Good start for LSG

Siddharth starts for Lucknow and it’s a slow start for RCB. Just three runs come from the over as it’s 3/0.

Second innings..

This looks like a slow wicket and it should be a tough chase for RCB here. All eyes on Kohli here.

RCB can breathe a sigh of relief. Topley removes de Kock for 81, as LSG are 143/4 in 17 overs.

Dayal on fire

Yash Dayal comes up with a solid over as he gives away only three runs. Where could LSG end? It’s 132/3 in 15 overs.

Pacers struggling

de Kock and Stoinis slam sixes against Green and it’s clear, any pace on offer in this pitch, batsmen will make hay. Expensive over comes to an end, as LSG 121/2 after 13 overs.

Spinners going well

The spinners have been slowing down things for RCB. LSG are struggling to get a move on. But in the meantime, de Kock completes his fifty in 36 balls. It’s 102/2 in 12 overs.

RCB in control

Anything under 180 on this ground would be difficult for LSG to defend. And so far, it’s looking like, they’ll end up below that. It’s 89/2 after 10.4 overs.

Devdutt Padikkal’s lean patch continues

Padikkal has been sent back by Mohammed Siraj, making just 6 of 11 balls.

LSG giving away initiative

The last few overs have been quite slow for Lucknow. As another over comes to an end, LSG move to 62/1 after 8 overs.

Living dangerously

De Kock is going for the kill, and is giving a few chances here and there. He needs to be careful as Maxwell nearly pulled off a blinder. LSG 59/1 after 7 overs.

Maxi continues

This time, Rahul goes for a slog sweep, and he is nearly caught in the deep by Patidar. But the ball bounces from his hand for a six. But he gives it up, and is caught on the very next ball. He’s gone for 20. LSG 53/1.

RCB slowing things down

A few dots means that RCB has made a decent comeback. But then, they still haven’t been able to pick up a wicket. Rahul comes up with a six, and make it two. It’s 46/0 after 5 overs.

4th change

Now Glenn Maxwell comes into the attack. It has been a good start by the spinner. Rahul hasn’t got going so far. After 4 overs it’s 36/0.

Now Siraj

In the third over, there’s another change in the bowling. Siraj comes on. And de Kock pulls now, for a six. Excellent start by LSG here. Make it two in two. It’s 32/0 after 3 overs.

Dayal from the other end

And from the other end we have Yash Dayal. The bowler bowls one full and is driven for a four by De Kock. Another expensive over as LSG are 19/0 after 2 overs.

Topley starts well

The pitch is green in patches, and one doesn’t know how the pitch will behave. de Kock edges one for a four. Make that two more, as De Kock looks in full flow now. It’s 12/0 after 1 over.

And here we go..

Straight up, Reece Topley starts the bowling for RCB. This is a big change for the team here. Hope they get some desired results.

Faf says..

We are going to chase. The previous game we played on here first innings it was slower. Some places it is patchy and dry. It really important to find some answers. We have had some really good conversations. It would be good if you keep learning from the mistakes. There is a touch of moisture and let’s see how it goes. Topley comes in for Alzarri.
