View dismissal W Jaffer c †Kaul b Sreesanth 0 4 0 0 0.00
0.4 caught! Outstanding ball from Sreesanth, it pitched on a good length around off stump and seamed away from the right-hander, the line and length was accurate and Jaffer had to play at it, he was neither forward nor back and hung his bat out, the ball took the edge and Uday Kaul dived to his right to take a low catch 1/1
View dismissal V Kohli c Sreesanth b Pathan 34 36 5 0 94.44
12.1 caught! The change in bowling works, Pathan begins the over with a slower ball wide outside off stump, it might have been wide if Kohli had let it go, he tries to hit the ball straight but the change of pace foxes him and he ends up swatting a simple catch towards Sreesanth at long off 69/4
View dismissal CL White b Sreesanth 0 1 0 0 0.00
0.5 bowled him! Awesome bowling, it isn't the outswinger this time, the ball pitches on a good length and nips back into the right-hander instead of seaming away, White pushes forward at it with a large gap between bat and pad, the ball finds it and crashes into middle stump 1/2
View dismissal JH Kallis run out (Marsh) 0 3 0 0 0.00
3.3 Pathan to Kohli, what an awful mix-up, Kallis is run out, Pathan pitched the ball outside off stump and swung it back into Kohli who moved forward and pushed the ball towards point, he set off for the single but changed his mind after a few paces, Kallis however had run a long way down and was stranded near the striker's end when the throw from Shaun Marsh came to the bowler 15/3
View dismissal R Dravid* c Jayawardene b Singh 66 51 9 1 129.41
18.3 caught! That is a crucial moment in the game, Dravid tries to go over cover once again but gets a thick outside edge that flies straight to Jayawardene who judges the catch superbly at third man 124/9
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq lbw b Chawla 8 7 1 0 114.28
15.3 lbw! Misbah moved his front foot forward and tried to defend, the ball hit him in line with middle and would have gone on to hit off, Doctrove took a good long look at it and raised the finger 98/5
View dismissal P Kumar c †Kaul b Chawla 0 2 0 0 0.00
15.5 caught! Chawla strikes again, Praveen tries to cut one off the back foot without moving his feet, the ball bounces a bit more and takes the edge through to Uday Kaul, Bangalore once again lose two in an over and they've been severely set back once again 98/6
View dismissal DT Patil run out (Pathan) 4 1 1 0 400.00
16.1 Singh to Dravid, another awful mix-up, Dravid leans forward to drive a full ball firmly towards mid-on, it was Dravid's call and he didn't want the single, Patil however had run all the way down from the non-striker's end and was stranded as Pathan threw the ball back to VRV 102/7
View dismissal Z Khan b Chawla 0 1 0 0 0.00
17.2 bowled him! That is quite senseless batting, Zaheer should have been looking to give Dravid strike but he tries to play the big drive to a googly that pitches outside off stump and spins into him, the ball goes between bat and pad and hits off stump 116/8
View dismissal A Kumble run out (†Kaul) 3 7 0 0 42.85
19.2 Pathan to Steyn, another run out and Bangalore's innings is over, Steyn digs the yorker and the ball lobs up towards the keeper, Kumble sets off for the single from the non-striker's end but is caught short by the under-arm throw from Kaul who hits the stumps direct 126/10
