TOSS: KKR won the toss and wanted to bowl first

Skipper Virat Kohli & Parthiv Patel comes out to open for the Bangalore

He is the Best batsmen in the world at the moment. Just look at the runs he had made in the IPL so far 5226 Gee unbelievable talent this guy has! The other guys just have to anchor and see what he is capable of doing!

Mumble jumble!

Parthiv goes off to a big one off Sunil Narine but gets it straight to Nitish Rana where he gobble it on the third attempt. Gee that was funny out there. Parthiv goes out for 11. Akshdeep Nath comes in. RCB 18/1

Slow start for RCB as 50 runs comes up in 7.1 overs

Top edge and gone!

Andre Russell is the man who gets the akshdeep as he tries to pull off a short ball and top edges it where Robbie Uthappa takes an easy catch while escaping collapse with the bowler. that could be nasty but no harm done. He goes for 13. In comes Moeen ali. RCB 59/1

4, 6, 4, 6, wd, 6, and finally wicket!

Skipper Chris Lynn & Sunil Narine comes out to open

Steyn gets the big one!

Gee what a start for Dale Steyn in this year’s IPL. Lynn tries to drive off away swinging delivery uppishly over mid-off but chips it straight to skipper Virat Kohli. He goes for 1. Shubhman Gill comes in. KKR 6/1

Dangerous looking narine goes!

The bouncer that’s what every team does when they have narine one strike. Saini does the same as narine can’t get hold of it and parthiv patel takes an easy one to remove him for 18. KKR 21/2

Woaahh one handed stunner!

Virat Kohli running backwards and gobbles it in the second chance off Steyn as gill goes for 9. KKR 33/3

At the halfway stage KKR 60/3

Terrible innings comes to an end!

As Uthappa has put everyone on immense pressure and did nothing for his team as he goes for a slow 9 off 19 balls. KKR 79/4

The Andre Russell show is on I reckon!

3 consecutive sixes by Russell off chahal and equation is now 93 off 30 balls

50 up as well for Nitish Rana. He is on a different planet I guess. Such a fantastic player he is. But he is never been considered for the Indian cricket team.

43 runs required off 12 balls.

Marcus Stoinis to bowl the pen-ultimate over. No-one can do this impossible thing until and unless you’re Russell. It’s all upon Andre Russell now. Do or die for KKR as they have been losing last 3 games in a row.

3 dots in a row for Stoinis as RCB is in for a win. But we can’t predict the result as still Andre Russell is on the crease.

3 Sixes by Russell and equation is 24 runs required off 6 ball. Moeen ali to bowl the ultimate over.

Dot, 1, 6, wicket, Here comes the wicket! Andre Russell is Runout by Virat Kohli. All over for KKR. Match is on RCB side. What a knock from Nitish Rana 85* but RCB has done it. They have defended a above par score. They keep their hopes alive for playoffs.
