Indian Premier League, 7th match: Sunrisers Hyderabad v Royal Challengers Bangalore at Hyderabad (Deccan), Apr 7, 2013
Match tied (Sunrisers Hyderabad won the one-over eliminator)
7 April 2013 - night match (20-over match)

Vihari to Gayle, OUT, has he got him! Hanuma Vihari is the man! He comes and bowls a gentle offspinner from round the wicket, it is a quickish delivery and bounces slightly extra, Gayle goes for a cut, but it was too close and he edges it to the keeper.. Gayle has been taken out, what a blow! What are we going to do for the next 39 overs!!

CH Gayle c †Patel b Vihari 1 (6m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 8/1   TM Dilshan 2* (5b)   GH Vihari 0.1-0-0-1

Sharma to Dilshan, OUT, he knocks him over! It is a length delivery aimed at offstump, cuts in just enough to beat the batsman's forward prod and hits the top of off, pretty sight for Ishant, not so much for Dilshan ..

TM Dilshan b Sharma 5 (17m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

Royal Challengers Bangalore 22/2   V Kohli 9* (11b 1x4)   I Sharma 0.4-0-2-1

Mishra to Nair, OUT, strikes first ball! the second-highest wicket taker in IPL, bowls it flatter on the middle stump, the batsman comes forward but plays down the wrong line, he is hit in front of the middle as the ball straightens, the umpire doesn't take long to raise his finger.. Sunrisers are on a roll here..

KK Nair lbw b Mishra 9 (15m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 42/3   V Kohli 20* (23b 3x4)   A Mishra 0.1-0-0-1

Ashish Reddy to Kohli, OUT, he has taken it! Reddy has struck a big blow! He bowls another slower ball and Kohli goes forward to drives it to the leg side, but the length is shorter than Kohli thought it was, it bounces, catches the shoulder of the bat and pops up back towards the bowler, who dives forward to scoop up a good catch..

V Kohli c & b Ashish Reddy 46 (52m 44b 5x4 1x6) SR: 104.54

Royal Challengers Bangalore 85/4   MC Henriques 17* (20b 1x4)   A Ashish Reddy 1-0-7-1

Steyn to Agarwal, OUT, easy one as this one is caught at mid-off! Too eager to go after Steyn or what? It was an offcutter on a length outside off, the batsman tries to smash it over mid-off, but gets his timing all messed up, ends up giving up a gentle lob to the fielder there..

MA Agarwal c Ankit Sharma b Steyn 7 (15m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

Royal Challengers Bangalore 108/5   MC Henriques 33* (30b 4x4)   DW Steyn 3-0-26-1

Perera to Arun Karthik, OUT, the extra delivery earns him a wicket! Another catch at mid-off as the batsman tries to drive it over mid-off, he doesn't get the elevation and hits it flat, the fielder moves a step to his right and takes a good smart catch

KB Arun Karthik c Ashish Reddy b Perera 0 (4m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 114/6   MC Henriques 38* (35b 5x4)   NLTC Perera 4-0-21-1

Sharma to Henriques, OUT, slower delivery outside off, it's fuller in length and the batsman goes for a golf-swing, he had everything in his favour, but not the pace.. He ends up smacking it high towards midwicket where Cameron White runs backwards and completes the catch

MC Henriques c White b Sharma 44 (54m 40b 5x4 0x6) SR: 110.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 125/7   R Vinay Kumar 5* (2b 1x4)   I Sharma 3.1-0-22-2

Sharma to Vinay Kumar, OUT, a low full-toss outside off, the batsman wanted to crack it over extra cover, but gets a toe-end to that lobs it tamely to Sanga at extra cover

R Vinay Kumar c Sangakkara b Sharma 7 (9m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 175.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 127/8   M Kartik 0* (0b)   I Sharma 3.3-0-24-3
