Fall of wickets: 1-19 (Devdutt Padikkal, 2.5 ov), 2-47 (Shahbaz Ahmed, 6.1 ov), 3-91 (Virat Kohli, 12.1 ov), 4-95 (AB de Villiers, 13.4 ov), 5-105 (Washington Sundar, 15.5 ov), 6-109 (Dan Christian, 16.4 ov), 7-136 (Kyle Jamieson, 19.1 ov), 8-149 (Glenn Maxwell, 19.6 ov)
2.5 to D Padikkal, hauled to midwicket! Sharp catch from Nadeem. Padikkal throws his head back and walks off into the dug out. Back of a length and around off, not enough room for Padikkal to have a free swing, he finds the infielder. 19/1
12.1 to V Kohli, Excellent catch in the outfield from Vijay Shankar in his 100th T20. Banged in short on middle, hip-high delivery on middle, not all that short, not all that quick, but the ball isn't coming on, messing with the pull. Spliced into the night sky off a top edge. Vijay sprints in from long leg and snaffles it. He's a fine fielder - has pulled off some blinders as a sub for SRH in the past. Slides on his knees and snaffles it. 91/3
19.1 to KA Jamieson, taken at long-on. Jamieson is backing away. Holder follows him. The plan is to go yorker. It's not the perfect one, which is why the ball goes in the air, but it's close enough to that blockhole that the batsman just can't get enough leverage. Top stuff from Sunrisers.. 136/7
19.6 to GJ Maxwell, caught behind as Holder sticks to his plan - targeting the wide line - and Maxwell slogs wildly, getting a bottom edge through to the keeper. Appropriate finish from a bowling side that's been superb tonight.. 149/8
6.1 to Shahbaz Ahmed, Terrific catch from Rashid Khan. He tears across to his right from deep square leg, slides on his knees, and takes out the pinch-hitter. Ahmed had the license to go after the bowler. He shimmies out of the crease and aims to line-up the left-arm fingerspinner, but drags it away to the leg side. Rashid makes the catch look so very easy. Ahmed can't clear the bigger side of the ground. 47/2
16.4 to DT Christian, Saha belts out an appeal for caught behind. Given out by umpire Gandhe. Christian chats with Maxwell and calls for a review. Very full and very wide of off, Christian reaches out. He throws his bat at ball. He did he nick it? Ultra Edge detects a spike, so umpire Gandhe's decision is upheld. First wicket this match for Natarajan as RCB continue to stumble. 109/6
13.4 to AB de Villiers, Rashid comes back and takes out AB. Kohli and AB fall in successive overs. Shortish legbreak, comes off so very slow, Rashid takes it away from the swinging arc of the batsman. AB throws his bat at a cut and slashes it to Warner at extra-cover. 95/4
15.5 to Washington Sundar, Pandey runs in from long-off, dives forward, and completes another sharp catch. Warner called for more energy in the field - his boys are responding to him. Much fuller and Rashid takes this across from Washington. He aims to slog-sweep this wrong'un against the turn, but ends up splicing it to Pandey who is a spectacular fielder too. 105/5

Fall of wickets: 1-13 (Wriddhiman Saha, 2.2 ov), 2-96 (David Warner, 13.2 ov), 3-115 (Jonny Bairstow, 16.1 ov), 4-115 (Manish Pandey, 16.2 ov), 5-116 (Abdul Samad, 16.6 ov), 6-123 (Vijay Shankar, 17.6 ov), 7-130 (Jason Holder, 18.3 ov), 8-142 (Rashid Khan, 19.4 ov), 9-142 (Shahbaz Nadeem, 19.5 ov)
2.2 to WP Saha, slashed straight to Maxwell at backward point. Short, wide outside off, Siraj gives Saha a chance to free his arms and break free. He cuts firmly but straight into the lap of that infielder. Saha v Siraj: 0 off 8 balls. 13/1
18.3 to JO Holder, Holder picks out long-off. Fullish ball outside off, possibly a slower variation again. Holder prefers hitting down the ground, he ends up slicing a loft to long-off. 130/7
13.2 to DA Warner, Jamieson takes pace off it and takes it away from Warner's swinging arc. Offcutter, grips in the pitch. Warner has to fetch the pull from outside off. He can only drag it straighter than intended to long-on. Warner exits, exposing SRH's suspect middle order. 96/2
17.6 to V Shankar, holes out to Kohli running in at deep midwicket. 113.9ks slower-ball offcutter outside off, deceives Vijay. He picks it up in the air and hits it straight to the RCB captain. SRH are making a mess of this chase. 123/6
19.5 to S Nadeem, Ahmed is in the thick of the action. He runs back from backward point and snaffles it. Offcutter into the pitch. Nadeem makes room outside leg, Patel chases him with that variation and has him holing out. 142/9
16.1 to JM Bairstow, AB calls for it and takes this skier near the midwicket region after tumbling into the turf. Flat and quick, sliding into middle, Bairstow aims to slog-sweep it over the leg side. Instead, he slices it high and AB does the rest with the big gloves. 115/3
16.2 to MK Pandey, two in two for Ahmed. The pressure gets to Pandey and he holes out this time. He dashes out of the crease for the punch over extra-cover. Ahmed held this back and gets it to spin away from the advancing batsman. This sliced hit settles into the hands of Patel at short third man. 115/4
16.6 to Abdul Samad, Triple-wicket over from Ahmed! He takes this return catch and wheels away. Catch him if you can. Sliding into middle, hint of extra bounce, Samad aims to bash it over the leg side with a slog-sweep. Instead, he skews it back to the bowler. He holds his nerve and pouches it. 116/5
