23:40 (IST)

Fine comeback from the Punjab Kings as they outshine the Royal Challengers Bangalore in all three departments to walk away with a 34-run victory. Despite the late charge that helped RCB salvage some pride, KL Rahul’s men will be proud of themselves for the margin of victory, which will have given their Net Run Rate a big boost. RCB’s NRR, despite the heroics of Harshal Patel and Kyle Jamieson down the order, goes into the negative this evening as Virat Kohli and Co remain third on the points table, between Delhi Capitals (2) and Mumbai Indians (4).

Hope you were satisfied with our coverage of the 26th game of the season. Do join us for the cracker of a contest that promises to unfold as Mumbai Indians take on Chennai Super Kings in a clash that has over the years been referred to as ‘IPL’s El Classic’.

23:34 (IST)

Harpreet Brar: I am from Moga. My family will be happy, their best wishes have brought me here. A bowler has a chance of a comeback, I was thinking that I will make a comeback (after being hit for a six and a four by Kohli). My first IPL wicket is Virat paaji, so I was very happy. And then I went with a flow, you get confident and things fall into place. It feels like a dream. I had the time to see one or two overs, and Rahul bai helped me talking about conditions and the shots I could play.

23:34 (IST)

Harpreet Brar is named the Man of the Match

23:29 (IST)

KL Rahul, Punjab Kings captain: (Where was Harpreet Brar all this time?) We were preparing him. On a pitch like this, we felt like we need a finger-spinner who can really bowl hard lengths and hit the deck. He kept low, that was the planning and that what he did in the end. I’m young myself, but I’ve been trying to speak to the boys and whatever little experience I have, I try to pass it on to them. They’ve been blessed with enormous talent, but it’s important we prepare them for whatever situation. Makes me as the captain and the support staff very happy. There’s nothing in particular. (On Chris Gayle) He just seems to be getting better and better with the bat and getting more and more aggressive. That’s the kind of man Chris is, he’ll do everything for the team, and he just looks hungry every time. Nice to have someone like him in the middle, takes the pressure off me.

23:20 (IST)

Kohli: They got off to a decent start, we pulled things back, we gave away 25 extra runs in the end, should have been chasing 160. In the end, we got a little bit away from the plan. With the bat we never really got momentum, they bowled really well to be honest. It was tough to hit through the line. It was about getting partnerships and making sure we kept hitting boundaries. We could have done some things well. It's a few tweaks we need to address going into the next match.

The composition of the team is such that...Rajat controlled the game for us in the last match. We give him the freedom, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Maxi at 4 and AB at 5 has really worked for us and according to situations, if there is a partnership up front, one of them can come early as well. A bit of positive in the end, pulled things back nicely. Harshal and Jamieson got few runs in the end which got us to a good total.

23:07 (IST)

After 20 overs,Royal Challengers Bangalore 145/8 ( Kyle Jamieson 16 , Mohammed Siraj 0)

Riley Meredith gets the final over. Jamieson smacks the back-of-length delivery first ball over deep midwicket for a six, before smashing the ball straight down the ground that, unfortunately for the bowler, hits him flush below the kneecap — resulting in the Aussie having to hobble his way back to the dugout, a sensible decision on the team management’s part. Shami’s given the last four deliveries to cap off the innings, getting hit for a boundary first up before Bishnoi pulls off a stunner at long on to bring Harshal’s firework-laden cameo to an end. A single and a dot to finish things off.

Punjab Kings defeat Royal Challengers Bangalore by a handsome margin of 34 runs!

OUT! Another five-star grab for Ravi Bishnoi in the deep! This time he dives forward after having to cover a fair bit of distance to pull off an absolutely beauty! Harshal's gone after a handy cameo that got him 31 runs off just 13 balls. RCB 144/8

After 19 overs,Royal Challengers Bangalore 133/7 ( Kyle Jamieson 8 , Harshal Patel 27)

Harshal keeps the runs — valuable from RCB’s standpoint as far as their NRR’s concerned — coming in the form of back-to-back boundaries at the start of the over. A single each to Harshal and Jamieson over the next three deliveries, before the former ends the over with a clean hit over long on for a maximum. RCB need another 47 off 6.

Preview: Punjab Kings (PBKS) desperately hope to revive their floundering campaign and keep their chances of making it to the playoffs alive when they take on the high-flying Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Friday at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

With the tournament nearing its halfway stage — the PBKS-RCB match being the 26th of the 56 league stage games this season — the points table is starting to paint a picture of the teams that are likely are make it to the last four of the competition, and Bangalore are among the teams that are strong favourites at this point, having won five of their six games including four games on the bounce at the start of the season.

It therefore goes without saying that Virat Kohli's men will be entering this game as strong favourites, given the fact that departments such as the middle order and the bowling unit are flourishing along with their top order. Add to the fact that they're coming off a thrilling one-run win over Delhi Capitals, a victory that would've helped them regain their confidence after getting outplayed at the hands of Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

Punjab, who had suffered a five-wicket defeat at the hands of fellow strugglers Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their last outing, have faced a myriad of problems so far this season. Despite their star-studded batting order that boasts of the likes of KL Rahul and Chris Gayle in their top three, the Kings haven't quite been able to score as freely as they would've liked which have led to sub-par scores.

Barring individuals such as Mohammed Shami and Ravi Bishnoi — who was initially benched for a few games — the bowling unit hasn't prospered either, leading to even more headache for the team leadership. The Anil Kumble-coached side though, will hope they are able to come up with answers later this evening.

Squads:

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Virat Kohli (c), Devdutt Padikkal, Rajat Patidar, Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers (w), Washington Sundar, Daniel Sams, Kyle Jamieson, Harshal Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Siraj, Daniel Christian, Sachin Baby, Srikar Bharat, Navdeep Saini, Pavan Deshpande, Mohammed Azharuddeen, Finn Allen, Suyash Prabhudessai, Shahbaz Ahmed

Punjab Kings: KL Rahul (wk/c), Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Deepak Hooda, Nicholas Pooran, Moises Henriques, Shahrukh Khan, Chris Jordan, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh, Mandeep Singh, Dawid Malan, Jalaj Saxena, Murugan Ashwin, Sarfaraz Khan, Fabian Allen, Saurabh Kumar, Jhye Richardson, Ishan Porel, Riley Meredith, Utkarsh Singh, Darshan Nalkande, Prabhsimran Singh, Harpreet Brar
