Fall of wickets: 1-90 (Devdutt Padikkal, 10.6 ov), 2-90 (Aaron Finch, 11.1 ov), 3-123 (Virat Kohli, 15.5 ov), 4-162 (AB de Villiers, 19.3 ov), 5-163 (Shivam Dube, 19.6 ov)
15.5 to V Kohli, taken at deep midwicket. Length ball at middle stump, hangs back and looks to slog that over the midwicket boundary. It's come off the inside half and Rashid settles comfortably underneath that to take the catch. His first real attempt at clearing the boundary today and it doesn't come off. A nice little comeback has happened from Natarajan this evening after his first over. 123/3
10.6 to D Padikkal, bowled him! And a big celebration from Shankar. He has his man. Full and slanted into leg stump. He gets the front leg out of the way and looks to clobber that into the leg side stands. Misses and loses his stumps. No one will fault him for that shot. He's more than done the work tonight. His last few balls were a struggle, but the pace has been set. 90/1
11.1 to AJ Finch, that is plumb. Or looks plumb anyway. Two in two for SRH. Full and in at middle stump. Finch plants the front leg well across and looks to sweep him. Caught in front of middle stump. Didn't come off at all for Finch tonight. That looked like a carrom ball from Sharma. Certianly the knuckles involved anyway. Seam pointed towards first slip.. 90/2

TOTAL19.4 Ov (RR: 7.77)153
Fall of wickets: 1-18 (David Warner, 1.4 ov), 2-89 (Manish Pandey, 11.6 ov), 3-121 (Jonny Bairstow, 15.2 ov), 4-121 (Vijay Shankar, 15.3 ov), 5-129 (Priyam Garg, 16.3 ov), 6-135 (Abhishek Sharma, 16.6 ov), 7-141 (Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 17.4 ov), 8-142 (Rashid Khan, 17.6 ov), 9-143 (Mitchell Marsh, 18.2 ov), 10-153 (Sandeep Sharma, 19.4 ov)
19.4 to Sandeep Sharma, taken at long-on! That's the win for RCB. Sandeep with a sweet connection, but Kohli tracks backwards and leaps to grab on to that. Short ball, good pull, but Sunrisers will lose by 10 runs. 153/10
17.4 to B Kumar, knocks the middle stump out! Full, straight, too fast for Bhuvi. Top class. Looking to drive that to long-on with a straight bat, not a lot wrong with the attempt. It's just too fast for him. 141/7
17.6 to Rashid Khan, tonks off stump! Full and honing in at off stump. Nothing adventurous about this shot either, just an attempted drive. But Saini is rapid. Just too good. He has done his job to perfection. 142/8
11.6 to MK Pandey, oh but he gifts one next ball! Full and loopy outside off, looks to loft him over long-off. Gets nowhere near enough connection. Saini takes it some 10-15 yards inside. A tired, lazy shot at best, that one. 89/2
15.2 to JM Bairstow, bowled him! Oh boy oh boy oh boy, what was Bairstow thinking there? Look for your Fazeer Mohammed clips because this is fully deserving of an animated "why did he dooo thaaat?" Full floaty ball at leg stump, gets the front leg into the leg side and unleashes the most ungainly heave and misses entirely. Leg stump takes a knock and RCB will suddenly feel energised with the inexperience coming for SRH. Top knock from YJB until that ball. 121/3
15.3 to V Shankar, bowled him with an absolute beauty! Wow! Sensational! Googly lobbed right up, just outside off. Shankar looked completely out of sorts, playing for the turn and looking to drive on the off side. Huge, huge gap between bat and pad and middle stump takes a tonk. What a delivery. And what a player he is for RCB, keeping them in it again and again and again. 121/4
16.3 to PK Garg, bat, onto helmet, onto stumps! Length ball outside off, walks into the off side and looks for the ramp. It's off the leading edge, onto his grille, and then it lobs onto off stump. This chase is coming completely apart now. 129/5
18.2 to MR Marsh, holes out to long-on. Smart bowling from Dube. Making him fetch that from outside off, because foot movement is out of the question. Slower ball, looping outside off. Comes off the toe-end and that's that for Marsh. Can barely stay on his feet and off he goes with the physio for support. 143/9
