11.05pm
RCB-127/9 after 19 overs; need 70 more from 6 balls

10.53pm
RCB 7 down

Rabada strikes! Dube attempts a heave and missed it completely but Rabada did not miss the stumps. Sound of the timber as Dube walks back. RCB seven down.

10.52pm
Excellent over from Nortje

Two singles off the first two balls and then two dots before Dube runs a leg bye. Nortje yet again excellent with his yorkers. He is fast, sharp and disciplined. Just 3 off the over. RCB-118/6 after 17 overs

10.38pm
Excellent over from Rabada!

6 runs and a wicket! The RCB skipper gave in to the rising required rate, attempted a heave and fell. Think that wicket has sealed the win for DC. Mere formalities left now. RCB-97/5 after 14 overs; need 100 runs in 36 balls

10.35pm

RCB-91/4 after 13 overs; need more 106 from 42 balls

10.28pm

Axar finishes his four overs. Both Kohli and Moeen are finding it difficult to play the power shots. Moeen in fact was failing to time the ball and in order to hit the big shot, has perished. RCB in deep trouble, Kohli is the man for them now. Axar finishes with two wickets, top spell from him. RCB-75/4 after 12 overs

10.25pm
Moeen Ali gone; RCB 4 down

Moeen goes for the longest part of the boundary but Moeen Ali finds Shimron Hetmyer in the deep. FOW-76/4

10.23pm
RCB-70/3 after 11 overs

The boundaries have dried up but the batsmen are dealing in doubles, and Kohli is an expert at running between the wickets. However, RCB will need boundaries as the required run-rate is mounting.

10.18pm
RCB-63/3 after 10 overs

The required run-rate has jumped to over 13.5 an over. This will take a special effort from even Virat Kohli to chase this one down. Master of the Chase he’s called. We bet his mind is putting every equation into calculation.

10.13pm
DC-61/3 after 9 overs; need more 136 from 66 balls

Virat gets an under-edge off the fifth and comes back for a brace as the ball runs away towards third man. The skipper retains the strike with a single off the last ball.

10.07pm

Ashwin back on. Moeen joins Kohli in the middle. He needs to go big from the word go and the asking rate is about to touch the 12 mark. He hits a four to Ashwin in the over and RCB need more of them. But just six off the over. RCB-49/3 after 7 overs

10.03pm
End of Powerplay; RCB-43/3 after 6 overs

RCB in great trouble as Anrich Nortje gets the big wicket of AB de Villiers. Yes you read that right, a length ball and De Villiers hits it high up in the air, plenty of time for Shikhar Dhawan to settle under it and complete the catch cleanly. In the end he makes no mistake as RCB lose their third wicke

10.01pm

Hit for a six on the previous delivery and Nortje come back with a short ball, angled in and ABD swung across the line, the ball took the leading edge, went up in the ai, Dhawan caught it safely

Just 5 runs off the opening over as both RCB openers get off the mark. RCB-5/0 after 1 over

9.34pm
Finch dropped in the first over

Padikkal and Finch walks out to bat. Kagiso Rabada to open proceedings for DC.

9.15pm

8.44pm
Outrageous from Saini!

Free-hit coming up but hang on there. Stoinis is in a bit of discomfort. The beamer hit Stoinis right into his left hand knuckle. It was bowled at over 144 km/hour. Surely, that one’s going to sting

8.11pm
DC-78/1 after 9 overs

Shikhar Dhawan would be looking to opening those arms. He’s faced nine dot balls so far which isn’t bad, but in order for the Capitals to continue scoring at this rate, Dhawan needs to bring out the big guns.

8.08pm
DC-75/1 after 8 overs

Sundar finishes his spell. Top stuff from him. Three dots in the over and then three singles on the last three balls. He finishes his spell with figures of 0 for 20. No wickets but he has done his job, pulling things back for RCB with economical overs.

7.38pm

Washington Sundar continues to keep things tight with his bowling. Gives away just three singles off his first over. Dhawan and Shaw just a little circumspect in that over. Bowling change already, Navdeep Saini replaces Udana. DC-14/0 after 2 overs
