Punjab Kings beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by 54 runs
That concludes the proceedings for this match. On Saturday, 14th May, Kolkata will be facing Hyderabad at 7.30 pm IST (2 pm GMT) in yet another crucial game of this season. You can join us in advance for the build-up. Until then, it's goodbye and cheers!
Jonny Bairstow is given the Player of the Match award for his 66 off 29 balls. Says that it was one of those days when it came off. Regarding taking on Josh Hazlewood, Jonny replies that there are many quality bowlers in the Indian T20 League, and he just tried to get Josh off his length and it paid off. On him batting at different positions for his national team and in this League, Bairstow says that it's completely different to represent England and to play for Punjab but the stats suggest that he enjoys opening the batting.
Mayank Agarwal, the captain of Punjab, says that they were brilliant with the bat and calls the batting efforts of Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone amazing. Adds that they have not changed their style a lot and it's important to assess the conditions and adapt accordingly. Tells that they cannot be too defensive with the ball as the boundaries are not long enough to contain the batters and you need to be aggressive with the ball. Feels that two points are more crucial for the team and as long as the job is getting done, he is fine batting in the middle order. Regarding Arshdeep Singh, Mayank calls him a very energetic guy who is very confident and enjoys his cricket.
Liam Livingstone (70 off 42 balls) comes up for a chat! The Englishman smiles and says that he has a tight calf and the taping was just a precaution. Mentions that this is how they want to play their cricket. Credits Jonny Bairstow for setting the tone and informs that he was just assessing the condition and knocking it around the corner before going for the big hits. Feels that they were 10-15 runs short and gives all the credit to their bowlers. States that they put the opposition under pressure from the beginning. Regarding his personal form, Liam replies that it's been a different role and he has tried to contribute in every way possible. Further says that he is seeing the ball well and it's nice to score a few runs. Also adds that he prides himself on the ability to bat at different positions and he is ready to bat wherever his captain and the coach want him to.
Faf du Plessis, the skipper of Bangalore, says that it was a good score and praises the batting of Jonny Bairstow who put pressure on the Bangalore bowlers. Feels that 200 was a par score on this pitch. Mentions that they lost wickets in a cluster and that didn't help them. On Virat Kohli finding different ways to get out, du Plessis replies that Virat is seeing the lighter side of his dismissals and Faf feels that it's all about how you stay positive and motivated. He is pleased with the way Virat Kohli is handling everything and hopes that a big score is around the corner. Shares that they have a little bit of break and they will try to forget this loss and put all their energy into the next game which will be a must-win for them. Adds that one more net session won't make you a great player and it's all about a strong mindset. Feels they are a very good team but this evening they didn't do the execution part right.
Stay tuned for the interviews...
This victory for Punjab was set up by the power duo from England - Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone. The former put on a show in the Powerplay and the latter navigated through the middle overs and provided Punjab with a strong finish. The overall bowling was decent and Kagiso Rabada stood out with a 3-fer. Rishi Dhawan and Rahul Chahar also did an impressive job.
It was a daunting task for Bangalore in the chase, and the start from them was bright and breezy. Virat Kohli looked in fine form, but his stay was too short. Three wickets fell in quick succession for Bangalore, and soon all the momentum got sucked away from their corner. Maxwell and Patidar threatened for a short while, but they both departed in the space of three balls and things unravelled quickly after that. A big defeat at this stage would have an adverse effect on Bangalore's NRR.
The victory was needed, the victory is achieved, and Punjab's campaign this season stays afloat! It was a clinical bowling show from them despite being put under pressure by Glenn Maxwell and Rajat Patidar for a brief period. Punjab will be delighted with this success as it can boost their morale.

Rishi Dhawan To Mahipal Lomror OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! The aggression gets the better of Lomror! Rishi Dhawan delivers a shortish delivery, around middle at 125.9 kph, Mahipal Lomror runs down the track and blazes his pull shot across the line. It's aerial and goes straight into the hands of Shikhar Dhawan at mid-wicket. The two Dhawans have combined for a wicket and Rishi is all pumped up!

Rishi Dhawan To Faf du Plessis OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Rishi Dhawan lands it on a length just outside off, gets it to shape away a bit, Faf du Plessis dances down the track for a big heave across the line but fails to connect cleanly. Jitesh Sharma catches the ball and runs forward in celebration. The umpire is not interested and the keeper immediately signals to his skipper to take the DRS. Mayank obliges and the UltraEdge confirms the departure of du Plessis. Bangalore have now lost both their openers.
Review! Punjab again take a review, this time for a caught behind decision. There was a noise as the ball passed the bat and the UltraEdge confirms the same as there is a big spike on it. Faf du Plessis has to walk back. Another successful review from Punjab.

Kagiso Rabada To Virat Kohli OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Big wicket for Punjab. Sharp delivery from Rabada, around leg on the shorter side, Kohli steps back and tries to glance but fails to make a proper connection. It balloons off his thigh pad to short fine leg where the fielder (Rahul Chahar) catches the ball. Rabada is appealing, the finger stays down. He asks his skipper to take the DRS. The UltraEdge shows that the ball has clipped the gloves of Kohli before shooting up from the top half of his thigh pad. Rabada strikes and removes Kohli who was looking in fine form.
Review time! Virat Kohli has been caught at short fine leg and Punjab take the review. UltraEdge shows a spike as the ball brushes his gloves. Out it is.
