Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

That’s that, then. RCB bring that dismal losing streak to a close with a pretty comfortable away win against Kings XI Punjab. The action continues, in fact in just a few hours from now, depending on which time zone you are in, right here on ESPNcricinfo. There’s a double-header Sunday to look forward to, and hope you will join us for that. For the moment, on behalf of Ranjith P, Varun Shetty and the rest of the boys and girls at ESPNcricinfo, this is Debayan Sen signing off. Good night and see you all soon!

11.51pm Time for the presentation

Virat Kohli: “Most pleasing thing is coming for an interview at this time of the game. Great feeling to get across the line. Couple of games we should have closed out before this. After so many setbacks, the guys had desire – that’s one word we spoke about. We thought 190 was par, and to restrict them to 170 was a good effort. To pick up four wickets in eight overs in the middle was a good effort. We thought they might go early, but that allowed us to restrict them to 20 or so lesser.”

AB de Villiers gets the player of the match award: “We’ve waited a long time for this one this season. It’s a small step in the right direction but a step nonetheless. I’ve got too much respect for the game to get upset about that (his indifferent form). I know you’re always just one knock away from being in that confident zone. (Not playing international cricket) That’s exactly the reason I have decided not to play international cricket, because I want to be sharp for other tournaments. I get to work with some of the local youngsters, which gives me great motivation. (On Dale Steyn) It’s a great move to get Dale. One day we will get 200 percent, because he gives so much in every ball he bowls. We have to win every game from here on. The next step is Mumbai, and we love playing at the Wankhede.”

Lohith: “With dew factor getting worse each day, defending has become a nightmare for teams. Toss has become sooo important ” — Has always been the case, especially since evening games became the norm rather than the exception. Gets worse in winter, especially in north Indian venues like Mohali. The ball becomes a bar of soap, pretty much!

Dhilip: “I am RCB’ian . usually long gone before match was over. .now just reading all the comments. slowly. I know this is just one win. But u can’t understand the feel if you r not RCB’ian”

hani: “But if they won every match from here wouldnt there be 16 points” — Indeed, those numbers just to emphasise that even 14 points have been enough in the past. Meanwhile Asad has other prioriites, “Happy for King XI loss. Now Sunrisers will win the match and jump to 2nd from 6th on points table, provided KKR also lose tomorrow earlier in the day. That will be some achievement. ”

Mohideen Abdul : “Finally…. Rcb seen 2 points After 7 consecutive defeats (last year last match also lost) ”

R Ashwin: “(On using Sarfaraz) I thought the leggie might have a good chance of forcing AB and Stoinis to take some chances. We let ourselves down on the field, but they batted sensibly. The crowd has been fantastic, and we have a few more games at home and hope we get the same kind of support. We need to string some wins and gain some momentum.”

Rafi Khan: “I was a big fan of Kings XI Punjab but not anymore, bcoz of the last two defeats against MI the other day and RCB today, both the matches they could have won easily but their poor and bizarre strategy cost them 4 points” — Still a while to go, Rafi. And the good thing for Kings XI is that they are able to compete against the good team as well this season

For those who were asking if RCB can still qualify for the playoffs provided they win every game from here, these are teams that made the playoffs in eight-team leagues after posting just 14 points

2018 – Rajasthan Royals

2014 – Mumbai Indians

2010 – Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings

2009 – Deccan Chargers

Aqueel: “Areeeeeeee Seeeeeeee Beeeeeeee… Ee Saala Cup Naamdey”

11.38pm This was a surreal end to a bit of a surreal contest, to be perfectly honest. Kings XI Punjab came up with a staccato batting effort to post 173, and then RCB looked right in control, before Virat Kohli’s wicket right at the end that made it a tight finish. R Ashwin handed the ball to former RCB player Sarfaraz Khan to defend five runs in the last over, and it got over in just two balls. Good batting, first from Kohli and then by AB de Villiers, who saw his team home

19.2 2 Khan to Stoinis short, and he has biffed this away to long off, and they pick up two to complete the victory! 2 runs
19.1 4 Khan to Stoinis half-tracker, and he goes back and punches this down the ground to long on FOUR

Sarfaraz Khan with the last over. This is seriously left of field

End of Over No.19 Bangalore Royal Challengers 168/2 Last Over (14 runs)

That could be game, set…but will it be the match?

18.6 6 Mohammed Shami to de Villiers moves across and smashes a length ball over long leg for SIX! SIX

They need AB’s wicket here, I think, if Kings XI have to win this one…

18.5 1 Mohammed Shami to Stoinis length, and he drags this down to long on 1 run
18.4 4 Mohammed Shami to Stoinis full ball, and he has dropped this down to long off. Interestingly, they kept mid off up for this ball, but Shami missed his mark with what I presume was meant to be a yorker. Critical boundary! FOUR

SewnarayneB: “Plenty bets lost… De guy who said RCB will end on 176/1 lost, de guy who said ABD n kholi will out in de same over lost, let’s see how this ends”

rmj1729: “You know simple way to calculate no of match based on no. of team, assume 8 teams in IPL if each team will against other team 1 match, then first team will play 7 match, second team 6 till 1 simple forumala (( n ( n-1) ) / 2 ) * no. of matches against need to play (n is number of team) -> if IPL has 8 team and need to play 2 match against each team (((8)(7))/2) * 2 = 56” — That’s true. Add the four matches for the playoff, and you have 60 matches for the IPL

18.3 . Mohammed Shami to Stoinis length, and he punches this towards short cover no run
18.2 1 Mohammed Shami to de Villiers short, and he forces this towards point. Aerial, but safe 1 run
18.1 2 Mohammed Shami to de Villiers full ball, and he whips this towards deep midwicket, and they pick up two. Was timed to perfection, in that it made the fielder run in hard 2 runs

Crucial 19th over, where this game could well get decided. Shami to deliver this one. Wouldn’t want to leave any less than 12 for Sam Curran to defend?

End of Over No.18 Bangalore Royal Challengers 154/2 Last Over (18 runs)

Was that the over that RCB needed?

17.6 2 Tye to Stoinis full, wide, and he has smacked this towards extra cover. The man at the fence, Mandeep, has to save this away to his left, and they get a comfortable couple 2 runs

Paras: “A legend once said…..catches win matches and KXIP is making it relevant once again. They have dropped the match by dropping Stoinis”

50 for AB

17.5 1 Tye to de Villiers wide, full, and he smacks this towards cover. R Ashwin has hit the stumps straight from there!. But de Villiers is in, and it’s also Tye’s arm that dislodges the bails 1 run

Vinod Rajpal: “I assure you all that this would be TIE & SUPER OVER !!”

Sooryanarayanan: “The best catching side this tournament has really been off tonight on the field. ”

17.4 6 Tye to de Villiers short, and AB has whacked this one inside out. Six! SIX
17.3 1 Tye to Stoinis short, and he looks to go across the line. The ball goes high, and M Ashwin has grassed this! It was an ugly across-the-line swipe, and took the top edge and went towards deep midwicket. M Ashwin should have held on to this 1 run

Parikshith Hari: “@Dhaval- but Kohli and chahal are still performing. By that logic, you suggest those two will fail in the World Cup? Come on, can’t apply law of averages across different formats”

17.2 4 Tye to Stoinis short, and he has cut this one past point. Uses the piece of the ball beautifully to guide it past the man at point! Back to back boundaries FOUR
17.1 4 Tye to Stoinis full, on his pads, and he flicks this away towards backward square leg. Terrific shot, as it eludes the fielder manning the fine leg boundary FOUR

Here’s Tye. Akshay Singh: “The responsibility falls again on ABD this time to finish the match. Hoping that we don’t see a repeat of RB vs MI match”

Rakesh: “Virat pulled off a MSD innings today. Batted slowly, allowed the RRR to mount and then got out tamely…”

Kings XI Punjab were at 138 for 4 at this stage!

End of Over No.17 Bangalore Royal Challengers 136/2 Last Over (6 runs)

16.6 1 R Ashwin to Stoinis length ball, bowled from wide of the crease, and he punches this to long off 1 run

Dhaval: “RCB should lose all 14 matches under Virat’s captaincy, so Law of averages come into play and India win the world cup.”

16.5 2 R Ashwin to Stoinis short, and he punches this through short cover. Misfield from Sarfaraz there, and it allows them to come back for two 2 runs
16.4 . R Ashwin to Stoinis length, turns into him, and he punches this to short cover no run
16.3 2 R Ashwin to Stoinis short, wide, and he cuts this towards backward point. Some work for the man at deep extra cover to do, and they come back for two 2 runs
16.2 . R Ashwin to Stoinis carrom ball, from wide of the crease, and Stoinis has to defend this no run
16.1 1 R Ashwin to de Villiers carrom ball, that he pushes through to extra cover 1 run

Win probability at this stage for RCB is 45 percent

End of Over No.16 Bangalore Royal Challengers 130/2 Last Over (4 runs)

15.6 1 Mohammed Shami to de Villiers full ball, and he drives this down to long on. Examines the bottom of his bat as he runs across to retain strike 1 run

praveen: “the strategy discussed in time out really worked. Runs dried up and kohli’s wicket. OMG Ashwin.”

15.5 1 Mohammed Shami to Stoinis short again, but a little more outside off, and he backs away and guides this towards third man 1 run

Graham: “The couldn’t mess this chase up, surely.. Could they?? ” — Haven’t heard that before in this IPL πŸ˜‰

15.4 . Mohammed Shami to Stoinis short, and he defends this, off the ground as he plays it towards short midwicket no run

Chanakyan: “Both Kohli and ADB will get out in the same over and RCB will collapse… Take my word. KXIP will win this match.” — Interesting. Three balls for that to happen

Here’s Stoinis

15.3 W Mohammed Shami to Kohli short ball, and he has pulled this straight to M Ashwin! It was fast from Shami, faster off Kohli’s bat as he looked for the deep midwicket fence, but M Ashwin was about 10-15 yards inside. Had to hold this over his head, and did well to hang on to what was a bullet shot. Is there a twist in the tale here? OUT
V Kohli c M Ashwin b Mohammed Shami 67 (73m 53b 8×4 0x6) SR: 126.41
15.2 1 Mohammed Shami to de Villiers swift ball, jags into him and he tries to get the whip through midwicket going. It hurries on to him, and he inside-edges this one into his body. They switch ends with some good running 1 run
15.1 1 Mohammed Shami to Kohli length ball, straight at the batsman, who punches this down to long on 1 run

Shami now

bharath: “What if RCB wins all 8 matches? Will they qualify? Or there will be ifs and but’s” — If they win each of them, it should be. Both 16 and even 14 have often been enough

Kings XI were 122 for 4 at this stage. RCB have two set batsmen, and some dew to work with, in contrast

End of Over No.15 Bangalore Royal Challengers 126/1 Last Over (4 runs)

14.6 1 M Ashwin to Kohli flighted, outside off, and he plays a lofted drive, but safely bounces on its way to long off 1 run

Gladwyn: “If Ashwin mankads Kohli or ABD, I doubt he’ll ever be allowed near the Indian team. ”

14.5 1 M Ashwin to de Villiers wrong ‘un, comes back into AB from outside off, and he plays it watchfully towards long on 1 run
14.4 . M Ashwin to de Villiers flighted, outside off, and he plays this with the turn away towards point no run

AnupRayamajhi: “This match is a great example of “tactical failure”. If Pooran had gotten out early then this total from KXIP would have been acceptable but he didn’t get to bat and even with Gayle batting 20 overs they end up scoring just 173 on a batting wicket. Nobody is to blame here other than the decision makers. ”

14.3 1 M Ashwin to Kohli wide, outside off, and he goes back and cuts this towards backward point 1 run
