Despite losing Chris Lynn early, Narine kept playing his shits as he toyed with the RCB bowling attack.

The interesting episode of the game, the turning point, arrived in the 15th over of Royal Challengers Bangalore's innings. While Sunil Narine's blitzkrieg got them off to a great start in the powerplay overs, KKR needed the calm head of their skipper Dinesh Karthik to win them the game after they lost wickets late in the chase.

Kolkata's innings, in contrast, got off to a flyer as Sunil Narine, the West Indies worldwide, smashed a 17-ball fifty. New Zealand all-rounders Corey Anderson, Colin de Grandhomme and bowler Tim Southee join former worldwide superstar Brendon McCullum on the roster.

Chris Woakes, albeit expensive, impressed with three wickets and Umesh Yadav took two but Kolkata still reached the target in the penultimate over. He scored 34 off 25 balls and four boundaries in a sensible knock. Last season, RCB endured a nightmare at Eden Gardens as they got dismissed for 49 - the lowest by any team in the history of the IPL - in reply to KKR's 131. You can watch video highlights of KKR vs RCB here. With new and improved upgrades in the side like McCullum, de Kock, Chris Woakes and Umesh Yadav, to go with the retained core of Kohli, de Villiers, Chahal and Sarfaraz Khan, RCB will look to get off on a winning note. KKR have 2 matches in the next 3, so it's wise to load up on them. Kolkata has won the toss and now, they will bowl first to Bangalore.

IPL 2018 Live Cricket Score KKR vs RCB Live Streaming: Virat Kohli will lead RCB. He accounted for de Villiers and Kohli's wickets on consecutive balls. They had a partnership of 38 runs in 26 balls. In the spin department young Washington Sundar is valuable addition along with Yuzvendra Chahal forming a dynamic spin combination. As many as 16 runs were leaked in the final over by Karnataka pacer Vinay Kumar who had a forgettable comeback for KKR.

De Villiers survived a Decision Review System in the 12th over when the umpire gave him caught behind but reviews showed the ball missing the bat.

Narine punishes RCB - again: Virat Kohli must get sick of watching Sunil Narine at the crease, with the Trinadian blasting a vital 50 from just 19 balls to give Kolkata the ideal platform to launch from. He's a fantastic enabler for Kohli, and has been on fire in the KKR practice matches.
