Just how do you hit those over the fence? Just, how? Take a bow, Kumar. An exceptional penultimate over has been followed by an even better last over by one of the best death bowlers going around. A yorker to end everything and it is outside off. De Grandhomme walks across and tries to flick but he only manages to get a thick inside edge onto his stumps.
23.27 IST: FOUR! Fortune is favoring Bangalore here! This is an excellent delivery. A yorker on off. Colin tries to jam it out but gets a bottoem edge past the keeper for a boundary. 20 from 15.
23.21 IST: SIX! Back-to-back maximums and Bangalore have come alive. Tossed up around middle and off, Colin sits down and slog sweeps this one. It sails over a leaping Dhawan at deep mid-wicket for another biggie. He is turning it on here.
23.19 IST: SIX! Goodness me! That is brute force from the Kiwi! Googly again on the shorter side, Colin de Grandhomme stays put and whips it across the line. The ball dashes flush on the adverting cushion and it's a maximum. Wow.
23.13 IST: FOUR! He's hit that alright! Oh dear! Sloppiness from Kaul in the deep. Holds back to a slower length delivery and pulls it off the middle through mid-wicket. Kaul in the deep comes across to his left and lets the ball through his hands for a boundary. 9 off the over, a fruitful one for Bangalore.

22.56 IST: OUT! Siddarth Kaul removes Ali for 10. Another one bites the dust! Half the side back in the hut for Bangalore. What a turnaround this match has seen here. Three wickets in the last three overs. Another bowling change does the trick. The debutante's stay is a short one. This is on a length and around off, it angles away further. Moeen goes for the pull but the ball takes the bottom edge and goes into the mitts of Saha. He takes it and appeals. Kaul is seen pleading. The umpire gives it a thought and raises his finger. Ali starts to walk. Hyderabad are all over Bangalore here. Royal Challengers Bangalore 84/5 in 11.4 overs vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (146-all out).
22.53 IST: FOUR! Almost another! Inside edge! Kaul slants it away on a length outside off, Ali with no feet movement goes after it. Gets an inside edge as the ball just about evades the leg pole and scoots down to the fine leg fence for a streaky boundary. RCB 84/4 in 11.1 overs.
22.51 IST: Mandeep Singh is the next man in.
22.50 IST: OUT! Rashid Khan removes de Villiers for 5. TIMBER! The two superstars for Bangalore are back in the hut in two overs. Once again it is the googly which does the trick. He survived a scare on the last ball but this time sees his stumps get knocked over. Rashid gets his first, he could have had three by now. It is the wrong 'un outside off. It turns back in and once again ABD fails to pick it. He goes back to cut but misses to see his stumps get shattered. Bangalore in trouble now. 67 more needed.

22.46 IST: Moeen Ali comes out to bat.
22.45 IST: OUT! Shakib removes Kohli for 39. WHAT A CATCH! Yusuf Pathan you beauty! Shakib gets the big fish. Once again the bowling change works wonders for Williamson. This is bowled flatter on off, Kohli tries to whip it through mid-wicket but gets an outside edge which lobs towards Pathan at short third man. For a second it seemed like it would go over him but he times his leap to perfection, stretches a hand out and the ball sticks. Outstanding! Another drop catch has not cost a lot and Kohli who was looking so fluent out there is walking back. Game on! Royal Challengers Bangalore 74/3 in 9.5 overs vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (146-all out).
22.37 IST: DROPPED AND FOUR! Kohli has been dropped and it is the skipper who has scuffed it. Has he dropped the game? The leg spinner on off, it turns away. Kohli tries to push it through the off side but gets an outside edge towards first slip. Williamson there gets low but only manages to get fingers to it and it add to that the ball races away to the third man fence. Rashid now has two catches dropped of his bowling.
22.31 IST: AB de Villiers arrives next.
22.30 IST: OUT! Sandeep Sharma removes Vohra for 8. CHOPPED IT ON! Very unfortunate for Manan Vohra but Sandeep won't mind at all. He strikes off his first ball of his new spell. A much-needed wicket for Hyderabad. It is the slower one on the pads, Vohra shuffles across and goes for the slog sweep. The ball however, hits his gloves, the goes onto hit his pads, lobs up and hits the back of the bat and then rolls onto the stumps. Vohra can't believe it as he stands there in disbelief. He has to walk off though and the drop catch has not cost the home side a lot. The visitors need another 87 in 77. Royal Challengers Bangalore 60/2 in 7.1 overs vs Sunrisers Hyderabad in Hyderabad.
22.28 IST: RCB 60/1 in 7 overs. Rashid Khan to Virat Kohli, no run. The leg spinner on off, Kohli pushes it to covers. Just five from Rashid's first. They need more of such overs.
22.24 IST: The powerplay has come to an end and Bangalore have put it to good use. Parthiv's dismissal hasn't rattled the visitors one bit as Kohli takes control. It's not a difficult target to chase, but Hyderabad have won in such situations before. Rashid Khan comes into the attack. RCB 55/1 in 6 overs
22.21 IST: FOUR! Kohli is on the charge here! He is taking full toll of the Powerplay. Comes down the track to a length ball and whips it over the mid-wicket fielder for another boundary. RCB 51/1 in 5.1 overs

22.12 IST: OUT! Shakib Al Hasan removes Parthiv for 20. Shakib has the last laugh and the way he celebrated it shows how much that means to him. Hyderabad needed this. Shakib fires this one on middle. Parthiv once again goes for the sweep but this time he misses to get hit on the pads. The players appeal and the umpire after giving it a thought raises his finger. So a good little innings by Parthiv comes to an end. he has provided Bangalore with a start here. RCB 24/1 in 2.5 overs
22.10 IST: FOUR! Another one and down the ground. It is never a good idea to get a left-arm spinner against a left handed batsman and Parthiv is showing exactly why. Shakib tosses it up again on middle, Parthiv goes over mid on this time for a boundary. Consecutive ones. RCB 24/0 in 2.4 overs
22.09 IST: FOUR! Smashed to square leg. Over the covers and towards the fence. RCB 20/0 in 2.3 overs

22.04 IST: FOUR! The first boundary is struck by Parthiv. Wrong line to start off with by Kumar. On the pads. It is bread and butter stuff for Parthiv there as he flicks it through square leg and the ball races away. RCB 9/0 in 1.1 overs
22.00 IST: In the air... but safe! A good shot but not off the middle. Fuller on off, Vohra lofts it over mid on. The connection was not sweet but enough to collect a brace. RCB 2/0 in 0.4 overs
21.59 IST: The RCB batsman are out as Parthiv Patel and Manan Vohra start the chase. The total is not that big but Hyderabad do have a very good bowling attack. They make their way out to the middle. Sandeep Sharma will bowl the first over. Let's get started.

Opener Shikhar Dhawan's low strike rate must be a concern for them along with a shaky middle-order. READ FULL PREVIEW HERE
