Here is Amit Banerjee’s final report of the IPL 2015 Match 8 between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)

Warner, who is also the Man of the Match: What a performance by the bowlers. They did a fantastic job, the spells from Bopara and Boult towards the end were crucial. Anything under 200 is gettable. Great knock by Shikhar. RCB are a great team.

This is turning out to be a dream start for Sunrisers, as Varun Aaron comes on and he too delivers a full toss outside the off-stump, which Dhawan dispatches for a four pas the man at point. RCB need inspiration, the game is slowly running out from their grabs. SRH have scored far too many runs in the first three overs. After a long delay, Aaron delivers an excellent yorker which Dhawan somehow manages to defend. ANOTHER FULL TOSS but RCB must thank de Villiers for saving a certain boundary! Next two balls are dots.

The fifth ball is delivered from around the wicket, and Dhawan puts it on the midwicket region for third four in the over!


Royal Challengers Bangalore have not posted a massive total here but they will feel this is defendable. Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers missed out on half-centuries, whereas Trent Boult and Bhuvneshwar Kumar claimed three and two wickets respectively.

Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 148/5 | Overs 18

BATSMEN: AB de Villiers 42 (26), Sean Abbott 14 (8)

Praveen comes on. The SRH bowlers have done well in bowling to de Villiers right into the pads, as the batsman has not been able to connect on many of these. But then, Praveen undoes the good work with a full toss and Abbott sends it flying for a massive SIX! The fourth ball is hit well, down the ground as RCB add two more. Width on the final ball and Abbott gets a four! What a shot!


Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 134/5 | Overs 17

BATSMEN: AB de Villiers 42 (25), Sean Abbott 2 (3)

Bhuvneshwar is back into the attack. The first ball hits de Villiers on the pads but still the batsmen manage to add one run to their total. All hopes on de Villiers for a challengeable total. Sean Abbott, without even facing one ball, gets his gloves changed. Strange! Swing and a miss for Abbott on the second ball. A single on the third ball brings de Villiers back on strike. Excellent stuff from Bhuvi, who gets his yorker right and de Villiers is able to take only a single. Fine shot! Width on the final ball and de Villiers slams it for four on the off side.


Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 125/5 | Overs 16

BATSMEN: AB de Villiers 36 (22),

First over in the innings for Ashish Reddy. De Villiers collects two runs on the leg side off the first ball, and the second ball is again hit well in deep fine leg area for two runs. Poor from Reddy, who gifts one wide on the leg side to de Villiers and the batsman hits a SIX comfortable. Really a poor ball! De Villiers tries the same shot on the fourth ball but is hit on the pads directly. BOWLED! Sammy cleaned up on the final ball of the over!

OUT! Darren Sammy b Ashish Redyy 6 (9)


Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 114/4 | Overs 15

BATSMEN: AB de Villiers 25 (17), Darren Sammy 6 (8)

Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 110/4 | Overs 14

BATSMEN: AB de Villiers 24 (14), Darren Sammy 4 (5)

Bopara continues. After a single on the first ball and a dot, AB de Villiers plays a beautiful sweep shot to get a four and bring up the 100-run mark for RCB. Bopara is only trying to bowl slow, not giving the batsmen the opportunity to score easy runs off him. SIX! De Villiers hits one on the midwicket area in the air, Shikhar Dhawan takes the catch but he finds himself having crossed the boundary ropes!


Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 97/4 | Overs 13

BATSMEN: AB de Villiers 13 (10), Darren Sammy 2 (3)

Darren Sammy is the new man in with his side being in tremendous pressure at the moment. They will have to bat lot more sensibly now and try and get to a respectable score. Excellent over for the Sunrisers as two wickets were the highlights.


Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 93/4 | Overs 12

BATSMEN: AB de Villiers 11 (7)

WHAT A CATCH! Mandeep Singh gets a leading edge and David Warner takes a fantabulous one-handed diving catch at the extra cover to get the fourth wicket! What an effort from the SRH skipper! Warner moves a couple of paces to his right, dives and grabs the ball with his right hand.

OUT! Mandeep Singh c David Warner b Ravi Bopara 0 (1)


Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 93/3 | Overs 11.5

BATSMEN: AB de Villiers 2 (3)

AB de Villiers slams the first ball for a boundary which was short and wide, and an edge on the second gets RCB another four. Bopara is trying a lot of slower deliveries, which have been picked up really well by Kohli and the other RCB batsmen so far. But there it is! Bopara gets the big man as Virat Kohli, trying to make room, misses and the ball hits the off-stump!

OUT! Virat Kohli b Ravi Bopara 41 (37)


Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 84/2 | Overs 11

BATSMEN: Virat Kohli 41 (36), AB de Villiers 2 (3)

AB de Villiers is at the crease as RCB hopes will be now pinned on these two to get a big total here. There are enough overs left and the wicket of de Villiers will be extremely crucial for Sunrisers. Kohli continues the good work as he comes down the track and slams a four through covers. Seven runs and a wicket in the over from Karn Sharma.


Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 77/2 | Overs 10.1

BATSMEN: Virat Kohli 36 (34),

OUT! Dinesh Karthik 9 (10)


Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 77/1 | Overs 10

BATSMEN: Virat Kohli 36 (34), Dinesh Karthik 9 (10)

WHAT A SHOT! Kohli comes down the track and hits inside out on the first ball from Praveen to get a four through the covers. The second one is a slower one, Kohli picks it well and slams it over midwicket for a SIX! Good cricket as the third ball is hit to the third man for a single. Fourth ball is a dot. Fifth ball is again a slower one, and Karthik pushes on the leg side for a single. Good over for RCB, 12 runs scored off it.


Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 65/1 | Overs 9

BATSMEN: Virat Kohli 25 (30), Dinesh Karthik 8 (8)

Change in bowling as Karn Sharma starts off with a bad, short delivery. Karthik hits well but straight to the man at deep midwicket. DROPPED! Kohli hits straight to the bowler really hard, who is not able to grab the chance! RCB need to push their scoring rate now, as they are yet to take it past eight an over in this innings. Kohli and Karthik dealing only in singles. Seven runs added from the over.


Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 59/1 | Overs 8

BATSMEN: Virat Kohli 21 (26), Dinesh Karthik 6 (6)

Praveen continues. The RCB batsmen are challenging the fielders who are standing in the ring with some sharp singles. First two balls get two singles to Bangalore. Kohli gets his bat changed and the third ball is defended by the skipper. The fourth is on the pads, and Kohli is not able to get a single. Good over from Praveen as RCB are able to add only two runs off it. STRATEGIC TIME OUT NOW.


Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 57/1 | Overs 7

BATSMEN: Virat Kohli 20 (21), Dinesh Karthik 5 (5)

Ravi Bopara is off to a poor start as the first ball is wide down the leg and runs down to the boundary. Five runs extra for RCB. Kohli then takes a single on the first legitimate ball, and Karthik too takes a sharp single with the third man standing close. Lucky for Bopara, a full toss dolly is not punished by Kohli, who only hits it straight to extra cover. Single off the fourth ball. RCB bring up their 50 in the over as they add 10 runs from it.


Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 47/1 | Overs 6

BATSMEN: Virat Kohli 17 (17), Dinesh Karthik 4 (3)

Dinesh Karthik is the new man in and he starts off with two dot balls, and gets a four on the last ball of the over in fine leg. Nicely executed stroke from the RCB batsman. Good over from the SRH perspective though, they got the rid of RCB mainstay Chris Gayle.


Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 43/1 | Overs 5.3

BATSMEN: Virat Kohli 17 (17)

Praveen Kumar is into the attack for the first time in IPL 2015. Good to see the senior bowler in action after a long time. Gayle hits a four on the second ball, a swing towards the midwicket area where there was no fielder. And Praveen STRIKES! Chris Gayle is OUT on the third ball at the deep square leg.

OUT! Chris Gayle c Ashish Reddy b Praveen Kumar 21 (16)


Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 39/0 | Overs 5

BATSMEN: Chris Gayle 17 (13), Virat Kohli 17 (17)

If there was a mindless swat in the last over, then Kohli improvises as he picks one outside off from Boult and sends it flying over the long on boundary for a SIX! The second ball is decent as Kohli can only defend it on the front foot. Kohli is enticed on an away going delivery, chases it and misses. WIDE. Another inswinging yorker attempted but Kohli makes room, finds the gap through midwicket and gets another FOUR! The bowler loses balance as he falls down in his follow-through. Boult then changes line and length, beats the RCB skipper outside the off-stump. What a contest!


Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 28/0 | Overs 4

BATSMEN: Chris Gayle 17 (13), Virat Kohli 7 (11)

Kohli hits on the third man region on the first ball from Bhuvneshwar on the first ball and takes a single. Gayle faces the next two deliveries and he is watchful.

Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 23/0 | Overs 3

BATSMEN: Chris Gayle 13 (8), Virat Kohli 6 (10)

Boult continues as Kohli gets an inside edge into the pads, nervous moment for the RCB captain! The second ball is wide and then Kohli hits one straight to the man at extra cover. Swing and a miss! A cross-batted heave from Kohli looking to hit on the midwicket region but the RCB skipper is beaten on the fourth ball. WHAT! Another inswinger from Boult, looks like the ball hit the pad and there was a loud appeal for caught behind as well. Not a bad shout, perhaps it was OUT! Umpire does not think so. Excellent over from the left-arm bowler, only three runs scored.


Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 20/0 | Overs 2

BATSMEN: Chris Gayle 13 (8), Virat Kohli 5 (4)

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is into the attack and after defending the first ball, Virat Kohli plays a lovely cover drive to get his first boundary. The bowler then improvises as Kohli is able to get off the strike with a single to the third man on the fourth ball. Wow! Gayle makes room on an incoming delivery on good length and hits it past mid on to get another four! Beaten on the final ball.


Live cricket score Royal Challengers Bangalore: 11/0 | Overs 1

BATSMEN: Chris Gayle 9 (6), Virat Kohli 0 (0)

So Virat Kohli walks out to open once again with the giant Chris Gayle. Trent Boult steams in. ONE. Gayle gets away off the first over. TWO, WIDES. Down leg, and Kohli runs through for one. DOT. Great ball, late movement away from Gayle. SIX! CHRIS GAYLE IS THE MAAN! That’s his 200th IPL six as well! Straight back over Boult’s head over long on. TWO. Gayle goes hard once again, but doesn’t get it anywhere near the middle. They get two. DOT. Gayle lets it go outside off. DOT. Great yorker, swinging late but Gayle kept it out.

Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live blog of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 match No. 8 between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Monday. This is Devarchit Varma, and I will be bringing you the over-by-over live cricket updates of the match here.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are coming off from a win and they will be aiming to build-up on the momentum generated in their opening match of IPL 8. Chris Gayle slammed a fine 96 as RCB trumped the defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by three wickets in a thrilling encounter at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

On the other hand, the Sunrisers Hyderabad, captained by David Warner, were completely rusty as they failed to put up a good show in their opening match of IPL 2015, and lost to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 45 runs. With the ball Sunrisers Hyderabad were very poor as CSK notched up a score in excess of 200, and when they came out to chase, SRH failed to find any batsmen who could provide them some inspiration.

As far as the IPL 2015 Points Table is concerned, the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are at the third spot with their Net Run Rate being +0.571. The Sunrisers Hyderabad have a huge task in their hand as the big defeat to the Chennai Super Kings saw their NRR plummeting to -2.250.

Squads:

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB): Virat Kohli (c), Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers, Darren Sammy, Mitchell Starc, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Subramaniam Badrinath, Sean Abbott, Adam Milne, Nic Maddinson, Ashok Dinda, Manvinder Bisla, Varun Aaron, Vijay Zol, Sarfaraz Khan, Jalaj Saxena, Shishir Bhavane, Iqbal Abdullah, David Wiese, Rilee Rossouw, Abu Nechim, Harshal Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Sandeep Warrier, Yogesh Takawale, Jalaj Saxena.

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH): David Warner (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Dale Steyn, Karn Sharma, KL Rahul, Ishant Sharma, Trent Boult, Kane Williamson, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Naman Ojha, Praveen Kumar, Siddharth Kaul, Ashish Reddy, Parvez Rasool, Moises Henriques, Ravi Bopara, Ricky Bhui, Chama Milind, Eoin Morgan, Prasanth Padmanabhan, Laxmi Ratan Shukla, Hanuma Vihari.

BATSMEN: Yuzvendra Chahal 1 (1)

Live cricket score Sunrisers Hyderabad: 41/0 | Over 3

BATSMEN: Shikhar Dhawan 15 (8), David Warner 25 (10)

This is turning out to be a dream start for Sunrisers, as Varun Aaron comes on and he too delivers a full toss outside the off-stump, which Dhawan dispatches for a four pas the man at point. RCB need inspiration, the game is slowly running out from their grabs. SRH have scored far too many runs in the first three overs. After a long delay, Aaron delivers an excellent yorker which Dhawan somehow manages to defend. ANOTHER FULL TOSS but RCB must thank de Villiers for saving a certain boundary! Next two balls are dots.
