14.2

Bravo to Pomersbach, FOUR, Muscle! Charges at Bravo and murders this short ball wide of long-on, who didn't have too much to move but couldn't. This went just too fast

Royal Challengers Bangalore 109/3   LA Pomersbach 14* (8b 1x4 1x6)   DJ Bravo 2.2-0-16-1

14.3

Bravo to Pomersbach, FOUR, Dropped? Not really, Dhoni is standing up, and this is a healthy enough edge for Pomersbach. Streaky but four

17.5

Ashwin to Tiwary, FOUR, full and wide, and Tiwary biffs this over extra cover. Not the best-looking extra cover drive but it does the job

18.2
