  • APR 25, 2021 07:09 PM IST

    SIRAJ SURVIVES...FOR NOW

    OUT! Scratch that, NOT OUT. The handshakes will have to wait. Curran beats Siraj with a short ball, who attempts a wild slog. The ball in real-time looked like coming off the edge before going to Dhoni but the replay shows it wasn't the case. Good review from Siraj

    SIX AND OUT!

    SIX! WOW, Mitchell Santner! That was a fine grab gone in vain. Bravo bowls a slower ball into the pitch, it's a half-tracker. Jamieson tees off with a flat-batted swat through long-on. Substitute fielder Santner does very well to catch the ball coming to him at the speed of a bullet. But he falls over with the ball in hand.

    GONE! Direct hit! No, not Jadeja! But Imran Tahir. Jamieson looks for a quick single, but Chahal sends him back. Tahir does well to get to the ball quickly, get rid of it even quicker, and hit the bulls eye!


    RCB are 103/9 after 16 overs.

  • APR 25, 2021 05:59 PM IST

    DDP is letting loose!

    FOUR! Devdutt Padikkal. Makes room, takes the aerial route over mid-off. Once bounce into the fence.

  • APR 25, 2021 05:49 PM IST

    CSK vs RCB Live Score: CLASS!

    Sam Curran is brought into the attack.

    SIX! This man just oooozes class! Oh, wow! This youngster is a special, special talent. If that wasn't Yuvraj-Esque enough, nothing else will be. Sam, from over the wicket, strays down to the leg stump. Padikkal effortlessly flicks it over deep square leg for a maximum.

    SIX! Okay, this is just DDP showing his range. A six on the on side and now on off side. Picks up the length early, frees his arms and and thumps the ball over deep backward point for six. No need to run for that.

    RCB are 28/0 after 2 overs.

  • APR 25, 2021 05:42 PM IST

    FOUR! Almost the perfect start by Kohli. Deepak strays to his pads, Kohli beautifully flicks the ball wide of long leg for four.

    Right, folks! I hope you guys have refueled yourself. I certainly have. After those fireworks, it's time for the chase.

    It'd be unfair to rule out RCB. Remember, their openers got their side home unbeaten. Devdutt Padikkal is coming on the back of gorgeous century and Kohli has also hit the top gear by hitting a 70+ score against RR.

  • APR 25, 2021 05:32 PM IST

    Jadeja, take a bow!

    Superb innings from Jadeja, completely changed the complexion of the game. Spare a thought for Harshal Patel, who was going so well until then.

    Also, let's not forget that Christian had dropped Jadeja on ZERO!

  • APR 25, 2021 05:29 PM IST

    CSK vs RCB: CSK post 191/4

  • APR 25, 2021 05:24 PM IST

    FIFTY FOR JADEJA

    BALL 1- SIX! Off-cutter from Patel, doesn't quite nail it. Jadeja stays deep in his crease, opens his arms, and clears the long-on boundary with ease.

    BALL 2- SIX! Dejavu. Once again, Jadeja smacks the ball deep of long-on for six.

    BALL 3- NO-BALL AND SIX! Oh Jadeja, you beauty! Harshal under immense pressure sends a high full-toss Jadeja's way. Jadeja hoicks the ball to deep mid-wicket boundary for six. The ball was above the waist so no-ball.

    FREE-HIT! SIX! A slower ball into the pitch, Jadeja sits deep in his crease and pulls the ball over deep mid-wicket for six. He GETS TO HIS FIFTY!

    BALL 4- DROPPED! Chahal drops Jadeja. Batsmen run two

    BALL 5- SIX! 33 off the over and he's still on strike. A low full-toss from Harshal. Jadeja thumps the ball into the stands. Kohli can only look on in despair.

    CSK vs RCB: Pitch Report

    "This looks a little bit different from the wickets that we have seen at Wankhede. This looks a little more abrasive, less moisture and there might be some grip at the start of the innings. Batting might be challenging to start with. Because it is humid there might be some swing on offer but it won't happen for too long. This pitch might not be as helpful as it has been for the pacers," as presented on Star Sports

    IPL 2021 Live Score: Virat Kohli, RCB captain, at the toss:

    We would have bowled first as well. It's a good pitch. We played here the last game as well. Stayed even throughout. We thought that whatever the bowlers can extract could happen in the first innings. So we have stacked up our bowling options. Richardson makes way for Christian, Saini comes in for Shahbaz. The reason why we have won games is because we have executed well. You can't keep thinking about what other teams are doing. We have planned well and executed so far.

    CSK vs RCB: MS Dhoni, Chennai Super Kings, at the toss

    We will bat first. Heat is a factor and the wicket may slow down. It's not about keeping anyone happy, we have tinkered with our batting order a bit. Yes, you'll always complain if you have got enough batting or not. Most we can do is give everyone exposure but nobody is guaranteed of it. It's a day game, so it's not something we're used to as we mostly play evening games. Spinners may come more into play. You have to be critical of your length. Two changes - Moeen not fit, Ngidi out - Bravo and Tahir come in.
