    RCB vs SRH Live Score: End of the road for Faf?

    Can this be the match that can end Faf Du Plessis’ tenure as the RCB skipper? The only big option in the side is Virat Kohli and if he is not interested, RCB may struggle to find a skipper who is also in good form. However, it has been a horrible day at the office and it can only get worse from this point.

    SRH 217/2 after 16 overs

  • 20:48 (IST)

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: Fifty for Klaasen

    Heinrich Klaasen joins the party and it is a 23-ball half century for the South Africa international. RCB bowlers have absolutely no idea what to do and it looks like the 277-run record may be in trouble at the moment.

    SRH 216/2 after 15.5 overs

  • 20:39 (IST)

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: Klaasen power

    18 runs from the over bowled by Mahipal Lomror and Heinrich Klaasen has now picked up from where Travis Head left. Two huge sixes and 250 is well within reach for the destructive SRH batters. Carnage at the Chinnaswamy!

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: Head departs

    Travis Head finally departs for 102 after a brilliant hundred as Lockie Ferguson takes his first wicket for Royal Challengers Bengaluru. A rare miscue from the left-hander and Faf Du Plessis took the catch perfectly to hand RCB a rather important breakthrough.

    SRH 170/2 after 12.5 overs

  • 20:28 (IST)

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: Head slams ton

    Century for Travis Head and it came in just 39 balls. What a knock from the Australian batter. The Indian fans may have mixed feelings for him due to the World Cup final but there can no denying the genius that he has shown today. 250 well and truly on the cards!

    SRH 157/1 after 11.5 overs

  • 20:25 (IST)

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: RCB Playing XI

    Yash Dayal has tried everything but nothing has worked. This is just a special batting show from SRH and there seems to be no answers from Faf and Co. Meanwhile, Travis Head is marching towards a brilliant ton.

    SRH 142/1 after 11 overs

  • 20:18 (IST)

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: Helpless RCB

    This is going from bad to worse for RCB. The bowlers have looked completely clueless against a quality SRH batting which is showing no signs of slowing down. Klaasen has joined Head out in the middle and 250 can be within touching distance for these explosive batters.

    SRH 136/1 after 10.2 overs

  • 20:11 (IST)

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: Finally a wicket

    Some good news for RCB! Abhishek Sharma went for another big shot but this time, the connection was not great and Lockie Ferguson completed the catch to hand the success to Reece Topley. However, Travis Head continue to terrify the bowlers and Heinrich Klaasen is promoted to provide more fireworks.

    SRH 119/1 after 9 overs

  • 20:06 (IST)

    Vijaykumar Vyshak is the new bowler for RCB and it was actually a better over considering how the game has gone. Just one six and 11 runs coming in the over. Abhishek Sharma is also joining the party and he will be looking to add another half century to his name.

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: Jacks goes for a lot

    Will Jacks back into the attack but no difference to the match situation. 21 runs in the over and there is no stopping Travis Head. Add 2 more sixes to his tally and this is pure destruction at the moment.

    SRH 97/0 after 7 overs

  • 19:56 (IST)

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: Fifty for Head

    No respite for RCB bowlers as Yash Dayal also ended up conceding 20 runs in one over. Fifty for Travis Head in only 20 balls and RCB have no clue about what to do right now. This is getting worse for them with every ball.

    SRH 76/0 after 6 overs

  • 19:49 (IST)

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: SRH dealing in sixes

    New bowler but same result. Travis Head had no problems in facing Lockie Ferguson and he ended up slamming for two consecutive sixes. Looks like the team changes are not yielding any results for the home side.

    SRH 56/0 after 5 overs

  • 19:47 (IST)

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: Express pace

    Time for Lockie Ferguson. This is the first match for the fast bowler in RCB colours and he adds a slightly different flavour to their bowling attack which has struggled massively in this year’s IPL. Can he be the game changer for RCB?

    SRG 44/0 after 4.2 overs

  • 19:43 (IST)

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: More misery

    The Will Jacks gamble has completely failed in this match. The SRH batters are not taking big risks against the spinner and he has ended leaking cheap runs against Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma.

    SRH 36/0 after 3.1 overs

  • 19:40 (IST)

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: 20 runs in one over

    Recee Topley has conceded 20 runs in his first over! Absolute carnage from Abhishek Sharma and Travis Head. 1, 4, 6, 2, 1, 6 – This is the perfect start for SRH. Can RCB fight back?

    SRH 28/0 after 2 overs

  • 19:34 (IST)

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: A positive start

    A tidy over from Will Jacks but nothing dangerous. He stuck to a conventional line and length but it was not enough to bother Abhishek Sharma. A boundary for the left-hander and an overall positive start for the batting side.

    SRH 7/0 after 1 over

  • 19:30 (IST)

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: Match time

    Abhishek Sharma and Travis Head to begin proceedings for SRH and a surprise from RCB! Will Jacks to bowl the first over and this can be interesting.

  • 19:18 (IST)

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: Big decision

    The decision to drop big names like Mohammed Siraj and Glenn Maxwell was certainly not easy for RCB. But it provides them with an opportunity to understand what changes they can make to their strategies and with half of the tournament still remaining, a resurgence needs to start soon.

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: Here’s what Will Jacks said before the match

    We know we haven’t quite hit the mark, we lost games where we should have done better and had a better chance of winning. We have to reset, still have 8 games and qualification is still in our hands. It’s about starting fresh, winning tonight and gaining some momentum from that. You don’t need to put that added pressure on yourself. I have been amazed by the support here in Bengaluru. Hopefully we can use the crowd support tonight. Need to start well with the bat and ball, need to make the powerplay count.

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: Pitch report

    “57m and 64m square boundaries respectively, 69m straight down the ground. Quite a bit of live green grass on it but it’s patchy. Some balls will zip through, some balls will skid through, particularly with the new ball. This ground has had more spin than any other venue this season. This particular surface is a quite dry and it’s cracking as well. The spinners will get consistent spin as the game goes on. Team batting second has an advantage here,” reckons Aaron Finch.

  • 18:34 (IST)

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: Dinesh Karthik eyes big feat

    The match against Sunrisers Hyderabad is going to be a special one for RCB wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik will aim to achieve a big T20 feat. Karthik needs 38 runs to complete 6000 T20 runs in India.

  • 17:55 (IST)

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: RCB’s weak bowling

    The Bengaluru bowlers have been largely unidimensional in their approach allowing batters to tackle them with ease and the match against Mumbai Indians offers a case study. For once, the RCB batters fired collectively to take them to 196, but MI hunted down the target in just 15.3 overs at the Wankhede Stadium as the visiting bowlers were quite magnanimous in offering freebies.

    RCB vs SRH Live Score: RCB eye redemption

    The Royal Challengers have players of repute and elite coaches with lofty pedigree but none of their plans have worked so far, evidenced by the team’s 10th place in the standings with a solitary win from six matches. The RCB’s trundling run in this IPL is directly linked to their bowlers’ ineffectiveness. They showed a distinct lack of willingness to adapt and upskill on conditions that needed a different thinking.
