Royal Challengers Bangalore won by 85 runs
6 May 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Harris to Gayle, no run, now Harris gets one to zip away sharply, pitches back of a length outside leg and rushes across Gayle outside off, he pulled back his bat a bit in the end


Harris to Gayle, no run, Gayle abandons niceties like defence and charges down the track, Harris angles this one away, and Gayle is beaten, swinging inside the line


Harris to Gayle, no run, and again, this time he backed away outside leg and came down the track as well, missed with the big swing, and the ball went over the stumps


Harris to Gayle, no run, there is lots of lateral movement on this pitch, again Gayle is beaten by one that pitches around middle and leg, and zooms away from Gayle, leaving him looking befuddled


Harris to Gayle, no run, Gayle persists with the attempts at tonking the ball out of sight, only issue is, he can't connect at the moment as he rushes down the track again


Harris to Gayle, 3 leg byes, can't put bat to ball, but there are other ways to get runs, like getting the ball off your pads behind square leg

Royal Challengers Bangalore 12/0   RJ Harris 1-1-0-0

Harris to Gayle, SIX, clobber! finally, after eons, Gayle gets one in his slot, full, around off stump, Gayle gets front leg out of the way, and hammers it over long off, there is a man there, he is just closer to the action, can't do anything else


Harris to Gayle, SIX, bigger, this time he walks across the stumps, stands with legs spread apart, and mows a length ball over wide long on


Harris to Gayle, 1 run, the two sixes seem to have rattled Punjab, Gayle picks up a single off a misfield around square leg


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   RJ Harris 2-1-21-0

Harris to Tiwary, 1 run, Tiwary goes for a forcing pull to a ball that is not quite short, and picks up a single to deep midwicket


Harris to de Villiers, FOUR, AB goes for the old-fashioned hoick from the crease, and gets a top edge that flies over Gilchrist, when nothing goes your away, abandon all hope


Harris to de Villiers, FOUR, length ball and AB takes toll, slamming it over the bowler's head and in to the straight boundary


Harris to de Villiers, 1 run, belts the cover drive off the middle of the bat, but will get only a single as there is sweeper cover in place, will that go down in history as the fastest drive to reach the man on the boundary?


Harris to Tiwary, OUT, Tiwary goes this time, backs away for a slog, and ends up top-edging a short ball that Harris takes easily

SS Tiwary c & b Harris 13 (13m 9b 2x4 0x6) SR: 144.44


Harris to Pathan, OUT, two in two, Gilly finds some reason to smile. swings in, pitches full and continues inward to strike him on the pad, umpire Dar thinks he is a goner, and he is gone

AUK Pathan lbw b Harris 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 186/5   RJ Harris 3-1-31-2

Harris to de Villiers, 1 run, well bowled, 139.8 kph yorker, he manages to get his legs out of the way, and digs it out, they scamper the single as Harris rushes for the ball


Harris to Kaif, OUT, got 'em! Harris continues to get the wickets, another yorker, off the boot on to the leg stump

M Kaif b Harris 3 (6m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 75.00


Harris to Mithun, FOUR, one more yorker, and it goes for four, well, no justice for the ones hurling it in, inside edge that runs away to the fine leg boundary, 200 up for Bangalore


Harris to Mithun, 1 run, high full toss, swiped away towards covers


Harris to de Villiers, 1 leg bye, angles this one in on a length, he swivels for the pull, but it hurries on, and he gets it away towards short fine leg


Harris to Mithun, 1 run, ends with another one in the blockhole, it is squeezed away to long off, good comeback from Harris
