  • Right, we're done with this! Bangalore get important two points with their 3rd 10-wicket win in the League, and the NRR will surely come into play later on, which is also a big boost. They'll surely be happy and take the momentum from this. Punjab slip to 5th place and have lost yet another game at home. That makes it 5 losses out of their last 6. They need to get their act together, and fast. Anyway, the action continues as on 15th May, Kolkata host Rajasthan at Eden Gardens at 2000 local (1430 GMT). Another crucial encounter in the context of the season. Do join in for that. See you then, folks!
  • Umesh Yadav is declared as the Man of the Match. He scalped 3 wickets in his 4-over spell, which included the likes of Chris Gayle and KL Rahul.
  • A poor performance from Punjab. Plain and simple. The batsmen heavily let them down. If your highest scorer has just 26, then that should say everything right there. In an attempt to score 200, you often end up less than 100, and that's what happened here. No sensibility was shown from the Punjab batsmen and it proved to be their undoing. The bowlers were left with no chance. Their performance tonight becomes irrelevant. A lot to ponder for Ravichandran Ashwin and his side.
  • An emphatic and a much-needed victory for Bangalore. They had to win, a clinical performance was needed and it came, in all departments. Skipper Kohli would be quite pleased at this. First, they did the job with the ball, where Umesh Yadav was the spearhead picking up 3 wickets. And then, with a paltry target of 89 to chase, the two openers, Kohli and Parthiv, finished things off with absolute ease. Well inside 9 overs. This will do a world of good to their confidence and significantly better their NRR.
  • 8.1FOUR! It's a boundary, but no half century for Virat Kohli. Falls just short of it. Short ball, he swings hard and gets a big top edge over the keeper's head, to the fence behind. BANGALORE WIN BY 10 WICKETS!
  • 8.1No ball! The match could have been over, but Kohli doesn't take the extra run. Wants to try and get to his fifty. He hits the high full toss down to long off where Andrew Tye drops the catch. Free Hit coming up...
  • Ankit Rajpoot brought on. Probably the last over of the match.
  • 7.6Single to end the over. Kohli pushes it to long on and retains strike. 2 runs to win, but he's on 44. A biggie and he gets to fifty. Will he do it? 87/0
  • 7.5Shortish in length, pulled behind square leg for one.
  • 7.4FOUR! Beautiful. Back of a length outside off, Parthiv plays the ramp shot over the vacant slip cordon. Plays it quite fine, it runs away to the fence.
  • 7.3Cleverly takes the pace off this one, Parthiv doesn't pick it up and swings across the line way too early. Misses it altogether.
  • 7.2Shortish in length, well outside off, slapped to long off by walking out of the crease. Comfortable run earned.
  • 7.1Easily run down to third man. It's on a length, PP opens the face and takes a single in that area.
  • Strategic break.
  • 6.6FOUR! Shot! Hit with authority. Back of a length, Kohli plays a front foot pull shot. Muscles it over mid-wicket, leaving the man in the deep with no chance. Superb. Bangalore are just 10 runs away from a handsome win. 79/0
  • 6.5Skidding off the deck, touch fuller on middle and leg, catches Patel on the pads as he misses his flick. It pitched outside leg, so the umpire isn't interested. A leg bye taken as the ball rolls over on the off side.
  • 6.4Good effort from Agarwal out in the deep. Was always a difficult chance. Parthiv swivels and lifts this over mid-wicket. Mayank out in the deep, runs in and dives forward to get his hands to it. Just gets his fingertips on it, but it slips through. A couple added to the scoreboard.
  • 6.3Quite full on off, pushed to long on for a run.
  • 6.2FOUR! Pure timing, that. Didn't have to use any kind of force at all. Short and wide outside off, Kohli steers this past point with an angled bat. Nobody out there in the deep, so it'll be a boundary.
  • 6.1Short of a good length on middle and off, swung down the ground to long on for a single.
  • Marcus Stoinis comes on to have a go with the ball.
  • 5.6SIX! Talk about elegance, this man is on top of it! In the arc for the skipper. With a beautiful bat extension, he lifts it over wide mid off. It is going, going and hits the advertising boards. A sublime strike from Kohli. A brilliant Powerplay for Bangalore, the game is already done and dusted. 66/0
  • 5.5FOUR! There is still space for finesse in this dynamic format of the game! Back of a length ball outside off, Kohli glides it nicely past the left side of the diving short third man fielder.
  • 5.4Well-directed short ball around middle and leg, Kohli takes evasive action. Looks towards the square leg umpire but doesn't get any response. The height was alright there.
  • 5.3Fullish delivery on middle and leg, Patel goes for a whip but mistimes it through mid-wicket. A single taken.
  • 5.2Slightly overpitched around off, Kohli with a confident stride forward milks it down to long on to rotate strike.
  • 5.1Full length ball outside off, driven crisply to the man at covers.
  • 4.6FOUR! 15 off the over. From the way things are going, this will be over before the halfway mark. On the hips, Parthiv whips this through backward square leg, beating the dive from the fielder in the deep. 54/0
  • 4.5FOUR! An awkward shot from Parthiv, but effective all the same. Only thing that matters. Slower short ball from Mohit, Patel is early into the pull shot, but then somehow adjusts to get it away. It's past short fine leg and away to the boundary line.
  • 4.4Full toss attacking the stumps, flicked comfortably through to deep mid-wicket. Single taken.
  • 4.3Fraction straight in line, easy enough for the batsman to work it to backward square leg. One run collected.
  • 4.2FOUR! That's smashed by Parthiv Patel! Full and wide, there and begging to be put away, Parthiv obliges and thumps it through cover-point. No stopping that, super shot.
  • 4.1On a back of a length from Mohit, it's the cutter, Kohli stands tall and works it away through mid-wicket for one.
  • Mohit Sharma brought into the bowling attack.
  • 3.6Length delivery close to off, Parthiv gets an inside edge on the leg side, towards short fine leg. 39/0
  • 3.5Safe! Clearly missing leg. Bit of a desperate attempt from Punjab, can't blame them to be honest given the situation they're in. Tye angles in a fuller length ball on middle and leg, it keeps coming in and raps Kohli on the front pad. The ball lobs over on the off side, the batsmen take a leg bye but Ashwin reviews it, as there is no response from the umpire on the lbw appeal. It's gone upstairs and replays show the ball was going to miss the leg stump.
  • Review taken. It's for an lbw appeal against Virat Kohli. Possibly sliding down leg? Let's see...
  • 3.4Bumper from Tye, VK ducks and evades.
  • 3.3Back of a length around off, the left-hander slaps the pull to mid on for a quick run.
  • 3.2Big swing and a miss from Parthiv Patel. Had some width on offer outside off, he makes some room and attempts to thrash this over the covers. Only connects with thin air.
  • 3.1Slower ball, marginally ahead of a length, Virat Kohli skips down the track and pushes it gently in front of covers. Hares to the other end and complete the run.
  • 2.6Dot ball to end the over, but 16 runs have come off it. Bangalore will be mighty pleased with this start. Length delivery outside the line of off stump, Parthiv has a poke at it and gets beaten. 36/0
  • 2.5Dropped! Slightly difficult chance though. Once again the Bangalore skipper gives the charge and takes it on the full. Takes it off the toe end and chips it towards mid off. Finch there moves to his right and gets a hand to it, but can't hold on. Single taken.
  • 2.4FOUR! Another one! Kohli in a totally aggressive mood here. Probably has the NRR in mind. Dances down to this length ball around off and slices it over point. Clears the infield with ease and finds the fence.
  • 2.4Wide! Keeps it full again, but it's down the leg side. Wide signalled by the umpire.
  • 2.3Dot ball. Full from Rajpoot, it's driven to the man at mid on.
  • 2.2FOUR! 10 off the first 2. Kohli going for it. On the shorter side of the length, on the stumps, Kohli pulls this with a little swivel through mid-wicket for a boundary.
  • 2.1SIX! There he goes! Welcomes Rajpoot with a big hit. Length ball, Kohli moves inside the line and heaves it into the mid-wicket stands. Sweet connection on that. Superb timing.
  • Ankit Rajpoot into the attack.
  • 1.6Played square through point for two more. 11 off the over, Bangalore are in a hurry to finish things off quickly. 20/0
  • 1.5FOUR! Full and outside off, this time Parthiv crashes it through the covers to send it across the rope.
  • 1.4FOUR! That's a freebie! On the pads and full in length, Parthiv flicks it past short fine leg for a boundary.
  • 1.3That was close! Kohli works it towards mid on and charges to the other end. Ashwin gets to the ball, fires it at the bowler's end and misses. Had he hit, Virat would have been gone. Close call.
  • 1.2Back of a length outside off, punched off the back foot to point.
  • 1.1Starts off with a fullish ball on off, Kohli closes the face a little early to flick so ends up spooning a safe leading edge to cover-point.
  • Andrew Tye to bowl from the other end.
  • 0.6FOUR! First boundary of the innings. 9 off the over. Ashwin bowls it quicker on the pads, Parthiv backs away and flicks it well through mid-wicket to find the fence. 9/0
  • 0.5Picks this fullish ball off his pads and clips it through the vacant square leg area for a run.
  • 0.4Back to around the wicket, it's shorter and spinning away on off, Parthiv goes back and slaps it to mid off. Another brisk one stolen.
  • 0.3Fired full and outside off from over the wicket, wristed to long on for one more.
  • 0.2Sliding in from around the wicket, on a fuller length, Parthiv punches it towards wide mid off and takes a quick single.
  • 0.1Tossed up on the pads, Kohli comfortably gets off the mark with a little flick down towards wide long on. Single taken.
  • We are back for the chase. It should be a comfortable one for the tourists. Only a complete meltdown would see them not getting across the finish line, which seems highly unlikely. Parthiv Patel and Virat Kohli will open the innings, while Ravichandran Ashwin takes the ball first up. A slip in place. Here we go...
