Virat Kohli has lost his wicket to a Morne Morkel short ball against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) for 13 runs off 15 balls in Royal Challengers Bangalore’s chase of 179. He was playing in the openers slot, rather than his usual No. 3 slot and it has not worked too well for him. Morkel was taken for a few runs in the previous overs but persisted with the short ball and has reaped rewards. LIVE UPDATES: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers Bangalore

The wicket will be a huge set back to RCB’s chances in the game. Morkel bowled beautifully in Match one and will be glad to have picked the fish in this match. Chris Gayle at the other end hasn’t looked too comfortable either. Dinesh Karthik has come out to accompany him now. LIVE SCORECARD: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers Bangalore

Earlier, KKR posted 178 thanks to brilliant performances from Gautam Gambhir at the start of the innings and Andre Russell towards the end of the innings. Chasing 179 at Eden Gardens was always going to be challenging for RCB. It will be interesting to see how it goes from here. IPL 2015: Complete Coverage
