Indian Premier League, 57th match: Pune Warriors v Royal Challengers Bangalore at Pune, May 11, 2012
Royal Challengers Bangalore won by 35 runs
11 May 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Kumar to Dilshan, 1 wide, pitched on middle and going down the leg side, Dilshan did try to flick it away but misses


Kumar to Dilshan, 2 leg byes, short ball, it was quicker as well, went for the pull, hits the batsman on his back leg, high, and goes to the third-man fielder, good running gives them two


Kumar to Dilshan, no run, pitched up, on the off stump, wanted to drive it but the timing goes awry, back to the bowler


Kumar to Dilshan, 1 run, short ball, pulled away by Dilshan, goes straight to the deep square-leg fielder and all they get is a single


Kumar to Gayle, no run, was giving himself some room, almost moving down the track, wanted to blast it over mid-wicket, does not get the timing right, goes to Clarke, who shies at the non-striker's end, misses


Kumar to Gayle, no run, shorter and slower outside the off-stump, wanted to cut it but goes straight to the covers


Kumar to Gayle, no run, on the off stump, opens the face of the bat and guides it to the backward point fielder, decent start for Kumar

Royal Challengers Bangalore 29/0   B Kumar 1-0-2-0

Kumar to Dilshan, 1 run, length ball, on the middle, pushed to mid-off for a single


Kumar to Gayle, SIX, Ho ho! That is a six and one of the most effortless ones you would see on a cricket field, no back lift, does not move too much, just tees off over the bowler!


Kumar to Gayle, no run, short of length, on the off stump, cut away to the fielder at point


Kumar to Gayle, SIX, another one, six over long-on, and this was expansive, pitched outside the off stump and Gayle gave his full extension of arms, it is gone many miles


Kumar to Gayle, SIX, another one, third of the over, smacked over long-on yet again, and Gayle's making them pay for the run-out miss earlier. Three in four balls. Rahul Sharma's not even come on to to bowl.


Kumar to Gayle, SIX, and that is the fourth, almost an inevitable one, pitched up outside the off stump, and the Jamaican has bludgeoned it over long-off this time. The man is on fire. No really!

Royal Challengers Bangalore 66/0   B Kumar 2-0-27-0

Kumar to Dilshan, 1 leg bye, outside the off stump, wanted to slog it away, hits the pads, loud appeal but given not-out


Kumar to Tiwary, 1 run, yorker length, middle stump, dug out and driven to the off side


Kumar to Dilshan, 2 runs, slower one and pulled away, they get one, and come back for the second, the throw is a good one from Clarke but Uthappa takes some time to dislodge the bails


Kumar to Dilshan, 1 run, pitched up, driven to the off side, to extra-cover, where Smith fields for a single


Kumar to Tiwary, 1 run, down the track, it was a short ball and swings it over to deep mid-wicket but only a single


Kumar to Dilshan, no run, dropped? outside the off stump, pitched up, probably deviating away, wanted to go for a drive, missed and dropped by Uthappa

Royal Challengers Bangalore 138/2   B Kumar 3-0-32-0

Kumar to Tiwary, FOUR, down the track, pitched right up to the bat, drilled through the extra-cover region for a four!


Kumar to Tiwary, no run, short ball, was going back in his crease to pull it, but misses and Uthappa extends his hands vertically up to take that ball


Kumar to Tiwary, 1 run, outside the off stump, driven to long-off for a single


Kumar to de Villiers, 1 leg bye, slower one, tries to give himself room and pull, misses, hits his pads and they are off for a leg-bye


Kumar to Tiwary, 2 runs, pitched right up to the bat, driven to mid-on but the bowler was late in taking off to field that one, they come back for the second


Kumar to Tiwary, 1 run, full-toss, driven to long-off for a single

Royal Challengers Bangalore 158/3   B Kumar 4-0-40-0
