WICKET! Run-out! Taha is gone! What a throw by KP Appanna. But horrendous running by Taha. He slowed down before he reached the crease. However, the wicket might be a little too late.

Cariappa gets his man only to find out it was a no-ball. Oops!

A tight over by Cariappa once again and another drop catch once again, this time by the wicketkeeper. Cariappa looks extremely disappointed.

Tigers 73-2 after 11 overs
A good over by MG Naveen, conceding just 5 runs. The Tigers could afford this, given the fact that the RRR is just 6 per over.

Cariappa is bowling extremely well here. He will be the key if Bulls are to make a comeback in this game.

A decent over overall, with 8 runs coming off that. The Bulls, however, are in desperate need of a wicket here.

A brilliant start by Cariappa, conceding just 1 run. A loud LBW shout in the last delivery which was not given by the umpire. Cariappa is in disbelief.

Another good over for the batting side. Taha is looking extremely dangerous and it looks like that drop catch is going to cost the Bulls big time.

Tigers 49-1 after 6 overs
A decent over by the bowler despite getting smashed for a first-ball six. Taha is looking solid and striking the ball extremely well.

A good over by Faroouqui. He should have got his man in the first ball, however, Abbas dropped a sitter at deep square leg.

Tigers 28-0 after 3 overs
Another good over for the batting side, with Abhishek getting into his stride now. Will the Tigers run away with this one?

Tigers 21-0 after 2 overs
Just the perfect start for Hubli while chasing a low total, a couple of early boundaries for Taha, who is looking in good touch.

Tigers 12-0 after 1 over
And we are underway with the Hubli openers Mohammed Taha and Abhishek Reddy. KP Appanna has the new ball for the Bulls.
