  Mar 23, 2019  23:02 (IST)

This will be CSK's seventh consecutive win over RCB!

  Mar 23, 2019  23:01 (IST)

Scores are level now!

  Mar 23, 2019  23:01 (IST)

The way two teams have played today, if RCB would have scored between 100-120, it could well have been a winning score! 

  Mar 23, 2019  23:00 (IST)

What an over it is turning out to be for RCB and Mohammad Siraj! 6 dot balls! WOW!

  Mar 23, 2019  22:57 (IST)

Doing the best thing now, making CSK wait for their first victory!

  Mar 23, 2019  22:51 (IST)

CSK is now just one hit away! 

  Mar 23, 2019  22:46 (IST)

WICKET: Knocked him over! An absolute beauty of a delivery that was! Rayudu tried to go over the bowler, but the ball hit straight onto the stumps! 

  Mar 23, 2019  22:43 (IST)

The best RCB can do here is to take this game as deep as possible. They have lost this game, now the idea should be to keep the ball margin "less". After 14 overs, it's 58/2.

  Mar 23, 2019  22:40 (IST)

CSK is now just three hits away! How important will be the net run rate here?

  Mar 23, 2019  22:17 (IST)

ALERT: Suresh Raina becomes the first batsman to score 5000 IPL runs. 

  Mar 23, 2019  22:13 (IST)

Runs have been tough to come by but even then CSK has been able to find a boundary or two in every three overs which eventually is making scoreboard moving. RCB, on the other hand, is still in search of wickets! After 8 overs, it's 33/1.

  Mar 23, 2019  22:03 (IST)

RCB is bowling well, but to be true, they need wickets. Otherwise, CSK will chase it with ease! Ali and Chahal have been able to restrict men-in-yellow, but wicket section still shows ONE! After 6 overs, it's 16/1. 

  Mar 23, 2019  21:56 (IST)

DROPPED! Umesh Yadav not having the best time on the field! 

  Mar 23, 2019  21:54 (IST)

  Mar 23, 2019  21:49 (IST)

WICKET: First wicket down! Watson OUT for a duck. He wasn't looking in the best touch! 

  Mar 23, 2019  21:48 (IST)

It wouldn't be wrong to say that Navdeep Saini is bowling at some serious pace. So good to see a young Indian bowler making a name for himself! After 2 overs, it's 8/0. 

  Mar 23, 2019  21:44 (IST)

INNINGS STARTS! First runs for Rayudu and CSK!

  Mar 23, 2019  21:23 (IST)

WICKET: The last wicket falls! Parthiv Patel OUT! 

  Mar 23, 2019  21:18 (IST)

WICKET: It wouldn't be wrong to say that it has been a sensational performance by Chennai Super Kings. Ninth wicket down. Absolute blunder. Jadeja picks his second! 

  Mar 23, 2019  21:15 (IST)

No boundaries for RCB. After 16 overs, it's 69/8. 

  Mar 23, 2019  21:11 (IST)

  Mar 23, 2019  20:56 (IST)

WICKET: 022 is Mumbai's Pincode or three debutants score? 

Can RCB reach 100 total? 

  Mar 23, 2019  20:51 (IST)

WICKET: First went straight and then it turned. Six down - RCB!

  Mar 23, 2019  20:46 (IST)

WICKET: The debutants are not having the best of times. First Hetmyer and now Dube. Half-side back to the pavilion. 

  Mar 23, 2019  20:42 (IST)

Much-needed strategic timeout for Royal Challengers Bangalore. They are just not clicking with each other. Having lost four wickets in the first 9 overs, the road will be difficult in the last 11. After 9 overs, it's 45/4. 

  Mar 23, 2019  20:38 (IST)

In a span of just 23 minutes, RCB has lost FOUR wickets!

  Mar 23, 2019  20:34 (IST)
