Match Ended   
149/9 (20.0/20)
Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Rajasthan Royals by 7 wickets
That's a wrap to this game. We look forward to your company on Thursday for the clash between Hyderabad and Chennai in Sharjah. The action will begin at 6 pm local (2 pm GMT) but you can join us in advance for the build-up. Cheers!
Yuzvendra Chahal (4-0-18-2) has been chosen for the Man of the Match award. The leggie starts by sharing that he came late into the attack as there were two left-handers batting so Virat Kohli planned to go with the medium-pacers. Tells us that he has watched the videos of Mahipal Lomror and it was a plan to bowl wider outside off if he uses his feet. Admits that in the first half of the season, he didn't get wickets regularly but he has backed himself after the break. Mentions that he got his confidence back after the Sri Lankan series and is looking to maintain the same momentum.
Virat Kohli, the victorious captain of Bangalore, says that they have come back strongly in the last two games through their bowlers. Feels that when you hold nerves in tight games, you are heading in the right direction. Tells that it was a very good wicket to bat on. Mentions that 175 here would have been competitive. Regarding the plans when Rajasthan got off to a flying start, Kohli replies that they needed a couple of breakthroughs and knew that things will open up. He terms the wicket of Evin Lewis as the game-changing moment and praises George Garton for showing courage. Mentions that they have been bowling well in the middle overs and the start with the bat has also been brilliant. Ends by saying that they are getting into the groove at the right stage of the tournament.
Glenn Maxwell comes up for a quick chat. The Aussie says that they played really well. Adds that Rajasthan got off to a flying start and to bring them back in the last 10 overs was a great effort. On his personal form, Maxwell tells that he has trained well and it's clicking for him. Shares that the atmosphere in the dressing room is great and it's almost similar with every franchise. States that everyone is chipping in and they are not relying on just one player. Praises Srikar Bharat for his knock and calls him a top-class batsman.
Sanju Samson, the captain of Rajasthan, says that they got a good start but failed to capitalize on that. He adds that their middle order needs to work on and is short on confidence at the moment. Feels that the wicket was two-paced and the batters got out going for some big shots. Mentions that they needed to put up a fight and he is happy with the effort and intent put in the bowling. About their position on the points table, Samson replies that they don't have anything to lose and can express themselves freely now.  Signs off by saying that funny things can happen in the Indian T20 League and they need to fight till the last match.
Presentation time...
This win for Bangalore was set up by their bowlers. The way they pulled things back and clipped the wings of the high-flying Rajasthan was exceptional. Their bowling after the 11th over mark brought down Rajasthan and restricted them to just 149 on a good batting pitch. The chase started in an extraordinary manner too with both Virat Kohli and Devdutt Padikkal forming a handy stand. They stuttered slightly after losing Padikkal as Kohli was also sent packing soon after that by a direct throw from Riyan Parag. Rajasthan though failed to capitalize on that moment as the pair of Srikar Bharat and Glenn Maxwell stitched in a mature partnership to shut the door on them. Towards the end, we got to see the 'Big Show' in full throttle as he hammered Chris Morris left, right and centre to finish the chase with 17 balls to spare.
Yet another convincing victory for Bangalore! A neat and clean chase from them and they have grabbed two crucial points. They stay third at the moment but would be feeling a lot better now after a bumpy start to the second leg. Bangalore have now opened up a 4-point gap with both Kolkata and Mumbai on the table and have got some breathing space. As far as Rajasthan are concerned, they are now left with an uphill task and things are looking increasingly difficult for them.

Mustafizur Rahman is stationed in the deep, he times his jump to perfection as he stretches his left hand up. He does well to flick the ball back in play and also stays away from the boundary line. Clinically done. Top stuff from The Fizz. Saves 5 runs for his side.

Chris Morris To Virat Kohli OUT!
OUT! RUN OUT! Brilliant effort in the field by Riyan Parag. He dropped the catch on the third ball of this over but makes sure he redeems himself. A length ball, outside off. Kohli chases it. The ball takes the outside edge and yet again goes to the left of point. Riyan Parag dives to that side and makes a half-stop. The batters decide to take a single. Parag collects the ball and scores a direct hit at the non-striker's end, where Virat was heading. Kohli is short of the crease, confirmed by the third umpire. This is a huge blow to Bangalore!
A run out appeal has been sent upstairs. Riyan Parag has scored a direct hit at the bowler's end and Virat Kohli is the man in question. Replay rolls in and shows that Virat Kohli is caught well short of the crease. The umpire shows OUT on the big screen.

Strategic Time-Out! Similar to Rajasthan, Bangalore are off to a blistering start as well though have lost Devdutt Padikkal. They need 96 runs from 84 balls and have enough batting power left in their ranks to chase it down. Rajasthan would look to get a couple of quick wickets to put Bangalore under pressure.

Chetan Sakariya To Devdutt Padikkal
Shortish and outside off, tapped down wide of short third man for a single. 3 from the over, a good one by Chetan Sakariya, deserved a wicket too.

Chetan Sakariya To Devdutt Padikkal
DROPPED! Sanju Samson is the culprit. Rajasthan cannot afford to do that. Back of a length, around off and cutting back in to cramp the batsman, Devdutt Padikkal is on the back foot, attempting to cut but ends up getting a thick outside edge. Samson was seen moving to his right and then has to dive at the last moment to his left. He was never in the position to catch it. Spills it.
