So that is it from Bengaluru! The home side has been given a rude shock and they remain at the bottom of table, without posting a single win on the board till now having played 5 games. Meanwhile, Kolkata has posted their third win of this season and look really strong. Super Saturday up next, and a double-header in the offing! Chennai host Punjab in the first game of the day at the MA Chidambaram Stadium while Mumbai visit Hyderabad for the second match at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. The first game will begin at 1600 local (1030 GMT). Join us for the coverage of the same. Till then, we bid you goodbye. Cheers and take care!
Andre Russell is the Man of the Match. He believes that no game is over till the last ball is bowled. He informs us that the skipper told him that he might need a few balls to get in but he was going to play only one way ever since the time he was watching the game from the sidelines. He reckons that on another day, this might not be possible and says that the sometimes the players need to put their body on the line, feels that is the nature of T20 cricket. States that he has a never say die attitude. Laughs it off when asked if he considers any ground too big to clear, mentions that there are a few in Australia but now he trusts his power and strength, while backing himself to clear even those. When asked about how he deposits the low full tosses for maximums, he informs us that he uses his hand-eye coordination while also practicing the short-arm jabs. He signs off by jokingly saying that he cannot explain his shots, can only demonstrate them out in the middle.
Dinesh Karthik, the victorious Kolkata skipper is all smiles and says that the whole team trusts in the ability of Andre Russell. States that he just does the best for the team every single time he goes out there in the middle. Mentions that the ball was gripping a bit and assisting the spinners in the middle. He feels that the bowling has to be looked at and would like his side to restrict the opposition as it would help their batsmen during a chase. He also has praise for the way Chris Lynn batted and hopes he keeps batting well.
Chris Lynn is up for a little chat as well. He is all smiles and praises Andre Russell by saying that they keep putting him in difficult situations and he keeps on lifting his game. Feels that 220 was probably par on that wicket. On the luck factor, the Aussie responds that both teams got that as they also put down AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli. Terms Russell as the million dollar man for Kolkata as the West Indian keeps on doing it again and again.
Bangalore skipper, Virat Kohli says that they bowled very poorly in the last 4 overs and admits that they have not been playing at the level of the League. He wants his bowlers to be more clever and terms his bowling one dimensional. States that he was not happy with the timing of his dismissal as he could have got 20-25 runs more. Points out that AB de Villiers didn't get much strike towards the end. Feels that there were enough runs on the board and they didn't have enough composure. Further says that if you can't defend 75 in the last four overs then he is not sure that they can defend even 100. Mentions that they can talk as much as they can but have to perform on the field. Signs off by believing that they can turn things around.
Coming to the bowling, well what can be said? The spin duo of Pawan Negi and Yuzvendra Chahal bowled really well. The same can be said to some extent for Navdeep Saini as well but the rest of the bowlers were ripped apart. In the end, the Men in Purple coasted to an incredible win, snatching it from the jaws of defeat. Unbelievable hitting witnessed but one has to feel for Virat Kohli and co. who certainly have nothing going their way this year so far. Stay tuned for the presentation ceremony!
The chase started off not on the best of notes for the away side as they lost Sunil Narine early in the innings. The duo of Robin Uthappa and Chris Lynn then joined hands and had a good stand of 65 runs before they were separated. Thereafter, the Bangalore tweakers kept plugging away and picked wickets at decent intervals to keep their team in front. All this lasted only till the end of the 17th over though. Siraj was taken off post bowling a second beamer and the momentum that Kolkata garnered from there on was never lost. They ended up on the right side of the result and ensured the hosts remained winless in the 5 games played.
Bangalore have just been shocked here. There are no words to describe the class and the power of Andre Russell. With 53 runs needed in the last 18 balls, the hosts were certainly the favorites but Andre Russell made a scintillating 13-ball 48 which helped Kolkata win with 5 balls left. What a magnificent show of power-hitting we have witnessed.

Pawan Negi To Shubman Gill
KOLKATA WIN BY 5 WICKETS! The match is calmly finished by Shubman Gill. No heroics. He patiently turns a delivery off his pads towards short fine leg for the winning run. Hard to believe, the visitors have managed to scale the target with 5 balls to go. Brutal batting. Making impossible, possible - Andre Russell.
52 runs in the last two overs and Andre Russell has made a complete mockery off Bangalore's bowling. One more needed.

Tim Southee To Andre Russell
SIX! This man is making a mockery of the chase! Around the wicket this time, low full toss on middle, Russell smashes this one over wide long on. No stopping this guy. This is just striking of the greatest quality. Just 11 off 8 needed now.
18.3

Tim Southee To Andre Russell
SIX! Another six, this time is it just over the rope at third man. A short ball wide outside off, Russell backs away and cuts it over backward point. The ball flies just over the rope. The crowd has gone silent here!

Tim Southee To Andre Russell

Tim Southee To Shubman Gill
Slower ball outside off, Shubhman Gill hits it in the air towards long on. The ball goes on a few bounces to the fielder. Single taken, Russell back on strike.
Tim Southee will bowl the penultimate over of the game. 30 off 12 is the equation!

Wide! Russell is smart also. It's not all about throwing his bat at the ball. This one is outside off, just outside the tramline, Russell picks it and makes a leave.
17.4

Marcus Stoinis To Andre Russell
SIX! Over long off this time! Russell has unleashed. A fuller length ball outside off, the West Indian pounces onto it and hoists it over the fence. Into the crowd. The Aussie under immense pressure. He was not supposed to bowl this over and it seems that he isn't well warmed up. Well, shots like these will surely warm up the batsman.

Marcus Stoinis To Andre Russell
SIX! Effortless hitting! Stoinis delivers a short ball outside off, gentle pace really, Russell shows his brute power there and spanks it over long on. Is this the momentum shift?
Marcus Stoinis is called on to bowl now... the ball is also a Free Hit!
17.3
nb
Mohammed Siraj To Andre Russell
SIX! Talk about the power this batsman possesses! A high full toss on off, Russell packs a punch and middles his shot perfectly. Sends it packing over wide long on for a biggie. Called a no ball for high full toss. Wait more drama here. We are hearing that this is the second high full toss (beamer) that Siraj has bowled and he has to be taken off.

Navdeep Saini To Dinesh Karthik OUT!
OUT! Saini has the last laugh as DK holes out! The bowler is actually lucky there. A fuller length ball once more, almost similar shot played by Karthik like on the previous delivery where he got it over deep mid-wicket for a biggie. This time though he cannot get under the ball properly. The ball flies to deep mid-wicket where Chahal takes the catch comfortably near the boundary line! Kohli is pumped up and the crowd is going bonkers here. They sense a win! 53 in 18 is the equation now!
16.5
6
Navdeep Saini To Dinesh Karthik
SIX! 10 runs off the last two balls! Saini loses the plot and bowls a half-volley on middle at 141 clicks. Karthik gets under it and hits it just over the deep mid-wicket fence. Pressure on the bowler!

Navdeep Saini To Dinesh Karthik
DROPPED and FOUR! Excellent try though! A length ball outside off, Karthik smashes it wide of mid off. Kohli runs to his left and dives in an attempt to hold on but that was too well struck. The ball ricochets off the skipper's left hand and goes to the rope.

Navdeep Saini To Dinesh Karthik
Short length ball on top of off, Karthik looks to pull it away but the ball gets big on him as it is really pacy. It lobs back over the bowler's head off the top half of the bat. A single is taken.
Navdeep Saini to bowl out.

Yuzvendra Chahal To Dinesh Karthik
Bowled flatter and quicker on the pads, Karthik misses his flick and the ball lobs off the pads to the leg side. A leg bye is stolen. Excellent over from Chahal, 6 runs and a wicket off it at this stage! He ends with amazing figures of 4-0-24-1.

0
Yuzvendra Chahal To Dinesh Karthik
NOT OUT! Just going over the off stump. What a save! Matter of inches. Cricket at its very best. A quicker delivery, a leg spinner from Chahal, landing on middle and straightening from there. Karthik tries to flick but misses and is hit on the back leg. The bowler appeals and the finger goes up after a bit of a delay. DK opts for the replay, the Ultra Edge confirms that there is no bat involved and then the Ball Tracker shows that the ball is heading over.
Review time... Dinesh Karthik has been adjudged LBW here to Chahal but he has gone up straightaway. If there is no edge there, he looks to be struck in front. Let's see what the replays say!
Andre Russell walks out to bat next with 67 runs needed off 26 balls...

Yuzvendra Chahal To Nitish Rana OUT!
OUT! Rana departs! The catch is taken in the deep this time. A flighted delivery wide outside off, again a googly, Rana advances down the track and lofts it over covers. Doesn't get the desired connection though and Klaasen (sub) makes no mistake in the deep. A well-constructed knock by Nitish Rana but his team needed him to last the distance.
15.3
2
Yuzvendra Chahal To Nitish Rana
DROPPED! Siraj once again is the culprit. Tossed up ball outside off, a googly, Rana slices his drive towards point where Siraj stretches to his left but puts down the catch. Two taken.
15.2
2
Yuzvendra Chahal To Nitish Rana
The idea was right but not the execution. Rana pre-meditates a reverse-batted shot and Chahal serves it well wide outside off. Nitish swings his blade and mistimes it over covers for a couple. A better throw from the deep would have made it interesting at the striker's end.

SIX! 101.2 clicks that one from the left-arm tweaker. Rana stays nice and deep in the crease to get under that full one outside off. He lifts it over the long on fielder's head and manages to get a maximum. 72 needed off 30 balls now.

Pawan Negi To Nitish Rana
In the air... but lands well in no man's land. Negi delivers this wide outside off, Rana looks to hit it over cover but the ball goes off the outside half and over point. A couple of runs are taken as Siraj keeps the ball inside the rope with a diving save.

Pawan Negi To Nitish Rana
Bowled wide outside off. Rana looks to reach out but fails to put bat on ball this time. The ball is just inside the tramline and is not a wide.

Pawan Negi To Nitish Rana
FOUR! Exquisite placement! Rana reaches out to this ball outside off and hits it wide to the right of the deep cover fielder. No stopping that. Some pressure off Nitish's shoulders but he will hope for one or two more in this over.

Yuzvendra Chahal To Nitish Rana
Third edge in the over off Rana's bat, only difference is that this one came from the inside part. Shortish on off, Nitish miscues his shot and it runs closely past the stumps to fine leg. Six singles from the over, 13 runs in the last three overs, Bangalore have built good pressure here.

Yuzvendra Chahal To Dinesh Karthik
Probably a flipper, landing short on middle and off, Karthik is hurried into his pull shot and he sends it down to long on for one.

Edged again, safe again. Short and outside off, Rana outside edges his attempted square cut to short third man. Moeen stops it with a dive to his right and they cross.

1
Yuzvendra Chahal To Dinesh Karthik
Loopy delivery, landing full on middle, Karthik gets forward and gently flicks it through mid-wicket for a run.
Strategic break! The match is poised really delicately at this stage but one would have to say that Pawan Negi has turned this game towards his team. Bangalore do look like they have an upper hand right now but Kolkata, with the firepower they have, will not give up. A certain Andre Russell is waiting in the wings but before that, the away side would like these two out in the middle to add as many as possible and take it close. Meanwhile, the hosts would want a few more quick wickets to completely get a hold of the game. Yuzvendra Chahal to bowl after the break!

A delivery bowled in the flatter trajectory around middle, Lynn shimmies down the track and tries to play it with a straight bat. But the ball lands and spins away to beat the outside edge and goes on to disturb the stumps behind. 98 needed off 51 balls.

Marcus Stoinis To Nitish Rana
FIVE RUNS! Overthrows! A length ball outside off, Rana mistimes his cut towards point and sets off for a run. Chahal out there sees Nitish jogging and goes for the throw at the bowler's end. The ball hits the stumps, Rana is inside and the ball then runs towards the opposite direction. It goes to the boundary. Poor cricket this as there was already a fielder backing that up and Moeen Ali who was running to his left should have anticipated a direct hit and waited probably.

Marcus Stoinis To Nitish Rana
SIX! Insult to injury for Stoinis. A catch dropped, a good slower ball and then a maximum off this ball. A short length ball on middle, Rana swivels and pulls it deep over the fine leg boundary. Goes into the second tier that one!

Marcus Stoinis To Chris Lynn
DROPPED! This is criminal! This is just criminal! A length ball outside off, Lynn cuts it away hard over cover and the fielder is just positioned exactly for the same thing. Siraj runs slightly to his right and gets to the ball but fails to hold on. The skipper cannot believe and hides his face in his cap. Could be a huge moment in the game. A single is taken.

Pawan Negi To Robin Uthappa OUT!
OUT! Dot balls built pressure and eventually a wicket falls. Top bowling from Negi. A flatter delivery on off, turning away a bit, Uthappa initially looks to chip it over cover but it appears that he checked his shot at the last moment. Continues with his shot and lofts it over mid off. He is disappointed as soon as it left his bat and looks down. A straightforward catch for Southee in the deep. End of a quickfire partnership, 113 needed off 61 balls now.

FOUR! No need for a Free Hit if such shots can be played! A length ball outside off, Uthappa stands and punches it wide of mid off for a boundary. No one moved there.

Mohammed Siraj To Chris Lynn
Nothing much off the Free Hit! Bowled slower outside off, Lynn looks to smash it over cover, gets a thick outside edge and the ball rolls towards third man for a single only.

Mohammed Siraj To Chris Lynn
No ball and SIX! A full toss above waist height from Siraj! Lynn smashes it over mid-wicket and into the stands. The umpire signals no ball and this is a double bonus for Kolkata. That also brings up the 50-run stand between Lynn and Uthappa.

Mohammed Siraj To Robin Uthappa
In the air... but safe! A length ball outside off, Uthappa looks to flick the ball but gets a thick outside edge that flies towards third man. Chahal out there, looks for safety first and stops the ball on a bounce instead of going for a catch. Kohli is not impressed. A single is taken at the end.

Play and a miss! A touch short outside off and spinning away, Lynn tries to slap it through point but misses. Patel collects the ball and breaks the stumps immediately, but the Aussie never left his crease. A top over by the leggie, just 5 coming off it.

Yuzvendra Chahal To Robin Uthappa
Fullish and on off, Uthappa drills it right back towards the bowler who makes a partial stop. The long off fielder runs forward to pick the ball and they cross.

Once again Chris is deceived in flight. Comes running down the track and then defends it close to his front pad. A muted appeal for an lbw dies down quickly.

Slower bouncer outside off, Lynn looks to cut the ball away but makes contact with only thin air. The batsman looks for a wide call due to the height but finds no support from the umpire. End of the over, Siraj concedes 9 runs off his first.

Mohammed Siraj To Robin Uthappa
Starts off with a full one outside off, pushed towards cover by Uthappa.
Strategic break! Time for both sides to get a breather. Kolkata have lost Narine early but they are well in the game. The duo of Robin Uthappa and Chris Lynn have got boundaries at good consistency and their side is rolling at almost 10 runs per over but now the Powerplay is over and it will be tougher to do so. Virat Kohli and co. will like wickets to keep the run rate under check and to build some pressure on the visitors. Turning out to be quite exciting! Mohammed Siraj to bowl after the break.

Yuzvendra Chahal To Chris Lynn
SIX! Dismissed! Disappeared. He is a powerful striker of the ball. Lynn reads the googly this time and launches it over long on and out of the stadium. Into orbit. Lightning Lynn flashes the giant screen. 102m on the radar, the biggest six of this season. 'Lynnsanity' mode is switched on!

Tim Southee To Robin Uthappa
NOT OUT! Lynn is in and pretty comfortably! A length ball outside off, Uthappa drops it towards cover-point and sets off for a quick single. Heinrich Klaasen at cover-point comes running in and picks up the ball before scoring a direct hit at the striker's end. There is an appeal which is taken upstairs but the replays show that the batsman was well inside. Chris and Kolkata can breathe easy for now!
Direct hit! The appeal is taken upstairs! Klaasen (sub) at cover-point picks up the ball and hits the stumps at the striker's end. Looked like Lynn was just in though to the naked eye. Let's see what the replays have to say...

Navdeep Saini To Sunil Narine OUT!
OUT! It's a fair delivery. Saini strikes gold and has the last laugh in his battle against Narine. Yet another short ball by the bowler has been pulled across the line by Narine. It goes aerially towards fine leg where Negi comes running across to his right, keeps one eye on the rope and smartly catches the ball. A big breakthrough for Bangalore as Narine is that kind of a batsman who has the license to attack and can take the match very quickly away from the opposition.
Narine is caught brilliantly near the fine leg fence by Negi! The umpire is checking for the no ball.

Navdeep Saini To Sunil Narine
FOUR! No stopping this one. Saini continues to pack his deliveries with pace. Seems to not have the real slower ones. Delivers a full toss at 149 kph, following the batsman down the leg side, Narine just clips it off his pads and finds the gap at mid-wicket.
Free Hit coming up...

Navdeep Saini To Sunil Narine
Very full and on middle and off at 152.1 kph, Narine hops back to make room and throws his bat at it. He ends up squeezing it through the gap between short third man and backward point for a couple. Oh dear, it's called a no ball for overstepping. Bonus delivery coming up...

The fielder in the deep makes a valiant dive to his right but does not manage to reach the ball. The start that Kolkata would have liked has come to them.

FIVE WIDES! Southee goes for a bouncer but goes really short. The ball bounces way over the head of the batsman who was ducking. Parthiv Patel cannot reach the ball either. Those are free runs for Kolkata.

DROPPED! How big will this miss prove to be? A short length ball on off, Lynn looks to pull it over mid-wicket but gets a top edge and the ball flies high in the air. Saini from short fine leg runs to catch that, covers a long distance but fails to hold on at the last moment. Really good effort but such catches win you matches. The ball is pulled back inside the rope and a couple of runs are taken.

We are back for the chase. The fielders make their way out and into the positions. Sunil Narine and Chris Lynn are the opening batsmen for Kolkata while Tim Southee of Bangalore has the new ball in his hands. Should be an exciting 20 overs of cricket if Kolkata manage to get near this total, let's play!
