  Royal Challengers Bangalore innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal CH Gayle c Botha b Parnell 23 19 14 2 2 164.28
3.4 Botha takes a superb catch, Gayle had made his mind up and went through with his intended slap over mid-on despite the change in pace, was the slower one, it seemed he had enough on it to clear mid-on but Botha kept his eyes on it all through and took it over his head, even though he lost his balance and tumbled, he ensured he held on. Excellent take, and the Warriors have seen off a major threat. He took it with one hand, his right one and held on. 34/2
View dismissal MA Agarwal c Ingram b Tsotsobe 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
0.4 tame dismissal, Agarawalk goes, early setback for the hosts, back of a length on middle and Agarwal tries to whip that square, is probably into the shot a touch early and ends up getting a leading edge to extra cover, simple catch 1/1
View dismissal V Kohli c Parnell b Theron 34 42 29 4 0 117.24
10.3 nicely pulled but straight into the hands of deep square leg where Parnell makes no mistake, short and the shot was on but he found the fielder after playing a near-perfect pull, he's disappointed 86/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Tsotsobe b Botha 31 37 25 1 2 124.00
13.2 caught by Tsotso at long leg this time, Botha held it back and AB had chosen to pull that over square leg but ended up getting a top edge and Tsotso, who's had a bad day with the ball, made no mistake 113/4
View dismissal SS Tiwary c Kreusch b Boje 28 19 15 2 2 186.66
15.5 Tiwary goes, change of pace from Boje who fires it quick outside off and Tiwary drags it from a good distance outside off straight to long-on 130/5
View dismissal M Kaif c Parnell b Theron 26 20 20 1 2 130.00
18.4 It seemed that would go the distance but it wasn't struck as well as I initially thought, heaves that from the off stump straight to deep square leg, Bangalore slipping up a hint at the death 160/7
View dismissal DL Vettori* c Prince b Theron 8 9 6 1 0 133.33
18.1 Vettori times that superbly and finds Ashwell Prince stationed perfectly at deep midwicket, good length on middle and off and he shuffled across to clip that soundly but only to find the fielder 158/6
View dismissal A Mithun c Tsotsobe b Theron 4 3 3 1 0 133.33
18.6 Mithun holes out this time, pitched up on the off and he strikes it straight to Tsotso at long-off, three in an over for Theron 164/8

  Warriors innings (target: 173 runs from 20 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal JT Smuts c Kohli b Aravind 12 21 14 0 1 85.71
5.1 Excellent catch from Kohli, the pressure got to Smuts after the openers were bogged down for a bit, came down the track and that was bowled full outside off, was aiming for long-off but miscued it over cover and point and Kohli, running back, judged it to perfection, diving at the right time to his left and holding on 38/1
View dismissal AG Prince c Nannes b Mithun 74 82 55 6 3 134.54
18.2 Prince goes! Slightly short and he was trying to have that over the leg-side field, got the top edge and Nannes made no mistake at extra cover. Was a skier but he judged it well. 155/5
View dismissal CA Ingram c Mithun b Vettori 15 10 8 2 1 187.50
7.3 Mithun makes amends, takes a well-judged catch at deep square leg this time and the pressure is on the Warriors, swept hard and swept high but not well enough to clear the ropes, Mithun runs a few yards to his right and takes it well, some relief for him 57/2
View dismissal MV Boucher lbw b Syed Mohammad 1 5 3 0 0 33.33
8.4 trapped in front, looked pretty adjacent, round the wicket and angled in towards middle and leg, Boucher leant forward and tried to sweep that square, missed, it appeared to hold its line and heading towards the stumps, Dharmasena had no doubt 59/3
View dismissal JP Kreusch c Aravind b Vettori 6 12 10 0 0 60.00
11.5 Bangalore strike another blow, desperation from Kreusch, that was bowled flat on the off, he came down the track and tried to dispatch it over long-on, had to reach for it and ended up mistiming it, Aravind made good ground coming forward and clasped it easily 82/4
View dismissal J Botha* c Kohli b Aravind 42 37 24 2 3 175.00
19.3 caught at long-on, three dots in a row, slower one bowled full outside off and he strikes it well but finds Kohli at long-on, he didn't have to move much and Botha has to go 166/7
View dismissal CA Thyssen c †de Villiers b Mithun 4 2 2 1 0 200.00
18.5 he has to go now! Feathers it to de Villiers, was a shortish delivery outside off and he tried to pull that over midwicket, one would think the shot was on but he ended up nicking it to the keeper, pressure back on Botha now thanks to those two wickets and two dot deliveries 160/6
