Tossed up ball, landing full on middle, Faf du Plessis kneels down for the sweep shot but is a shade early into the shot. His bottom hand comes off too as he plays it aerially to short fine leg off the top half of his blade. Navdeep Saini grabs the catch safely as he goes down. 86 needed off 65 balls, game on?

8.2 overs (0 Run) OUT! Virat Kohli has taken a stunner! He roars in delight but Faf du Plessis asks the batsman to wait as he feels it touched the ground. Nothing on the replays though. It's a clean one, the opening stand has been broken. 86 needed off 70 balls. Coming to the delivery, it's nicely flighted and lands full around off, Ruturaj Gaikwad strides forward to play the inside-out shot probably but only manages to slice it towards backward point. It's dipping in front of the fielder but Virat Kohli reacts in time and dives forward to snap it inches above the surface. The umpires get it checked but as mentioned earlier, it's a clean catch. Can Bangalore capitalize on this breakthrough?
Is the catch cleanly taken? The umpires have gone upstairs but Kohli seems confident. The replay shows that it's a fair catch and Ruturaj Gaikwad has to depart.

Strategic Time-Out! The Chennai openers have plundered the bowling and have made a fast start. Both Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad seem to be confident out there. Virat Kohli has chopped and changed his bowlers in the Powerplay but hasn't found any respite. Bangalore shouldn't be too disheartened as we saw what happened in the first innings in the middle overs. Can the Bangalore bowlers pull up their socks and get back into the game?
5.6 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Bludgeoned. Navdeep Saini speeds in and serves a very full ball around off, Faf du Plessis stays back, clears his front leg and spanks it past the left side of the mid off fielder.

5.3 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Boom! A half-tracker again, slower one at 110 clicks, Faf du Plessis picks it up this time, stays on the back foot and pulls it powerfully to the deep mid-wicket. He has knocked the stitches out of this one. 50 up!
5.2 overs (0 Run) Clever slower one. At 126.9 kph, Saini goes short and on middle, Faf du Plessis tries his best to pull but is way too early into the shot.
5.1 overs (6 Runs) SIX! Huge! Faf du Plessis is a magnificent Powerplay batsman for Chennai. Saini delivers it on a length and in the line of the stumps, Faf clears his front leg and hoists it over long on for a maximum.
