After bundling out Kings XI for paltry 88, RCB chased down the target with consummate ease, reaching 92 for no loss in 8.1 overs. Skipper Virat Kohli led from the front with the bat with an unbeaten 48 while Parthiv Patel made unbeaten 40 to help RCB romp home. Kohli struck six fours and two towering sixes during his 28-ball unbeaten knock, while Parthiv's innings was laced with seven boundaries. While Kings XI slumped to their third successive loss, RCB improved upon their net run rate by sealing the victory in 8.1 overs. RCB now have 10 points from 12 games, same as Kings XI with two games remaining for the both teams. (Scorecard)

Sent into bat, Kings XI innings never got going as they lost wickets like pack of cards from the onset to be bowled out in 15.1 overs.    Backed by some good fielding, Umesh Yadav (3/23) came up with an impressive bowling effort up front to destabilise the Kings XI innings.    Besides, Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal (1/6), Colin de Grandhomme (1/8), Moeen Ali (1/13) and Mohammed Siraj (1/17) picked up a wicket each. Aaron Finch top-scored for Kings XI with a 23-ball 26 while KL Rahul made 21 up the order. RCB bowlers were very well complemented by some good outfield catching and three runs outs. Kings XI witnessed a terrible start to their innings after being sent into bat as they lost four wickets with the scoreboard reading just 50 in 6.5 overs.

Rahul gave Kings XI a brisk start with a 15-ball 21 in the company of Chris Gayle (18) before Yadav struck twin blows in the fifth over, dismissing both the openers. While Rahul pulled one straight to de Grandhomme a deep square leg, Gayle departed in similar fashion caught by Siraj off another short delivery three balls later. To make matters worse for Kings XI, Karun Nair edged a delivery straight to RCB skipper Kohli at the lone slip in the next over.    Wickets kept on tumbling for Kings XI as Marcus Stoinis and Mayank Agarwal too perished when their team needed them the most.    While Stoinis was cleaned up by Chahal, Agarwal got a faint edge to a de Grandhomme delivery in the leg side and Patel did the rest behind the stumps.

From there on, Kings XI never really recovered and were eventually bundled out for the second lowest total of this years IPL, courtesy some brilliant work at the field by RCB fielders.

Right, we're done with this! Bangalore get important two points with their 3rd 10-wicket win in the League, and the NRR will surely come into play later on, which is also a big boost. They'll surely be happy and take the momentum from this. Punjab slip to 5th place and have lost yet another game at home. That makes it 5 losses out of their last 6. They need to get their act together, and fast. Anyway, the action continues as on 15th May, Kolkata host Rajasthan at Eden Gardens at 2000 local (1430 GMT). Another crucial encounter in the context of the season. Do join in for that. See you then, folks!

Umesh Yadav is declared as the Man of the Match. He scalped 3 wickets in his 4-over spell, which included the likes of Chris Gayle and KL Rahul.

A poor performance from Punjab. Plain and simple. The batsmen heavily let them down. If your highest scorer has just 26, then that should say everything right there. In an attempt to score 200, you often end up less than 100, and that's what happened here. No sensibility was shown from the Punjab batsmen and it proved to be their undoing. The bowlers were left with no chance. Their performance tonight becomes irrelevant. A lot to ponder for Ravichandran Ashwin and his side.

!

An emphatic and a much-needed victory for Bangalore. They had to win, a clinical performance was needed and it came, in all departments. Skipper Kohli would be quite pleased at this. First, they did the job with the ball, where Umesh Yadav was the spearhead picking up 3 wickets. And then, with a paltry target of 89 to chase, the two openers, Kohli and Parthiv, finished things off with absolute ease. Well inside 9 overs. This will do a world of good to their confidence and significantly better their NRR.

Ankit Rajpoot to Virat Kohli

FOUR! It's a boundary, but no half century for Virat Kohli. Falls just short of it. Short ball, he swings hard and gets a big top edge over the keeper's head, to the fence behind. BANGALORE WIN BY 10 WICKETS!

Ankit Rajpoot to Virat Kohli

No ball! The match could have been over, but Kohli doesn't take the extra run. Wants to try and get to his fifty. He hits the high full toss down to long off where Andrew Tye drops the catch. Free Hit coming up...

!

Ankit Rajpoot brought on. Probably the last over of the match.

Andrew Tye to Virat Kohli

Single to end the over. Kohli pushes it to long on and retains strike. 2 runs to win, but he's on 44. A biggie and he gets to fifty. Will he do it?

Andrew Tye to Parthiv Patel

Shortish in length, pulled behind square leg for one.

Andrew Tye to Parthiv Patel

FOUR! Beautiful. Back of a length outside off, Parthiv plays the ramp shot over the vacant slip cordon. Plays it quite fine, it runs away to the fence.
