KKR needs 27 runs in 30 balls. Do the 23 of 29, Dinesh Karthik has just hit a limit. It’s nicely cut, he slaps it over an additional cover for four. Dot and four singles follow, good over for Kolkata.
Chahal is over now. Starts with a point and then has a wicket! Nitish Rana seemed to be getting a little impatient, and he tries a slog, but doesn’t get nearly enough strength in the end, and it’s a pretty easy catch for de Villiers at Long-On. That wasn’t necessary from Rana, and no, for no reason, there is a little pressure on KKR. Still, they should win this easily. There are single and two points, Karthik looks a bit shaky. He takes a single from the last ball, just two runs from the over. Chahal ends with numbers from 4-0-16-2. Strategic timeout signals.
OFF! Rana tries to end the chase quickly and ends up with de Villiers! Nitish Rana c de Villiers b Chahal 23 (25 balls)
Harshal replaces Christian, and that’s probably the best. Two points and a couple of singles in the first four balls. Narine and Rana are probably just tired of playing Harshal, there is no need to try anything too dangerous right now. Oh, a strange ricochet from Rana there, he tried to pull, but it hit his bat in the back and fell back right next to him. That could have gone anywhere. Single to end the over, only three of them.
Chahal’s third run, he has to come up with something special quickly, because Sunil Narine has completely turned this game on its head. Two singles to start with. Narine is on strike, will he try to hit some maximums here? No, that’s a smart push, just one. Three more singles to end the over and six of them. At the moment this is more than good enough for KKR, as the required run rate has dropped well below 6 thanks to Narine, who went nuts last year.
Dan Christian for bowling, a dot and a single to kick off. Sunil Narine is on strike now, he’s out here to play a few punches and keep the game from getting too close. AND HE ONLY DOES THAT! He slaps back to back to back, what a way to introduce yourself with the bat! The first is pulled behind the square, the second is hammered over the square leg, and the third is one-handed and hit directly on the floor. There was a wide before and after the third six and a single from the last ball, which made Christian a pretty terrible over, taking 22 runs.
OUT! Rana tries to end the chase quickly and ends up with de Villiers! Nitish Rana c de Villiers b Chahal 23 (25 balls)
OFF! The threat goes, Venkatesh Iyer is sent back! Venkatesh Iyer c Bharat b Patel 26 (30 balls)
OFF! A great googly from Yuzvendra Chahal buzzles Rahul Tripathi! Rahul Tripathi lbw b Chahal 6 (5 balls)
OFF! Shubman Gill tries to hammer it into the ground for a six, but it’s a wrong shot and it goes very high but not too far. Shubman Gill c de Villiers b Patel 29 (18 balls)
Ferguson leaves for a York but ends up bowling a full throw. Shahbaz swings his bat and blows it up. But he doesn’t manage to reach the distance when Mavi makes the catch.
After Kohli and ABD, Narine removes Maxwell. The timing of a shot was torture on this stretch and Maxwell sweeps the short third man.
Narine picks up another large wicket. ABD loses its stumps after being hit by a flicker. It was slowly in the air, in and out, and went through the gap between the club and the pad.
Narine lets the ball turn from the center to Kohli. The RCB batter attempted a slog sweep, but the ball went under the bat to break the stump.
Bharat sets out to negotiate the long boundary rope. It was a caramel ball thrown up and Bharat couldn’t get the power behind his punch.
Chopped up! Padikkal throws his racket on the wide outside of the ball, but lands with the inside edge on the stump.
IPL 2021, Eliminator 1 live updates: Chahal’s last one is now over. Starts with a point and then has a wicket! Nitish Rana seemed to be getting a little impatient, and he tries a slog, but doesn’t get nearly enough strength in the end, and it’s a pretty easy catch for de Villiers at Long-On. That wasn’t necessary from Rana, and no, for no reason, there is a little pressure on KKR. Still, they should win this easily. There are single and two points, Karthik looks a bit shaky. He takes a single from the last ball, just two runs from the over. Chahal ends with numbers from 4-0-16-2. Strategic timeout signals.
Preview: Maxwell cuts the pull shot for a single inwards onto the pads. Second ball, Narine dismisses Kohli. Get the slower ball to spin off center, hit the bat, and break the stumps. AB de Villiers comes into play. Two singles rallied in front of a LBW appeal against ABD with the ball spinning into him, but the impact was gone on the outside. The last ball is swept backwards for a four.
Both teams look strong on paper and go into the crucial game after winning their previous games. While RCB won a last ball thriller against Delhi Capitals, KKR secured a big win against Rajasthan Royals.
RCB qualified for the playoffs and finished third with 18 points out of nine wins. KKR didn’t have the best start to the tournament in India but turned their luck in the United Arab Emirates in the second half. They won seven out of 14 games and finished ahead of defending champions Mumbai Indians thanks to a better net run rate.
Kolkata’s biggest asset is the bowlers. Greats like Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine were impressive with their spells, while Lockie Ferguson was also in good shape. Shivam Mavi also picked up four wickets in KKR’s last game and considering they are back at Sharjah, expect Morgan to name an unchanged team. With the addition of Shakib Al Hasan to the XI, KKR looked like a balanced team.

Virat Kohli’s trust in KS Bharat paid off when the wicketkeeper batsman played blinders to claim victory against Delhi Capitals. He went undefeated at 78, hitting a six from the final ball to get his team over the line.
Glenn Maxwell is another constant performer with the bat, while players like Yuzvendra Chahal and Harshal Patel are key players in the Bowling department.
The game between RCB and KKR starts at 7.30pm IST. The throw will take place at 7 p.m. IST.
The game will be broadcast on the Star Sports Network. Live streaming of the game will also be available on Disney Hotstar. You can also check for live updates and individual comments on Firstpost.com.
