...
That's it from us today. Cracking game. We shall be back tomorrow with another great game between the Gujarat Lions and the Delhi Daredevils. Thanks for tuning in. See you tomorrow.
...
Russell, "Very important game for us, had to come back strong after losing. We always back our strengths, it's a pleasure batting with Yusuf as he takes the pressure away. Bowling against Chris, Kohli, Rahul, I was glad with my performance".
...
The man of the match is Russell for his all round performance.
...
Gautam Gambhir said, "Unbelievable knocks from Yusuf and Russell. We conceded too many in the last 3 overs, I love watching Pathan bat and it's always memorable. At this venue, 12 - 13 runs an over can be chased and we knew that they don't have too much depth in the bowling department in the death. Morne and Russell did a good job with the ball, Umesh didn't have a great day, but he's a good bowler. We just need to fix the last few overs".
...
KKR go second in the points table while RCB's fifth defeat leaves them stuck among the bottom three. Who would have thought this would transpire with the RCB!
...
Belief in the KKR dressing room will be sky high as they pull off a miraculous win over arch rivals RCB. They were teetering with 4 wickets down and 93 required in the last 7 overs. They only require 37 of those balls as Russell, first and then Pathan, launch into the RCB attack and finish the job comprehensively. For the RCB bowlers, it was all very positive in the beginning as everything seemed to be clicking but then everything went wrong once Rahul missed the chance to stump Russell.
...
Kohli said, "Nothing much to say. We needed to take our chances there. 104 in 15 overs and we let the game drift our way. We didn't grab the chances we had, especially in Bangalore. I felt we got a good score, 10 over par. You just need to keep your boys motivated and anything is possible in this league."
...
19.1 Sreenath Arvind to Suryakumar Yadav, FOUR, angled into the pads, Surya flicks it with ease over square leg, GAME SET and MATCH! In the end KKR win in a canter! Yusuf jumps and exults in delight, Kohli can only offer a meek smile, he then gives Yusuf a warm hug. Gambhir has gone wild in the dugout. Contrasting emotions.
...
Arvind!
...
Horror day for Shamsi as he concedes 51 runs in his 4 overs with no wickets. 1 run required at 0.166 runs an over.
...
18.6 Shamsi to Suryakumar Yadav, 1 run, back of a length and Surya steps back and then drives to long on. 1 run needed now!
...
18.5 Shamsi to Suryakumar Yadav, no run, outside off, edged and another DROP by Rahul.
...
18.4 Shamsi to Suryakumar Yadav, FOUR, down the leg side, Surya bends down low and then sweeps it past short fine leg!
...
18.3 Shamsi to Yusuf Pathan, 1 run, on off, Yusuf drives it to deep mid-wicket.
...
18.2 Shamsi to Yusuf Pathan, FOUR, flat and quick, Yusuf just guides it to third man, deft!
...
18.1 Shamsi to Yusuf Pathan, SIX, full outside off, Yusuf plants his front foot and smacks it over long off! 50 for Pathan with 5 fours and 3 sixes. A special innings, a throwback almost.
...
Shamsi. Pressure on him.
...
4 overs - 27 runs - 2 wickets for Chahal on a night he will remember. However, the game is in KKR's grasp with just 17 required off the last 2 overs.
...
17.6 Chahal to Yusuf Pathan, 1 run, on a length, Pathan backs away and cuts it to sweeper cover. Chahal completes his spell, incredible from the young leggie.
...
17.5 Chahal to Yusuf Pathan, 2 runs, Pathan on the backfoot plays it to mid-wicket for an easy brace.
...
17.4 Chahal to Suryakumar Yadav, 1 run, on a length and driven to long off.
...
Suryakumar Yadav.
...
17.3 Chahal to Andre Russell, OUT, wide outside off, and for once Russell mistimes a ball to a fielder inside the playing area, Binny pouches the ball at sweeper cover. Even if RCB end up losing this, Chahal deserved this wicket. Has been very brave and rewarded. Russell has probably done his job though. Came in, took a while to settle but then launched into the RCB attack.
...
17.2 Chahal to Yusuf Pathan, 1 run, flighted ball, Yusuf goes for the swipe over mid-wicket, bottom edge of the bat to the off side.
...
17.1 Chahal to Andre Russell, 1 run, slightly short, Russell blasts it to deep mid-wicket.
