23:22 (IST)

That's it from us today as well. We saw one extraordinary performance from one of India's top T20 batsmen - KL Rahul. How unfortunate is it that no spectator was inside the stadium to see him get to the highest individual score by an Indian. A shocking performance on the other hand by RCB, who would like to forget this night and move on to the next game. Punjab have collected their first win. 

Tomorrow, we have another exciting contest coming up, between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals. See you tomorrow. Good bye and good night.

23:18 (IST)

KL Rahul is the Player of the Match for his incredible 132 not out, the highest score by an Indian in IPL history!

Rahul: It was good to be in the middle and see the team through. It was a complete team performance today. I had a chat with Maxi yesterday, and told him I’m still not in control of my batting. He said 'You've got to be joking'. I was nervous, but knew if I spent some time at the centre, it will all settle down. As a captain you’re short on time, but I still try to maintain the same routine. Till the toss, I try to think as a player and not as a captain. It’s as complete a team performance as it can get. We had a few different plans going into this game. We needed two-three wickets upfront and needed a big total on the board. I think everyone would be happy.

23:07 (IST)

Virat Kohli: I think we were pretty good in the middle of first innings. I take brunt of it, I dropped some chances. Maybe if we had restricted them under 180, we would not be under pressure from ball 1 in the chase. There are days when you have these kind of things happening in the field, we had a good game and now a bad game, we need to move on and we need to fix those mistakes. We did pretty well especially closing in the second time, should have left from the front little there. With the bat as well, we should have put them under pressure from the start.   

23:01 (IST)

That's the game for Punjab. They beat RCB by 97 runs, a massive victory for them. Chahal the last man to be dismissed. Fuller from Ashwin, Chahal sweeps but missed and the ball hits the pad, Punjab appeal and umpire raises the finger to finish the game. Punjab collect their first points. An embarrassing loss for RCB.

OUT! Brilliant from Ashwin, straighter and sharper, Saini gives it a go with a big swing but misses it, but the ball does not miss the stumps. RCB nine down. Navdeep Saini b Murugan Ashwin 6(7)

After 16 overs,Royal Challengers Bangalore 102/8 ( Navdeep Saini 2 , Dale Steyn 0)

Bishnoi completes his spell. What a match this has been from him. When he came on, ABD and Finch targeted him but he came back strongly. He has finished with figures of 3 for 32. Royal Challengers Bangalore need 105 runs in 24 balls.

22:51 (IST)

OUT! Six on the first ball and then another attempt on the second ball, but he could not connect it this time, has perished in that attempt. He departsfor 30. Time out taken. Washington Sundar c Agarwal b Ravi Bishnoi 30(27)

After 15 overs,Royal Challengers Bangalore 95/7 ( Washington Sundar 24 , Navdeep Saini 1)

Maxwell continues. Navdeep Saini has joined Sundar in the middle. Mere formalities left in the game. RCB probably trying to bat out their remaining overs for a better NRR. Seven from the over. Royal Challengers Bangalore need 112 runs in 30 balls.

IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Kings XI Punjab vs Royal Challengers Bangalore latest updates: That's the game for Punjab. They beat RCB by 97 runs, a massive victory for them. Chahal the last man to be dismissed. Fuller from Ashwin, Chahal sweeps but missed and the ball hits the pad, Punjab appeal and umpire raises the finger to finish the game. Punjab collect their first points. An embarrassing loss for RCB.

Preview: Kings XI Punjab would be looking to open their account in the points table when they take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the sixth match of the Indian Premier League at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Punjab were involved in a thrilling encounter with Delhi Capitals in their opener which ended in a tie. They, however, lost the subsequent Super Over where they could manage just two runs off the Kagiso Rabada over losing both the wickets. Delhi chased it down easily to register two points.

Opener Mayank Agarwal single-handedly kept KXIP in the match with a brilliant 60-ball 89. He kept his composure amidst regular fall of wickets and paced his innings to perfection. He, however, wasn't able to finish the match getting out with one run required off two balls.

The rest of the batting line-up need to step up against RCB. Their shot selection came under the scanner and they couldn't adapt. They started well with the ball with Mohammed Shami leading the way but lost their way at the death conceding 64 off the last five overs, of which 30 came in the last over from Chris Jordan. The team management would be hoping that the lessons will be learnt from the last match.

RCB, on the other hand, started off with a win against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Young opener Devdutt Padikkal burst onto the scene with an impressive 42-ball 56. He added 90 along with Aaron Finch and that set the platform. AB de Villiers then provided a late surge with a swashbuckling 51 off 30 balls to propel RCB to 163/5.

Yuzvendra Chahal was the game changer for them in the bowling department as the SRH middle and lower order imploded. Navdeep Saini bowled well for his 2/35 from four overs while Shivam Dube bowled tightly at the death to choke SRH completely. Dale Steyn and Umesh Yadav had off days and would be looking to bounce back against KXIP.

RCB might not look to tinker with the winning combination while KXIP have the choice of replacing Jordan with spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman.

It might come down to KXIP bowling vs RCB batting. All in all, it is perfectly set up for a cracker.
