Match 48, Indore

I've forgotten what it's like to have such an early finish! That was ruthless and brutal from RCB. From ball one, they didn't give KXIP a sniff. The hosts are in big, big trouble now, as their run rate has taken an absolute battering. Thank you very much for your company in this short but sweet souffle, and we'll see you tomorrow for the humdinger that is KKR v RR.

MoM: Umesh Yadav

Kohli: "The last one week has been very crazy for us. Now, we're sitting in a great position. We just have to win our two remaining games. I couldn't have asked for a more clinical performance from us. I thought Kings thought we'd be intimidated by their openers. We just kept them in check. The key was taking wickets at regular intervals. With their mystery spinner not playing, we wanted to put extra pressure on their batsmen. It's the perfect day for us. We want to take responsibility as batsmen, and we fancy chasing down. If me and AB get going in the middle order, we can take the game away from the opposition. I think we have got the right kind of momentum. We've got nothing to lose. We're not going to get ahead of ourselves."

Ashwin: "That wasn't a professional effort at all for us. Our batsmen have struggled more often than not. We've got to keep our chins up. We've got to win two games. We haven't got through the 20 overs only three or four down. The wheels came off at the wrong time. It's a quick turnaround now. It's time to try and put Mumbai to bed. Most of these guys have played cricket for a very long time. A lot of international cricketers didn't step up."

Royal Challengers Bangalore win by 10 wickets

End of Over 9 - 5 runs RCB 92/0
Virat Kohli*48* (28b 6x4 2x6)
Parthiv Patel40* (22b 7x4)

Four! He won't get to his half century! Goes for the swat through mid-wicket, gets the top edge and it's away for four

8.1 A Rajpoot to V Kohli, FOUR, 128.94 km/h short length just outside off stump.

Rajpoot has bowled a waist height full toss. A spot of luck for Virat, as he's dropped!

8.1 A Rajpoot to V Kohli, 1 run, no-ball.
End of Over 8 - 8 runs RCB 87/0
Virat Kohli*44* (26b 5x4 2x6)
Parthiv Patel40* (22b 7x4)
7.6 A Tye to V Kohli, one run, 129.35 km/h full length on middle stump.
7.5 A Tye to P Patel, one run, 110.83 km/h short length on off stump.

Four! A cheeky uppercut! Tye's given it his all here, but he just hasn't got anything to work with. Sent down to third man, and RCB require just four

7.4 A Tye to P Patel, FOUR, 131.09 km/h short length outside off stump.
7.3 A Tye to P Patel, no run, 106.33 km/h short length outside off stump.
7.2 A Tye to V Kohli, one run.
7.1 A Tye to P Patel, one run, 117.13 km/h good length outside off stump.

Timeout time. This has been ruthless from RCB. Kohli knows this needs to be a big win, so isn't messing about. To say KXIP need a miracle is understatement of the decade!

End of Over 7 - 13 runs RCB 79/0
Virat Kohli42* (24b 5x4 2x6)
Parthiv Patel*34* (18b 6x4)

Four! Bosh! 10 required. Short from Stoinis and pulled through mid-wicket

6.6 MP Stoinis to V Kohli, FOUR, 133.1 km/h short length just outside off stump.
6.5 MP Stoinis to P Patel, 1 leg bye.

Close! Brilliant attempt by Agarwal running in from deep mid-wicket. An awkward pull shot from Parthiv, Agarwal nearly gets there but can't get his hands under it

6.4 MP Stoinis to P Patel, two runs, 132.32 km/h short length on leg stump.
6.3 MP Stoinis to V Kohli, one run, 130.31 km/h short length outside off stump.

Four! As elegant as Lady Pearce! Back of a length, and Kohli just punches it with so little fuss through point. Who needs to smash the ball to all parts when you can light up a May evening with batting like that?!

6.2 MP Stoinis to V Kohli, FOUR, 132.67 km/h short length outside off stump.
6.1 MP Stoinis to P Patel, one run, 128.2 km/h short length just outside off stump.

Virat Kohli33* (21b 3x4 2x6)
Parthiv Patel*31* (15b 6x4)

Six! Hit with disdain! Full from Tye and Kohli has launched this over long off. Ends an extremely productive Powerplay

5.6 A Tye to V Kohli, SIX, 139.03 km/h full length just outside off stump.

Four! The hands of Otis Redding. Beautiful timing and placement, as he guides this down to third man

5.5 A Tye to V Kohli, FOUR, 131.2 km/h short length just outside off stump.
5.4 A Tye to V Kohli, no run, 138.36 km/h short length going down leg.

Parthiv Patel30* (14b 6x4)
Virat Kohli*22* (16b 2x4 1x6)

Four! Short and down leg, and hammered through backward square leg. RCB trying to win this in the Powerplay?

4.6 M Sharma to P Patel, FOUR, 132.43 km/h short length going down leg.

Four! Wrists worthy of Postman Pat! Short slower ball, and Parthiv has the class to pull this past short fine leg

4.5 M Sharma to P Patel, FOUR, 130.35 km/h short length on middle stump.
4.4 M Sharma to V Kohli, one run, 137.34 km/h full toss on middle stump.
4.3 M Sharma to P Patel, one run, 137.42 km/h short length going down leg.

Four! That's wonderful. Too much width on offer and slapped through the covers

4.1 M Sharma to V Kohli, one run, 110.31 km/h short length on off stump.
