6 May 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Kumar to Dilshan, no run, gives him some width outside off stump, Dilshan goes hard at it and punches without timing to mid off


Kumar to Dilshan, FOUR, more width, and short in length too, Dilshan likes it, stands in the crease, and cuts hard over point, thank you very much

Royal Challengers Bangalore 9/0   TM Dilshan 4* (2b 1x4)

Kumar to Dilshan, no run, no matter what the track is doing, Dilshan knows no lower gear, he stands in the crease and tries to play his swat-drive, gets an inside edge as this one bounces high


Kumar to Dilshan, FOUR, there is no one at deep square leg, there is no one at fine leg, Dilshan gets a length ball on leg stump, and is happy to flick it away in a flash, the man from deep midwicket runs in a mile and puts in the dive, in vain as he touches the rope


Kumar to Dilshan, no run, reverts to the line outside off stump, Dilshan sticks to swat-driving, more bounce again, and Dilshan is beaten

Royal Challengers Bangalore 17/0   TM Dilshan 8* (5b 2x4)

Harris to Dilshan, FOUR, Dilshan is not getting left behind, he wants some of the action too,. gets a short ball and swivels furiously for the pull, Punjab persist to having no one in the region of deep square leg, dilshan get four


Harris to Dilshan, FOUR, beautiful drive, why does he bother with those forcing shots when he can do this, pitched up and he hangs the bat out, ball hits middle and disappears in the gap between cover and point


Harris to Dilshan, no run, creamed, absolutely creamed off the front foot, but straight to extra cover

Royal Challengers Bangalore 38/0   TM Dilshan 16* (8b 4x4)

McLaren to Dilshan, OUT, Dilshan departs, he tried to pick a length ball over midwicket, is not in control of the shot as bat turns in the hands, the ball goes a mile to get a view of the Bangalore skyline and comes down to find PK waiting, he takes it calmly

TM Dilshan c Kumar b McLaren 16 (23m 9b 4x4 0x6) SR: 177.77

Royal Challengers Bangalore 43/1   TM Dilshan 16 (9b 4x4)
