19:17 (IST)

Phew! What a chase! 

AB de Villiers arrived at the crease with 76 needed off 42 balls and he hit 55 of them from 22 balls with one four and six sixes. All through the innings the RCB batsmen were finding it difficult to get going. Padikkal struggled in the middle, Kohli could manage just one for and two sixes but then AB de Villiers batted on an altogether different wicket and pulled off a stunning win for RCB. That Unadkat 19th over which went for 25 runs was the turning point. May be Smith should have handed the penultimate over to Archer.

SIX! AB de Villiers has done it! 

It's full on middle and leg, AB de Villiers swings it over deep mid-wicket for a six to win the match in style. WHAT AN INNINGS and WHAT A PLAYER!

19:08 (IST)

Archer to bowl the last over. 10 needed for RCB!

19:07 (IST)

After 19 overs,Royal Challengers Bangalore 168/3 ( AB de Villiers (W) 47 , Gurkeerat Singh Mann 16)

What an over for RCB! Poor, poor bowling from Unadkat.
After two slower deliveries which are despatched over deep mid-wicket and long on for sixes respectively, Unadkat bowls one short and that too is dispatched for a six over deep square by AB de Villiers. Unadkat then goes very full outside off and AB de Villiers drives it to deep cover for a single. Unadkat then tries to bowl a short bouncer but it goes over the head of Gurkeerat for a wide. Unadkat then bowls another loose one outside off, Gurkeerat slashes it over extra cover for a four. Unadkat ends the over giving away a single. But he gave away 25 runs in that over. 10 runs needed off the last over.

FOUR! Unadkat is getting a proper hammering. Slower and short outside off, Gurkeerat slaps it over cover.

SIX! Three in a row. What superb hitting from RCB. Unadkat drops it short, De Villiers pulls it over deep square leg. 

19:02 (IST)

SIXES! AB de Villiers is doing it for RCB. Smashes a slower one from Unadkat over deep mid-wicket and then follows up with a massive six over wide long on for consecutive sixes.

IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Rajasthan Royals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore latest updates: Phew! What a chase!

AB de Villiers arrived at the crease with 76 needed off 42 balls and he hit 55 of them from 22 balls with one four and six sixes. All through the innings the RCB batsmen were finding it difficult to get going. Paddikal struggled in the middle, Kohli could manage just one for and two sixes but then AB de Villiers batted on an altogether different wicket and pulled off a stunning win for RCB. That Unadkat 19th over which went for 25 runs was the turning point. May be Smith should have handed the penultimate over to Archer.

Preview: Royal Challengers Bangalore would aim to bounce back after their eight-wicket loss to Kings XI Punjab when they take on an erratic Rajasthan Royals on Saturday.

RCB have won five of their eight games on the back of all-round performances but blundered tactically against KXIP on Thursday.

On the other hand, the Royals' campaign this season has been marred by numerous top-order collapses, forcing the lower half to pull them across the finish line.

RCB's five wins so far include a Super Over triumph over Mumbai Indians at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

The Royals, on the other hand, lie at the seventh spot in the points table with just three wins from eight outings.

Against KXIP in Sharjah, AB De Villiers, who has been in fine form, was sent in to bat at number six with left-hander Washington Sundar (13), a baffling decision by the RCB.

Shivam Dube (23) was promoted up the order to accompany skipper Kohli in the middle. The experiment didn't work as all three batsmen struggled with the South African scoring just two off five balls.

To add to RCB's woes, while defending the total, Kohli decided to save the in-form Sundar for the big-hitting Chris Gayle, who came to bat in the eighth over. That gamble didn't pay off either as the 41-year-old Jamaican smashed the young off-spinner for four sixes.

"We had a chat, a message from outside about left-right combination and we wanted to go with it because they had two leggies. Sometimes things don't come off. We're pretty happy with the decisions we took, but it didn't come off," Kohli said after the match.

Royals boast of a strong batting line-up. But the likes of Steve Smith, and Sanju Samson have failed to score since the two victories in Sharjah at the beginning of the tournament.

Jos Buttler too has been unable to capitalise on his starts, scoring just one half-century in seven innings.

After failing in his first match of the season, Ben Stokes, who has been elevated to the role of an opener, hit 41 before he was run out against the Delhi Capitals.

The inaugural season champions have relied on Rahul Tewatia to rescue them from precarious positions and the all-rounder managed to do that twice against KXIP and Sunrisers Hyderabad respectively. But he failed against the Capitals when yet again the top-order botched an easy run-chase.

Jofra Archer spearheads the Rajasthan bowling unit, along with the spin duo of Tewatia and Shreyas Gopal, who have consistently figured in an XI that has gone through a lot of chopping and changing.
