Devdutt Padikkal drops Andre Russell at long-off!

Just when you thought RCB had everything in control, Devdutt Padikkal drops Andre Russell at long-off. A slower delivery by Chris Morris and Russell tries to clear the ropes. However, his shot fails to clear the boundary ropes and Padikkal dives and almost picks a stunning catch to send Russell back in the dugout. KKR:71/5 (13 overs) 

22:29 (IST)12 Oct 2020
Washington Sundar removes Eoin Morgan from the equation

Washington Sundar continues his dominance as he removes Eoin Morgan from the equation. The ball was pithed up and Morgan tired to direct the ball towards the gully region.

Big blow for KKR!

Big blow for KKR and this could be a huge loss as a well-set Shubman Gill makes his way back to the dugout. It all started with Morgan and Gill trying to steal a single off Isuru Udana, but a great fielding effort by AB de Villiers inflict the damage on KKR. He collects a strong throw from Udana and doesn't waste any time to dislodge the stumps. KKR: 60/3 (9.3 overs) 

22:14 (IST)12 Oct 2020
Review lost!

Appeal for a caught-behind in the next ball and Chahal thinks he has got his man here. However, the umpire feels there was no bat involved but Kohli decides to take a review. TV replay confirms that the ball hits Eoin Morgan's hands before settling in AB de Villiers' gloves. KKR: 52/2 (8.2 overs)  

22:12 (IST)12 Oct 2020

22:09 (IST)12 Oct 2020
That will be the end of Nitish Rana!

That will be the end of Nitish Rana. An angled delivery by Washington Sundar, coming at a decent pace and Rana goes down on his knees and tries to play it across the line.

22:01 (IST)12 Oct 2020
Powerplays are done!

21:56 (IST)12 Oct 2020
Batsmen target Siraj!

Mohammed Siraj is being targeted as the weaklink in the RCB bowling setup. Nitish Rana welcomes him with a solid drive and Shubman Gill finishes the over with a boundary followed by a SIX. A total of 16 runs come from it as KKR reach 39/1 after 5 overs. 

21:51 (IST)12 Oct 2020
Ideal start for RCB!

Finally some positive intent from KKR batsman Shubman Gill. He starts off with a cracking boundary against Navdeep Saini and then continues to rotate the strike. 

However, the bowler picks up a wicket on his final delivery. A good length delivery by Saini and it takes the inside edge of Tom Banton's bat and knocks the stumps out. The IPL debutant departs after scoring 8 from 12 balls. KKR: 23/1 (4 overs)
