“I got a few 96, and a 97, so hopefully (a ton) is around the corner. We needed someone to stabilise the innings and then get going at the back end. Today, grateful that I could do it. Important that I am able to follow my blueprint of batting… We need to just working on our strengths and we actually can get better in a few things.”
19.5 - Jason Holder (16 off 8) departs after hitting two sixes. Harshal Patel gets his second wicket today.
19.6 - a dot ball and RCB win the game by 18 runs.
18.2 - Lapse in concentration and Marcus Stoinis has chopped a Josh Hazlewood delivery on his stumps. The previous ball was a wide on the offside but umpire Chris Gaffaney didn't declare it a wide. Stoinis was unhappy with the decision. Though he maintained a smiling face at that time, but when he lost his wicket on the very next ball, his yelling said it all.
Just 3 runs came off the over and a wicket. LSG need 31 off the last over.
Harshal Patel continues to be expensive today but LSG still need 34 off 12 balls.
LSG 148/6 (18)
16.4 - Ayush Badoni is out on run-a-ball 13 and this wicket will tell you the importance of experience. Josh Hazlewood bowled way outside the off stump as Badoni came across the wicket and tried to sweep the ball on the leg side. The Indian youngster edged the ball to wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik.
10 runs came off the over and a wicket.
LSG 138/6 (17)
15.5 - A short ball from Wanindu Hasaranga and Marcus Stoinis rocks back and pulls it straight over long-on for a SIX. He is such a strong batsman. LSG need many more from him today.
11 runs came off the over. LSG need 54 in 24.
LSG 128/5 (16)
Ayush Badoni is playing well today. He is a confident batter and if he manages to take his side home today, he will become a hero. Marcus Stoinis is at the other end and if both of them get going, the target of 182 can be chased by LSG.
LSG 117/5 (15)
13.4 - A short ball from Glenn Maxwell and Krunal Pandya has hit it straight into the throat of deep mid-wicket. The pressure of required run rate gets better of Pandya.
Just 6 runs came off the over and a wicket. Brilliant from Maxwell. LSG need 72 in 36.
LSG 110/5 (14)
12.2 - Mohammed Siraj has got the wicket of Deepak Hooda (13 of 14). It was a short ball bowled outside off and Hooda hit it high in the air in front of third man where Suyash Prabhudessai took a really good catch by running forward.
12.6 - FOUR from Ayush Badoni! Oh, such a beautiful flick shot it is from the youngster. He has such strong wrists that the ball went to deep-mid wicket boundary for a FOUR in no time.
5 runs came off the over and a wicket.
LSG 104/4 (13)
Harshal Patel has failed to impress today. He has conceded 25 runs off his two overs so far in this innings. LSG need 83 more in 48.
LSG 99/3 (12)
Shahbaz Ahmed ends his quota of four overs with figures of 0/25. He got good turn from the surface and utilized it well. Though he was unlucky enough to not get a wicket, his spell has definitely helped RCB. LSG need 94 more off 54 balls.
LSG 88/3 (11)
Krunal Pandya has made sure that the scoreboard keeps ticking despite the fall of wickets. He is unbeaten on 25 off 16 balls. LSG need 110 in 66. The required run rate is exactly 10 per over. Given the pitch has turn for spinners and some good bounce that is helping pacers as well, this chase is not going to be easy for RCB.
LSG 72/3 (9)
What a review it is from RCB! Harshal Patel has got the wicket of KL Rahul. That's a big blow to LSG. It was bowled down the leg side. Umpire felt it brushed past Rahul's pad, but RCB decided to review it and to everyone's surprise Rahul was found to have got a fine edge on it.
LSG 64/3 (8)
Two FOURS from Krunal Pandya on the last two balls of Mohammed Siraj's second over and RCB end the powerplay at 44/2.
LSG 44/2 (6)
Manish Pandey is out! Josh Hazlewood cramped Manish for room and the latter hit the back-of-a-length delivery directly into the hands of Harshal Patel at short.mid-wicket
LSG 33/2 (5)
2.5 - It was a beautiful ball from Josh Hazlewood and Quinton de Kock edged it to first slip. The Australia pacer bowled it on the off side and the extra amount of bounce outplayed de Kock.
3 runs came off the over and a wicket. This is a good start for RCB.
LSG 17/1 (3)
Just 5 runs came off Glenn Maxwell's first over. He bowled tight lines and had almost got the wicket of KL Rahul but the LSG skipper was a bit lucky to survive.
LSG 14/0 (2)
0.2 - A short of a length delivery bounced a bit more and hit Quinton de Kock on his gloves. It hurt de Kock and the play stopped for a short time for medical care.
9 runs came off the over.
LSG 9/0 (1)
Quinton de Kock takes the strike, KL Rahul is at the non-striker's end. Mohammed Siraj has the new ball in hand. Here we go!
Dushmantha Chameera struck twice in the first over of the innings but Glenn Maxwell's cameo (23 off 11) kept them going. Once the Australian fell, Faf du Plessis (96 off 64) took all the responsibilities on his shoulders and lifted Royal Challengers Bangalore to a good total. The second innings starts in 5 minutes.
19.5 - This is brilliant bowling from Jason Holder. He choke both Dinesh Karthik and Faf du Plessis with tight line and length before claiming the wicket of the set South African batter. Faf departs on his individual score of 96 off 64. Incredible knock!
Just 4 runs came off the over and a wicket. Jason Holder returns 2/25.
RCB 181/6 (20)
Here is the first boundary from the bat of in-form Dinesh Karthik. Avesh Khan bowled it outside off stump and Kathik connected it right from the meat of the bat. 13 runs came off the over. Can RCB get to 200? Well, let's see...
RCB 177/5 (19)
The idea to hand Ravi Bishnoi the ball in the slog over didn't work for KL Rahul as the youngster leaked 14 runs in the over. Two FOURS came in it, both were hit by Faf du Plessis, who is unbeaten on 90 off 58 balls. His maiden IPL century seems round the corner. It's just a matter of two to three hits.
RCB 164/5 (18)
Despite having a good strike rate this season under his belt, Dinesh Karthik is just trying to keep Faf du Plessis on strike for most of the time because he knows Faf is a set better and can play big shots more comfortably. This is what you call maturity and match awareness.
10 runs came off Avesh Khan's third over.
RCB 150/5 (17)
15.2 - Shahbaz Ahmed is run out! What a waste of an opportunity this is from the Indian player. He had got a good start today and now it was his time to capitalize it but he failed, courtesy a run-out.
10 runs came off the over and a wicket.
RCB 140/5 (16)
It's so easy for Faf du Plessis to hit boundaries when he gets set. A true example of lazy elegance. His backlift and swing will tell you that he might miss the ball, but he always connects with perfection.
13 runs came off Krunal Pandya's fourth over. He finishes with figures of 1/29, not bad according to the match situation.
RCB 130/4 (15)
13.5 - A single from Faf du Plessis and he gets to his 24th IPL fifty in 40 balls. This has been a beautiful knock from the RCB captain. It has come under pressure as he kept losing his partners from the other end.
10 runs came off the over.
RCB 117/4 (14)
Faf du Plessis twice tried to come outside off stump and play a scoop on the balls of Dushmantha Chameera but the Sri Lankan bowler just followed him to pour cold water on his plans.
RCB 107/4 (13)
11.6 - A single from Faf du Plessis and RCB race to 100 runs. The duo of Faf (40 not out off 33) and Shahbaz Ahmed (16 not out off 14) has added 38 runs in 28 balls for the fifth wicket.
RCB 100/4 (12)
Royal Challengers Bangalore's run rate is 8.4 per over. This is good batting display from the side. Yes, they have lost four wickets but the scoring rate has been good so far. This pitch is not a belter for sure and anything over 170 would be a good target.
RCB 92/4 (11)
Both Faf du Plessis and Shahbaz Ahmed are playing with maturity. They are scoring at a good pace without taking any risk. 8.78 is the current run rate of RCB despite losing four important wickets.
RCB 79/4 (9)
7.2 - Suyash Prabhudessai is out! Jason Holder gets the wicket. He saw Suyash coming down the track, and dragged his length a bit. The ball probably stuck to the surface before hitting the upper part of Suyash's bat and going into the hands of Krunal Pandya at short mid-wicket.
Just 3 runs came off the over and a wicket.
RCB 65/4 (8)
15 runs came off Ravi Bishnoi's first over. This is poor bowling from him. RCB were under pressure and he could have used it to his profit, but he rather eased off their pressure.
RCB 62/3 (7)
5.2 - This is a big wicket for LSG. Glenn Maxwell gets out on 23 off 11. He tried to hit a reverse-sweep to Krunal Pandya. It was not executed well and Jason Holder took a brilliant catch at short third man. Brilliant combination of bowling, fielding and captaincy!
Just 4 runs came off the over and a wicket.
RCB 47/3 (6)
Dushmantha Chameera had taken two wickets in his previous over but concedes 19 runs off his second over. Glenn Maxwell hit him for two FOURS and a SIX after Faf du Plessis too hit a FOUR early in the over.
RCB 29/2 (3)
0.5 - Chameera gets Anuj Rawat's wicket. He was hit for a FOUR in the previous ball, but gets his revenge now. Anuj mishit the ball to the right of KL Rahul at mid-off and the LSG skipper took an extremely good catch.
0.6 - Kohli is out! A big wicket for Chemmera and LSG. It was a short ball outside off and Kohli played it into the hands of backward point. He gets out on zero.
7 runs came off the over and two wickets. It's a dream start for Chameera and LSG.
RCB 7/2 (1)
Dushmantha Chameera has the new ball in hand. Anuj Rawat takes the strike, Faf du Plessis is at the other end. Here we go!

Lucknow Super Giants: KL Rahul (c), Quinton de Kock (w), Manish Pandey, Marcus Stoinis, Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Jason Holder, Dushmantha Chameera, Avesh Khan, Ravi Bishnoi
Royal Challengers Bangalore: Faf du Plessis (c), Anuj Rawat, Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, Suyash Prabhudessai, Shahbaz Ahmed, Dinesh Karthik (w), Wanindu Hasaranga, Harshal Patel, Josh Hazlewood, Mohammed Siraj
Lucknow Super Giants skipper KL Rahul has won the toss and opted to bowl first against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Head coaches keep talking about team balance. Lucknow have looked solid in terms of all-round capacity. If Jason Holder and Krunal Pandya were not enough, the introduction of Marcus Stoinis has given LSG more muscle. RCB have depth too with Josh Hazlewood adding variety to the Bangalore attack that has Harshal Patel and Wanindu Hasaranga.
Dinesh Karthik has looked like a man possessed in this IPL. He has been relentless in finishing matches and merciless on the fast bowlers. Many see him making a comeback to the Indian team for the World T20 later this year but DK has to keep performing to win the trust of the national selectors. Karthik's first-ten-balls strike rate of 214 is the best among batsmen with a minimum of 75 runs this season.
