Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-77 (Yashasvi Jaiswal, 8.2 ov), 2-100 (Evin Lewis, 11.1 ov), 3-113 (Mahipal Lomror, 12.5 ov), 4-113 (Sanju Samson, 13.1 ov), 5-117 (Rahul Tewatia, 13.6 ov), 6-127 (Liam Livingstone, 16.2 ov), 7-146 (Riyan Parag, 19.2 ov), 8-146 (Chris Morris, 19.3 ov), 9-149 (Chetan Sakariya, 19.6 ov)
11.1 to E Lewis, top-edge and there's his first wicket! Lewis looks to pull but gets a thick, fat top-edge. KS Bharat called for it, covered good ground to his right and kept his composure to complete the steepler.. 100/2
19.2 to R Parag, wicket No. 24 for Harshal! Riyan's pained existence at the crease is over. Stood deep inside the crease to manufacture the length and go over long-off, but ended up slicing this slower ball to Kohli at extra cover. More pressure on the young man.. 146/7
19.3 to CH Morris, and make that No. 25! Padikkal has taken a superb catch at deep cover. He ran in a tad early, then realised he had to rush back a hint, did so because the ball was absolutely rocketed by Morris, superbly taken in the end on the move.. 146/8
19.6 to C Sakariya, he's dragged this length ball from outside off to AB at long-on. As a fielder, you can't ask for an easier catch. Harshal extends his gap at the top of the wicket-taker's charts. No. 26 for him,.. 149/9
8.2 to YBK Jaiswal, partnership broken for 77! Full ball on off. In the slot too, but Jaiswal is through the attempted lofted shot a bit too early. Mistimed, and can't clear Siraj at mid off! Probably the correct method to play today. Good pitch, some big-hitters in the shed. But Christian has broken what was turning into a very large partnership. 77/1
12.5 to MK Lomror, slides this one across and gets him with the googly! Lomror is looking to whack this over wide long-on, has a big swing but couldn't connect. Didn't even bother looking back. Chahal is making quite a statement. 113/3
16.2 to LS Livingstone, tossed up and he's swung this straight down long-on's throat. Brave from Chahal to toss it up but he did so away from Livingstone's hitting arc. Beautiful bowling, simply superb.. 127/6
13.1 to SV Samson, goes over cover but he's picked out the sweeper. Padikkal barely had to move. Samson hardly got to the pitch but went through with the stroke, it didn't help that he was hitting it to the longer boundary. Royals are sliding.. 113/4
13.6 to R Tewatia, swept uppishly but he's gone! Deep backward square takes a tumbling catch. Extra bounce from Shahbaz because of his height, Tewatia hit it finer than he would've hoped for because it went off the top-edge. Padikkal is the man again.. 117/5

Fall of wickets: 1-48 (Devdutt Padikkal, 5.2 ov), 2-58 (Virat Kohli, 6.5 ov), 3-127 (Srikar Bharat, 15.6 ov)
5.2 to D Padikkal, bowled him! Padikkal falls, and this is the first Rajasthan Royals wicket against RCB this season. Full on off stump. Looks to hammer it over the bowler's head again like the last ball. This time the ball is moving in instead of away. Past the bat, and knocks off stump back. 48/1
15.6 to KS Bharat, Bharat has pulled this straight to fine leg. This one got big on him as he shaped to pull, also skidded through faster, so Bharat got it higher on the bat. Good innings nonetheless.. 127/3
