Hello and welcome to Sportstar’s live coverage of the IPL 2021 match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals in Ahmedabad.
RCB 25/0 in 3 Overs: Ishant continues. Kohli takes a single and gets Padikkal back on strike. The latter nearly holes out but Axar Patel grasses a tough chance… Padikkal gets a couple in the end. He follows it up with a pull shot for four. He then takes a single to point. Kohli ends the over with a risky single.
RCB 16/0 in 2 Overs: Rabada to share the new ball. Starts with a dot. FOUR! Not much wrong with the ball – got it to tail into the left-hander and Padikkal whips it to backward square for four. Rabada working up good pace – that fourth ball was north of 145 kmph. SHOT! Kohli’s first scoring shot is a bottom-handed flick through deep mid-wicket for four.
RCB 6/0 in 1 Over: Kohli and Padikkal are out in the middle. Ishant Sharma, playing his first match of IPL 2021, will start the proceedings. Kohli off the mark with a single first ball. Slip remains for Padikkal who plays and misses the first ball. Make that two in two. Sharma in good rhythm already. SHOT! Padikkal’s off and running with a fabulous strike through off-side for four. A single to end the over. Six from it.
TOSS UPDATE: Rishabh Pant has won the toss and Delhi will bowl.
