He cunningly takes the pace off the ball and outfoxes the West Indian. Slower ball which is full on off, Holder looks to go downtown and smack it over long off.

016.616.6: Shahbaz Ahmed to Abdul Samad, OUT! CAUGHT! What an over this has turned out to be! Three wicket in the over and this has made Bangalore the favourites now, surely. This is poor cricket from Hyderabad. Another batsman tries to play across the line and falls. He saw what happened to the other batters who tried it in this over and Samad makes the same mistake. Probably the adrenaline of the youngster got the better of him. Floated on off, Samad  looks to slog it over on the side. He gets a top edge which goes high in the air.

Manish Pandey, the man who was well-set, the man who should have seen off the game is out of here too. This is poor cricket from Manish. Flighted delivery on off, Manish too looks to hit it across the line. He gets a top edge too. This one goes towards backward point. Harshal Patel there keeps his eyes on the ball and takes the catch.
016.116.1: Shahbaz Ahmed to Jonny Bairstow, OUT! CAUGHT! Shahbaz Ahmed has done the damage right after the break. AB de Villiers, he failed to deliver with the bat but he has taken a very good catch. A catch that is very crucial. Floated delivery on middle and off. Bairstow looks to slog his sweep across the line. He gets a tp edge which goes towards short mid-wicket. AB de Villiers calls for the skier. He has the glove, he calls for it and manages to take the catch.

214.414.4: Shahbaz Ahmed to Manish Pandey, IN THE AIR BUT SAFE! Floated delivery on off, it is bowled very slow and given a lot of air. Pandey comes down the track and looks to go downtown.

013.213.2: Kyle Jamieson to David Warner, OUT! CAUGHT! Warner departs and is this the turning point in this game? The return of Kyle Jamieson does the trick as the dangerous and more importantly, well set Warner is back to the dugout. We saw something similar last game as Mumbai came from the dead to win the game, can Banglaore do the same here? Another slower short ball. This one sticks in the surface too. Warner looks to slam it over long on but does not time it well and hits it to the fielder there. Dan Christian there takes a good low catch. Warner is furious and Hyderabad still need 54 to win this.

00.40.4: Mohammed Siraj to Wriddhiman Saha, Good start from Siraj here. This one he hits the deck hard and makes the ball come back in. Saha taps it behind point and is eager to get to the other end. Warner though does not take the risky run.

015.515.5: Rashid Khan to Washington Sundar, OUT! CAUGHT! Another stunning catch from Hyderabad and this time it is Manish Pandey. Warner wanted energy from his fielders and boy have his troops not delivered that. Sundar departs Bangalore are tumbling. Maxwell is stranded at the other end and how will this affect him? He is losing his partners regularly here. Floated delivery on middle, Sundar looks to smack it over long on but this one turns away from him a bit as this is the googly. The Bangalore all-rounder is unable to pick it. He mistimes his no-look shot. It goes high in the air and seems to be falling away from long off. Manish Pandey though comes running in and flies in front to take a stunning catch.

014.514.5: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Washington Sundar, DROPPED! Great effort but a nod from Saha suggests he expected himself to take that. Fullish ball around off, Sundar shuffles inside his stumps and looks to paddle it. He does not time it and gets it too fine. Saha, behind the stumps, is wrong-footed. He though dives to his right, gets his right hand to it but cannot hold onto it. Saha makes a top-class goalkeeper save but is unable to take a stunning wicket keeper's catch.

013.413.4: Rashid Khan to AB de Villiers, OUT! CAUGHT! Once again Rashid gets the better of AB de Villiers. He might be known as Superman in world cricket but Rashid Khan is definitely his kryptonite in this game. The matchup has once again worked in Hyderabad's favour. Flat and slightly short outside off. It spins away from de Villiers. He looks to punch it through covers. The South African hits it uppishly and straight to David Warner at short cover. The Hyderabad skipper makes no mistake and takes a sharp catch.  In a space of two overs, Hyderabad have pulled things back with two massive wickets. AB de Villiers is disappointed but the Hyderabad players are all smile and so is the owner. Big blow for Bangalore.

It is the big man, the big fish, it is Super V. It is Virat Kohli who has gone back to the dugout. Holder hits the deck hard on the pads. Kohli looks to whip it flat-bat over the leg side. He plays this shot but this time gets a top edge. It goes high in the air and to the left and in front of deep square leg. Vijay Shankar moves to that side. He keeps his eyes on the ball as it swivels in the night sky. The Hyderabad all-rounder gets down and takes a very good catch. The reintroduction of Holder does the job for Warner. Kohli is furious as he was starting to look on song.

6 Overs | Runs : 47/2 | Run rate : 7.83
05.65.6: T Natarajan to Virat Kohli, Slower ball to end the Powerplay! It is on off, Kohli taps it to mid off and grunts loudly. End of the first phase. Bangalore are off to a good start here. They are 47/1!
45.55.5: T Natarajan to Virat Kohli, FOUR! Lovely wrist work from Kohli and Super V looks in the mood tonight. Poor ball from Natarajan. He bowls it on the pads of Kohli. The Bangalore skipper loves to flick. He uses his wrists and whips it through mid-wicket for a boundary.

He said he wanted his side to show energy on the field and David is leading from the front in that regard. Fullish ball around off, Shahbaz makes room and goes over extra cover. He does not time it well but the ball seems to be going away from the fielder. Warner charges behind it and manages to pull it before the ropes.

02.62.5: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Devdutt Padikkal, OUT! CAUGHT! Bhuvi strikes and Padikkal's return is a brief one. Bhuvneshwar gets his line and length right on this occasion. He bowls it on a length on middle and makes the ball come back into the southpaw. Padikkal looks to pull but he does not have enough room to free his arms. He hits it uppishly to the left of mid-wicket. Shahbaz Nadeem there takes a very good catch tumbling to the ground. He is a very good but underrated fielder and Hyderabad strike early.

Good call as there was nothing on it.

40.20.2: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Virat Kohli, FOUR! BOOM! Super V is off the mark and so his side in style. Bhuvneshwar is guilty of overpitching on off. A mistake Bhuvi should know one should never make against Kohli. The Bangalore skipper smashes it over the bowler's head for a boundary.
00.10.1: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Virat Kohli, Bhuvneshwar Kumar starts right on the money. It is a length ball on off. Kohli starts with a solid defense with a straight bat.
