SIX! Yuzvendra Chahal to Nicholas Pooran. Leg spinner full toss, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Into the skies...and over long-on! There's the winning runs! Pooran does it and does so in style! Pooran dances down the track and lofts it over long-on for a maximum. Punjab wins the nailbiter in the very last ball. It was a comfortable victory for the Kings XI even though they pushed it to the very end. Kings XI win by 8 wickets. Skipper KL Rahul would be relieved and top-scored with 61 , well accompanied by Agarwal with 45 and Gayle with 53. It was a pleasure to watch Gayle turn the clock back to his younger days and put on an explosive show with the bat. For RCB, Chahal picked up one wicket but their bowling attack did not do well enough to restrict them within the total. KL Rahul has been adjudged as the man of the match for his excellent performance with the bat. Join us for the next match played between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders. Live from Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. Until then, adios!

OUT! Run Out. Yuzvendra Chahal to Lokesh Rahul. Leg spinner back of a length, middle stump backing away driving, to cover, fielded by Padikkal, by de Villiers. A bit of an anti-climax. A wicket just before the home run. Run Out!! Goodness, gracious! What happened there? Hare-brained running has cost Punjab a wicket here, that too of experienced Gayle. He fails to make it in time for the quick single and he's a goner. Punjab need 1 form 1 ball. Can they win it or will this lead to a superover?

Nudges it to the offside and reaches his 29th IPL Fifty in his very first match of the season. He points to his bat and shows who's Boss. You don't find many better ways of getting to fifties.

OUT! Caught. Mohammed Shami to Virat Kohli. Off cutter short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, Gloved in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Rahul. Gloves it to KL! It's getting bad to worse for RCB. Bouncer from Shami. Kohli is a bit early to the shot and gloves it. KL dives to his right and pulls off a blinder of a catch. It's the big fish that departs. King Kohli falls a couple runs short of his Fifty. Another big wicket for Shami who looks happy and there's no reason not to be.

W
OUT! Caught. Mohammed Shami to AB de Villiers. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to extra cover, by Hooda. Its all falling apart for Bangalore. ABD falls by the sword now. A soft dismissal! Good line and length from Shami. ABD looks to clear the off-side ring but finds Hooda at extra cover. Mohammed Shami gets his first wicket.

OUT! Caught. Chris Jordan to Shivam Dube. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to short fine leg, by Rahul. Top edge and gone! Jordan brings an end to Dube's pyrotechnics. Jordan bangs it in short. Dube goes for an ambitious pull but could only manage to get a top edge. In the air for miles....and taken by KL! Dube departs for 23.

OUT! Caught. Murugan Ashwin to Washington Sundar. Googly length ball, to leg on the front foot slog sweeping, top edge in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Jordan. Googly gone wrong! Second wicket for Ashwin and he is proving to be a handful. Sunder looks to go big but gets deceived by the turn. Holes out at long-on! Jordan has his eyes on the ball and swallows it. Sunder walks back for 13.

OUT! Bowled. Murugan Ashwin to Aaron Finch. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump on the back foot defending, missed to. Spinning this right through the gate! Previous delivery was too close for comfort, tries to defend this time around. No dice. RCB are in early trouble with the openers back in the hut.

W
OUT! Caught. Arshdeep Singh to Devdutt Padikkal. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, mis-timed to cover, by Pooran. Perfect delivery by Arshdeep Singh in the channel outside off, back of a length ball with not much space offered and the batsman pokes at it. A sitter for Pooran at cover. That is disheartening. A distraught Devdutt Padikkal is walking off for 18.

OUT! Bowled. Yuzvendra Chahal to Mayank Agarwal. Leg spinner length ball, down leg side on the front foot Slog, missed to. Chahal has the last laugh! The leggie crashes Mayank's party. You-miss-I-hit stuff. Agarwal looks to go big and he has decided to leave his stumps exposed in a bid to clear the leg-side ring. Mayank falls after a fine inning of 45.
