The Punjab Kings were blown away for 181 in response and RCB thus won the match by 60 runs.

Kohli fell in the 18th over, thus missing out on a 100th century across formats. Rajat Patidar smashed 55 in 23 balls and shared a 76-run stand with Kohli that came in 32 balls for the third wicket. Rain caused a brief interruption right after he fell after which Kohli put up a stand of 92 runs off just 46 balls with Cameron Green, who scored 46 in 27 balls. 

The Punjab Kings won the toss and chose to bowl first as they look for a win in Dharamsala. Sam Curran continues to lead the side, with Shikhar Dhawan still out injured. In the high-stakes clash between Royal Challengers Bengaluru and PBKS, both teams find themselves in a battle for survival in the Indian Premier League (IPL) as they vie for a spot in the playoffs. RCB, once plagued by a dismal start to the season, have staged a remarkable comeback, securing three consecutive victories and injecting renewed vigour into their campaign. Buoyed by this winning streak, they sit at the seventh position on the points table with eight points from 11 games, clinging onto hopes of playoff qualification.

Led by the ever-reliable Virat Kohli at the top and bolstered by a rejuvenated skipper, Faf du Plessis, who recently showcased his batting prowess with a formidable innings, RCB's batting lineup appears formidable. Additionally, the emergence of promising talents like Will Jacks and Cameron Green has added depth and dynamism to their middle order. 

With their bowling unit, spearheaded by the impressive Mohammed Siraj, hitting its stride, RCB enters the contest brimming with confidence and eager to continue their winning streak.

On the other hand, PBKS find themselves in a similar predicament, occupying the eighth spot on the points table with the same number of points as RCB. Despite glimpses of brilliance, inconsistency has plagued their campaign, epitomized by a recent batting collapse against Chennai Super Kings. PBKS, known for their unpredictability, have showcased their potential with notable away victories but have struggled to replicate the same success on home turf. 

As they gear up to face RCB, PBKS will be aiming to harness their collective strength and rally towards a much-needed victory to keep their playoff aspirations alive. With both teams aware of the significance of this fixture, the stage is set for a compelling showdown.

IPL 2024, PBKS vs RCB Live Score, Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: “That was a good game. We have scored 200-plus in the last 5-6 games. We have had good conversations, we were making the same mistakes over and over again. Needed aggression with the bat. We just spoke about taking wickets. We have 6-7 options in the bowling department. You need some form in your side. With a bit of luck is also required. We had a few guys looking for wickets and runs at the start of the tournament. The boys have shown character to turn it around. Everyone has chipped in with runs and the bowlers are taking wickets. For us it's important to focus on ourselves.We want to stick to the style of play that we want to do, if we do that it'll prove we are a really good team.”

IPL 2024, PBKS vs RCB Live Score, Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: No hat-trick for Siraj but the last wicket falls off the last ball of that over of his. It is a romp for RCB, their fourth consecutive win now and with this they keep their still extremely faint chances of making it to the playoffs. They have peaked at the end of the league stage alright but were just too bad before that for this period to have the kind of effect that it normally does for IPL teams. Punjab Kings, meanwhile, are knocked out now thanks to the hit that their NRR has take

He gets a top edge off the second ball of the ninth from Green, it flies behind the wicketkeeper for a four.

May 9, 2024 10:34 PM IST

IPL 2024, PBKS vs RCB Live Score, Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: OUT! Incredible catch by Du Plessis!

IPL 2024, PBKS vs RCB Live Score, Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: PBKS would've dropped that. He pre-empts Bairstow's shot fifth ball and starts to run back, sure enough the ball does travel that way off the bat and Du Plessis dives full stretch to complete it. Extraordinary stuff from the RCB captain.

IPL 2024, PBKS vs RCB Live Score, Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: Well the gauntlet has been thrown, PBKS will have to somehow chase down 242 runs if they want to stay in the race for the playoffs. Well that was some innings from RCB, powered chiefly by a marauding Virat Kohli. He scored 92 at a strike rate of 196.74, as good a T20 innings as you would every hope to see, helped by the fact that he was dropped twice of course. But he has shown why it is a cardinal sin to give him chances, regardless of the format. Vidyuth Kaveerappa has been subbed out by PBKS. He was brilliant on debut with the new ball and would've had much more than the two wickets against his name had it not been for his teammates woeful display in the field today.

IPL 2024, PBKS vs RCB Live Score, Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: Kohli's wicket might in fact work in RCB's favour as he has been replaced by Dinesh Karthik for the last two overs, exactly the time when he is most effective. DK ends the 18th with a six, which makes it 17 overs and a wicket off it. DK on six off two, Green on 37 off 22.

IPL 2024, PBKS vs RCB Live Score, Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: OUT! KOHLI MISSES OUT ON A CENTURY!

IPL 2024, PBKS vs RCB Live Score, Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: Arshdeep gets the big wicket and so no century for Virat Kohli today. Punjab finally take a catch off him but is it too late already? Kohli was dropped on zero, then on 10 and finally he is caught at 92. This would've been his 100th century in all formats. He hits the fourth ball of the 18th straight into the hands of the fielder at extra cover, who was Rossouw, the man who gave him that reprieve on 11 runs.

May 9, 2024 9:23 PM IST

IPL 2024, PBKS vs RCB Live Score, Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: 21 runs in the 16th over!

IPL 2024, PBKS vs RCB Live Score, Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: The PBKS captain has been taken to the cleaners by Kohli and Green. Green gets off strike first ball and then Kohli pulls the second one miles up in the air, soaring into the stands beyond cow corner. Curran then fires two deliveries wide and Kohli gets off strike the next ball. Green then sends the fourth ball over the bowler's head for a four. Single again and the Kohli ends the over by clubbing the ball over the bowler's head for yet another six. Kohli is on 80 off 41, Green on 25 off 18, Curran's figures read 1/50 in 3 overs!

IPL 2024, PBKS vs RCB Live Score, Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: Into the last five overs now 

IPL 2024, PBKS vs RCB Live Score, Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: Well we have had a rain break of over half an hour but such is the nature of the IPL, the umpires simply have to call for a second timeout regardless of how much that extends the match. Kohli is sitting on 67 off 38, having smashed the fifth ball from Livingstone's third over in the 15th over the leg side for yet another six. Green on 19 off 15. This is looking very ominous indeed from RCB.

Kohli!" as the great man flicks Livingstone's fifth delivery through the midwicket region for a boundary. He follows that with a slog sweep over midwicket for another four. Kohli is on 56 off 33 at the end of that over, Green on 10 off eight.

IPL 2024, PBKS vs RCB Live Score, Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: Here is the rain and here are the covers! We have a pause in play

IPL 2024, PBKS vs RCB Live Score, Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: It has been drizzling for much of the last two overs and finally it has become too much for the umpires. That partnership between Kohli and Patidar brought in 76 runs in 32 balls. As many as five catches dropped by PBKS, four off the bowling of debutant Kaverappa, one by wicketkeeper Bairstow off Rahul Chahar. Not many teams in the world that can bounce back from a sloppy show like that in the field, especially with Kohli looking as good as he has today.

IPL 2024, PBKS vs RCB Live Score, Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: And Kaverappa's spell today ends on 2/36, he should've had at least four wickets and those dropped catches could cost PBKS the match today. Rahul Chahar bowls the first over of spin in the eighth after that and Patidar greets him with two sixes off the first two balls. Two dot balls and then a third six over wide long off. He moves to 39 off 17 balls, Kohli on 30 off 17.

IPL 2024, PBKS vs RCB Live Score, Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: 11 runs and some rotten luck for Kaverappa in the first over!

IPL 2024, PBKS vs RCB Live Score, Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: Kaverappa given a rude welcome to the IPL. Two dot balls to Kohli to start out with and then Kaverappa sends in a full ball outside off. That induces a fall stroke from Kohli and the ball goes high up in the air. Ashutosh runs from cover point, it is a difficult catch and he misjudges it as well. Catch dropped, life given to Kohli. The batters run three and then Du Plessis finishes the over with consecutive fours. Arshdeep to bowl the second.
