What a game that was. It was RCB who were in the driving seat until the last three overs. Andre Russell is a match-winner, but he seems to have taken his game to another level tonight. 48 off just 13 balls. Outrageous hitting. The hosts seemed to have lost their nerve at the end, but huge credit must go to Russell. Magnificent entertainment. That means RCB have lost five in five, and KKR get their third win. Join us for more IPL action tomorrow, where we have a double-header awaiting us.
19.1 - P Negi to S Gill
Stock ball back of a length, to leg on the back foot glancing, to short fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Nath.
Ov 19: 1 6 6 6 4 6 | 29 Runs
The most incredible innings you will ever see. Southee has tried everything, and gets pumped for a fourth six in the over. Blasted deep over the long off boundary this time.
18.6 - T Southee to A Russell
Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs.
Unstoppable batting from Russell. Slower ball bouncer, he arches the back, and lifts it over the keeper for four!.
18.5 - T Southee to A Russell
Slower ball short, down leg side on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control past fine leg for 4 runs.
Almost nails the yorker, but almost isn't good enough when Dre Russ is in this mood. Mullered over mid wicket for six more. He is looking at his bat like he didn't hit it well.
18.4 - T Southee to A Russell
Full toss, to leg on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.
Anywhere the bowler bowls, it is going the distance. Short, wide, and slashed over the third man fence this time.
18.3 - T Southee to A Russell
Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control over third man for 6 runs.
Cannot be bowling length to this man. He is ridiculous at striking a cricket ball. Free swing of the bat, and belted into the stands.
18.2 - T Southee to A Russell
Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.
18.1 - T Southee to S Gill
Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Nath.
