"It was an absolute pleasure batting with Virat tonight. I love batting at No. 3, get some time to read the pitch and the game. The bowlers have been together for a couple of years, and all of a sudden, there is a very good mixture of youth and experience. It's good to start on a winning note," says De Villiers.
...
AB de Villiers has been adjudged as the Man of the Match, for his knock of 82 off 42 with 7 fours and 6 sixes!
...
Virat Kohli: "I think it was a really good effort by the batsmen to get us to 227 and the bowlers did a really good job. Parvez Rasool is a deceptive bowler and he was troubling the batsmen in the nets as well. Chahal, as far as he gets wickets, I'm okay with him giving away the runs. Rasool was the standout perfomer for me."
...
The YES Bank maximum sixes award goes to AB de Villiers!
...
David Warner: "Cannot take it away from Kohli and AB and then Sarfaraz came in. It is a tough thing to get 228. Nehra has hurt his groin. Mustafizur is fantastic and he is a fantastic find. We had to bat the way know to bat, I would have liked to do more tonight. We have to execute well with the ball and not lose wicket in clumps."
...
David Warner was striking well and the best possible result, but then the innings tapered off after his dismissal.
...
The only blip in today's performance was the dismissal of Chris Gayle, and then they owned the game.
...
A thumping win for the RCB, they are looking very strong and watch out for them. A well rounded team and a good performance.
...
19.6 Watson to Karn Sharma, no run, low full toss, which Sharma misses, and that completes the proceedings for RCB as they win their opener by 45 runs!
...
19.5 Watson to Eoin Morgan, 1 run, outside off and Morgan slaps it towards long off for a single
...
19.4 Watson to Karn Sharma, 1 run, another full toss, and Sharma plays it in the air over mid off but lands safely again!
...
19.3 Watson to Karn Sharma, 2 runs, he tries to play it towards the leg side by slashing across the line, but gets an edge towards long off, where the ball falls safely in between fielders
...
19.2 Watson to Karn Sharma, no run, slower ball again, outside off, Sharma slashes and misses
...
Short third man is in place.
...
19.2 Watson to Karn Sharma, WIDE, slower short ball, but that was perhaps too high!
...
Cheeky from Karn there, he has been good today.
...
19.1 Watson to Karn Sharma, FOUR, full ball on leg, and Sharma just opens the face of the bat and guides it towards third man region for a four
...
Final over now. Shane Watson will bowl it. He has been brilliant with the ball.
...
18.6 Patel to Eoin Morgan, 2 runs, full ball, driven straight down the ground in the gap between long on and long off for a couple of runs
...
Even Gayle is throwing himself in the ground and Kohli is laughing and Gayle manages a smirk too.
...
18.5 Patel to Eoin Morgan, 2 runs, slower short ball way outside off and Morgan turns it towards deep midwicket!
...
18.4 Patel to Eoin Morgan, no run, slower short ball, which Morgan tries to pull, but only manages an under edge onto the pitch
...
18.3 Patel to Eoin Morgan, no run, full ball from around the stumps, and Morgan misses out despite swinging through the line. Well well that was in the slot, but he misses it again.
...
So Eoin Morgan back on strike.
...
18.2 Patel to Karn Sharma, 1 run, slower ball again, short, and pulls towards deep midwicket for a single
...
18.1 Patel to Karn Sharma, FOUR, short ball outside off, Sharma slashes outside off, and the ball flies over the deep cover region for a boundary
...
Karn Sharma has over shadowed Eoin Morgan here, and this is a big statement to make.
...
Harshal Patel in.
...
17.6 Milne to Karn Sharma, 1 run, short ball, a slower one, Sharma misses the ball, but they sneak a bye off the last ball
...
17.5 Milne to Karn Sharma, FOUR, another full toss outside off, which the batsman directs towards backward point this time, for a boundary this time!
...
17.4 Milne to Karn Sharma, no run, high full toss outside off which the batsman misses out on
...
17.3 Milne to Karn Sharma, no run, slower ball, Sharma tries the swipe but misses this time
...
17.2 Milne to Karn Sharma, SIX! Short and wide slower ball outside off and Sharma upper cuts it over backward point for a six! Harsha Patel tried his best but cannot do anything. The ball boy looks at him with a smirk.
...
17.1 Milne to Eoin Morgan, 1 run, driven down towards long off for a single
...
Terrific effort from Adam Milne. SRH just going through the motions. Morgan has been strangely off colour.
...
16.6 Patel to Karn Sharma, no run, Sharma launches it way over deep midwicket, where Milne, after takeing the catch, realizes that he was going over the ropes. He drops the ball inside the field of play just before crossing the ropes. Surprisingly they do not take even one run. It has been that sort of a day for SRH.
...
16.5 Patel to Karn Sharma, no run, short ball again, Karn tries to pull, but misses the ball altogether
...
Tom Moody wears a forlorn look, it has been an off day today.
...
16.4 Patel to Karn Sharma, 2 runs
...
16.3 Patel to Karn Sharma, 2 runs, a short ball, pulled away towards short mid-wicket for a brace. No timing.
...
16.2 Patel to Karn Sharma, no run, a good short ball first up to the new batsman, who ducks underneath it!
...
16.1 Patel to Eoin Morgan, 1 run, full toss outside off, driven towards long off for a single
...
Karn Sharma walks in.
...
Brilliant from Watson, he has been so good with the ball. Reddy did well there but was to much to do. And we have the strategic time out.
...
15.6 Watson to Ashish Reddy, OUT! A yorker by Watson cleans up Reddy's leg stump! Reddy was backing away outside his leg stump, and Watson bowled it dead straight and full, landing the ball just in front of the leg stump, and takes it out!
...
15.5 Watson to Eoin Morgan, 1 run, width again, cut hard, but only for a single down towards deep point
...
15.4 Watson to Eoin Morgan, 2 runs, wide outside off, Morgan launches it i the air, as the ball flies over deep point, where Chahal drops it at the fence! Oh no Chahal, drops the catch. He did all the hard work but grassed it.
...
15.3 Watson to Eoin Morgan, no run, short ball, a good bouncer, as Morgan walks down and tries to hook, but misses. Excellent from Watto. Saw him coming and banged the ball in.
...
15.2 Watson to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, low full toss again, and Morgan slams it over deep midwicket into the gap for a boundary!
