17.3

Vinay Kumar to Pollard, OUT, full and outside off, and has Kohli done it again?, Pollard punches the ball towards extra cover once more, Kohli is onto it once more and another direct hit hands Rayudu a diamond duck, Rayudu was looking to get back in the crease after taking a start, Vinay was in the way though, as he was backing away from the stumps to collect the throw, Rayudu's bat is lifted off the ground after it collides with Vinay's leg, he hasn't made it back into the crease, and he is sent on his way, not intentional from Vinay, tough luck for Rayudu

AT Rayudu run out 0 (2m 0b 0x4 0x6) SR: -

Vinay Kumar to Pollard, OUT, a team hat-trick for RCB, the danger man Pollard departs now, a short ball that Pollard looks to pull, top edges it and the ball swirls towards third man, Rampaul does well to collect that one, Vinay roars in delight, Mumabi losing their way
