Shortish around off, Pandey makes room to pull but mistimes it towardswide long on where Baby takes an easy catch. They check for the no ballbut Watson seems to be marginally fine.

Slower ball just around off, Gambhir misread itcompletely as he looks to heave across the line. Misses it to be rappedon the front pad. Appeal for lbw and it is given.

KKR 52/2 in 7 overs 22.16 IST: OUT! Chahal castles Lynn for 15! What a ball! Floats it up on middle and leg, sharp leg break and Lynnhas no clue to that one. The ball pitches and fizzes away to go past him to disturb the stumps. Another crucial wicket for Bangalore this as the big Australian departs. That is a delivery that would have made any leg spinner proud. KKR 34/2 in 4.4 overs 22.11 IST: Four overs are gone and KKR are 32/1. Well, RCB dropped an opportunity to get rid of Lynn as his catch was put down due to a miscommunication from the fielders. 22.02 IST: SIX!! Chris Lynn smashes the first six off KKR’s innings.

Russell gets rid of Sachin Baby for 16! Soft dismissal! Low full toss on leg stump, Baby walks across the stumps to play the scoop but goes off the cue end. The ball pops up back atRussell who takes the easiest of return catches. Fires the ball at thestriker’s stumps in anger and seems to have broken the bails in theprocess. RCB 167/5 in 19 overs 21.24 IST: Expensive over from Umesh Yadav – 23 off it! Sachin Baby making the most out of it with 2 Fours and 1 Six! RCB 154/4 in 18 overs21.14 IST: OUT! Morkel gets rid of Kohli for 52! Big blow for the home team! Good length outside off, Kohli steps out to launch it over cover butmistimes another big shot.

Fires in the slider just around off, skids through off the deck as ABlooks to play across the line. The ball kept a bit low perhaps as itcrashes into the pads. The South African was looking at sea against spin tonight and falls eventually to a spinner. Huge blow that forBangalore. RCB 109/3 in 13.4 overs20.56 IST: RCB have got a great start! Now AB de Villiers and Kohli will look to accelerate the run-rate. RCB 106/2 in 13 overs 20.53 IST: OUT! Rahul departs!

IN THE AIR….AND GONE! Short ball around off, effort ball from Morkel and Gayle cannot resist the pull stroke. The bounce gets big on him and the top edge goes high up in the air on the leg side.

Preview:Toiling Royal Challengers Bangalore will be eagerly aiming for a win when they face Kolkata Knight Riders in a Indian Premier League (IPL) here on Monday. (Full IPL Coverage)RCB have only won two of their four matches to be at the seventh spot in the eight-team tournament’s points table.They have an imbalanced squad, heavily reliant on their batting. They will once again bank on skipper Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, K.L. Rahul and Shane Watson to put up a huge total and hope their weaker bowling line-up will be able to defend it.West Indian big-hitter Chris Gayle has rejoined the squad after a paternity leave to add more muscle to the already formidable batting line-up.RCB suffered a 15-run loss to Sunrisers Hyderabad on Saturday and need to overhaul their performance soon to harbour any hopes of qualification for the last-four stage.They also need to sort out their bowling woes quickly as the inexperience in this department has been exposed badly by their opponents.KKR have fared far better so far, winning four of their seven matches to be third on the points table. They would move to the second spot with a win on Monday.But KKR also are coming into the contest on the back of a 27-run defeat by Delhi Daredevils in an away match, also on Saturday.Nothwithstanding the defeat, KKR approach the match with a better frame of mind as they have been one of the most balanced team of the tournament.KKR skipper Gautam Gambhir is leading from the front and is one of the top run-getters in the tournament so far, well supported by opening partner Robin Uthappa.The bowling line-up also has a settled look with West Indian off-spinner Sunil Narine spearheading the attack.Teams:Royal Challengers Bangalore: Virat Kohli (C), Varun Aaron, Abu Nechi, S Arvind, Samuel Badree, Stuart Binny, Yuzuvendra Chahal, AB De Villiers, Praveen Dubey, Chris Gayle, Travis head, Iqbal Abdulla, Kedar Jadhav, Akshay Karnewar, Sarfraz Khan, Vikramjeet Malik, Mandeep Singh, Adam Milne, Harshal Patel, Lokesh Rahul, Parveez Rasool, Kane Richardson, Sachin Baby, Mitchell Starc, Vikas Tokas, Shane Watson, David Wiese and Tabraiz Shamsi.Kolkata Knight Riders: Gautam Gambhir (captain), Piyush Chawla, Brad Hogg, Jason Holder, Sheldon Jackson, Kuldeep Yadav, Chris Lynn, Manan Sharma,Morne Morkel, Colin Munro, Sunil Narine, Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, Ankit Rajpoot, Andre Russell, Rajagopal Sathish, Shakib Al Hasan, Jaydev Unadkat, Robin Uthappa, Suryakumar Yadav, Umesh Yadav.
