10th over: WHAT A SHOT FROM MOEEN ALI! A nonchalant flick off Rahul Chahar sails over the boundary ropes for a SIX. Sublime timing that. But, Chahar has come back well two straight googly’s to beat Ali. He got a bottom edge off the third delivery and quinton de Kock failed to hold on to a really touch chance. Still 8 runs off it. RCB 70/2 (De Villiers 19*, Ali 10*)
9th over: Hardik Pandya on for his second over, and he nearly castles AB de Villiers, but a lucky escape for the South African, and what more that lemon cut earns his a boundary as well. Pandya has his hands on hips, he can’t do anything more than that. Seven runs off the over and it’s time-out. RCB 62/2 (DE Villiers 18*, Ali 2*)
8th over: ANOTHER BOWLING CHANGE: Rahul Chahar comes into the attack to bowl his leg spinners and he beats AB de Villiers with tun and bounce off the first delivery. But, de Villiers is up for the challenge and reverse sweeps Chahar for a full off a fullish delivery. Still six runs off it. RCB 55/2 (De Villiers 13*, Moeen Ali 1*)
7th over: BOWLING CHANGE and a WICKET! Hardik Pandya comes into the attack, and he delivers with the wicket of Parthiv Patel, soft dismissal right there. Misread the pace and ends up chipping it straight to Suryakumar Yadav at backward point. Parthiv perishes for 28. Moeen Ali is the new batsman in. Excellent over by Hardik Pandya, 4 runs and the wicket. RCB 49/2 (De Villiers 8)
6th over: Bumrah to continue, and ABD gets into the act, bludgeons this one over point for a BOUNDARY! 5 from the over. RCB 45/1 (Parthiv 26, De Villiers 6)
Four. AB breaks the shackles with a boundary over the inner-circle.
