Highlights

00:09 (IST)

That brings us to the end of the match 35 where we witnessed some belligerent hitting at the Eden Gardens. RCB grab two important points to just about stay alive in the competition. It is a double-header tomorrow, so do tune in early. We will be here with the blog from 3 pm onwards. See you then.

00:07 (IST)

Virat Kohli, MoM: It was important to have a win under our belt. In death overs there's no point in panicking. You got to leave it to the bowlers. Stoinis took few good decisions and then Ali in the end. They both showed composure and that's what you expect from your players. Our communication was to get 170-175, we didn't think we could get 200-plus. Moeen changed the game completely and that allowed to play my game. Moeen said I am going to go now and I asked him to go for it. He targeted the small boundaries and changed the game in those few overs. It was important to bat along when AB is not here. In the end death overs are going to be difficult with this kind of ground. Credit to Russell for setting up those kind of games.

00:05 (IST)

Virat Kohli is the Man of the Match for his century tonight

23:55 (IST)

This is how the win feels like!

23:54 (IST)

Dinesh Karthik: The way Moeen Ali batted he took the game away from us. I though they scored 25-30 runs too many. When a player like Virat plays, that's what he does. He played a brilliant knock in the end. The ball was seaming a little bit when we came to bat. The wicket was a little sticky but we thought we could get the score, but looking back their score was 20 runs too many. This is a hard wicket for spinners to bowl on. We wanted to take the spinners on, and kudos to the way RCB played. They did the small things better and deserved to win. If we get the winning feel again, it would start rolling again. If we do the right things, we can get back to winning.

KKR vs RCB Expert's Voice

Ok, the Russell onslaught has started. But is it too little too late? The asking rate is more than 15 now in the last five overs. Styen has one over left and Kohli should not hold him back.

KKR vs RCB Expert's Voice

This sort of knock is simply unacceptable from an experienced cricketer like Robin Uthappa. In a run-chase of 214, his innings of 9 off 19 balls has put KKR under extreme pressure. Now it is all about Russell.

Eventful first over from Chahal. Couple of boundaries, along with couple of wides as Uthappa and Rana bring out their reverse sweeps. However, Chahal had a golden chance of running out Rana that goes down begging. Uthappa misses a quick delivery and the ball rolls on the leg side, Rana hared for a single only to be sent back after he was halfway down the pitch. Parthiv unleashes a fast throw and Chahal isn't able to grab the ball. Rana had given up, but is able to get back into his crease.

Uthappa smacks a boundary first ball after the strategic timeout. Siraj gets a bouncer horribly wrong that flies way over Uthappa's head and then beats the leaping Parthiv for five wides. Siraj comes back with couple of dots as Uthappa looks to slide and ramp it down to the third man, keeps missing it. He gets one from the outside half of the bat to Dale Steyn at third man for a single. Rana collects a boundary off the final ball. Despite the 14 run over, KKR finally go level with the number of balls bowled. KKR need 160 off the back 10.

IPL 12 Match 35 KKR vs RCB at Eden Gardens at Kolkata: RCB beat KKR by 10 runs!

Rana gets a six on last ball with a shot over long-off but KKR fall short of the target by 10 runs. Fourth consecutive loss for KKR and RCB stay alive in playoffs race with this massive win.

IPL 2019, SRH vs CSK, Today's Match Preview: Royal Challengers Bangalore hopes of making the Indian Premier League playoffs hang by the slimmest of threads as they search for their second win of the tournament against Kolkata Knight Riders. For remaining in mathematical contention, RCB need to win all their remaining matches along with some miracle.

Kolkata will be looking to get back to winning ways when they lock horns with Bangalore. They have lost three in a row now and they need to bounce back before its too late. It was their batting that let them down in their last match, against CSK. Apart from Chris Lynn, who made 82, no one got going. The likes of Nitish Rana, Robin Uthappa and the captain himself, Dinesh Karthik, haven't contributed consistently and that has hurt the team.

Andre Russell suffered an injury scare after being hit on the shoulder during practice and KKR would be waiting with bated breath to see whether he will make it or not.

RCB have been going through a tough phase. After six losses on the trot, the finally managed points on the board with a win over KXIP but then faltered yet again, against Mumbai Indians. Their bowling has consistently let them down, especially the pacers. It's high time they deliver.

Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers have produced some decent knocks and RCB fans would again be banking on them to deliver. RCB are on tenterhooks, one more slip would mean disaster.

KKR start off as favourites.
