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?

SIX! Mohammed Shami to Chris Morris. Off cutter full toss, off stump moves in front flick, well timed in the air under control over deep square leg for 6 runs. Oh that is a six and a half! Shami continues to be tonked all over the park! Misses his line and length, all hands on this one! 24 from the final over. Royal Challengers Bangalore have managed to make 171 for the loss of 6 wickets after 20 overs. Virat Kohli top-scored with 48 in his 200th IPL match for RCB. For Punjab, Mohammed Shami and Murugan Ashwin picked up two wickets each. Arshdeep Singh and Chris Jordan picked up a wicket each. Bringing ABD down the order did not turn out as they would have expected but the explosive final two overs has helped them post a decent target of 172. Can Punjab chase this down with ease or will RCB's bowlers defend it? Let's wait and watch.

Absolutely nothing wrong with the delivery. Morris comes up with a cheeky shot and finds the fine leg ropes for four. A boundary to start the final over. RCB would accept any possible runs they could get at this point.

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.

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!

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?
