Fortunes turning for RCB? They'll certainly hope so

Russell, my word!

Phew. I'm struggling to find the words to explain Russell absolutely storming innings. He's faced only 13 deliveries, but it was 13 nightmares for RCB. 7 sixes rained of his bat, and he smashed 48 off just 13 balls to give KKR a stunning victory. KKR win by five wickets, but Russell was definitely the big difference.

53 off 18!

All on Russell now! DK falls to Navdeep Saini.

66 from 24!

Who's your money on? Mine's with the manicure guy, 'cos I'm chewing my nails off

Uthappa falls

Negi gives RCB a breakthrough. Uthappa is caught in the deep after Negi tightened the screws earlier in the over. Can RCB take wickets quickly and take control?

Oh my! They could and should have, but Siraj puts down a simple chance to let off Lynn. Kohli is furious! RCB are furious! But Negi brings them back. Gets Lynn out bowled with a beauty. RCB will breathe a little easier now.

Lynn, Uthappa put KKR back on track

KKR are nicely back on track here. The pair have not only brought in enough boundaries, but also ensured they kept the singles ticking to ensure the pressure doesn't build.

Early success for RCB

They went for plenty in the first two overs, but RCB get the big, early wicket. Narine gets sucked into the hook, and hits it towards Nego at fine leg, who takes a fine overhead catch.

205!

That's a strong total for RCB, but they will know that it's far from safe. Stoinis goes big towards the end as they end up with 205. Kohli and ABD notched up fifties, and Stoinis provides the finishing touch to help the homeside to a good total.

Kuldeep gets Kohli

Some relief for KKR finally. And it's superb bowling from Kuldeep. He flights one up to Kohli and asks the RCB captain to go for the drive. Kohli obliges, but hits it straight to the bowler. Caught and bowled after a stunning innings.

Kohli, AB go big

RCB are starting for find the momentum for their big finish. The boundaries are raining now. RCB will hope the pair keeps going like this.

Fifty for Kohli

The RCB skipper has come out with the intention of timing the pants out of everything bowled his way. He gave RCB the frenzied start, was extra watchful against googlies, took on part-timer Nitish Rana and has now reached a 35-ball 50. He now has the task of ensuring KKR's spin battery don't disrupt the start he's given his side.

Parthiv Out

First wicket for KKR, and it's a much-needed one too. Dinesh Karthik throws in a surprise by bringing Nitish Rana into the attack, and the part-timer almost has Kohli out first ball. After the drop, Rana comes back strong to get Parthiv out LBW.

Fast start for RCB

Kohli looks in the mood already. Two sumptuous drives in the very first over, and Kohli is off to a confident start. It's made worse by Shubman Gill dropping Kohli off Nitish Rana's first over.

Toss

So Brendon McCullum expects runs aplenty on this Bengaluru wicket! Should be fun then, strap yourselves in.

So hey, who'd want to be RCB right now? Four games, four losses and a terrible net run rate to boot. Theye're taking on Kolkata Knight Riders, who with a win can join the others in the top four with six points, with nothing but a win on their minds.

Another loss here could mean RCB elave themselves with everything to do in their last nine games. Kohli likes challenges, we all know that, but even for him getting the team to win eight out of nine could prove to be too much.

So there'd be a ton of pressure on the home team. Don't believe them if they say there won't be. Join us as we bring you all the details, live.
