Brendon McCullum, Aaron Finch, Raina and Dinesh Karthik provided the solid platform but lower-middle order failed to step up to the pressure.On the other hand, last year’s runners-up Bangalore, who have some quality international players are struggling in this edition.They have a strong batting line-up but failed to find the right combination. Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli and Shane Watson have stood up to their reputation but not in unison.The bowling department of Bangalore, which includes Tymal Mills and Samuel Badree, fired in some crucial matches but all players have to perform in unison to do well in the tournament.Where to watch online?The match will be streamed online on Hotstar.Which channel has the TV rights in India?The match will be broadcast live on TV by Sony Pictures Network (Sony Max, Sony Six, Sony Six HD, Sony ESPN, Sony ESPN HD.Where to follow match updates online?advertisementFor best and timely updates follow http://indiatoday.intoday.in/ipl2017.The match coverage begins at 18.30 IST.last_img
