Highlights, RCB vs KKR Eliminator, IPL 2021 Full Cricket Score: Kolkata beat Bangalore by 4 wickets

IPL 2021, Eliminator 1 Live Updates: Dan Christian to bowl, and Shakib al Hasan hits a boundary off his first ball! It's scooped brilliantly over short fine leg! Very nice stuff from Shakib, innovative cricket under real pressure. Single now, two runs needed off four balls. Rapid single, and the scores are level! Shakib was sprinting almost before Morgan had made contact with the ball. KKR win by 4 wickets! It was a nervy finish, but they will now face Delhi Capitals for a spot in the final! Royal Challengers Bangalore's season comes to an end, and their wait for a title continues.

23:39 (IST)

That's it from us folks!

It was a really thrilling contest, with Sunil Narine really standing out thanks to his four-wicket haul and his explosive knock of 26. Kolkata Knight Riders will next take on Delhi Capitals for a spot in the final, which we will be covering right here! Until then, goodnight!

23:32 (IST)

PotM, Sunil Narine: "It was definitely one of my better performances, any good performance in a match you win is great. 

I was prepared to take risks and maybe even get out on the first ball. I wanted to do whatever the team requires of me, some days it comes off and some days it doesn't, but today was my day.

I enjoyed all my wickets, but getting Virat Kohli out was my goal, which I managed to do.

I'm getting close to where I was with my old action. KKR have supported me, and it's paid off, and I'll keep getting better hopeful.

I'm pretty calm and cool when I play cricket, I like having the ball in hand because I have a bit of control over what's happening."

23:30 (IST)

Eoin Morgan: "Narine bowled outstandingly well. He makes it look very easy. It was a good start from the bowlers as, throughout the innings, we continued to take wickets, and we were in control in the chase. It is a huge privilege when there are world-class spinners around. The cricket we have played has surprised everybody. Everyone came to UAE with a drive to perform and were motivated."

23:26 (IST)

Kohli bids goodbye to RCB captaincy!

23:26 (IST)

End of an era!

23:13 (IST)

Virat Kohli: "Well, I think the middle overs, in which their spinners dominated the game was the point of difference. They bowled in areas where it was very difficult to score, and they kept taking wickets. We had a good start, which we should have built on. It was more about quality bowling than poor batting, so they deserve to be on the winning side.

It was an outstanding display from the guys. We've never given up this season, and always come back strongly. That one big over with Narine really deflated us though, but we still fought to the end. 

Sunil Narine has always been a quality bowler, and he showed that tonight. Shakib and Varun bowled amazingly too, they created a lot of pressure and our batters couldn't get their shots away.

I've tried my best to create a culture at RCB which allows young cricketers to come in and play expressive cricket. I've tried to do that with India as well. I've given my best. I will continue to do so on the field as a player. It's a great time to regroup and restructure now, and we can bring in players who will take this franchise to the next level.

I don't see myself playing anywhere else. Loyalty matters more than any other worldy things. This franchise has believed in me, so my commitment is with this team until the end."

Kolkata Knight Riders beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by 4 wickets!

After 20 overs,Kolkata Knight Riders 139/6 ( Eoin Morgan (C) 5 , Shakib Al Hasan 9)

Dan Christian to bowl, and Shakib al Hasan hits a boundary off his first ball! It's scooped brilliantly over short fine leg! Very nice stuff from Shakib, innovative cricket under real pressure. Single now, two runs needed off four balls. Rapid single, and the scores are level! Shakib was sprinting almost before Morgan had made contact with the ball. KKR win by 4 wickets!

23:02 (IST)

After 19 overs,Kolkata Knight Riders 132/6 ( Eoin Morgan (C) 4 , Shakib Al Hasan 3)

12 needed off 12. It's still advantage KKR, but another wicket could turn this around. George Garton to bowl his second over, he's been a bit expensive already. Single and then a very well-run double to begin. Oh, good ball, it's a dot! Morgan hasn't been great this season, but you'd still back him to lead KKR to victory here. Single. Shakib on strike. Another single. This is edge of your seat stuff. Oh, call for out there, did it take a nick on its way into the gloves of Bharat? Don't think so, the umpire seems unconvinced. No one reviews it, it's just a dot.

22:57 (IST)

After 18 overs,Kolkata Knight Riders 127/6 ( Eoin Morgan (C) 1 , Shakib Al Hasan 1)

Mohammed Siraj back to bowl his final over. He starts off with a single, and then he has the wicket of Sunil Narine! Narine tries to slog, but he misses and the bail is taken clean off! 14 runs needed off 16 balls, and Eoin Morgan is on now. Single, and that was completely avoidable, RCB's fielders just end up psyching each other out. OH WAIT, THAT'S OUT! Dinesh Karthik is caught behind! Or is he? Big nick, and Bharat seems to have taken this cleanly, but the umpire is confused. We go upstairs. Dinesh Karthik has walked off, he's standing by the boundary ropes now. A whole lot of deliberation, a number of camera angles, but the third umpire is finally convinced, it's out! A twist in the tale? Shakib on now, he's off the mark with a single. Dot ball to end!

22:55 (IST)

OUT! Dinesh Karthik is caught out by Siraj's delivery, and he ends up pushing the ball into Bharat's hands! Dinesh Karthik c Bharat b Mohammed Siraj 10 (12 balls)

Very nice stuff from Shakib, innovative cricket under real pressure. Single now, two runs needed off four balls. Rapid single, and the scores are level!

Royal Challengers Bangalore's season comes to an end, and their wait for a title continues.

Preview: Maxwell inside-edges the pull shot onto the pads for a single. Second ball, Narine dismisses Kohli. Got the slower ball to turn from the middle, beating the bat and breaking the stumps. AB de Villiers comes in to bat. Two singles collected before an LBW appeal against ABD with the ball turning into him, but the impact was outside off. Last ball is reverse swept for a four.

On paper, both teams look strong and are coming into the crucial match having won their previous games. While RCB clinched a last-ball thriller against Delhi Capitals, KKR secured a big win over Rajasthan Royals.

RCB qualified for the playoffs and finished third on the league table with 18 points from nine victories. KKR didn't have the best of starts to the tournament back in India but turned their fortunes around in the second half in the UAE. They won seven matches out of 14 and finished above defending champions Mumbai Indians thanks to a better net run rate.

Kolkata's biggest positive is their bowlers. The likes of Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine have been impressive with their spells while Lockie Ferguson has also been in good form. Shivam Mavi also picked up four wickets in KKR's previous match and considering they are playing in Sharjah again, expect Morgan to name an unchanged side. With Shakib Al Hasan's inclusion in XI, KKR looked like a balanced team.

Virat Kohli's faith in KS Bharat reaped rich dividends as the wicketkeeper-batsman played a blinder to clinch victory against Delhi Capitals. He remained unbeaten on 78, hitting a six off the last ball to take his team over the line.

Glenn Maxwell is another consistent performer with the bat while the likes of Yuzvendra Chahal and Harshal Patel will be the key names in the bowling department.
