End of Over : 20.0 RCB: 198/6

The Man of the Match award has been given to Sanju Samson for his blazing knock. Action though is not over for today. You can now switch tabs and go to the other game between Punjab and Chennai where the latter have elected to field first. Cheers!

19.6 0

No, he can't! A dot to finish! Full and outside off, Singh swings but misses. RAJASTHAN WIN BY 19 RUNS!

19.5 2

Full and wide outside off, driven through covers for a couple. Mandeep is now on 47, he has one ball to go, can he get to his fifty?

19.4 4

FOUR! Three in a row! This is just spoiling Laughlin's figures. Full and on middle, Singh bludgeons it past the bowler for a boundary.

19.3 4

FOUR! Back-to-back boundaries but it still won't be enough. Full and outside off, Singh tries to guide it down towards third man but it goes off the bottom and it goes very fine in that region for a boundary.

19.2 4

FOUR! Slower ball on the body of the batsman. Singh walks across and pulls it over short fine leg for a boundary.

19.1 2

That is it! They needed six maximums but only get a brace from the first one as Mandeep hits it hard down towards long off.

End of Over : 19 12 Runs RCB: 182/6
18.6 0

A full toss outside off, Woakes misses out. 36 from 6 now. Is there a Yuvraj Singh in their ranks?

18.5 W

OUT! Stokes has the last laugh! But a good innings by Sundar comes to an end. He did fight but the task was always going to be an uphill one. A full toss outside off, Sundar goes for the paddle but only manages to hit it onto his stumps. Chris Woakes is the next man in.

18.4 2

Fuller on off, Sundar drives it down towards long off for a run.

18.3 0

Over the wicket now and angles it away from the batsman. Sundar makes room but makes a little too much and fails to put bat on ball.

18.2 6

SIX! 10 from two! What a shot from Sundar! Full and wide outside off, Sundar lofts it over covers and the ball goes all the way. 38 needed now in 10.

18.1 4

FOUR! Perfect start to the over! Full and wide outside off, Sundar opens the face of the bat and slashes it past cover-point for a boundary.

Summary

High on confidence after registering a win against Kings XI Punjab, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will look for their second win in three Indian Premier League (IPL) ties when they take on Rajasthan Royals (RR). South African star batsman AB de Villiers cracked a brilliant 50 to guide RCB to their first victory of the season against Kings XI Punjab on Friday here at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.

 

Pacer Umesh Yadav took three wickets in one over to also star for the franchise which had finished last in the league table in the previous season. RR celebrated their return to the fortress Sawai Mansingh Stadium with a 10-run win over Delhi Daredevils in the rain-truncated match.

 

RR would feel they fell on the favourable side of the Duckworth-Lewis Method and have areas to improve on, especially their batting. For RCB, De Villiers and Quinton de Kock, who scored 45 runs to lay the foundation against Punjab, will aim to continue the good work.

 

Captain Virat Kohli has got starts but would want to make a mark by getting a big score on Sunday. New Zealand star stumper-batsman Brendon McCullum would also like to get into the thick of things, especially after getting a golden duck.

 

There are chances that England\'s Moeen Ali could be pencilled in for the ineffective Sarfaraz Khan. Another alteration could be the inclusion of New Zealand all-rounder Corey Anderson.

 

Coming to the visitors, besides RR captain Ajinkya Rahane and Sanju Samson, who scored 45 off 40 balls and 37 off 22 balls, respectively, would like to continue in similar vein, but beyond them the batting has flopped.

 

The likes of big-hitting English wicketkeeper Jos Buttler and Rahul Tripathi and Big Bash famed D\'Arcy Short will have to deliver the goods. RRs bowling attack comprising pacers Ben Laughlin and Dhawal Kulkarni had done well to keep DD batsmen in check with their variations.

 

Ben Stokes, the most-expensive signing at the IPL Player Auction 2018, hasn\'t been in the best of batting form recently, but RR will hope he can start hitting a few balls out of the park soon. He has just managed 21 runs in two games.

 

Teams (from): Royal Challengers Bangalore: Brendon McCullum, Quinton de Kock, Virat Kohli (capt), AB de Villiers, Sarfraz Khan, Mandeep Singh, Chris Woakes, Washington Sundar, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kulwant Khejroliya.

 

Rajasthan Royals: Heinrich Klassen, Benjamin Stokes, Jaydev Unadkat, Sanju Samson, Jofra Archer, Krishnappa Gowtham, Jos Buttler, Ajinkya Rahane, Darcy Short, Rahul Tripathi, Dhawal Kulkarni, Zahir Khan Pakteen, Ben Laughlin, Stuart Binny, Dushmantha Chameera, Anureet Singh, Aryaman Vikram Birla, Midhun S, Shreyas Gopal, Prashant Chopra, Jatin Saxena, Ankit Sharma, Mahipal Lomror.
