Kohli: Very happy to get on the board. First home game is very crucial always. We were decent in the first game and we improved on it. We knew the new ball will come on nicely. Then the bowlers showed composure. Umesh took three wickets and blocked the momentum. Credit to Umesh, Washington, Woakes, and Khejroliya. Once you have five bowlers, you can pick and choose later. We wanted to give them more responsibility. I think 170 would have been par, the pitch is slightly better than last year. We lost two wickets in two balls in the last two games. We need to string partnerships and losing quick wickets puts you behind the eight ball.

11.45pm Ashwin: I am proud of the way the boys fought. We were probably 20-30 runs short. We go down, we go down like this. The pressure is on RCB, they have the big players. Captaincy is good and I am enjoying it. I can't ask for anything more from the boys. There was a lot of dew but good bowlers are always good bowlers.

AB: I was so keen to be not out and win it. I am sorry for it. I love getting not outs and guiding a team to a win. I was getting frustrated but got some hits in the end. The wicket was a little bit on the slower side. From our side, Washington and Chahal bowled well. Yadav's strikes was a pivotal moment. No place like this. Special to play the Chinnaswamy. We did not have a good season last year and we are going to make up for it this year.

11.40pm Kings XI made early inroads in the chase with Axar dismissing McCullum and Mujeeb storming through the gate of Kohli. De Kock then dominated a 54-run stand with de Villiers before running past a slider from Ashwin. De Villiers overcame a scratchy start to hit a flurry of boundaries in the end overs. He fell with his side needing 10 off 11 balls and three balls later, Mandeep was run out but Sundar and Woakes sealed the deal for RCB.

19.3MM Sharma to Washington Sundar, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, pitched up and outside off, Sundar lays into a drive and carts it away to the cover boundary to snap RCB's five-match losing streak at home.

Woakes goes up to Sundar and has a word with the batsman

19.2MM Sharma to Washington Sundar, No run, slower ball, floats away outside off, 107.4ks, foxes Sundar.
19.1MM Sharma to Washington Sundar, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, dug in short and outside off, Sundar leaps and ramps it away to the third man boundary to level the scores. Third man isn't fine enough to cut it off.
