Done with both the matches! It turned out to be a fantastic day for the low-keyed teams in the points table with Rajasthan and Bangalore punching above their weight. Do join us now on Sunday where we have two matches lined up for you once again. Kolkata will be hosting Chennai at 1600 local (1030 GMT) followed by the clash between Hyderabad and Delhi at 2000 local (1430 GMT). Until we meet again, it's goodbye from us. Cheers!
Man of the Match, AB de Villiers is very happy to get the first win of the season. Adds that it's still a small step in the right direction. States that he has got too much respect of the game to get upset about it, or to get ahead of himself. Mentions that he was just one knock away from finding his best form and hopes to maintain that now. Terms it a fantastic move to get in Dale Steyn and is delighted to have a bowler of his caliber in the team.
Victorious Bangalore skipper, Virat Kohli says the most pleasing thing is interviewing after winning a game. Mentions they have been unlucky in a few games but he is pleased to win this one. States the bowlers were really good tonight and it was a great effort to restrict them to 170. Talks about their bowling in the middle phase where they picked up four wicket in 8 overs for 60 odd runs which he feels was an outstanding effort.
Marcus Stoinis also gives a quick interview. Says that he was fortunate it was his night tonight. Tells that he enjoyed batting with the best player of their generation (AB de Villiers). Mentions he is very happy to get the two points and credits the way the Bangalore bowlers bounced back after the Powerplay.
Punjab skipper, Ravichandran Ashwin (on giving Sarfaraz Khan the final over) says that with just 6 runs to play with and the ball sliding on nicely, he wanted a leggie to bowl. Admits they tried to take the two big wickets but the pair of Kohli and de Villiers played smartly. States they were not up to the mark in the field as they dropped a few catches. Reckons the wicket was dry in the first half and it got better to bat on. Further adds that he backed his best bowlers to do the job at the death but they failed this time. Ends by thanking the crowd and hopes that they keep turning up and supporting them.
Bangalore started their chase in a brisk manner through the 43-run stand between Virat Kohli and Parthiv Patel. After that, their most loved batting pair, Kohli-de Villiers, combined to raise an 85-run partnership that put them on the front foot. After the second strategic break, Punjab tried to make a comeback and bowled a few quiet overs which resulted in the wicket of the Bangalore skipper. Thereafter, the required run rate started to jump but then the 18-run 18th over came followed by 14 runs in the 19th and that put the chase to bed. AB de Villiers batted through and along with Marcus Stoinis finished the job.
Earlier in the game, Punjab put on a powerful show with the bat in the Powerplay and courtesy Chris Gayle's excellent knock, they posted a very challenging total on the board. Although, the kind of start they had, they should have got at least 20-25 runs more. Credit should be given to the Bangalore bowlers, especially their spin pair, for putting the brakes on the scoring rate and playing a big role in this win.
Winning really does taste sweet! Bangalore tried, tried and tried but without any success in the last six games. Then, they got a 5-day break, rejuvenated and have come out trumps in this match! They will be really delighted at the moment after getting the monkey off their back. Bangalore will like to believe that this is the start of their resurgence and from hereon, they will go on a roll. Remember, it has reached to do-or-die situation for them and probably that's the kick they needed to get their campaign going.

Sarfaraz Khan To Marcus Stoinis
STOP THE PRESS! BANGALORE HAVE WON! Another short delivery outside off, Stoinis slaps it down to wide long off and steals two runs. Smiles return in the Bangalore camp, they finally taste their first victory of 2019. A comprehensive win here by 8 wickets and they are off the mark on the points table.

Sarfaraz Khan To Marcus Stoinis
FOUR! Two more needed. Sarfaraz bowls it flat and short on middle, Stoinis hops back to make room and bludgeons it over the bowler's head for a boundary. Kohli is pumped up in the dugout.
Surprise, surprise! It is not Sam Curran who is bowling the last over, it is Sarfaraz Khan.

A low full toss yet again by Shami, de Villiers jumps across the thumps and spanks it over fine leg for a biggie. 14 from the over, 32 in the last two. The last two overs have put Bangalore on the cusp of their first win of the season.

The batsman has played the square drive. Two runs added to the total. 18 from the over and this has changed the complexion of this chase. 20 needed off 12 balls.

Andrew Tye To AB de Villiers
NOT OUT! AB de Villiers is well in. Tye gets away with a really bad delivery. Plenty of width on this one, AB smashes it through the line but finds Ravichandran Ashwin on the edge of the box at extra cover. They scamper across for a quick single as the Punjab skipper has a shy at the bowler's end. It appears to be a direct hit in one go as the umpire refers it upstairs. The replays come and they show that the ball missed the stumps, hit Tye's hands and then gets deflected onto the stumps. Also, 50 up for Mr. 360. He though has to take his team over the line.
Have Punjab got de Villiers? A run out appeal at the non-striker's end has been taken upstairs. De Villiers looks relaxed though.
17.4

Andrew Tye To AB de Villiers
SIX! Bowl there to this batsman and he will hit you every single time, even in his sleep. Short and wide outside off, begging to be hit, de Villiers latches onto it and plunders it over covers for a maximum. 23 needed more off 14 balls.
17.3
1
Andrew Tye To Marcus Stoinis
DROPPED BY MURUGAN! A wicket at this stage would have surely made Bangalore nervous. Tye serves a back of a length delivery outside off, Stoinis tries pulling it but gets a big top edge. It goes way up high in the air, Murugan is underneath it and he drops. A single is taken, bringing de Villiers on strike.

Andrew Tye To Marcus Stoinis
FOUR! One more in the over. 8 off the first two balls, all the pressure built in the last four overs getting released. Short and wide outside off, Marcus rocks back and whacks it through backward point. Tye is looking dejected. 30 needed off 16 balls.
17.1

Andrew Tye To Marcus Stoinis
FOUR! Tye has been poor all evening. Starts with a full ball on the pads, easy pickings for any batsman, Stoinis picks it up and flicks it behind square leg for a boundary. Is this the over that Bangalore will target?
Andrew Tye is back into the attack.

Ravichandran Ashwin To Marcus Stoinis

Mohammed Shami To Virat Kohli OUT!
OUT! A wicket out of nowhere! Kohli is dismissed and he is looking shell-shocked. A short delivery again by Shami, this time Virat takes on the challenge to play the pull shot but ends up playing it flat and straight towards Murugan Ashwin at deep mid-wicket who jumps and takes it brilliantly over his head. The fielder is standing quite inside the rope there, not sure whether it's a plan or not but it has certainly worked. 46 needed off 27 balls. This match is not over yet.
15.2

Mohammed Shami To AB de Villiers
Quick single. Short in length and on off, de Villiers tries to pull but gets an inside edge onto the pads. It rolls near the surface and Kohli calls his partner for a sharp single. Shami also rushes forward and deflects it onto the stumps with his boot but Kohli is safely in by then.

Bouncer, the batsman leaves it thinking it to be a wide for height. Kohli is furious as the square leg umpire stands still and doesn't signal anything. The replays show that it was wayy over. Hmm...

The strategic break has been signaled! The story is the same as it was in the last break - Bangalore in control, if Punjab do not get wickets quickly, this game is going to slip away. Will there be a change in the story or will the visitors chase this down easily?

A direct hit and de Villiers was a goner! These half chances have to be taken at the moment. Length ball and on middle, Kohli works it with soft hands towards mid-wicket. The batters take one and go for the second. The fielder runs in and fires it to the bowler who fails to collect it. Replays later on show, had Tye collected it, de Villiers would have been short.

FOUR! Poor fielding. That's a gift from Rahul to Bangalore. Ashwin bowls it fuller outside off, de Villiers drives it through the covers. Rahul from long off runs to his left and then makes a mess of it as the ball goes through him and into the fence.
The strategic break has been signaled! Bangalore are cruising at the moment. They have their best batters out there who are going along nicely. They would hope the two to continue. Punjab on the other hand, need to break this stand as quickly as possible and get into the fragile middle order of the visitors. It was from a similar position from where Bangalore started slowing things down and Punjab will hope they can do the same.

FOUR! Poor ball and put away! Short and wide outside off, Kohli goes back and cuts it through point. The timing is such that there is no chance for the fielder to chase it down.

Murugan Ashwin To Virat Kohli
Almost drags it on! Close shave that was! A poor delivery to be honest. It is short and outside off, spinning away big time, Kohli looks to drag his pull but only manages an inside edge which goes just wide of the leg pole.

Mohammed Shami To AB de Villiers
FOUR! Cheeky! If the previous boundary was power, this one was deft and cheeky. Shami bowls it on a length on the fifth stump line, de Villiers opens the bat face and guides it to the third man fence. Shami is leaking a lot of runs here. 50 up for Bangalore, this is the quickest they have reached that mark in this season.

Mohammed Shami To AB de Villiers
Excellent change of lengths here by Shami. He bowls a yorker on off, de Villiers could do nothing but dig it out.

Ravichandran Ashwin To Parthiv Patel OUT!
OUT! In the air... taken! The skipper takes it on himself and delivers the goods. Excellent bowling, this. He slows it up and gives it a lot more air. Parthiv comes down the track and looks to go big but he does not get to the pitch of the ball. Still goes ahead with the shot. Only manages more height than distance. Agarwal at long off takes it. A much-needed wicket for the hosts. They would now want to build on this.

Back of a length on off, once again Kohli closes the face of the bat way too early, a soft leading edge towards mid off for a single.

Direct hit needed but the fielder misses! Would have been close. Kohli works this through mid-wicket. They taken one, go for the second. Mandeep has a shy at the non-striker's end but misses.

Sam Curran To Virat Kohli
Slower ball and it is shorter in length, Kohli stands tall and guides it to point. He is disappointed with himself a little as he felt he should have found the gap.

FOUR! Lovely shot! There is not a lot wrong with that delivery. This is a length ball on off, Kohli strokes it on the up and past the diving mid off fielder for a boundary.

Sam Curran To Parthiv Patel
FOUR! What a start to the run chase for the visitors. Curran bowls a half volley outside off. Patel says thank you very much, he strokes it through covers and the ball races away.
We are back for the chase! The Punjab team is in a huddle and now make its way out to the middle. They are followed by the Bangalore openers, Virat Kohli and Parthiv Patel. The left-hander will be on strike and he will face Sam Curran who has the new ball in hand. Here we go...
