Milne to Finch, FOUR, to deep backward point


A four and a six off two Milne deliveries. McCullum is on fire


McCullum dispatches Shane Watson for a six


It seems Gujarat Lions have lost the momentum. GL in last 4 overs: 38 runs, 1 wkts


Aaron Finch and Brendon McCullum looking to steady the GL innings. McCullum is the batsman who can play a Gayle-like knock to chase down this target


Gujarat Lions in last 4 overs: 46 runs, 2 wkts


Chahal to Raina, out Caught by Watson on 23

#10:00 PM

Aravind to Raina, FOUR,

Three runs of the over and now Sreenath Aravind is brought into the attack. 

#9:57 PM

Out!! The Spin trick working here for RCB. Smith departs. Sees the shortened length goes for it but misstimes his shot. 

Yuzvendra Chahal, right-arm leg break, comes into the attack. Kohli decides to attack with spin from both ends.

#9:55 PM

Just one run off the first over!! Negi bowled that beautifully. Ye sher itna shant kyu h bhai? (Why the Lion is so silent?) 

Dwayne Smith and Brendon McCullum are at the crease. Dwayne Smith is on strike. Negi will open the attack

Innings Break!!


RCB put RCB 213 runs on board. Might turn out to be a tough chase for GL


Another big six from Jadhav


FOUR!!! 200 comes up for RCB


Tough day for Andrew Tye. 18 runs off the over

#9:34 PM

FOUR, drops it short and pays the price. Very expensive over from Tye. 16 off his last over 

#9:32 PM

Andrew Tye to Kedar Jadhav, SIX and a FOUR!! Jhadav is spoiling Tye's stats. He comes to bowl with 16 of 3 overs. 

Tye comes to bowl his last over

#9:29 PM

Four again!! Travis is keeping his 'Head' high.  Back to back boundaries. 

#9:28 PM

Basil Thampi to Head, FOUR, Slow ball, easly predicted by Head and pulls it in front square.

#9:26 PM

Basil Thampi [3.0-0-19-1] is back into the attack. He has been very economical today. Conceded just a lil more than 6 runs per over.

#9:24 PM

Good over from Tye after that first ball boundary. 6 off the over. 

#9:22 PM

Andrew Tye to Kedar Jadhav, FOUR, to third man. After the much-needed strikes from Kohli and Gayle now Jadhav is the man who needs to fire if RCB wants to go beyond 200. Anything less than 200 would be risky as Gujarat is playing on their home ground. 

#9.21 PM

Kedar Jadhav, right handed bat, comes to the crease


Virat Kohli departs. Dwayne Smith takes the catch!! 


Knocks by Gayle, Kohli propel RCB to big total


SIX!! It's Virat Kohli's turn to take on the GL

SIX!!! Chris Gayle at his best. 7 sixes!!!!


Another massive SIX from Gayle. 100 comes up for RCB. That's explosive batting


Chris Gayle makes a comeback, completes fifty in 23 balls


This is splendid stuff from the RCB. Chris Gayle is on the verge of a much-awaited fifty. The opening pair has amassed 83 runs in just nine overs


Chris Gayle survives a scare. The West Indian has hit 4 sixes in the innings so far


Chris Gayle is on fire. Seems he has back to his usual best


Another towering SIX from Chris Gayle. RCB in last 4 overs: 36 runs, 0 wkts


Shivil to Gayle, six, to long off


Full-toss from Thampi dispached for a six. That's Chris Gayle for you
