length around off, Samson looks to go over extra cover but ends up skying it over point, a bit of confusion as the two fielders are unsure who is going for it but Negi in the ends pouches it
That's all from our side for this game. See you soon.
Nikhil Agarwal: "Rajasthan is the most unlucky team in this IPL. Knocked bails 3 times but the bails did not fall completely, Mankading, and lost the final moments of every lost games."
Earlier, Shreyas Gopal dismissed both Kohli and de Villiers once again and, in fact, went on to complete the hat-trick with Stoinis' wicket. In case you are wondering, the hat-trick still stands.
12.24 Guess what? It's raining again and that's it! The game has been called off when we were just ten balls away from a full game. The teams share a point each and that means RCB have been knocked out, even mathematically. However, the result hurts Rajasthan Royals. They would have backed themselves to score those 22 off 10 balls.
fuller outside off and spinning away, Livingstone throws everything at it but it spins away from him, Parthiv cannot collect it neatly and the batsmen take a bye. This should have been a wide though
23 needed from 12. Yuzvendra Chahal
fuller and wider outside off this time, Samson throws his hands at it, gets a thick outside edge between the keeper and the short third man
length ball around middle and off, Samson stands in his crease and just lofts it over long-on, holds his shape and it goes all the way for a six
length outside off and angling across the batsman, Samson looks to hit it through the off side and misses, too wide but the umpire doesn't think so
moves across towards the off side and looks to scoop it away but Khejroliya follows the batsman and bowls it full and wide, Livingstone ends up scooping it on to his pads. They run a single nonetheless
length outside off, backs away and looks to flat-bat it this time, mistimes it towards long-off
length ball, angling away from the batsman but Samson fetches it and pulls it over deep midwicket, just clearing the fielder there
41 needed from 18 balls. Here is Khejroliya
fuller and wider outside off, Livingstone looks to reach for it but cannot put bat on to the ball, a precious dot ball
a slower one, length outside off, Livingstone was early into the shot, looked to heave it on the leg side, the ball hits the toe end and on the bounce to the keeper
length ball around off, goes for the pull but mistimes it towards deep square leg, only a single. More like a drag than a pull
a high full toss and Klaasen almost pulls of a stunner, at cover. Flung himself to his right, got his hand to it when the ball had already passed him but he fails to latch on to
toe-end of the bat but it sails over long-off, all the way for a six. Was short of length outside off, Livingstone went for a tennis-like forehand, got enough on it
Junior: "Batting heavy RCB do not deliver when it matters. Don't deserve to be in the playoffs. Go RR !!!"
length ball around off, Livingstone clears his front leg and clubs it over midwicket, gets four
There were four Rajasthan Royals players but only one Royal Challengers Bangalore play who made it to our list of top-10 players for the week. Did you favourite make the cut?
fuller and wider outside off, steered but straight towards backward point
Ven: "What are the powerplay rules for this 5 overs game?" -- Two overs of Powerplay
length ball at 146.5 kph, on the stumps and hurries on to Samson who looks to pull it away, mistimed towards mid-on
Umesh corrects his line this time, almost a replica of the first ball of the over, short of length outside off and swinging away, Samson looks to hit it through the off side, misses
length but straying on the pads, swiped away by Samson this time, over backward square leg for four
length ball on the body, Samson plays a short-arm pull, off the front foot and smashes it over deep midwicket, utter disdain
length ball outside off, swinging away as Samson looks to hit it on the up but misses. An appeal by the bowler for caught-behind but nothing on the UltraEdge
12.05am Rajasthan need 63 to pick two points. As per IPL Match Playing Conditions, a bowler can bowl a maximum of two overs in game reduced to five to ten overs. But are teams aware of that? Anyway, Umesh will start for RCB. Sanju Samson to face.
