Isuru Udana4040110.0054110
9.4 to S Dhawan, Dhawan perishes looking for the big hit. Gets a length ball, sees he can hit a six, but is slightly early into the shot. The bat face closes a little, and he doesn't get enough power into it. Caught at long-on. 82/2
Washington Sundar402005.0091000
Navdeep Saini3048016.0045301
Yuzvendra Chahal302909.6643100
Mohammed Siraj403428.50114111
6.4 to PP Shaw, Kohli's shouts of "come on" echo in the empty stadium. Shaw has gloves Siraj through to AB. Good short ball. Quick, high, and into the body. Shaw goes for the attacking option, but it surprises him with the pace, and kisses the glove/top part of the bat on the way through. 68/1
18.2 to RR Pant, timber. Pant looks for the big hit over the leg side as Saini pitches short. He is deep in the crease and gives this his all. Siraj, though, has bowled a slower ball, and Pant only gets a bottom edge onto the stumps. 179/4
Moeen Ali2021110.5021120
11.3 to SS Iyer, Paddikal takes a superb catch at deep midwicket. Another team change works. Ali gets some dip on this, which means Iyer's attempt at hitting a six has more height than length on it. Paddikal, a tall man, sets himself up at the midwicket fence, takes the catch, lobs the ball back up as he falls over, steps out, comes back in, completes the catch. Calm as. 90/3

Kagiso Rabada402446.0092020
13.3 to V Kohli, that is the game. Kohli has left himself too much to do. Now he is obliged to slog at the best bowler. Gets a bottom edge, which carries to the keeper. He will have to review how he misread the pitch and went pace, pace, pace. Then he was pretty much forced to show no intent against spin because of the grip on the surface and the three wickets lost inside the Powerplay. 94/5
15.6 to Washington Sundar, slower bouncer, and that produces the wicket. Rabada has his share of two again. Easy as. Cramps him up too with it, and he gets no power into the pull. Caught at midwicket. 115/6
17.1 to S Dube, straight quick length ball. Bude swings in Abu Dhabi, Rabada hits the wicket in Dubai. This is becoming a huge NRR blip for RCB. Oh hang on. We are checking if DC had four inside the circle. Ashwin might be the culprit here. Did he charge in enough to be inside the circle when the ball is delivered? Ashwin is fielding at midwicket. Just outside the circle with Rabada three steps from bowling. Now we get a new angle, and Ashwin is on the line when Rabada releases the ball. So this shouldn't be a no-ball. fair delivery. Dube stays out. 118/7
17.3 to I Udana, slower ball to Udana, not to Saini. And he gets a top edge as he backs away. Taken at extra cover. 119/8
Anrich Nortje402225.50133010
5.5 to AB de Villiers, finally someone takes a catch. A huge "come on" is belted out by someone. Short of a length, quick, nearing 150ks, and de Villiers is hurried into the pull. The top edge goes higher than the ring-of-fire lights, but Dhawan settles under it and takes it. And then comes out the thigh-five. 43/3
18.6 to Mohammed Siraj, full and straight, Siraj is off the cut strip trying to make room. He hits the base of the middle stump. 127/9
Ravichandran Ashwin402616.5091110
2.6 to D Padikkal, down the wicket, Padikkal shows lack of experience. Ashwin makes him play the shot he doesn't want to play. Slows down the ball, goes a touch wider, makes him drag it to leg where deep midwicket is waiting. Padikkal wants to hit long-on, but he has let a master offspinner make him play the shot he wants him to play. 20/1
Axar Patel401824.50101000
3.6 to AJ Finch, lovely lovely bowling. He knows there is turn on offer so he is bowling slower and flighting them. It dips to create the gap between where the ball pitches and Finch's reach. And then it turns to take the outside edge for Pant to catch. 27/2
11.6 to MM Ali, and Ali is forced to take on the big side of the boundary for some impetus. He has no choice with Kohli setting himself up Dhoni style for the back end. Axar cramps him up with a low full toss. Perhaps a yorker but Ali has turned this into a fullie by jumping out of the crase. Hits it only as far as deep midwicket. 75/4
