TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.20)164/5
Fall of wickets: 1-88 (Shikhar Dhawan, 10.1 ov), 2-101 (Prithvi Shaw, 11.2 ov), 3-108 (Rishabh Pant, 12.4 ov), 4-143 (Shreyas Iyer, 17.4 ov), 5-164 (Shimron Hetmyer, 19.6 ov)
17.4 to SS Iyer, holes out to long-on! Looks to loft that full-toss outside off, as Siraj bowls with a scrambled seam. Iyer is across off again to try and lift that, but gets that off the bottom of the bat to find the long-on fielder, who doesn't have to move a step. 143/4
19.6 to SO Hetmyer, finds deep midwicket! Kohli takes it a little late to his left though after he ran in a bit too much to his right. Siraj bowls a full-toss on middle, as Hetmyer looks to slog that, but gets that off the higher side of the bat. 164/5
11.2 to PP Shaw, got him, Shaw falls two short of his fifty. A bit of loop here, brave bowling from Chahal, and Shaw was looking to hit over extra-cover. But the ball dips on him a little, and then turns, and he ends up slicing it squarer than intended, to the man at sweeper cover, who takes the ball on the third attempt while falling forward. It slipped out of his hands, but it hit his thighs rather than fall to the floor, and he managed to hold on thereafter. George Garton the fielder. 101/2
10.1 to S Dhawan, slower ball, and that's the first wicket for RCB. Looks to make a bit of room, and Harshal follows him with his angle from around the wicket. Lots of revs on this offcutter, but it doesn't actually turn, just beats Dhawan for lack of pace. Looks to hit down the ground, and ends up spooning it high to mid-off. 88/1
12.4 to RR Pant, extra bounce, and that gets Christian a big wicket. Back of a length, slanting across Pant, and he makes room to try and slap it away through point, but the ball rises and grabs his top edge through to the keeper. 108/3

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.30)166/3
Fall of wickets: 1-3 (Devdutt Padikkal, 0.5 ov), 2-6 (Virat Kohli, 2.1 ov), 3-55 (AB de Villiers, 9.3 ov)
0.5 to D Padikkal, ramped right to third man! It is a short delivery on middle and off, which is angling away a touch. Padikkal lifts his bat very late - almost at the last moment before the ball would have left him - and ends up fending it to Ashwin, who takes it exactly where he is standing. Golden duck for Padikkal. 3/1
2.1 to V Kohli, ends up slicing to mid-on, who moves to his right to gobble that! Looks to launch the full delivery on middle at 146kph, as the bat turns in his hands while looking to go over the in-field. Another blow by Nortje, as Kohli seemed to have been beaten by pace, with the ball coming off the bottom of his bat. 6/2
9.3 to AB de Villiers, caught at deep square leg! Axar pitches it short on middle and leg, and the ball is quicker as well as coming on with the arm. de Villiers pulls, but sends that sailing to the man placed in the deep. 55/3
