ball on Kohli's toes, and he can't dig it out. He misses the defense and the ball crashes into middle stump. Rana, you beauty! Takes two in two and KKR are right back in it once again. 127/4

TOTAL18.5 Ov (RR: 9.39)177/6
Fall of wickets: 1-16 (Chris Lynn, 1.5 ov), 2-65 (Sunil Narine, 5.2 ov), 3-83 (Robin Uthappa, 7.3 ov), 4-138 (Nitish Rana, 14.3 ov), 5-146 (Rinku Singh, 15.4 ov), 6-164 (Andre Russell, 17.4 ov)
1.5 to CA Lynn, de Villiers takes Lynn! A nice catch. A short, wide delivery outside off. Lynn is too far away from the ball to make adequate contact. All he can do is chip the ball away over cover. But there is enough airtime for AB to run to his left and backwards, his eyes peeled on the ball right through its trajectory and completes the play. Good bowling from Woakes too to bowl that wider. 16/1
15.4 to RK Singh, the third bouncer of the over? It's short again, goes past Rinku's pull again. Kohli thinks there is a definite edge on the pull. So he chooses to review. That is definitely at least the second bouncer of the over? RCB keep bowling bouncers and keep getting away with it, not their fault if the umpires are not calling them, obviously. Replays indicate there is an edge on that, so Rinku will have to go. He should have got at least one no-ball this over, though. I've not seen a single one-bouncer signal from an umpire today.. 146/5
17.4 to AD Russell, Russell holes out! A slower delivery outside off, just inside the tramline. Clears his front leg, and skews the ball off the outside half towards long-off. AB runs back and to his right from mid-off. McCullum runs in from long-on. McCullum will never let the ball go. Nor will AB. They almost collide. But AB takes a good catch eventually.. 164/6
14.3 to N Rana, and given! LBW. But Rana wants to review. That was the drifter. Sliding in through the air, pitches in front of middle and hits him in front of middle. That's relatively plumb. He missed a big sweep that he attempted, the ball was too full to play that stroke. No bat on that. Two reds and juuuust clipping the side of leg stump. A smile on umpire Shamsuddin's face. That was close.. 138/4
5.2 to SP Narine, Umesh strikes! A thick inside edge into off stump. A low full toss outside off, Narine is clearly harried for pace. He looks to drive the ball but he is very late on the shot, a thick inside edge hits off stump and RCB have some relief. A job extremely well done from Narine. He is the only player with two fifties off 17 balls or lesser in IPL.. 65/2
7.3 to RV Uthappa, McCullum takes the catch at backward point. It's a bad shot, short and wide, the ball moving away, Uthappa looks to swat the ball over midwicket but it's the wrong shot. A cut would have been a better shot. But he chose the pull and to add to that, he's hurries on the shot. So the ball takes the splice and lobs up.. 83/3
