Indian Premier League - 1st qualifying final

Royal Challengers Bangalore v Chennai Super Kings

Chennai Super Kings won by 6 wickets (with 2 balls remaining)

3.3

Ashwin to Gayle, OUT, and Ashwin strikes immediately after getting hit for a six again! And this is not the first time it has happened. I am not too sure about the decision, though. This was on offbreak that pitched short of a driving length and beat Gayle's sweep. Live time, I thought there was too much bounce and turn to be sure. Simon Taufel disagreed, and raised the finger. And as it so often happens, Simon Taufel is correct. Replays show it pitched in line with leg stump, turned a little, and skidded as opposed to bouncing too much. Would have hit the leg stump

CH Gayle lbw b Ashwin 8 (9b 0x4 1x6) SR: 88.88

Royal Challengers Bangalore 30/1   MA Agarwal 17* (12b 3x4)   R Ashwin 0.3-0-6-1

8.6

Bravo to Agarwal, OUT, Bravo's slower ball strikes. Agarwal, more a drive man, sees a fullish delivery and goes for it, gets only the toe end, and holes out to long-on

MA Agarwal c Bollinger b Bravo 34 (33b 5x4 0x6) SR: 103.03

Royal Challengers Bangalore 65/2   V Kohli 12* (12b 1x4)   DJ Bravo 2-0-12-1

11.5

Jakati to de Villiers, OUT, Jakati strikes back. de Villiers charges at him, looking to go over long-on, but gets a bit too close to it and doesn't get the elevation to clear long-on. Vijay completes the simple catch

AB de Villiers c Vijay b Jakati 11 (10b 0x4 1x6) SR: 110.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 85/3   V Kohli 21* (19b 2x4)   SB Jakati 2.5-0-25-1

16.4

Bollinger to Pomersbach, OUT, Timber! Pomersbach had the right idea. This was a length ball, he stood tall, and looked to bosh it over midwicket. However, he swung down the wrong line, and the off stump is out of the ground

LA Pomersbach b Bollinger 29 (18b 2x4 2x6) SR: 161.11

Royal Challengers Bangalore 133/4   V Kohli 39* (30b 3x4 1x6)   DE Bollinger 2.4-0-12-1
