Match Ended   
158/6 (20.0/20)
Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Punjab Kings by 6 runs
Right then. That is all we have from this game. But, there is another game in store for us as Kolkata will be clashing against Hyderabad at 6 pm local (2 pm GMT). Switch tabs to catch all the action from that game. Cheers!
GLENN MAXWELL HAS BEEN GIVEN THE MAN OF THE MATCH AWARD!
Yuzvendra Chahal is in for a chat! He says that he just believe in himself and he was lacking that in the first leg. Adds that 160 was a good score on this pitch and wickets early on were very crucial. Adds that Agarwal is a great batsman and he loves to play against him. Adds that they are not worrying much and taking it game by game.
KL Rahul, the skipper of Punjab, says he has had the Orange Cap for the last couple of years but it does not mean anything. Says Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers played a crucial knock for them. Adds that he plays a role that team demands. Says in T20I, the top three have to score the bulk of runs and they lack in that aspect. Adds that Sharukh Khan, Ravi Bishnoi, and Harpreet Brar have been wonderful for the team for the last couple of games and they will try and score more in the next game.
A really good bowling display by Bangalore. The third time on the trot that their bowlers have delivered when they needed them to. A win would have sealed their place in the playoffs and they have played very well to win this crunch game. They found it hard to get a wicket early on and were under pressure but once they got KL Rahul's wicket, the floodgates opened and they started to pick wickets regularly and walked the talk to end up on the winning side. Yuzvendra Chahal had another fruitful outing as he ended with 3 to his name. George Garton had a decent outing too, snaring one wicket. Even though Mohammed Siraj and Harshal Patel did not scalp wickets, they bowled superbly and applied pressure well. Overall, a top display.
Chasing the highest total that has been posted in this leg of the tournament in Sharjah was always going to be slightly tough and they needed a set platform to scale the total down. As usual, their openers, KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal braved the storm early on, and once settled, they started to score runs at a brisk pace. Both of them started to get going and raised a 91-run stand before Rahul was sent back. Pooran continued his poor form and fell for a tame score. Mayank got to his fifty and he would have wanted to stay until the end and take them past the line but he holed out at the wrong time too. With the run rate creeping up, Markram decided to swing hard and that decision proved to be his undoing as he gifted his wicket away. Towards the end, Punjab could not hold their nerve and found it hard and fell short by 6 runs.
There we have it, ladies and gentlemen! Chennai and Delhi have already booked their place in the playoff stages and two more teams could have made it. Now, with this win under their belt, Bangalore have booked their place in the next stage. Punjab, on the other hand, are in a precarious position as nothing is certain for them. They still have a bleak chance at making the playoffs but they will need other teams to slip.

Yuzvendra Chahal To Sarfaraz Khan OUT!
OUT! TIMBER! Wow, just wow! That is a tremendous delivery. An absolute beauty! Sarfaraz Khan must be wondering, why him? He is making a comeback into the side, against his former side, he would be wanting to prove a point but gets a gem. This lands around leg. Sarfaraz Khan, however, does not put in a big stride forward and tries to play it out. This lands and then spins away sharply. Goes past the outside edge and hits the off pole. Sarfaraz Khan is bamboozled. Punjab in huge trouble now.

Yuzvendra Chahal To Mayank Agarwal OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! That is a huge, huge blow! The well-set Agarwal has been sent back to the pavilion. Mayank Agarwal was the guy Punjab would have wanted to stay there till the end but he falls at a crucial stage. Bangalore well and truly on top. Chahal weaves his magic yet again. This lands on middle, it holds its line and also straightens a touch. Agarwal looks to pull but this goes off the top edge over the keeper. Siraj at short third man takes a good catch running to his left.

Strategic Time-Out! A good passage of play for Bangalore. After taking the big wicket of KL Rahul, they chipped another wicket of Pooran and also made sure the runs are not given away freely. For Punjab, Mayank Agarwal plays a key role from here as he is the set batsman and he has to take his team over the line. Also, Mohammed Siraj is back into the attack.

Shahbaz Ahmed To KL Rahul OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! There is the first one. May have come a lot later than Kohli would have liked but they now have a chance to build on this. Not sure if this was needed, having already seen a biggie in this over. KL Rahul comes down the track and Shahbaz Ahmed cleverly bowls it outside off, well outside off we should write. Rahul was made to chase for it. He does go after it but tries to hit it downtown, it goes off the top edge and it is an easy catch to Patel at short third man.

Strategic Time-Out! Punjab are off to a really good start! Both the openers have played sensibly so far. However, it is now when things get tough. The field restrictions end and now the ball gets soft, with that, run-scoring becomes very much difficult. Bangalore will hope they can now put pressure on the chasing side with a few good overs. Punjab on the other hand, need to continue to bat sensibly and they will be in a good position to win this game. A good passage of play awaits. Yuzvendra Chahal is into the attack!

Shahbaz Ahmed To Mayank Agarwal
NOT OUT! Drifting down the leg side, Agarwal looks to tuck but misses. Bharat collects the ball and whips the bails off quickly. An appeal for stumping and the third umpire is called in. The foot was planted solidly behind the crease when the bails were whipped off. Nothing on UltraEdge too as the third umpire has a look for caught behind. All-in-all, will be not out.
A stumping appeal and it is referred! None of the Bangalore players seem excited though.

George Garton To KL Rahul
Just a run off the Free Hit! A slower, fuller ball on middle, KL Rahul gets low and moves across to sweep this behind square leg. One run. The idea was right, there were two fielders inside the ring in that region but he does not get the connection.

NO BALL! Too high again. A bouncer, around off and middle, Mayank just pulls this one awkwardly to square leg. One taken. Free Hit coming up now.

Mohammed Siraj To KL Rahul
On middle and leg, Rahul looks to flick but gets an inside edge on his pad.
Review time! KL Rahul has taken a review straight away after he was declared LBW. KL Rahul looks confident about this review. UltraEdge shows a thick inside edge. A good review from KL Rahul as he survives.

Mohammed Siraj To KL Rahul
NOT OUT! A good review from KL and he survives. Around off, on a length, angling in, KL looks to work this to the leg side but misses and gets hit on the pad. An appeal for LBW from Siraj and the umpire agrees. Rahul does not though as he goes for the review straightaway. Maybe he knew that there was an inside edge there. UltraEdge rolls in and there is a clear spike as the ball goes past the blade. The on-field decision has been overturned.

SIX! That is out of here! Massive shot. KL Rahul gets a biggie and the first one too! It was the slower one, 127 clicks, around off, KL Rahul anticipates well and thumps this one over deep mid-wicket.

An appeal for caught behind but turned down! A short ball, around middle and leg, Mayank Agarwal looks to pull but misses and the keeper takes it. An appeal but the umpire says no. There is a discussion whether they should take the review but Kohli opts not to. A good decision as replay shows that this came off his bicep.
