Done with both the matches! It turned out to be a fantastic day for the low-keyed teams in the points table with Rajasthan and Bangalore punching above their weight. Do join us now on Sunday where we have two matches lined up for you once again. Kolkata will be hosting Chennai at 1600 local (1030 GMT) followed by the clash between Hyderabad and Delhi at 2000 local (1430 GMT). Until we meet again, it's goodbye from us. Cheers!
Man of the Match, AB de Villiers is very happy to get the first win of the season. Adds that it's still a small step in the right direction. States that he has got too much respect of the game to get upset about it, or to get ahead of himself. Mentions that he was just one knock away from finding his best form and hopes to maintain that now. Terms it a fantastic move to get in Dale Steyn and is delighted to have a bowler of his caliber in the team.
Victorious Bangalore skipper, Virat Kohli says the most pleasing thing is interviewing after winning a game. Mentions they have been unlucky in a few games but he is pleased to win this one. States the bowlers were really good tonight and it was a great effort to restrict them to 170. Talks about their bowling in the middle phase where they picked up four wicket in 8 overs for 60 odd runs which he feels was an outstanding effort.
Marcus Stoinis also gives a quick interview. Says that he was fortunate it was his night tonight. Tells that he enjoyed batting with the best player of their generation (AB de Villiers). Mentions he is very happy to get the two points and credits the way the Bangalore bowlers bounced back after the Powerplay.
Punjab skipper, Ravichandran Ashwin (on giving Sarfaraz Khan the final over) says that with just 6 runs to play with and the ball sliding on nicely, he wanted a leggie to bowl. Admits they tried to take the two big wickets but the pair of Kohli and de Villiers played smartly. States they were not up to the mark in the field as they dropped a few catches. Reckons the wicket was dry in the first half and it got better to bat on. Further adds that he backed his best bowlers to do the job at the death but they failed this time. Ends by thanking the crowd and hopes that they keep turning up and supporting them.
Bangalore started their chase in a brisk manner through the 43-run stand between Virat Kohli and Parthiv Patel. After that, their most loved batting pair, Kohli-de Villiers, combined to raise an 85-run partnership that put them on the front foot. After the second strategic break, Punjab tried to make a comeback and bowled a few quiet overs which resulted in the wicket of the Bangalore skipper. Thereafter, the required run rate started to jump but then the 18-run 18th over came followed by 14 runs in the 19th and that put the chase to bed. AB de Villiers batted through and along with Marcus Stoinis finished the job.
Earlier in the game, Punjab put on a powerful show with the bat in the Powerplay and courtesy Chris Gayle's excellent knock, they posted a very challenging total on the board. Although, the kind of start they had, they should have got at least 20-25 runs more. Credit should be given to the Bangalore bowlers, especially their spin pair, for putting the brakes on the scoring rate and playing a big role in this win.
Winning really does taste sweet! Bangalore tried, tried and tried but without any success in the last six games. Then, they got a 5-day break, rejuvenated and have come out trumps in this match! They will be really delighted at the moment after getting the monkey off their back. Bangalore will like to believe that this is the start of their resurgence and from hereon, they will go on a roll. Remember, it has reached to do-or-die situation for them and probably that's the kick they needed to get their campaign going.

STOP THE PRESS! BANGALORE HAVE WON! Another short delivery outside off, Stoinis slaps it down to wide long off and steals two runs. Smiles return in the Bangalore camp, they finally taste their first victory of 2019. A comprehensive win here by 8 wickets and they are off the mark on the points table.

FOUR! Two more needed. Sarfaraz bowls it flat and short on middle, Stoinis hops back to make room and bludgeons it over the bowler's head for a boundary. Kohli is pumped up in the dugout.

SIX! Mr 360 goes full throttle and brings down the equation to 6 off 6! A low full toss yet again by Shami, de Villiers jumps across the thumps and spanks it over fine leg for a biggie. 14 from the over, 32 in the last two. The last two overs have put Bangalore on the cusp of their first win of the season.

The batsman has played the square drive. Two runs added to the total. 18 from the over and this has changed the complexion of this chase. 20 needed off 12 balls.

NOT OUT! AB de Villiers is well in. Tye gets away with a really bad delivery. Plenty of width on this one, AB smashes it through the line but finds Ravichandran Ashwin on the edge of the box at extra cover. They scamper across for a quick single as the Punjab skipper has a shy at the bowler's end. It appears to be a direct hit in one go as the umpire refers it upstairs. The replays come and they show that the ball missed the stumps, hit Tye's hands and then gets deflected onto the stumps. Also, 50 up for Mr. 360. He though has to take his team over the line.
Have Punjab got de Villiers? A run out appeal at the non-striker's end has been taken upstairs. De Villiers looks relaxed though.
17.4

SIX! Bowl there to this batsman and he will hit you every single time, even in his sleep. Short and wide outside off, begging to be hit, de Villiers latches onto it and plunders it over covers for a maximum. 23 needed more off 14 balls.
17.3
1
DROPPED BY MURUGAN! A wicket at this stage would have surely made Bangalore nervous. Tye serves a back of a length delivery outside off, Stoinis tries pulling it but gets a big top edge. It goes way up high in the air, Murugan is underneath it and he drops. A single is taken, bringing de Villiers on strike.
17.2

FOUR! One more in the over. 8 off the first two balls, all the pressure built in the last four overs getting released. Short and wide outside off, Marcus rocks back and whacks it through backward point. Tye is looking dejected. 30 needed off 16 balls.
17.1

FOUR! Tye has been poor all evening. Starts with a full ball on the pads, easy pickings for any batsman, Stoinis picks it up and flicks it behind square leg for a boundary. Is this the over that Bangalore will target?

DROPPED! Or is it? However, it is a misfield and a couple is taken. This is short and flatter outside off, the batsman hits it hard towards covers. Not sure if it carried but the fielder lets it through his hands and two taken.

OUT! A wicket out of nowhere! Kohli is dismissed and he is looking shell-shocked. A short delivery again by Shami, this time Virat takes on the challenge to play the pull shot but ends up playing it flat and straight towards Murugan Ashwin at deep mid-wicket who jumps and takes it brilliantly over his head. The fielder is standing quite inside the rope there, not sure whether it's a plan or not but it has certainly worked. 46 needed off 27 balls. This match is not over yet.
15.2
1
Quick single. Short in length and on off, de Villiers tries to pull but gets an inside edge onto the pads. It rolls near the surface and Kohli calls his partner for a sharp single. Shami also rushes forward and deflects it onto the stumps with his boot but Kohli is safely in by then.

The length is on the shorter side outside off, it's bowled through the flatter trajectory, Kohli cuts it through cover-point for a run. Ashwin knows that Kohli very rarely plays sweep, so he has square leg up and point in the deep. Smart captaincy.

Bouncer, the batsman leaves it thinking it to be a wide for height. Kohli is furious as the square leg umpire stands still and doesn't signal anything. The replays show that it was wayy over. Hmm...

A slower delivery but there is plenty of width on offer, it's slapped down to long off for one.

A length delivery drifting down the leg side, de Villiers works it in front of square leg and takes on Shami in the deep. An easy couple in the end.
The strategic break has been signaled! The story is the same as it was in the last break - Bangalore in control, if Punjab do not get wickets quickly, this game is going to slip away. Will there be a change in the story or will the visitors chase this down easily?

A direct hit and de Villiers was a goner! These half chances have to be taken at the moment. Length ball and on middle, Kohli works it with soft hands towards mid-wicket. The batters take one and go for the second. The fielder runs in and fires it to the bowler who fails to collect it. Replays later on show, had Tye collected it, de Villiers would have been short.
11.3

FOUR! Poor line from Tye and he gets punished. He bowls it on a length on the pads, Kohli has to just put bat on ball and he does better, as he flicks it over backward square leg for a boundary.

FOUR! Poor fielding. That's a gift from Rahul to Bangalore. Ashwin bowls it fuller outside off, de Villiers drives it through the covers. Rahul from long off runs to his left and then makes a mess of it as the ball goes through him and into the fence.
The strategic break has been signaled! Bangalore are cruising at the moment. They have their best batters out there who are going along nicely. They would hope the two to continue. Punjab on the other hand, need to break this stand as quickly as possible and get into the fragile middle order of the visitors. It was from a similar position from where Bangalore started slowing things down and Punjab will hope they can do the same.

Lucky! De Villiers could have easily dragged it onto his stumps. Tye bowls it fuller and on the pads, AB goes for the flick but the ball takes the inside edge onto his pads. The ball then falls to the ground near de Villiers' shoes as he goes searching for it. Luckily for him, the ball did not roll on to the stumps.

FOUR! Poor ball and put away! Short and wide outside off, Kohli goes back and cuts it through point. The timing is such that there is no chance for the fielder to chase it down.

FOUR! Cheeky! If the previous boundary was power, this one was deft and cheeky. Shami bowls it on a length on the fifth stump line, de Villiers opens the bat face and guides it to the third man fence. Shami is leaking a lot of runs here. 50 up for Bangalore, this is the quickest they have reached that mark in this season.

OUT! In the air... taken! The skipper takes it on himself and delivers the goods. Excellent bowling, this. He slows it up and gives it a lot more air. Parthiv comes down the track and looks to go big but he does not get to the pitch of the ball. Still goes ahead with the shot. Only manages more height than distance. Agarwal at long off takes it. A much-needed wicket for the hosts. They would now want to build on this.

We are back for the chase! The Punjab team is in a huddle and now make its way out to the middle. They are followed by the Bangalore openers, Virat Kohli and Parthiv Patel. The left-hander will be on strike and he will face Sam Curran who has the new ball in hand. Here we go...
01st InningsKings XI Punjab
Right then, the target for Bangalore is 174. They have been unsuccessful in the run chases twice this season, while going after targets of 188 and 232. This time it's looking gettable on a belter of a surface but it did show signs of slowing down in the latter stage. What will be the script tonight? Will Bangalore taste their first success? Or will it be Punjab achieving their fourth win in a row at home? Do join us in a short while to find out.
Yuzvendra Chahal (when asked about bowling to Gayle) says that it sometimes gets hard to bowl to Gayle as he hits it everywhere. Further adds that Bangalore did not want to take the chance to bowl the leggie in the Powerplay as Gayle was still at the crease and his balls would have been easier to him. Adds up that he got Rahul in his very first over so he was happy about it. Reckons that Punjab played good shots. Ends up saying that the grass on the pitch also helped him to get the grip. Mentions that he would feel happier if his team chases it down easily.
Punjab were going great guns at one stage but after losing KL Rahul, they slowed down just a bit. Bangalore managed to pick a few wickets at regular intervals and tried to choke the flow of runs through their spinners but the presence of Chris Gayle meant that they failed to gain the upper hand at any time. His partnership with Mandeep Singh was also very crucial for the home team as that brought stability to their innings. As mentioned, Bangalore's spinners did a commendable job in their combined eight overs and Navdeep Saini also left his mark by bowling four economical overs. Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Siraj were the ones who travelled to all parts of the stadium and had a dismal outing. Here is Yuzvendra Chahal giving an interview...
Outstanding knock by Christopher Henry Gayle and Punjab have posted a very challenging total on the board. Bangalore, though, will feel that they have pulled things back a shade towards the end. Just a reminder, Gayle was trapped lbw on nought but was not given and Virat Kohli didn't review the decision. It has cost them 99 runs and that also provided Punjab a big start in the Powerplay.

FOUR! He does not, he ends up on 99. However, a boundary to end the innings! Full and wide again outside off, Gayle throws his bat at it. He gets it through backward point and a boundary results. 11 from the last over and PUNJAB FINISH ON 173/4!

Brilliant bowling! A yorker outside off, Gayle looks to put bat on ball but misses. Now Gayle needs a biggie to get to his ton. Will he do so?

FOUR! Carved over point! The second half of the over has started well for the hosts. A full toss outside off, Gayle carves it over the point fielder and a boundary results. On 95, 2 balls to go.

Another single so the first half of the last over belongs to Bangalore. Short and on the body, Mandeep pulls it to deep mid-wicket for a single.

A single again! Slower ball, Gayle swings, it flies off the inner half towards deep mid-wicket for a run.
19.1

On the shorter side, Mandeep pulls it all along the ground to deep mid-wicket for a single. Gayle is on strike, he is on 90 and he needs 10 in the 5 balls remaining to get to a ton. That single though brings the 50-run stand up. An important one as they had lost a couple of wickets quickly when the two joined forces.

DROPPED! The Bangalore skipper drops Gayle with 8 balls to go. How costly will this prove? It was coming to him quickly but should have been taken. A low full toss, Gayle smashes it flat towards long on. Kohli runs in and gets two hands to it but fails to grab it. The batsmen take a run.

SIX! Scratch what I wrote last, he has timed that to perfection. That is colossal. HUGE! Short and on middle, Gayle goes back and pulls it right off the middle, it goes deep into the mid-wicket stands where a spectator takes it with one hand. He is definitely going to get rich tonight. Punjab would hope this should probably get them going now.

OUT! Two wickets in quick succession for the visitors and they are right back in the game. The promotion up the order has not worked. Sam goes for the reverse sweep but misses.

This is worked through mid-wicket for a single.
Strategic break. Punjab are going at a good rate but at the same time also losing wickets at regular intervals. Looking at this pitch and the kind of start the home team got, if they fail to get a score around 180-190, they will be deeply disappointed. Chris Gayle is still unbeaten and all others need to do is hand the strike to the big man. For Bangalore, picking wickets is the best way to contain runs. A mouthwatering seven overs coming up. Sam Curran has come out to partner the Jamaican monster.
13 Over

OUT! Well, well, well, for the third time tonight, a batsman hits a biggie and then is dismissed on the very next ball. That seems to be the trend in this game so far. Credit to the bowler also, he bowls a good short ball on the body of the batsman. It zips through. Sarfaraz looks to pull but the ball brushes his gloves and goes into the mitts of the keeper. Patel takes it, appeals and Khan, in fact, is seen walking even before the finger goes up. So another timely wicket for Bangalore and this should surely make Siraj feel good.
12.5

SIX! Outrageous! A paddle scoop that goes all the way. This was on the cards though as it is one of his favourite shots. He goes down on one knee and then scoops a length ball in the line of the stumps. It is right from the middle of the bat and goes all the way at fine leg.

Sarfaraz Khan is the number 4 batsman. It's looking more like Bangalore are facing an army of their own ex-players.

OUT! BOWLED 'EM! What a delivery this is! You hit Chahal for a maximum and he would get you on the very next ball. That is exactly what he has done on two occasions here. This though is a ripper. Flatter and it pitches on middle, Agarwal expecting it to come in with the angle tries to flick but that proves to be his undoing. The ball turns a little, Mayank then tries to adjust and defend but it is too late. It beats the bat and hits the stumps. Chahal is pumped up and Bangalore need to continue picking wickets at regular intervals.
8.4

SIX! That is probably the shot of the match! Wow! This is tossed up outside off, Agarwal goes down on one knee, reaches out for it and lofts it over the covers fence. A very difficult shot that but he has made it look very easy.

OUT! STUMPED! Chahal does what he was brought on for. He has broken the opening stand. He gets his revenge. The shot though can be questioned. Having got a maximum on the last ball, was this needed? Well, such is the format, the batsman feels he needs to keep going and Rahul perishes in the attempt to do so. He dances down the track but does not get to the pitch of the ball. He still swings but misses due to the away turn. Patel behind makes no mistake. Rahul has been dismissed for the first time by a spinner in this edition. Bangalore will try and pull things back now.
6.1

SIX! Rahul gets into the act now! What a shot that is! It is slightly full and on middle, Rahul just lofts it over the long on fence for a biggie. Ideal start after the break too.
Strategic break has been signaled! Also, Chahal is into the attack. Virat Kohli turns to his best bowler. Can he get him a wicket?

FOUR! Make that 24 from the over! Siraj has been taken to the cleaners. The Powerplay which started off slowly, has ended with the bang. Punjab are 60 for no loss after it. Siraj strays down the leg side, that is criminal with fine leg in the ring. Gayle flicks it through that region and bags a boundary.
5.5

SIX! Brute! That has been dismissed! A nothing delivery to be honest. Short and it bounces at the height of the batsman's chest. Gayle says thank you very much as he pulls it into the mid-wicket stands. 20 from the over with a ball to go.

DROPPED! Still, a brilliant effort by AB de Villiers. Back of a length ball on off, probably once again stopping onto the batsman, Rahul checks his back foot punch at the last moment and ends up hitting it aerially towards extra cover. De Villiers flies to his right but fails to hang onto the catch. It deflects behind and Siraj, running across from mid off, reacts well to stop and dive to his right to stop the ball. End of an eventful over.

Was that just short or has that been dropped? Rahul would have surely had his heart in his mouth. Rahul takes a few steps ahead and looks to hit it over mid off. It goes right off the bottom towards Ali there. He runs across to his right and then looks to take it with a slide but it lands just short. He does not stop it cleanly also and a run is taken.

A huge shout but not given! The in-dipper on middle, Gayle looks to work it on the leg side but misses. The ball hits the pads, an appeal follows but the umpire shakes his head. The ball seems to be going down leg. Now then, that is not going down leg, it is actually crashing into the leg pole. Why did not Bangalore review? Gayle's wicket, it is surely worth taking a chance, right?

Right off the middle from Rahul to begin with. Just a single though. Full, looking for some swing. There ain't any. Rahul strokes it back towards the bowler who gets a hand to it and saves three for his side. First run.
We are all set for the action to begin! The Bangalore players make their way out to the middle. The dynamic opening pair of KL Rahul and Chris Gayle follow them. The new ball has been given to Umesh Yadav. Here we go...
Punjab (Playing XI) - KL Rahul, Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal (In for Karun Nair), Sarfaraz Khan, Nicholas Pooran(WK) (In for David Miller), Mandeep Singh, Sam Curran, Ravichandran Ashwin(C), Andrew Tye (In for Hardus Viljoen), Mohammed Shami, Murugan Ashwin (In for Ankit Rajpoot).
Bangalore (Playing XI) - Parthiv Patel(WK), Virat Kohli(C), AB de Villiers, Marcus Stoinis, Moeen Ali, Akshdeep Nath, Pawan Negi, Umesh Yadav (In for Tim Southee), Yuzvendra Chahal, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Siraj.
Punjab skipper, Ravichandran Ashwin says that they have to try and string wins together. Admits that they have been a bit patchy but also says that they have played some good cricket in between also. Wants to keep ticking all the boxes. Informs that they have four changes - Andrew Tye, Murugan Ashwin, Mayank Agarwal and Nicholas Pooran come in for Hardus Viljoen (down with flu), Ankit Rajpoot, Karun Nair and David Miller.
Bangalore skipper, Virat Kohli says that there is a lot of dew later on and they like chasing as a team. States that he is backing his batting to do the job. Adds that they have no option but to come out and fight every day. Wants his players to play fearless cricket and enjoy every moment. Informs that they are playing with three overseas players as Umesh Yadav replaces Tim Southee. Also mentions that they expect others to step up and do the job and personally he wants to give his 120 percent every time he plays.
Toss - Bangalore win the toss and elect to field!
Welcome back, folks. Time for game number 28 of the 2019 Indian T20 League and Bangalore are in Mohali to face Punjab. The visiting team has been going through a miserable phase after losing all their matches this season and another defeat can very well end all their hopes of qualifying to the next round. They are down in the dumps currently and need an inspirational performance to lift themselves up. A 5-day break would have freshen them up and let's see how they fare against Punjab this evening. The hosts have built a reputation of being invincible at this ground and given their form, they can be considered as favourites. Let's hope for an entertaining battle.

World Cup Final, Overthrow Runs: विश्वकप 2019 के फाइनल मैच में इंग्लैंड को ओवरथ्रो के जरिए 6 रन दिए गए थे, जबकि तमाम एक्सपर्ट का मानना था कि वहां 5 रन ही जोड़े जाने चाहिए थे।

ICC Cricket World Cup का 12वां एडिशन 30 मई से इंग्लैंड और वेल्स में शुरू होने जा रहा है। इस टूर्नामेंट में कुल 48 मैच खेले जाएंगे। ये सभी मुकाबले 11 अलग-अलग जगहों पर आयोजित होंगे। वेस्टइंडीज और पाकिस्तान के बीच दूसरा मुकाबला ट्रेंट ब्रिज नॉटिंघम में खेला जाएगा। साउथैम्पटन में भारत 5 जून को अपना पहला मैच दक्षिण अफ्रीका के खिलाफ खेलेगी। वहीं द ओवल में 9 जून को ऑस्ट्रेलिया से भारत का सामना होगा। न्यूजीलैंड और भारत के बीच 13 जून को नॉटिंघम में बेहद रोमामंचक मुकाबला खेला जाएगा। जबकि पूरे वर्ल्ड कप का सबसे हाई वोल्टेज भारत-पाकिस्तान मैच ओल्ड ट्रैफर्ड में खेला जाएगा। पिछली बार सेमीफाइनल में हारकर बाहर होने वाली भारतीय टीम की कोशिश इस सीजन खिताब अपने नाम करने की होगी।
