Royal Challengers Bangalore First innings
Marco Jansen4|0|28|2
119.619.6: Marco Jansen to Harshal Patel, Harshal Patel! The man with the ball and he has held his nerves and gets the run to take his side over the line. Very full on middle and leg, Harshal Patel manages to flick it to the left of short fine leg. Bumrah dives and stops the ball but cannot save the run. Take a bow, Harshal Patel! You beauty! BANGALORE WIN BY 2 WICKETS!
019.519.5: Marco Jansen to Mohammed Siraj, SCORES LEVEL! 1 run needed off the final ball now. On the pads, Siraj looks to flick but misses. It hits his pad and goes behind the stump. Ishan Kishan has a lot of ground to cover and Harshal manages to make it count and get the single. 
119.419.4: Marco Jansen to AB de Villiers, OUT! RUN OUT! AB de Villiers is short of his crease. The run around from one side to another has seen AB eat some time and that fraction of seconds has seen him depart here. Length ball on off, AB de Villiers hits it away from Krunal and long on. He takes the run and then does a whole circle to come for the second. Krunal sends a decent throw at the keeper's end. Ishan Kishan takes a brilliant take and quickly disturbs the stumps. AB de Villiers puts a dive but it is not good enough.  He is short of his crease, he knows it, Ishan knows and the replays confirm it. 2 needed off 2 balls.  Super Over anyone? 
119.319.3: Marco Jansen to Harshal Patel, Harshal gets the single. 3 needed in 3 balls now and more importantly. AB de Villiers is on strike. Low full toss on the stumps, Harshal manages to hit towards mid off and takes a single. 
219.219.2: Marco Jansen to Harshal Patel, In the air and away! Two taken and 4 needed off 4 balls now. Full around off, Harshal lofts it over mid off and gets a couple. 
119.119.1: Marco Jansen to AB de Villiers, Single off the first ball of the final over. The hero of the last over in the first innings with the ball, Harshal Patel will have strike now. 
19 Overs | Runs : 153/7 | Run rate : 8.05
118.618.6: Jasprit Bumrah to AB de Villiers, Low full toss on off, AB de Villiers manages to hit to sweeper cover and keep the strike. 7 needed off the last over for Bangalore to win. Anything less than 6, Mumbai take it. 6 and we start the tournament with a Super Over. Do not discount that possibility out folks.
018.518.5: Jasprit Bumrah to Kyle Jamieson, OUT! RUN OUT! Very good work from Bumrah! Low full toss on off, Jamieson hits it straight back towards Bumrah. He gets his right leg to it. The ball goes behind but not too far. AB de Viliiers calls for a run. Jamieson keeps his head down and goes for it. Bumrah quickly gets to the ball and scores an underarm direct hit at the stumps. Was this single needed? This is the last ball off the over. Maybe de Villiers was better staying at the other end and taking on the final over. This game is still in the balance. First game of the tournament and we might be running out of nails already. 
118.418.4: Jasprit Bumrah to AB de Villiers, Yorker! Superb from Bumrah. De Villiers manages to jam it to the on side for a single. 8 needed in 8 balls now.
418.318.3: Jasprit Bumrah to AB de Villiers, FOUR! This is genius at work!  Tremendous from AB de Villiers. He sensed a short ball around off. AB was ready for it. He waits for it and then manages to get it over short third man for a boundary. Bumrah is being outdone here by another freak of a genius.
218.218.2: Jasprit Bumrah to AB de Villiers, Good running! Fullish on middle, AB de Villiers hits it away from Pollard at long on. The Protea calls for two straightaway and the tall Kiwi obliges. 13 needed off 10 balls now.
418.118.1: Jasprit Bumrah to AB de Villiers, FOUR! WHAT A SHOT! AB you beauty! Not many, in fact hardly any player can do that to Bumrah but de Villiers is out of this world. A yorker from Bumrah but de Villiers manages to take it as a full toss and hit it over extra cover for a boundary.
18 Overs | Runs : 141/6 | Run rate : 7.83
117.617.6: Trent Boult to AB de Villiers, Single to end the over. 15 off the over. Spoils the good work done by Bumrah in the previous over a bit. Back of a length ball on off, AB knocks it to long on and keeps the strike. 19 needed off the final 2 overs now.
217.517.5: Trent Boult to AB de Villiers, Length ball on off, AB clears his front leg and hits it to the right of long off. They look for two and get it with ease. This is turning out to be a very good over for Bangalore. 
417.417.4: Trent Boult to AB de Villiers, FOUR! Slammed straight down the ground! Fullish on middle and off, AB de Villiers clears his front leg and smacks it straight as an arrow. Long on and long off come in but the ball dissects them and races to the fence like a bullet. 
117.317.3: Trent Boult to Kyle Jamieson, On middle, Jamieson plays it behind square leg. He calls for a run and they get it. They think about the second. Jamieson is not sure and in the end they stay content with one.
117.217.2: Trent Boult to AB de Villiers, Back of a length delivery outside off, de Villiers slaps it over backward point this time. There is protection in the deep so just a run.
617.117.1: Trent Boult to AB de Villiers, SIX! SMACKED! AB de Villiers stays deep inside his crease, picks the length early and flat-bats it over long off for a biggie. He is called Superman for a reason.

116.616.6: Jasprit Bumrah to AB de Villiers, Length delivery on off, AB de Villiers strokes it to long off and keeps the strike. Another magnificent over from Bumrah. Just 5 runs and a wicket as well off it.
316.516.5: Jasprit Bumrah to Kyle Jamieson, Double team from Jansen and Boult have seemed to have save a boundary here. Good length ball on off, Jamieson clears his front leg and swings. He gets an inside edge that goes to the right of fine leg. Jansen uses his tall, lanky frame and puts a dive. He deflects it towards Boult who charges in from third man. The Kiwi then puts a dive to keep it inside the rope. The double team of a Kiwi and a Protea saves a run for Mumbai.
016.416.4: Jasprit Bumrah to Kyle Jamieson, Length ball on middle, Jamieson knocks it to mid-wicket.
016.316.3: Jasprit Bumrah to Dan Christian, OUT! CAUGHT! Dan Christian departs and Bumrah does what he does best. Come, give his skipper, the vital breakthroughs, and win the clutch situations. This was not Bumrah's best delivery. In fact it was a ball to be put away. Short and wide outside off. Generally, an Aussie will smack it to the fence. Christian cuts it with power but finds Rahul Chahar to perfection at backward point. A few inches either side of the fielder and that would have been a boundary.
016.216.2: Jasprit Bumrah to Dan Christian, Bumrah special for Christian. A yorker which hard to get off. It is outside off, Christian for all his experience can only play it back to the bowler. 
116.116.1: Jasprit Bumrah to AB de Villiers, Good start from Bumrah to his third over. He bowls a dipping low full toss on the stumps. Not easy to get it away. AB can just get it to long off for one. 
16 Overs | Runs : 121/5 | Run rate : 7.56
115.615.6: Rahul Chahar to AB de Villiers, De Villiers now uses his feet and gets to the pitch of the ball. He turns it to the on side and looks for two but the Mumbai fielder is quick to get to the ball and Christian is quick to squash the thoughts of the second. 
215.515.5: Rahul Chahar to AB de Villiers, Short outside off, AB de Villiers punches it away from sweeper cover and gets a couple.

115.315.3: Rahul Chahar to AB de Villiers, Wrong 'un now. It has spun and bounced as well. Floated on leg, AB de Villiers looks to paddle but looks to have missed. The ball bounces and hits the grill of Ishan Kishan and then deflects behind square leg. They take a run and it has been awarded as a run.
615.215.2: Rahul Chahar to AB de Villiers, SIX! SMOKED! AB de Villiers, can he be the savior once again for Bangalore?  A boundary is followed by a maximum and this does a world of good for Bangalore. Flighted around off, AB de Villiers decides to go downtown and smokes it over long off for a biggie.
415.115.1: Rahul Chahar to AB de Villiers, FOUR! What a shot! A much-needed one for Bangalore. Short on off, de Villiers smacks it with the spin through covers for a boundary.
15 Overs | Runs : 106/5 | Run rate : 7.07
014.714.6: Marco Jansen to Shahbaz Ahmed, OUT! CAUGHT! What an over this has been! Two wickets and not many runs from it! Short ball around middle, Ahmed pulls it but has it got the distance on it? No, it has not as it goes straight into the hands of Krunal Pandya at deep square leg. 54 needed in 30 balls. A lot depends on AB de Villiers now.

012.312.3: Jasprit Bumrah to Virat Kohli, OUT! LBW! Rohit Sharma brings back Jasprit Bumrah in order to bring a wicket and he provides it in the form of Kohli. He loves playing against the Bangalore skipper and he gets him again. Good length ball on middle, Kohli shuffles across and then looks to flick but misses and gets hit on the pads.

Knuckle ball bowled on a length outside off. Patidar looks to defend it with a horizontal bat to the off side. It is too close to him and there is a lack of pace as well.

Yorker on middle and leg, Kishan fails to dig it out and gets hit on the pads. There is an appeal for LBW but the umpire says no.

012.512.5: Washington Sundar to Chris Lynn, OUT! CAUGHT! Brilliant catch from Washington Sundar! Lynn departs on 49! A very good knock from Lynn but he will not get a fifty in his debut game for Mumbai. Washington Sundar strikes in his very first over and it is the end of Lynnsanity. It needed an athletic catch from Wahington Sundar and the man from Tamil Nadu has the athleticism to send the Australian back to the dug out.  Slightly shorter on middle, Lynn looks to flat-bat it straight over the bowler's end. This time he does not get enough on it as the ball is a fraction too close to him. He chips it behind mid on. Washington Sundar runs behind, not as easy it looks. He stretches to maximum and manages to take a very good catch. A big and much-needed wicket for Bangalore. A debut that started off poorly for Lynn ends in a very good knock. A very good recovery from the Australian.

After being hit for a six he has come back very strongly to win the war against Suryakumar Yadav. Jamieson hits the deck hard and bowls it back of a length outside off. Suryakumar Yadav looks to slash it through the off side but Jamieson generates extra bounce due to his height. Tha bounce sees the ball catch the edge and go straight into the mitts of AB de Villiers. End of a very impressive knock from Suryakumar Yadav.

03.63.6: Yuzvendra Chahal to Chris Lynn, OUT! RUN OUT! A massive wicket for Bangalore as they have got the danger man, the Mumbai skipper, Rohit Sharma. Lynn, who has had a very nervy start, has made it even more difficult for himself. Getting your skipper, who was looking in decent touch run out in your debut outing for a new side is a big no-no.

01.51.5: Kyle Jamieson to Chris Lynn, Lucky! Length ball on middle and leg. Lynn looks to play his trademark punch by creating room. He does not get away enough and gets an inside edge that goes behind the stumps.
01.41.4: Kyle Jamieson to Chris Lynn, EDGED BUT DOES NOT CARRY! Low bounce on this and that saves Lynn! Good length ball bowled at around 129 kph. Lynn looks to drive and goes with hard hands at it.

00.20.2: Mohammed Siraj to Rohit Sharma,  Much better from Siraj. Hits the right length and line. Pulls his length back and bowls it on off and middle. Rohit defends it with a straight bat.
