22:54 (IST)06 Nov 2020
SRH need 18 in 2 overs

It'll be Saini and Siraj in the last 3 vs Williamson and Holder. 28 runs. 3 overs. Which way will this low-scoring thriller sway? Saini bowls the 18th. Williamson smashes. For six. Padikkal grabs it on the ropes but is not able to hold on to it. Five runs saved. Williamson does manage to time a four through third man later in the over. 10 come off the over.

Williamson leads SRH towards target - SRH need 28 in 3 overs

22:37 (IST)06 Nov 2020

22:30 (IST)06 Nov 2020
Spin bogs down middle overs

Chahal strikes now! The leggies are doing it for RCB. Garg slams hard but straight to Zampa in the deep. Holder comes in at 6. Moeen Ali's off spin in the 13th. And still the runs are hard to come by. SRH 72/4 after 13

22:16 (IST)06 Nov 2020
SRH 60/3 after 10, need 72 more to win

Priyam Garg enters at 5, joins Williamson. SRH need to hold their nerve now. Zampa has conceded just 2 runs in his first 2 overs and has taken a big wicket. RCB stick to Chahal in the 10th. They cannot let up on pressure. SRH 60/3 after 10

22:10 (IST)06 Nov 2020
Zampa gets Pandey

A massive moment in the game with Warner having given out under contentious circumstances. Kane Williamson joins Pandey. RCB go to their leg spin duo Chahal and Zampa. They've got a spin heavy attack tonight. Just the one single in Zampa's over. Five singles in Chahal's over. Zampa then gets Pandey! Another big wicket! RCB are roaring back! Pandey is caught behind. Another catch for ABD. What a match he is having! Pandey is out for 24. SRH 55/3 after 8.3

21:55 (IST)06 Nov 2020
Siraj cuts short Warner carnage - tough decision for third umpire

Pandey starts off the 4th over with a four too. Just past the fielder at mid on. Pandey ends the over with another four - through the covers. Washington Sundar bowls the 5th. Warner crashes a four through the covers. Pandey does the same later in the over. Four more. 12 runs in the over. Siraj bowls the 6th. Warner starts the over with two fours crashed through off. Then there is a huge appeal for caught behind! Umpire says not out. Warner stays. RCB review. Ultraedge shows a spike. But the ball is close to both glove and thigh pad. A touch-and-go decision. Aaaaand it's OUT. Warner out for 17. SRH 43/2 after 5.4

21:39 (IST)06 Nov 2020
Pandey hits Siraj for six

Saini bowls the 2nd over. Lots of aggressive shouting being heard in the field as Kohli's RCB bear down upon Warner and Pandey. Two runs come each in the first two overs. Siraj continues in the 3rd. Pandey smashes a six over deep midwicket. That should get SRH underway. SRH 13/1 after 3

21:29 (IST)06 Nov 2020
Siraj gets early breakthrough

Goswami out for a duck. Siraj gets swing in the air. And the batsman gets a nick through to ABD. Early wicket! Manish Pandey enters at 3. SRH 2/1 after 1

21:24 (IST)06 Nov 2020
Chase begins

Warner and Shreevats Goswami - playing his first match - open for SRH. Will Warner look to kill things off early? Can RCB attack the new batsman and break open the SRH batting order? Siraj will open the attack. Chase begins. With a wide.

21:08 (IST)06 Nov 2020
SRH will chase 132 to win

Improvisation from Siraj. Brute force from Saini. Some lucky runs for RCB in the last over. Natarajan bowls the yorker. Siraj ramps. For four! Past the keeper. A couple to finish. RCB end with 131/7 in 20 overs.

21:05 (IST)06 Nov 2020
RCB 122/7 after 19.2

Saini and Siraj out to bat for RCB with two overs left. They would have preferred to share new ball bowling duties, but it's their lot today to see out this batting innings. Holder and Natarajan to bowl the last 2 overs. 5 singles from the 19th, Holder finishes with 3/25. Saini swings like a cavalier in the last over, but misses the ball by a distance. Does it again next ball. Four to third man. RCB cross 120.

20:59 (IST)06 Nov 2020
Ball of the match: Natarajan gets ABD for 56

Another wicket. Sundar picks out Samad in the deep as Natarajan bowls the 18th over. That brings out Navdeep Saini at 8. But it's Natarajan who strikes again! An yorker! AB de Villiers bowled! What an yorker. Needed such a special delivery to get the danger man out. De Villiers is out for 56. RCB 113/7 after 17.5

20:52 (IST)06 Nov 2020
50 for ABD

ABD gets to his 50 in the 16th over. Finds the gap wide of long on for four. Sundar out to join him, but it has to be the South African who takes the lion's share of the strike in the time that remains. Sandeep Sharma back to bowl his last over in the 17th. Sundar comes out slashing, but only for singles. RCB 111/5 after 17

20:44 (IST)06 Nov 2020
Holder's 3rd wicket

Rashid Khan finishes his spell with 0/22 in 4. RCB have dealt reasonably well with SRH's most dangerous bowler, it has to be said, despite their lack of success against the others. Holder, SRH's most successful bowler, back to bowl the 16th. And he picks up a third! Shivam Dube holes out at mid off with a leading edge. RCB's collapse continues. Holder's dream day continues. RCB 99/5 after 15.4

20:39 (IST)06 Nov 2020
ABD shifts gears

Natarajan back in the 14th. ABD slashes for four through the covers again. Rashid Khan bowls his last over in the 15th. Dube swings. Misses. RCB do not have much batting to come after this - though there is Sundar to come after this. They simply cannot afford any more wickets. ABD pushes a single into a double, moves into his 40s. Sweeps for four. ABD is getting a move on! RCB 93/4 after 15

20:30 (IST)06 Nov 2020
De Villiers moves into 30s

Just as Finch and ABD were looking to provide a but of a platform for RCB to finish strongly, the double wicket blow has again pegged them back. Rashid Khan continues, giving nothing away (or 3 runs in his third over, to be more precise). Nadeem continues in the 13th. ABD slashes for four, getting his strike rate above 100 for the first time. RCB 76/4 after 13
