commentary

That was a special knock by Sanju Samson, and to be honest, RAJ needed something like that to overpower the BLR batting might in their backyard. That's all we have from here. We're minutes away from the start of the second encounter of the day. Join us there. This is Sagar Chawla signing off on behalf of Vineet Anantharaman, Nikhil Jadhav, Hariprasad, Abhinand, Ramakrishnan and our scorer Sreenivas.

Virat Kohli: We knew exactly where it went wrong. Having 70 in 10 overs, we were going good with the ball. But giving 140-odd in the last 10 is never a good sign. The wicket was slower than what we played like. We would have loved to have 20 runs lesser to chase. But then, I have never seen a game where four batsmen have got out to half-trackers. There is a lot of belief in the side, even when we needed 85 off the last 5 overs, we had belief. That mindset is important. We had 100 in 10 overs, we were confident and if we hadn't lost two wickets in six balls, things could have been different. No ifs or buts though. First game we were on track, we had our chances today as well. Too early (in the season) to make drastic changes though.

Samson, MoM: Feel very grateful to play this tournament for two months of the year. Playing an innings like this is a dream come true. I'm feeling good, hitting the ball well. Would like to keep up the form and win as many matches as I can. Whatever my team wants me to do, I'll do it - whether it's fielding or keeping.

Rahane, RAJ captain: Feels good. We all know how dangerous BLR are. We were thinking of getting 160-170, wicket was a bit slow. But the way Sanju batted was incredible. It was all about getting that one big partnership. Knee is better. Slight niggle but will be fine. Shreyas bowled really well. We know when you score 200-plus, opponents will come hard. Sanju is a great talent, good to have him in our team. He's the future for India and we back him.

19:34 Local Time, 14:04 GMT, 19:34 IST: At the halfway mark of the chase, BLR seemed to be on course with Kohli going strong and de Villiers joining him at the crease. They were 100/2, completely capable of turning it on - on a Chinnaswamy pitch which had regained its reputation of being a belter. But it was a leg-spinner, as it so often is these days, who turned the game on its head. With two half-trackers, Shreyas Gopal got rid of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers to strangle BLR's hopes. It would have only taken a small trip-up to derail the chase with such a huge target, and this was a lot more than that. While Mandeep and Sundar gave it a shot towards the end, this asking rate was of a different magnitude than either of them were capable of. So Rajasthan are intent on reversing the trend of chasing teams winning. This is their second win in a game where they've batted first - the only two times a team batting first has won in this year's T20 League.

Laughlin to Mandeep, FOUR, just short of the yorker mark, and Mandeep takes toll by hammering it down the ground for four. Really good showing from him, even though in a losing cause
19.3
4
Laughlin to Mandeep, FOUR, slower ball which swings away from Mandeep. He gets down low, uses the swing and slices it past short third man. Wonderful batting
19.2
4
Laughlin to Mandeep, FOUR, gets inside this short of length delivery and helps the pull over short fine leg. It was really well done because this was a slower ball and there really wasn't a lot of pace to work with
19.1
2

Stokes to Washington Sundar, out Bowled!! How unlucky is this for Sundar. He's lapped this full toss right off the bat-face onto middle stump. Walked across, got down low, and set himself up perfectly. But just couldn't get under it unfortunately to gain the elevation needed. Washington Sundar b Stokes 35(19) [4s-1 6s-3]

Stokes to Washington Sundar, THAT'S OUT!! Bowled!!

18.3
0
Stokes to Washington Sundar, no run, huge roar in disapproval of the umpire's decision, but this wasn't even close to a wide. Because Sundar had backed away so far, he wasn't able to reach out to this back of length delivery giving the impression that it might have been a wide
18.2
6
Stokes to Washington Sundar, SIX, now carves this slower ball inside-out for six. Wow. Clean strike from Washington Sundar who picked the variation early and smoked it into the crowd. Brings the crowd to life

17.4
6
Laughlin to Washington Sundar, SIX, parried over the ropes for six! Gowtham was standing around 5 yards inside the boundary, stretched his arm out while back-pedaling but never looked like taking it.

Laughlin to Negi, out Caught by Buttler!! Done in by the off-cutter. Negi tries flicking it through mid-wicket, but there was enough cut on the ball to take a thick outside edge. Good take from Buttler diving forward, should help his bruised confidence. Negi c Buttler b Laughlin 3(4)

Laughlin to Negi, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Ben Laughlin [1.0-0-9-0] is back into the attack

12.3
0
Shreyas Gopal to de Villiers, out Caught by Unadkat!! Shreyas Gopal has turned this game right on its head. First Kohli, and now de Villiers. RAJ should really back themselves from here. Another half-tracker really, but de Villiers doesn't get hold of his pull and hits it straight towards long leg. Unadkat seemed to have misjudged it initially, but he's able to make amends by taking an excellent low catch. Wry smile on de Villiers's face. He could have hit this anywhere. Just not his day. de Villiers c Unadkat b Shreyas Gopal 20(18) [4s-1 6s-1]

Shreyas Gopal to de Villiers, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

11.5
4
Unadkat to de Villiers, FOUR, slower back of length ball again, this time there's a little bit of width which allows AB to carve it away between backward point and short third man. It was uppish, but the placement was spot on

Shreyas Gopal to Kohli, out Caught by D Arcy Short!! He's got him, he's got him. Shreyas Gopal is running around with an arm raised. Pretty much a half-tracker which Kohli pulls in the vicinity of deep mid-wicket. It's D'Arcy Short there, who leaps across for an excellent take. Oh what a game-changer this. Kohli c D Arcy Short b Shreyas Gopal 57(30) [4s-6 6s-2]

Shreyas Gopal, right-arm leg break, comes into the attack

Time-out! Just the ideal start BLR would have wanted in this run chase. But it would be important to see how they play from here on. Need to keep getting those boundaries and keep that required run rate in check. Even though they have scored plenty of boundaries, the required run rate is still more than the present run rate.

5.6
2
Stokes to Kohli, 2 runs, 64 runs off the powerplay! Bowled outside the off-stump channel and Kohli guides it past backward point and ends the over with a couple of runs
5.6

5.5
4
Stokes to Kohli, FOUR, can't bowl such freebies to a batsman of this class. It's a juicy full toss outside off, Kohli brings his bat down in time and angles it past the fielder at point, he's toying with the field here, finding those gaps with ease

3.2

Gowtham to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, McCullum is off the mark and so is BLR, that too in style. Short and wide outside off, Brendon punches it hard towards cover and a misfield by Samson results in a boundary. He has scored 91* but can't take fielding lightly

Brendon McCullum and de Kock are at the crease. Brendon McCullum is on strike. Gowtham will open the attack
