Commentary (Kings XI Punjab innings)

Azhar Mahmood is named the Man of the Match for his excellent bowling. That's it from all of us. Join us tomorrow for a crucial match between Mumbai and Pune at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium. Till then, farewell!

Five runs were required off the last over. It came down to the penultimate ball when Piyush Chawla managed to pull off a stunning maximum when just two runs were required off the last two balls. Mohali move to the FOURTH spot, while Bangalore slip down to the SIXTH place.

The start was boosted well by Mandeep Singh. Nitin Saini got to his maiden half-century. David Hussey went on on his own accord, going at a blistering rate. Then came the turn-around in the 18th over, the first run out of Mahmood, followed by suicidal run-outs of David Hussey and Abhishek Nayar and within the space of two overs, Bangalore suddenly had the momentum with them.

One of those matches, where pressure gets on due to some good fielding in the end and force the opposition to almost give it away. Mohali had three run-outs in the death but have managed to scrap through, thanks to a biggie from Chawla off the second last ball.

19.5 V Kumar to P Chawla, SIX! MOHALI WIN BY FOUR WICKETS! Chawla finishes it off in style. A length delivery at 120.2 kph, he got under it and just clobbered it over wide long on. Celebrations all over and the owner of Mohali cannot be seen more happier. 163/6

19.4 V Kumar to P Dogra, Short in length down the leg side, pulled away for a single at deep mid-wicket. Two RUNS OFF Two BALLS! 157/6

19.3 V Kumar to P Dogra, Over-pitched, hit well through covers for two. No one in the deep and they take a couple. THREE RUNS OFF THREE BALLS! 156/6

19.2 V Kumar to P Dogra, Fuller in length, he hits it straight back to Kumar, who actually DROPS it. But anyways, he avoided the boundary and most importantly, saved the runs. Was this the turning point? Had Dogra hit on either sides, it would have been a boundary since mid on and mid off were in the circle. 154/6

19.1 V Kumar to P Dogra, Short in length, Dogra gets a bottom edge as Kohli comes charging in from first slip. FIVE RUNS OFF FIVE BALLS! 154/6

It has been almost a dramatic turn-around here. Three run-outs in the last two overs. Mohali need 5 runs off 6 balls. Vinay Kumar, the person to bowl the last over, has a detailed discussion with Vettori.

18.6 Z Khan to P Chawla, OH, almost the third wicket! Short in length, Chawla gets a bottom edge back to the keeper. 154/6

Chawla walks in.

18.5 Z Khan to P Dogra, OUT! What on earth are Mohali upto? Three run outs hardly in a space of time. The new man, Dogra pats it down to Kohli at extra cover and sets off. There was just no run there as Kohli has ample time to get close to the stumps even as Nayar was not close to the frame. Bangalore have two in two and can they pull of a stunning coup? 154/6

Paras Dogra walks in now at number 7.

18.4 Z Khan to D Hussey, OUT! David Hussey is run-out! Short in length, Hussey pulls it down through square leg and calls for two. The throw comes in from Vinay Kumar at fine leg.

Commentary (Royal Challengers Bangalore innings)

Azhar Mahmood is named the Man of the Match for his excellent bowling. That's it from all of us. Join us tomorrow for a crucial match between Mumbai and Pune at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium. Till then, farewell!

Five runs were required off the last over. It came down to the penultimate ball when Piyush Chawla managed to pull off a stunning maximum when just two runs were required off the last two balls. Mohali move to the FOURTH spot, while Bangalore slip down to the SIXTH place.

19.5 V Kumar to P Chawla, SIX! MOHALI WIN BY FOUR WICKETS! Chawla finishes it off in style. A length delivery at 120.2 kph, he got under it and just clobbered it over wide long on. Celebrations all over and the owner of Mohali cannot be seen more happier. 163/6

19.4 V Kumar to P Dogra, Short in length down the leg side, pulled away for a single at deep mid-wicket. Two RUNS OFF Two BALLS! 157/6

19.3 V Kumar to P Dogra, Over-pitched, hit well through covers for two. No one in the deep and they take a couple. THREE RUNS OFF THREE BALLS! 156/6

19.2 V Kumar to P Dogra, Fuller in length, he hits it straight back to Kumar, who actually DROPS it. But anyways, he avoided the boundary and most importantly, saved the runs. Was this the turning point? Had Dogra hit on either sides, it would have been a boundary since mid on and mid off were in the circle. 154/6

19.1 V Kumar to P Dogra, Short in length, Dogra gets a bottom edge as Kohli comes charging in from first slip. FIVE RUNS OFF FIVE BALLS! 154/6

Bangalore were looking strong at one stage when Chris Gayle was blasting his way out. They lost out in the end a bit even as Mahmood showed his experience with his top-class death bowling, while Praveen Kumar bowled superbly upfront. It is a very gettable target of 159. Join us in some time.

19.6 A Mahmood to A Pathan, Fuller length on off, flicked away through square leg for a run. 158/5

19.5 A Mahmood to A Pathan, Lovely bowling this. Loops a slower delivery outside off, Pathan waits and waits but could not get bat on that. 157/5

19.5 A Mahmood to A Pathan, Wide. Bowls a full and wide delivery. Pathan has a go and misses. 157/5

19.4 A Mahmood to S Tiwary, Low full toss outside off, hit down to Marsh at long on to pick up one. 156/5

Saurabh Tiwary walks in now at number 7.

19.3 A Mahmood to de Villiers, OUT! Mahmood gets another one. A low full toss now at 132.1 kph, AB could have hit it anywhere, but sends it straight down to Chawla at mid off. Mohali have come back well here. 155/5

19.2 A Mahmood to A Pathan, Darts in the yorker, Pathan digs it away on the off side to give the strike to AB. 155/4

Asad Pathan walks in.

19.1 A Mahmood to A McDonald, OUT! Fuller length outside off, McDonald goes hard, it fetches the outside edge and Saini takes a simple catch behind the wickets. 154/4

Chris Gayle and Mayank Agarwal are the openers out in the middle. It will be Praveen Kumar to bowl first up.

Bangalore - Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers(Wk), Saurabh Tiwary, Andrew McDonald, Daniel Vettori(C), Asad Pathan, Vinay Kumar, Zaheer Khan, KP Appanna.

Mohali - Mandeep Singh, Shaun Marsh, David Hussey(C), Azhar Mahmood, Abhishek Nayar, Paras Dogra, Nitin Saini(Wk), Piyush Chawla, Ryan Harris, Praveen Kumar, Parvinder Awana.

Toss - Mohali have won the toss and elected to field. Three changes for them as Ryan Harris, Abhishek Nayar and Paras Dogra replace David Miller, Bhargav Bhatt and Bipul Sharma. For Bangalore, Andrew McDonald and Asad Pathan replace Tillakaratne Dilshan and Harshal Patel.

The contest is getting tougher day by day as the tournament moves to the second half. Bangalore have not done justice to the kind of explosive players they have at their disposal. They stand 5th in the points table and now face a tough Mohali side, who at the start of the tournament, looked one of the weakest but have bounced back well. Mohali would be looking to continue their winning momentum, whereas Bangalore would be looking to hit back hard. A cracker of a contest is definitely on cards.

Hello and welcome to 44th match of the Indian T20 League between Bangalore and Mohali at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium.

It has been almost a dramatic turn-around here. Three run-outs in the last two overs. Mohali need 5 runs off 6 balls. Vinay Kumar, the person to bowl the last over, has a detailed discussion with Vettori.

Paras Dogra walks in now at number 7.

18.4 Z Khan to D Hussey, OUT! David Hussey is run-out! Short in length, Hussey pulls it down through square leg and calls for two. The throw comes in from Vinay Kumar at fine leg. David Hussey dives full-stretched but he is well short. Well well well, are we onto another twist in this fairy-tale for Mohali so far? 154/5
