10.6 bowled him! And a big celebration from Shankar. He has his man. Full and slanted into leg stump. He gets the front leg out of the way and looks to clobber that into the leg side stands. Misses and loses his stumps. No one will fault him for that shot. He's more than done the work tonight. His last few balls were a struggle, but the pace has been set 90/1
    11.1 that is plumb. Or looks plumb anyway. Two in two for SRH. Full and in at middle stump. Finch plants the front leg well across and looks to sweep him. Caught in front of middle stump. Didn't come off at all for Finch tonight. That looked like a carrom ball from Sharma. Certianly the knuckles involved anyway. Seam pointed towards first slip. 90/2
    15.5 taken at deep midwicket. Length ball at middle stump, hangs back and looks to slog that over the midwicket boundary. It's come off the inside half and Rashid settles comfortably underneath that to take the catch. His first real attempt at clearing the boundary today and it doesn't come off. A nice little comeback has happened from Natarajan this evening after his first over 123/3
    19.3 sensational work from Pandey at long-off! What a throw. Slower ball just outside off, mistimed punch to his left at long-off. Pandey swoops down on it, winds up his throwing arm and sends it one bounce to the keeper's end, mere inches from the stumps. Bairstow only has to complete a simple movement. Super, super stuff from Pandey. Beats AB's dive 162/4
    19.6 Bairstow runs at the stumps and finishes the run-out. Beaten on the hook, is Dube. Just wanders half-heartedly for the run. Philippe not interested. Bairstow completes the job 163/5

    1.4 he has Warner out backing up! Oh boy, this is huge. Ain't gonne be no spirit of cricket talk tonight for sure. Length ball just outside off, Bairstow absolutley cannons this drive on the up, back at Umesh. Technically, it is a dropped catch. He sticks one hand out and can't hold on, because...well, he's only human. But, the hand is important because Warner is meandering and he is caught well out off the deflections 18/1
    15.2 bowled him! Oh boy oh boy oh boy, what was Bairstow thinking there? Look for your Fazeer Mohammed clips because this is fully deserving of an animated 'why did he dooo thaaat?' Full floaty ball at leg stump, gets the front leg into the leg side and unleashes the most ungainly heave and misses entirely. Leg stump takes a knock and RCB will suddenly feel energised with the inexperience coming for SRH. Top knock from YJB until that ball 121/3
    11.6 oh but he gifts one next ball! Full and loopy outside off, looks to loft him over long-off. Gets nowhere near enough connection. Saini takes it some 10-15 yards inside. A tired, lazy shot at best, that one 89/2
    16.3 bat, onto helmet, onto stumps! Length ball outside off, walks into the off side and looks for the ramp. It's off the leading edge, onto his grille, and then it lobs onto off stump. This chase is coming completely apart now 129/5
    15.3 bowled him with an absolute beauty! Wow! Sensational! Googly lobbed right up, just outside off. Shankar looked completely out of sorts, playing for the turn and looking to drive on the off side. Huge, huge gap between bat and pad and middle stump takes a tonk. What a delivery. And what a player he is for RCB, keeping them in it again and again and again 121/4
    16.6 collision and run out! Rashid Khan is on the floor. It was a cutter, flicked into the leg side. To deep midwicket. They wanted two, they were both ball watching. Sharma had run to the side that would be around the wicket for the right handed bowler to him. Rashid was on the same path at the other end. They were, essentially, headed for each other and in the moment, with the ball-watching, had no idea where the other person was. Sharma was on his feet, and he ran through, so he's the one dismissed. 135/6
    17.6 tonks off stump! Full and honing in at off stump. Nothing adventurous about this shot either, just an attempted drive. But Saini is rapid. Just too good. He has done his job to perfection 142/8
    17.4 knocks the middle stump out! Full, straight, too fast for Bhuvi. Top class. Looking to drive that to long-on with a straight bat, not a lot wrong with the attempt. It's just too fast for him 141/7
    19.4 taken at long-on! That's the win for RCB. Sandeep with a sweet connection, but Kohli tracks backwards and leaps to grab on to that. Short ball, good pull, but Sunrisers will lose by 10 runs 153/10
    18.2 holes out to long-on. Smart bowling from Dube. Making him fetch that from outside off, because foot movement is out of the question. Slower ball, looping outside off. Comes off the toe-end and that's that for Marsh. Can barely stay on his feet and off he goes with the physio for support 143/9
