    RCB win by 7 runs

    And RCB have managed to win this one by 7 runs. That was a great contest. It went down the wire with Jurel keeping RR's hopes alive. Siraj was good in the closing stages but would have not wanted to bowl those wides. Harshal was good as well. 45 were needed off the final three overs. Willey bowled the 18th and gave 12 runs. Siraj came for the 19th and gave 13 and Harshal held his nerves and defended 20 in the final over as he gave just 12. So 2 back-to-back wins for them and 2 back-to-back losses for RR. But RR are still on top, while RCB are at 5th. Brilliant game. Hope you enjoyed it, I Varun Malik, sign off.

    Virat at toss

    We would have batted first anyway. The wicket looks dry and it will get drier and might break up first. I didn't say that to Sanju, but I'm very happy to bat first. We both got to do what we wanted. They informed me last time saying I might have to captain a couple of matches, nothing I'm not used to doing. So I'm happy to step in, I am ready to continue from whatever Faf has been doing. The team has answered well, we are playing with a lot of energy and that showed in the last match. One change for us, David Willey comes in for Wayne Parnell. Faf continues to play as an impact sub.
