    Bangalore win

    It took a big wait but Bangalore have finally come on board. They have defeated UP to register their first win of the tournament. They keep their playoff hopes alive. Heather Knight, Kanika Ahuja and Richa Ghosh have helped them big way in this win. They were good on the night and finally got over the line. UP Warriorz were outdone in the first half and they found it a hard task with not a big score on the board. Bangalore were put under pump with the key wickets they lost but Kanika Ahuja provided the much needed impetus and Richa Ghosh partnered her well. It's just the start for them and they need more wins and luck to favour them. That's it from our end. I Varun Malik, sign off, thanks for joining.

    17 needed off 24

    Kanika is eyeing her fifty now and RCB are 17 away from a win now.

  • 10:22 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    48 needed in 48

    Kanika Ahuja is playing a great hand. She has brought this to run-a-ball. Can she guide them home?


  • 10:16 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Bangalore imploding

    Bangalore have lost four wickets and they are imploding a bit here. Knight has gone back and this game is on the knife edge.

  • 9:37 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Mandhana cleaned up

    And she has been bowled. Deepti gets one through Mandhana's slog and she is all pumped.

  • 9:30 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Bangalore begin chase

    And we are back with the chase. Devine is breathing fire and is going behind Harris in the first over itself. And she is gone. Hit this well on the leg side but hit it straight to the deep mid-wicket fielder.

  • 9:18 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Warriorz bowled out for 135

    Warriorz have been bowled out for 135 as Ecclestone has got run out in the final over. Bangalore shall be pleased with this effort. This is not looking an over par total but they have somethig to fight for. RCBW got a perfect start as they scalped wickets after wickets in the powerplay. Harris and Deepti brought them back in the game but when they were eyeing an over par total, they were done by Perry. So Bangalore need 136 to kick start their campaign and keep themselves into the league. Back with the chase.

  • 9:12 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Warriorz 9 down

    Adn Warriorz are 9 down now as Shreyanka is bowling the final over. Some contributions down the order but will it be enough?

  • 8:53 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Perry lands heavy punch

    Perry has now got the hard hitter Harris out. This is a big blow to the resurging UP side, who were hoping for a competitive total with her batting throughout.

  • 8:49 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Perry gets Deepti

    And the 69-run stand has been broken. Perry comes and gets Deepti out at deep mid-wicket. This was a full toss on her legs, Deepti wanted to clear the ropes but gifts it to the boundary fielder. A well timely wicket for them. UP have crossed 100 as Harris is still out in the middle.

  • 8:40 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Harris, Deepti lead UP

    "This match is not going anywhere till Harris is out there," my colleague says to me. And she is proving it might well be true. She has hit 26 runs in 8 balls in the 12th and 13th over and is making her bat talk. Deepti is partnering well. Is it a mini comeback in the match? Only time will tell.

  • 8:24 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    UPW at 43/5 after 10

    It's all going RCBW's way at the moment. UPW are reeling down at 43/5 after 10 and need some great work to post fightable total.

  • 8:00 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Navgire goes

    RCBW have more in the store. Asha comes and gets Navgire in the first over after powerplay. Warriorz are now 4 down and are running on risk of getting bowled out.

  • 7:58 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    UP 29/3 after 6

    The powerplay ends and UP are reeling down at 29/3 after the first 6 overs. This is a great start for Bangalore. There is some swing early on the surface and the bowlers are bowling well. Navgire just hit a six over long on in the previous over. Will this get UP going? Or does RCB have more in the store?

  • 7:43 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Warriorz three down

    And Schutt strikes now as Warriorz lose another one. It's all happening for them at the moment. Good ball angling in to Tahlia as she had a slight poke at it, which carried to the keeper. 3 down for just 5 on the board. Some start for Bangalore.

  • 7:36 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Devine gets first two wickets

    Devine has got the wicket of Devika Vaidya and Bangalore get a great start. Make it two now. She has now got the big fish Healy. First over- both UP Warriorz done. The ball is swinging well as expected but this is good bowling.

  • 7:18 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    UPW's Playing XI

    One change. Grace Harris comes in for Ismail.

  • 7:17 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    RCB's Playing XI

    One change for RCBW. Kanika comes in.

  • 7:14 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Healy at toss

    We would have bowled first as well. But a great opportunity for the batters to go and put on some runs. Grace Harris is fit and comes in place of Shabnim Ismail. RCB have a good batting line up and will come hard at us. I am really proud of the way we have played so far.

  • 7:12 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Mandhana at toss

    We will bowl first. It is a new wicket and we will try to make use of it. Thanks to all the fans for supporting us, we have not played the brand of cricket we would like. But we have been backed and we want to do it for each other in the team. One change- Kanika is fit and back into the team.

  • 7:04 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    RCB win toss, opt to bowl

    So, Bangalore have won the toss and they are bowling first.

  • 6:54 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik
