RCB finally get a win on the board. It has taken them seven games but their season is underway. It might be too late to get into the playoffs but their best players have stood up today and produced a fantastic chase. Virat Kohli hit a fine 67 while AB de Villiers finished unbeaten on 59 along with Marcus Stoinis (28 from 16). First time Kings XI have been beaten at this venue this year but they came across a better team on the day.

19.2 - S Khan to M Stoinis

Leg spinner back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to long off for 2 runs, fielded by Rahul.

Ashwin has turned to Sarfaraz for his first over in IPL cricket. It hasn't started great with Stoinis giving himself room and drilling the ball to the rope. Two more needed.

19.1 - S Khan to M Stoinis

Is that the shot which gets RCB their first win. AB gets across all three stumps, crouches down and gets the perfect delivery to lap-sweep. Huge six at this stage of the game.
