Time to take a breather. For everyone. Bangalore win this close encounter and keeps themselves alive in the tournament. Chennai won't mind it much, but they know they have improvements to make, especially in the batting department. Moving on, Indian T20 League action continues as on Monday, Rajasthan host Delhi at 2000 local (1430 GMT). Do join in for that one. See you for that, folks!
Man of the Match, Parthiv Patel, says he feels great about his performance. Mentions that he realized the wicket was a bit sticky, so decided to be a little cautious after playing some shots freely early on. States that he picked which bowlers he could go after and which he should be a little wary of. On the last-ball fiasco, he says that he knew the situation could happen any time, so he was ready for it since the start of the over. Ends by saying that the team is working hard and always trying to improve.
Bangalore skipper, Virat Kohli, says he's feeling a varied range of emotions right now. States that the way they started with the ball was outstanding so is pleased with that. Adds that he never expected what happened on the last ball to happen and is relieved when he says that they finally got on the right side of a close encounter. Reckons that they were in control for the most part of the innings but MS Dhoni took it deep and did what he usually does. Stresses that while batting, Marcus Stoinis' wicket was the turning point as they fell a few runs shorter than they wanted. On Moeen Ali being sent down the order, the skipper feels that in hindsight it seems something else could have been done, but since the Englishman has been striking the ball well, they decided he could come in late and provide a late flurry. On Navdeep Saini and Yuzvendra Chahal, Kohli says both showed composure, especially the former as it's his first season, and he's doing well for the team which is quite pleasing to see. Informs that there are a lot of things said, but if you don't have a lot of confidence it doesn't matter. Continues saying that he's just told his team to play with confidence and take ownership of their decisions. Ends by praising Umesh Yadav for coming back well on the last ball after being hammered for the other five deliveries.
Yuzvendra Chahal comes in for a little chat. He says that he wanted to bowl it on the stumps and not in the zone of the batsman. Credits the way Dhoni batted and they were hoping the Chennai captain misses the last ball. Mentions that he is enjoying his bowling, especially on this wicket. Ends by saying that he continuously looks to attack and take wickets.
Chennai skipper, MS Dhoni, says it was a good bowling performance from his bowlers. Further adds that the batting is where they faltered. States that they needed to calculate the run chase better, early wickets made the task tougher. Tells that they need to assess their problems and take calculated risks. Informs that it was difficult playing back of a length deliveries and it was not going to be easy for a new batsman and hence, he did not run in the second last over. Ends by saying that they have done well so far since their team has a lot of experience, they were never complacent but it is their batting which is letting them down.
Bangalore will breathe a huge sigh of relief that they somehow managed to win. What should have been a comfortable victory turning into an unfavourable nail-biter for them. the start was perfect, the middle overs weren't too shabby either, but 68 runs came in the final 5 overs, with 25 of them coming in the last one which was bowled by Umesh Yadav. Steyn, Chahal and Saini all bowled really well, picking wickets and keeping the run-flow quite tight as well. Another scare for the home side, but it will take the win all the same.
With how the chase began, you'd never have thought it'd go so close. Post Rayudu's dismissal, the thought would have been the same. Bangalore started off in the best fashion with Steyn getting rid of Watson and Raina in the very first over of the innings. The visitors were four down by the end of the Powerplay. Dhoni and Rayudu regained some momentum, before the latter departed against the run of play. Jadeja and then Bravo's dismissals made it seem hope was all but lost, but Dhoni, who scored a superb fifty, kept the fight going and with 26 required off the final over, almost got his team across the line.
Wow! Let us take a breather. The absolute scenes here. How many more of these close shaves can we take? I don't know about you guys, but that number isn't too big for me. Real heart-stopping stuff. Dhoni almost pulled off another one of his many miracles, but fell short right at the end. Perhaps those single he didn't take with Bravo came back to haunt him in the end? Possibly. But Dhoni is Dhoni, he has his own way of doing things.

Umesh Yadav To MS Dhoni OUT!
OUT! THAKUR IS JUST SHORT! Even the dive doesn't save him. BANGALORE WIN BY 1 RUN! Umesh bowls the slower one outside off, Dhoni looks to poke it on the off side but misses and seeing this, without any doubt to anyone, both batsmen take off. Parthiv collects the ball and has a shy at his end. Scores a direct hit and it's taken upstairs. Replays roll in and show Thakur is gone for all money.
Is that a run out? Are we in for a Super Over? Or is Thakur gone? All happening here at the Chinnaswamy. Over to the third umpire now...

Umesh Yadav To MS Dhoni
SIX! Another maximum! MS Dhoni is taking his side home. He accepts this juicy full toss and swings his bat hard across the line. it's a flat hit and the ball clears the mid-wicket rope. Insane hit. Just 2 needed off the final ball. What will happen here?

Umesh Yadav To MS Dhoni
Better. Goes for the attempted yorker, it's a low dipping full toss which Dhoni slogs to deep mid-wicket. Obviously, he runs hard and comes back for the second.

SIX! 10 off 3 now. Oh wow! MS Dhoni, you beauty! Full delivery and right in the slot, Dhoni gets underneath the ball and hammers it over long off. Ab de Villiers at the rope leaps and tries to catch it, but it's just over it.

Umesh Yadav To MS Dhoni
SIX! That's huuuuuuggggeeeeee!!!!!! Are we in for another MS Dhoni special? Could it be? That's hit the roof. Shortish ball on middle, Dhoni absolutely nails the pull and sends it high and handsome over the mid-wicket boundary. Wow. 16 needed in 4 now.

Umesh Yadav To MS Dhoni
FOUR! Slower short ball on middle and off, Dhoni picks it up early. Rolls his wrists as he controls the pull behind square leg and beats the fielder in the deep to the fence.
Shardul Thakur walks out to bat! Also, it is Umesh Yadav who will bowl the last over. He has 25 runs to defend. Can he do it or is it going to be Dhoni who is going to be the hero?

Navdeep Saini To MS Dhoni
No ball and SIX! Well, obviously MSD knows more than us. It's a Free Hit too so this could be a big bonus for Chennai. Short ball outside off, Dhoni cuts it over the third man boundary. Saini overstepped. Let's see what happens here.

Dale Steyn To MS Dhoni
Shortish delivery quite close to off, Dhoni wrists it to mid-wicket. Runs the first one hard, wants the second too but he slips at the non-striker's end. So they settle for just the one.

Dale Steyn To MS Dhoni
SIX! Fifty for MS Dhoni, his 23rd in the Indian T20 League. Gets there in style too. This back of a length ball just sits up for him, MSD camps back and muscles the heave over wide long on for half a dozen.

Navdeep Saini To MS Dhoni OUT!
OUT! RUN OUT! Huge mix-up in the middle and Jadeja pays the price for it. Wicket at the wrong time for Chennai. Dhoni looks to pull this away but mistimes it in front of mid-wicket. Both batsmen take off, there's some hesitation, Jadeja continues on, and when he gets to the halfway mark, Dhoni turns around and leaves him stranded. Saini collects the ball and then has all the time in the world to go to the stumps at his end and take the bails off.

Yuzvendra Chahal To MS Dhoni
Drifting in on middle and leg, Dhoni works it off his pads square on the leg side. Big gap out there, he places it with just enough power to place it right in between the fielders in the circle and in the deep. Gets two easily.

Wide! Back of a length delivery down the leg side, Jadeja allows it through smartly.
Strategic break. 76 needed off the last six overs and this match is more in Bangalore's court than Chennai. But with the batsman of the caliber of Dhoni and Jadeja in the middle and Bravo to come, you cannot write them off easily. These kind of equations have been scaled down in the past and considering Bangalore's bowling woes, this match is anything but over. So, just sit back tight and enjoy the ride of the end overs. Marcus Stoinis to bowl...

NOT OUT! But it was closer than we thought. A flighted leg spinner, landing on middle and spinning away to open Rayudu completely in his stance as he stretches forward to work it around. The ball spins away to beat the outside edge and Patel takes the bails off in a hurry. He appeals and it's referred upstairs. The replays show that Rayudu's back leg is in the air but it's not quite conclusive that when the bails came off, it's entirely down or not. The third umpire watches multiple replays and then gives the benefit of the doubt to the batsman.
Stumping appeal. It has been taken upstairs. Doesn't look out even in the first go, let's find out in the replays...

Strategic break. Bangalore are all over Chennai like a rash. They have made an outstanding beginning and after a strong Powerplay show, they are on top. But the hosts will have to be careful as well. The current pair of Chennai can really hurt them. Also, dew has already set in and gripping the ball won't be easy for the Bangalore bowlers. A very vital phase in this match is about to begin. Yuzvendra Chahal to bowl his leggies after the mini-break.

Well bowled, good comeback by Negi. Dhoni initially advances but seeing that, Negi shortens his length. Dhoni then stops the charge and looks to force it through the off side but misses. He quickly drags his back leg into the crease. Parthiv whips the bails off but that is of no use.

FOUR! Smart shot but a poor ball also! Down the leg side, Dhoni paddles it very fine, no chance for any fielder and a boundary results.

Navdeep Saini To MS Dhoni
Plenty happened on this delivery. It begins with an inswinger that strikes Dhoni on the pads as he fails to work it around. The ball deflects towards point and they cross. The fielder has a shy at the bowler's end but misses and now they cross one more time. The long on fielder tries to stop it but ends up kicking it. The mid-wicket fielder mops it up after that. Two leg byes in total. Now, returning to that lbw appeal, it's not given as the ball was missing leg by a fair margin, the replays confirmed.

Movement off the pitch. It lands it on a length around off, Dhoni tries to defend but fails to middle his shot. Probably an inside edge onto the pads as the ball rolls on the leg side.

FOUR! And Mahi begins with a delightful square drive. An overpitched delivery outside off, Dhoni reaches out for it and crunches it through point for a glorious boundary. 32/4 in the Powerplay, Bangalore are roaring!
MS Dhoni is the new man in and as usual, when he walks in to bat, doesn't matter if it's a home or away game, the crowd goes bonkers. Dhoni! Dhoni! Dhoni! ...resonating all around the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Umesh Yadav To Kedar Jadhav OUT!
OUT! Wicket number 4 goes down inside the Powerplay! This is a very strong start from Bangalore. Jadhav's sorry form also continues. Back of a length delivery outside off, Kedar stands back to pull it across the line but it takes the top edge and loops in the air towards mid off. AB de Villiers settles underneath it and takes the simplest of catches. Chennai staring down the barrel...

FOUR! STREAKY! Chennai won't mind though as it is a much-needed boundary for them. Steyn bowls it on a length and around off, this one comes back in sharply. Jadhav looks to play at it tentatively but only manages an inside edge to the fine leg fence. Another very testing over from Steyn but 6 from it. Also, this was probably his last over of this spell. He has bowled three, taken two wickets and given away only 16 runs.

NOT OUT! That has brushed the thigh pad! Bangalore have lost their only review. Not sure why they went for it when they weren't sure. This is down the leg side, Jadhav looks to flick but it goes off something to the keeper. Patel appeals but the umpire shakes his head. No wide signaled so it is hit something. Bangalore feel bat and they review. Replays roll in and it shows the on-field call is the right one.
Review time! An appeal for a caught behind has been turned down. Bangalore have reviewed. They do not look sure though.

Umesh Yadav To Faf du Plessis OUT!
OUT! Du Plessis was looking rattled and has finally fallen here. Umesh bangs in a shortish ball on middle, Faf tries to pull it across the line but fails to properly get on top of the bounce. It takes the top edge and balloons straight up in the air towards mid on. Nath rushes forward and so does AB de Villiers from mid off. The latter reaches there first, no calling is made and AB does well eventually to hang onto the catch as Akshdeep collides with him and goes down. No harm done. Smiles all around. Chennai in deep trouble. Bangalore have the momentum in the Powerplay.

What happened there??? The ball has shaved past the off pole and the bail has not come off. Faf is very lucky to be still batting out there. First up, it's a beauty of a delivery. Yadav clocks 141 kph again and spears in a full ball on off, Faf tries to work it around but is squared up and it beats the outside half of his bat. After that it goes kissing the off stump to the keeper much to Bangalore's bad luck.

Direct hit would have been curtains for du Plessis! Chennai are looking very restless at the moment. Fuller in length and outside off, Faf drives it without much timing to mid off and wants a single. His partner responds and du Plessis puts his head down and runs like anything. His countryman, AB de Villiers, attacks the ball and then has a shy at the bowler's end but misses. AB probably lost his balance a bit while releasing his throw. The run is completed but it was too risky.

Dale Steyn To Suresh Raina OUT!
OUT! Snorter from Steyn and he has gunned down Chennai's best batsman. A perfect yorker on off at 143.7 kph, Raina is late in bringing his bat down and it goes right through to shatter the stumps. Steyn is pumped up. Kohli hugs him. This is the kind of start they needed. Raina bags a rare golden duck. Nothing much you can do as a batsman when you are welcomed with a jaffa like this. Just accept it's not your night and return to the pavilion. Two wickets in the first over itself. Steyn will be on a hat-trick in his next over.
Suresh Raina is the new batsman.

Dale Steyn To Shane Watson OUT!
OUT! This is a Test match dismissal off the bowling of one of the very best Test bowlers around. This line outside off will always trouble any batsman. Perfect landing of the seam, it's on a length outside off and nips away, Watson goes for a big drive through the line but ends up edging it behind to Stoinis at first slip. The Aussie takes the catch over his head and makes no mistake that he made in the last match against Kolkata when he dropped Lynn. Early setback for Chennai and Watson's poor form continues.
