All|Overs 1-50
4

to Billings, FOUR, loose delivery. It's drifting onto the pads and all Billings has to do is help it on its way. BLR can ill afford these errors, especially when they're defending a sub-par score

4

to Tare, FOUR, picked away into the leg-side again. searching for swing, pitching it right up, but the ball goes on with the angle and ends up on the pads. He has to adjust his line. Too many freebies

4

to Tare, FOUR, oh well, put the mockers on him there. But again, as soon as he tries to pitch the ball up expecting it to swing, he ends up on the pads. Whipped away gloriously from Tare over square leg

4

Abdulla to Tare, FOUR, that's flown between keeper and slp. Gayle, standng at slp, ddn't even have tme to react. t was too close to cut. Tare made some room and slashed at t off the stumps. Lucky to get away. Not just get away, he's gotten four

W

Mills to Tare, out Bowled!! Mills has struck. A fierce short of length delivery which skids on, keeps a bit low and nips back in from round the wicket. Tare makes room once more and has a slash at it but he's played over the ball by six inches at least. It pummels the off-stump. Tare b Mills 18(17) [4s-3]

4

Mills to Nair, FOUR, climbs from a back of a length, finds the outside edge pretty high up on the bat and runs away to the third man boundary. Nair was driving on the up there. Highly ambitious

W

to Nair, out Bowled!! It's game on here at the Chinnaswamy! Nair has played completely down the wrong line of a full ball and is castled comprehensively. The crowd erupts. Rusty footwork from Nair as he presses forward to drive, the ball didn't seem to do a great deal. Might have held its line a touch if anything. Nair played way inside the line of it, maybe anticipating it to come back. The off and middle stumps are clobbered. Nair b 4(3) [4s-1]

6

to Billings, SIX, oh my days! This is thrilling cricket. Billings goes down low and wallops the reverse-sweep for six. He's known for this. It was right in the slot too after flighted it up

W

Abdulla to Bllngs, out Caught by Stanlake!! Bllngs has been completely outsmarted. What clever bowlng from Abdulla. He entcngly tosses ths on up and ensures to keep t very wde of off. Seeng the flght, Bllngs s lured nto havng a go at t but he's not qute to the ptch of the ball and has to reach out for t. The ball turns away further, lobs up off a thck edge and s taken by Stanlake at backward pont. Bangalore are makng good nroads. Bllngs c Stanlake b Abdulla 25(19) [4s-1 6s-1]

6

Abdulla to Pant, SX, holy smokes, the nerves these guys have got! Frst ball, Pant sashays down the track and wallops the ball over deep md-wcket. He was playng wth the turn, so not a bad opton. But to do that frst ball s somethng else. Ths s a roller-coster, ths match

4

Mills to Pant, FOUR, short of length into the body, Pant swivels across on the back foot and helps the pull behind square. He's placed it in the gap perfectly. Fine leg and deep square leg have no chance. Pant taking Mills on

4

to Samson, FOUR, that's quite the blooper from Mills at third man. He might have taken his eyes off and the ball sneaks through him and over the ropes. Nice little glide from Samson, shouldn't have been anything more than a single

W

to Samson, out Caught by Binny!! rushes Samson and gets rid of him. Really tame dismissal actually. He's pulling on the front foot, the ball is onto him quicker than expected and it hits him right on the splice. It spoons up for an easy catch to long-on. Bangalore keep hitting back, they keep fighting. Samson c Binny b 13(12) [4s-1]

6

to Pant, SIX, that's a really good short ball from . Pant is unable to control the pull as he tries to fetch it over his head and nearly holes out. But these are short boundaries. The ball lobs up to the left of Binny at deep square leg, who runs backwards and leaps across but can only palm it over the ropes

4

Abdulla to Pant, FOUR, yeah, Abdulla s n a fx here. He doesn't want to be bowlng n Abdulla's arc, but there s no one out n the deep to protect the cut ether. He ends up strayng wde of off and Pant slaps t through pont

6

Abdulla to Pant, SX, now he gets closer to off, Pant goes down on one knee and wallops t over wde long-on. Ths s superb battng from the 19-year old. He's puttng Abdulla under tremendous pressure

W

Abdulla to Chrs Morrs, out Lbw!! The ball sldes on wth the arm, clps both the pads and up goes the fnger. Morrs was caught n the crease there to a flat ball from round the wcket, and then he made the mstake of playng across the lne. That would have ht leg-stump. So Bangalore have struck back as soon as Delh threatened to surge ahead. t's been that knd of chase. Chrs Morrs lbw b Abdulla 4(5)

W

to Brathwaite, out Bowled!! 's got him the very next ball and he is absolutely pumped. This is serious drama in Bangalore. A beautifully flighted leg-break which drifts in on leg, the ball dips on Brathwaite, lands away from him as he slogs and sneaks under him. Brathwaite b 1(5)

4

Mills to Pant, FOUR, Pant keeps stroking them beautifully at the other end. He clearly holds the fate of his team now. It's a full ball on off and Pant has timed the pants of it as he flicks it through mid-wicket. The placement is brilliant too

4

to Pat Cummins, FOUR, has erred big-time with the leg-cutter and Cummins gets him away. It's well down the leg-side and Cummins whips it over short fine leg for four. It was so close to clearing the boundary

W

to Pat Cummins, out Bowled!! It swings one way, and then the other. hits back with a vengeance. A good length delivery which is in the slot for the slog, but the ball nips in just a touch to cause the error from Cummins. He chops it back on off an inside edge. The crowd is right in this. Pat Cummins b 6(6) [4s-1]

OT

Mills to Pant, 1 run, beautiful slower ball, it's all the more effective with Mills bowling it. Pant is deceived by the lack of pace and he has to reach out as a result. He skews it right off the toe-end to mid-on. It's fifty for Pant. Superb knock, but he has to go all the way

6

Mills to Pant, SIX, Rishabh Pant, you beauty! This is some stunning cricket we're witnessing here. He takes on the short ball, and pulls it away over the fine leg boundary. It was a thick top-edge there actually but with Mills's pace, it travelled

W

to Pant, out Bowled!! has done it. That is surely the game for the BLR. Pant moves across towards off, may or may not have seen that but he fires it on leg-stump and uproots it. A real valiant effort from Pant comes to an end. He's dragging himself off. Got to feel for him. Pant b 57(36) [4s-3 6s-4]

W

to Nadeem, out Caught&Bowled!! tosses this up and lands it far enough from Nadeem to make him reach out for the slog. The ball turns, takes a thick leading edge and lobs up. doesn't leave it for anyone else, he runs backwards and grabs it so well. Made it look easy there. Nadeem c and b 0(2)

4

to Watson, FOUR, cracking shot, nice way to get going, that should give Watson plenty of confidence, length delivery on his pads, he prods across and clips it in front of square on the on-side, beats the infield and rolls away to the fence

4

to Watson, FOUR, Watson is at his best in the opening slot and he has started well for BLR. On a good length and well outside off, he leans forward, plays with an open face and drives it on the up, beats cover and rolls away to the fence

4

Morris to Watson, FOUR, Cummins makes a mess of a simple stop and concedes a boundary. On a good length and holding its line outside off, Watson went for the big drive, gets a thick edge over backward point. Cummins did all the running, slid and stopped the ball, but it hit his legs and rolled onto the ropes

4

Morris to Gayle, FOUR, creamed, low full-toss from Morris, Gayle waits on it, leans forward and punches it in front of square on the off-side, beats cover-point and rolls away to the fence

4

Cummins to Watson, FOUR, lovely, just a hint of width outside off, Watson made it look bad by arching back slightly, frees his arms and sends the cut scorching behind square on the off-side, beats third man - running to his right

W

Morris to Gayle, out Caught by Samson!! A high full-toss has got rid of the big Jamaican. Gayle looked surprised, was looking to blast it over the top, can't get on top of the ball, it hit him high on the bat and lobbed over Samson at mid-off. He ran back, kept his eyes on the ball even as it landed beyond his shoulder, dives and clutches it with both hands. Chinnaswamy has been stunned into silence as the big man departs. Gayle c Samson b Morris 6(8) [4s-1]

4

Morris to Mandeep, FOUR, that ruins the over for Morris, another full-toss, but this time on Mandeep's pads, he gets inside the line and helps it on its way. Nice way to get going

4

Cummins to Mandeep, FOUR, cracking shot, back of a length and well outside off, Mandeep rides with the bounce and punches it in front of square on the off-side, beats cover and rolls away to the fence

4

Cummins to Mandeep, FOUR, lovely, this is even better, on a good length and just outside off, Singh presses forward, drives it on the up and splits the gap between cover and mid-off. Good early signs for Mandeep

W

Cummins to Mandeep, out Bowled!! Mandeep has chopped on for the second straight time in this tournament. On a length and just outside off, Mandeep saw the width, manufactured a bit more by backing away slightly, went with hard hands on the cut, gets an inside edge that bounces back onto the middle-stump. He was looking very good, but it means nothing now. Another promising start, but nothing more for Mandeep. Mandeep b Cummins 12(10) [4s-3]

6

to Kedar Jadhav, SIX, beautifully played, what made the shot even more special was that he didn't get to the pitch of the ball. It only allowed him to free his arms and lift it inside out over cover, went sailing all the way

W

to Watson, out Stumped!! has deceived Watson completely in the air. Anticipated that Watson was getting itchy and was looking to dominate him, shortened his length and beats Watson in the air, the extra bounce did the trick. Watson was completely flummoxed on the lofted drive and Pant is quick to whip the bails off. BLR are in a spot of bother now. Watson st Pant b 24(24) [4s-4]

4

Cummins to Binny, FOUR, much needed boundary for BLR, on a good length and angling back into the right-hander, he uses the pace on the bat, opens up slightly and shovels it wide of mid-wicket. Mishra put in the dive - but in vain

6

to Kedar Jadhav, SIX, massive, Kedar breaks the shackles, this was well tossed up on off, right into the swinging zone of Kedar, he gets forward and sends it high and into the second tier - over long-on

4

to Kedar Jadhav, FOUR, pushed through flatter and wider of off, Kedar makes room and flat-bats the slap - beats and races away to the fence in a jiffy

4

to Kedar Jadhav, FOUR, cracking shot, tossed up on the stumps, Kedar shimmies down the track, gets close to the ball and lifts it back over the bowler's head, almost went all the way, one bounce and over the ropes

6

to Kedar Jadhav, SIX, 24 from the over. BLR needed something and has gifted them a perfect launching pad. Kedar is in some form alright. This was tossed up slower and wider outside off, Kedar bends down his knees and clubs it high and over long-on, went a long way over the ropes

4

to Kedar Jadhav, FOUR, cracking shot, that's Kedar's own version of MSD's helicopter shot. This was full and on the stumps, Kedar was deep inside the crease as he whipped it wide of mid-wicket, no chance for the man running across from long-on

6

to Kedar Jadhav, SIX, freaky, this is sensational from Kedar, length delivery on off, he makes room by backing away and goes inside out over cover, went all the way over the ropes

OT

to Kedar Jadhav, 2 runs, fifty for Kedar, this has been a superb innings, short and just outside off, he backed away and cut it to the left of point. Billings put in the dive, made the stop and fired in a throw at the striker's end, concedes another run

4

to Kedar Jadhav, FOUR, mistimed shots are finding the gaps now, this was short and on the stumps, Kedar was late on the pull, gets a top-edge - the fielder at square leg was inside the ring and Kedar has managed to get it over his head

W

to Binny, out Caught by Billings!! Lovely shot - but Binny has found deep mid-wicket to perfection. This was full and on his pads, Binny gets forward and whips it beautifully - but unfortunately for him, the placement wasn't right. Straight into the hands of Billings and he doesn't drop those. A small contribution from Binny - but a big wicket under the circumstances for the Delhi. Binny c Billings b 16(18) [4s-1]

4

to Kedar Jadhav, FOUR, smashed, length delivery on the stumps, Kedar backs away and thumps it back over the bowler's head, one bounce and over the ropes

6

to Kedar Jadhav, SIX, cracking shot, he's in some devastating form at the moment - Kedar. Length delivery from , that's a cardinal sin for any bowler. Kedar gets his left leg out of the way and drills it back over the bowler's head, went high and into the top tier of the Chinnaswamy

6

to Vishnu Vinod, SIX, he's done it several times for Kerala - he's showing why BLR picked him up as KL's replacement. Runs down the track, gets close to the ball and lifts it over long-on for a maximum

W

to Vishnu Vinod, out Vishnu Vinod Run Out!! That was completely unnecessary from Vishnu Vinod and it has cost him his wicket. This was a floaty delivery outside off, Vinod got underneath it and drilled it towards extra-cover. Almost a catch to Nadeem, he doesn't go for it though, instead, stops it on the half-volley, the return to the bowler is good and whips the bails off - with Vishnu Vinod miles out of the crease. Vishnu Vinod run out (Nadeem/) 9(5) [6s-1]

W

to Kedar Jadhav, out Caught by Chris Morris!! That's another huge wicket and BLR are losing their way towards the end. Lovely piece of deception from . He followed the slower short ball with another slower ball, rolled his fingers across the seam. Kedar was backing away on the lofted drive, gets it right off the bottom of the bat, plenty of height but not the distance. Morris settles under it and holds on at mid-off. Kedar Jadhav c Chris Morris b 69(37) [4s-5 6s-5]

6

Morris to Negi, SIX, Negi connects one finally! This was the slower full-toss from Morris, Negi backed away, got underneath the delivery and sends it soaring over long-off for a maximum

W

Morris to Negi, out Bowled!! Morris gets his yorker right and Negi's stumps go for a walk. This was fast, this was full and this was on the middle-stump line. Negi backs away on the drive, misses and simply walks back to the pavilion. Negi b Morris 10(8) [6s-1]

W

Morris to Tymal Mills, out Bowled!! Morris gets another wicket with a juicy full-toss. BLR finish with just 157 on the board. Mills made room on the drive, missed and the off-stump goes for a walk. Tymal Mills b Morris 0(3)
