  • 'Spiderman' AB de Villiers takes miraculous catch

The capacity crowd at Chinnaswamy found it voice when Moeen, promoted to No. 4, exploded in a frenzy of six-hitting, with Basil Thampi being the victim.

Just 48 hours after being left out of England's squad for their first Test against Pakistan, Moeen Ali responded in style by letting the bat do the talking. Two wickets in a short span.

However, they will be knocked out if they lose to the Daredevils. Ali's innings was laced with two boundaries and six hits over the fence. Kaul got the better of Mandeep on the very first ball of the 18th over, Dhawan took the catch this time. He executed the pull shot and slog sweeps well; he hit four sixes over midwicket and deposited one into the stands at square-leg. A misfield led to a boundary in the next ball. As the runs flowed, the Kiwi unfurling shot after delightful shot, RCB was anxious. Bangalore's fortunes have changed ever since the inclusion of Tim Southee and the bowling attack mentored by Ashish Nehra is finally executing their plans. Another chance came for a catch in the next ball but Sandeep dropped it, singles came after that but a boundary came off the last ball.

Meanwhile, the Hyderabad captain slammed his half-century off 28 balls, helping his side inch closer to the target.

# Williamson: I think if we are honest, we missed the trick a little bit with the ball.

Umesh Yadav returned for the 7th over, just four singles came off the over.

In the 8th overs of the SRH innings, de Villiers pulled off the stunner to dismiss Alex Hales off Moeen Ali.

Manish Pandey replaced Hales.

That SRH still got to 91 for 2 at the halfway mark was mainly due to Williamson's ability to find the gaps with relative ease.

Showing his presence of mind near the boundary, ABD leapt at the ball and stuck it up his right hand and even managed to land back within the ropes. Apart from Dhawan and Williamson, Yusuf Pathan (186), Manish Pandey (189) and Shakib-Al-Hasan (166) have also chipped in at crunch situations for SRH. The run rate was 10.13 per over. When there was width on offer, he did not hesitate in throwing his bat at the ball. If they lose their match against SRH then they need to rely on the results of other matches and in that case, if either RCB or MI, win their last encounter then KKR will be out of the tournament as both RCB and MI are certain to have a better NRR than KKR if they both win. The third ball went for a single, RCB was closer to victory now. With 55 needed in the last four overs, it was down to the experience of Southee, who kept Bangalore ahead in the game by conceding only 21 runs in two overs at the death.

Moeen Ali pitched in with 65 runs to help Bangalore reach 6-218, overpowering Kane Williamson's 81 off 42 balls for Hyderabad. For more action, Stay Tuned.
